Funny / The Office (US)

Season 1

  • In Diversity Day, Michael Scott's incredibly misguided attempt at a diversity seminar.
  • In Health Care, Jim and Pam coming up with fake diseases. It's so funny that it even causes Angela to laugh.
    Pam: So, like, let's say that my teeth turn to liquid and then they drip down the back of my throat. What would you call that?
    Jim: I thought you said you were inventing new diseases? That's spontaneous dental hydroplosion.
  • In Basketball, the entire trash talking scene between Jim and Pam, but especially this bit:
    Pam: Um, I think I'm gonna be up at the lake.
    Jim: I think I'll see you at the mall. Yeah.
  • In Hot Girl, Jim and Pam make up a conversation as they watch Dwight flirt with a woman selling purses.
    Jim (as Dwight) I'm going to be the prettiest girl in the ball.

    • And then getting subsequently banned from Chili's due to being overly drunk (which was canonically repealed in 2017).
    • From the same episode, Dwight banning the girl's bathroom.
  • "Conflict Resolution:" A list of Jim's pranks on Dwight were read out. Also doubles to show how much of a Jerk Ass Jim could be at times to him and is kind of sad.
    • "Whenever I typed my name, it said Diapers."
    • "Jim Halpert told me there was an abandoned infant in the women's room. When I went to save the child, I saw Meredith on the can."

    • "By the end of the day, my desk was two feet closer to the copier."
    • "Everyone has been calling me Duane all day."
  • In the beginning of "The Carpet", Pam has been on vacation for a week and Ryan has been taking her place behind the reception. The scene hangs a nice Lampshade on just how often Jim looks in Pam's direction each episode, so much that he can't help himself, even if Pam isn't there. Ryan isn't completely comfortable with it, but he has bigger problems to worry about... such as Michael, who apparently has been spending the week standing behind the blinds and staring really intensely at him.
    Ryan: Jim has been looking at me... kind of a lot all week. I would be creeped out by it, but it's nothing compared to the way Michael looks at me.
  • The pre-credits teaser where Dwight has replaced his chair with an exercise ball, and is bouncing around on it. Jim watches for a few minutes, then goes over and stabs the ball, causing Dwight to fall to the ground. note 
  • "The Injury."
    Michael: (from inside the bathroom) Get Ryan! He needs to lift me, and he needs to clean me up a bit. Bring a wet towel.

    • Then later, when Michael makes it out of the bathroom: "Ryan, who is supposed to be DEAD..."
    • Jim and the spray bottle.
  • "Christmas Party":
    • Oscar has this hilarious line: "I got Creed. And to tell you the truth, I don't know anything about Creed. I know his name's Creed. I know he works right over there. I think he's Irish and I ... I got him this shamrock keychain."
    • Creed getting Jim. All it is, is an old flannel shirt wrapped in a plastic bag. "Creed obviously forgot to get me something, so he just went into his closet and dug out this little number." Cut to Creed. "Yeah, that's exactly what happened."
    • Jim telling the cameramen all of the inside jokes he's putting in Pam's gift because Christmas is the "time to tell people how you feel." Cue a silent but sure moment of Did I Just Say That Out Loud?
    • Michael makes everyone swap presents because he doesn't like his. The results are hilarious.
      • Ryan's gift.
        Ryan: *Pulls out a flowery desk-stand reading Kelly*
        Stanley: That was for Kelly.
        Ryan: I figured.
      • Dwight's gift was a paintball lesson with him.
      • Everyone wanted the iPod.
      • At the last swap, Pam chooses the iPod and Dwight chooses the teapot (Jim's intended gift to Pam.) Cue You Have Got to Be Kidding Me! from Jim. He spends the entire episode trying to get it back.
    • Dwight rubs Pam's gift in Jim's face by saying he'll use the spout to drain his nose when he gets sick. Jim stares straight to the camera. Cut to him saying he can't handle the idea that the gift will be used for that.
    • Pam tells Roy about her iPod, to which he reveals that he was going to get her one for Christmas. Clearly touched, she asks what he's going to get her which he vaguely replies "a sweater or something". Cue blank stare from Pam and a cut to a sympathetic-looking Jim.
    • The ending of the episode. Right as Michael asks Meredith if she needs a ride, he turns see her topless. Cue him quickly taking a picture and shakily walking away.
  • Ryan's wordless talking-head reaction when he overhears Dwight and Angela planning a ridiculously obvious tryst:
    Dwight: What about that...meeting later? To...discuss finances?
    Angela: Yes. (whispering audibly) But don't expect any cookie.
    Dwight: But what if...I'm hungry?
    Angela: (severely) No cookie.
    Ryan: (eyes dart left...then to the camera...then right...then opens his mouth, sighs, and gives up)
  • Dwight trying to leverage his "offer" when Michael has to get rid of someone in the 2nd season Halloween episode.
    • Creed convincing Michael to fire someone else in the same episode.
  • "Email Surveillance"
    • Michael sees a man in a (Sikh) turban coming into the building and tells everyone to hide and pretend they're not there. Dwight immediately ducks under his desk.
      Michael: The IP guy and I did not get off to a good start.
    • When Jim asks Pam if Roy can come to the party, she says that he won't be able to make it. Jim nods, briefly smiles at the camera, and leaves.

