Michael Scott: Okay.
Dwight K. Schrute: I have to have an emergency crown put in.
Michael Scott: Ouchy.
Dwight K. Schrute: Yes. It's a new dentist. He's far. I might be gone three hours.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Angela: It's really happening.
Dwight K. Schrute: Yes.
Angela: We can make a difference here.
Dwight K. Schrute: I will make a difference here.
Angela: You alone? 'cause I thought together we were-
Dwight K. Schrute: Oh, please! Don't be naive. But you can be in charge of the women.

Quote from Pam

Pam: Well, I remember why I dress the way I do at work. But I'm gonna keep the clothes. I mean, it'll just be cool to have some after-work clothes that aren't pajamas.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Well, I guess it's time that I turn over the keys to the famous Sebring.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, thank you.
Michael Scott: It's a corporate lease, Dwight, you've earned it.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, thanks.
Michael Scott: What?
Dwight K. Schrute: Not my style.
Michael Scott: But you said you liked it. You've always admired it. And-
Dwight K. Schrute: But that was before. I'm thinking about getting something German, something with decent gas mileage. Plus, that convertible is a ridiculous choice for this climate.
Michael Scott: Take it back.
Dwight K. Schrute: No.
Michael Scott: That's my car.
Dwight K. Schrute: What did you-
Michael Scott: That's my car!
Dwight K. Schrute: Yes.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: I know, Dwight, I know. I know, I know.
Dwight K. Schrute: You know what?
Michael Scott: Jan called me about your little meeting!
Dwight K. Schrute: No.
Michael Scott: I know what you did. You-
Dwight K. Schrute: The Sebring's cool.
Michael Scott: I made the whole thing up, Dwight!
Dwight K. Schrute: It's cool, the Sebring's cool-
Michael Scott: Oh, do you? Do you like it?
Dwight K. Schrute: And has a cassette and a CD.
Michael Scott: How dare you? How dare you, Dwight?
Dwight K. Schrute: Don't fire me. Please, don't-
Michael Scott: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't fire you right here on the spot?
Dwight K. Schrute: I have excellent sales numbers!
Michael Scott: Not good enough!
Dwight K. Schrute: I'll do anything! Anything! Please, I'll do your laundry for a month! For a year!
Michael Scott: I have a laundry machine!
Dwight K. Schrute: I'm sorry. Anything- I'II- Please? Please?
Michael Scott: I don't know if I can trust you anymore.
Dwight K. Schrute: You can't. You can't, but I promise I'll never betray you again. What can I do, Michael? What can I do? What can I do? What can I do? What can I do?
Michael Scott: You can get up.
Dwight K. Schrute: What?
Michael Scott: Get up. And you can hug it out, bitch.
