Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: A boss' salary isn't just about money. It is about perks. It- For example, every year I get a $100 gas card. Can't put a price tag on that.


Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: No need for consternation. Everything is under control.
Jan: [on the phone] Michael, last Friday, one of your employees attacked another employee in your office.
Michael Scott: It was a crime of passion, Jan. Not a disgruntled employee. Everyone here is extremely gruntled.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: No, don't call me a hero. Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs, and get a distress call from the Commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and fly around fighting crime. Those are the real heroes.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Okay, I want you to be Darryl and ask me for a raise because I need to try out some of these negotiation tactics on you.
Jim: Where'd you get that?

Jim: [mumbling] Didn't think you'd notice.

Quote from Jim

Jim: It was a little glass display case for his bobblehead. That would have made us even, I think. He saves my life, I get him a box for his desk toy. Even-Steven.