    Pam: Oh no.
    • Dwight's attempts to get a promotion.
  • In "Sexual Harrassment," Michael has been asked to lay off the inappropriate jokes, including "That's What She Said." Jim immediately starts baiting him. He doesn't last long.
    • The incredibly cheesy Crossing The Line video.
  • "Booze Cruise":
    • Jim bets the cameraman that, on the yacht, Michael will cry out "I'm the King of the World!" within the hour or he'll give his next paycheck to him. Michael stands at the end of the ship and crying out "I'm the King of the World!"
      • Jim taps his watch and nods to the cameraman.
    • Jim's feelings for Pam have become so blatant that when he's asked who he would save in the case of a fire, the cameraman simply zooms in on Pam, who's at least twenty feet away.
  • "Take Your Daughter to Work Day":
    Ryan: Stanley just yelled at me. That was probably one of the most terrifying experiences in my life...
    • There were several funny moments in "Take Your Daughter to Work Day," but the best had to be Dwight reading Struwwelpeter to the kids.
    Michael: No one wants to hear about your Nazi grandmother.
    Sasha: What's a Nazi?
  • "Drug Testing". Pam and Jim's regulations for Jinx are that if you are Jinxed, you have to buy the Jinx-er a coke. Unfortunately, the machine is out, leaving Jim unable to speak. Cue a series of ear-to-ear grins from Pam as Jim suffers horribly.
    • Later, Pam volunteers Jim to speak about a loved one affected by drug use. Jim then proceeds to act choked up, managing to look convincingly depressed without saying a word. Pam isn't even mad that he got out of talking, she's impressed.
  • "Casino Night", in which Jim convinces Dwight that he has telekinesis abilities and demonstrates by making the coat-rack behind Pam sway. Dwight watches in awe. Cut to an interview with Pam, who silently holds up an umbrella with a hook handle.

Season 3

  • The episode where Oscar gets outed for being gay. Michael tries to quell the tension by at first hugging Oscar after angering him but then goes the long mile by kissing him. Interestingly, the kiss was improvised and the shock and confusion of the cast members, save Michael, was genuine.
  • "Your dentist's name is Crentist..."
  • "Game's over, I'm going to kill you for real."
  • When Jim dresses up as Dwight. Which leads later to Dwight pulling a reversal.
  • Jim sending faxes to Dwight made out to him from Future!Dwight
  • Jim was supposed to hire a male stripper for the women's bachelorette party in "Ben Franklin". He hired a Benjamin Franklin impersonator instead. He then tells Dwight that this is, in fact, the real Benjamin Franklin, which leads to two absolutely hilarious scenes of Dwight interrogating said impersonator to prove that Jim is messing with him, especially when said impersonator happens to answer all his questions correctly.
  • "Convict":
    • Prison Mike. Just... Prison Mike.
      "The worst thing about prison was the Dementors. They were flyin' all over the place, and they were scary. And then they'd come down and they'd suck the soul outta ya body, and it hoit!"
      • "I am here to SCARE YOU STRAIGHT!"
      • He tells Ryan "You would be the belle of the ball! Don't drop the soap! DON'T DROP THE SOOOOAP!"
    • Kevin: I had to have Martin explain what he was in prison for three times, because it sounds a lot like what I do here every single day.
  • The phone prank on Andy, especially its conclusion.
    • There's also Andy's hilarious attempts at wooing Pam, culminating in his singing "Rainbow Connection" in a falsetto voice.
  • Going by Todd Packer's definition of "Separate But Equal", Michael offers to hire a male stripper for Phyllis' bachelorette party:
    Angela: No. A man is not going to remove his clothes in this office.
    Meredith: SHUT UP, ANGELA!
  • When Stanley and Ryan try to sell together in "Travelling Salesmen", Ryan offers to make the pitch whilst Stanley critiques him. What he doesn't know is that Stanley's clients are all black. Cue him clamming up from the awkwardness. Stanley laughs all the way back to the office.
  • Drunk!Jim and his "Closer To Fine" duet with Andy ("TUNA! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!"), ending with him crashing his bicycle into a hedge.
  • In "Branch Closing", how Michael breaks the news.
    Michael (in an interview): The best thing that I can do right now is put on a brave face and be their leader.
    (Cut to Him in the present)
    Michael: It's over. We're all screwed.
  • Andy falling into the lake in the sumo suit in "Beach Games":
    Angela: (trying to sabotage him) I don't understand what you want from me.
    Andy: Angela, it's pretty simple. Look at what I am doing and go tell somebody it!
    • He's seen twice more during the remainder of the episode, first floating in the background of a talking head with Michael and once more when it's dark and he still lies in the water and is trying to get the attention of a passing car.
      • The sumo fight when Stanley roars and attacks Jim is also hilarious.
    • Creed in the same episode, catching a fish with his bare hands and eating it, only to find out later that Michael brought hot dogs.
    • Dwight's coal "walk" (crawl might be a better word).
    • The Stinger, in which (almost) the whole bus sings the opening theme of The Flintstones, Michael even bellowing WILMAAAAAAAAA! at the end.
  • When Dwight traps a bat in a garbage bag over Meredith's head.
  • In "The Cocktail", Jan catches herself doing it when Michael isn't even there.
    Jan: Why is this so hard? (beat) That's What She Said. Oh my God, what am I saying?
  • "Creed is eating an apple. I found a potato"
  • As a way of welcoming the Stamford transferees to Scranton, Michael and Dwight have made a video called "Lazy Scranton". It... it has to be seen to be believed. Just as funny is Michael's interpretation of the The Blair Witch Project, which was the video Jim got to see on his first day.
  • Pam asks Phyllis for advice on a date. Phyllis suggests ordering the most expensive item to prove she's worth it. Stanley, without looking up from his crossword, says "If you do that, you'll have to put out." Phyllis admits "Well, yeah, you will have to put out."

Season 4

  • "I... declare... BANKRUPTCY!"
  • With Pam's help, Jim tricking Dwight into thinking that the company's automated ordering service has become sentient.
    What am I?
    • While you were typing that I searched every database in existence and learned every fact about everything. And mastered the violin. Oh, and sold more paper.
  • Michael deliberately misunderstanding his GPS and driving his car into Lake Scranton.
    "Computers are about trying to murder you in a lake."
    • Deliberately?
      • Driving into that lake was too dumb even for Michael. Many are of the opinion that he did it deliberately to prove a ridiculous made-up point about new methods versus old, because he was angry at Ryan. Of course, Michael isn't particularly self-aware, so he might even have convinced himself that it was an accident.
    • From the same episode, "WHERE ARE THE TURTLES?!?!"
    • As well as:
    Dwight: I'm losing control of my bladder!
    Jim: Oh my God. Oh my God. Karen is back.
    Michael: Take her to a motel. Make love to her, Jim.
    Jim: No, I'm not doing that.
  • Michael's goodbye present for Toby. Also that he has so many lying around in his car for some reason.
    • Toby's entire Exit Interview was hilarious.
      Michael: I just have some questions that I was gonna ask. Um... Who do you think you are?
      Toby: I'm Toby.
      Michael: Yeah. Correct. Um... What gives-what-what gives you the right?
      • To give context for this, Michael has been looking forward to reaming Toby during the exit interview. But he also wants to impress Holly, so when she sits in on the meeting he's left hilariously confused, trying to reading his angry questions in a nicer way.
    • When Holly says she wants to hear Toby's answer to the question, "What would you improve about Dunder Mifflin?"
    Michael: (ridiculously covers his face from Holly and whispers to Toby) I'll kill you.
    Toby: I guess everything's okay
    • Michael's parody of "Goodbye, Stranger" that he sings on Toby's last day. He is way too enthusiastic about this.
  • The season four blooper reel where Michael reveals that he ordered the pizzas from the bad pizza place and the entire cast freaks out.
    • From the same blooper reel: "WE GET TO GO HOME!"
      • What made it for me, is that if you didn't know it was a blooper, it looks like everyone breaks down in laughter at the sheer absurdity of that idea.
  • Kelly's trash smack-talk to Pam over Darryl owning Jim at ping-pong.
    Your boyfriend's so weak, he needs steroids just to watch baseball!
    Were Jim's parents first-cousins who also sucked at ping-pong?
  • In the season 4 episode, "Dunder Mifflin Infinity," Kelly tells the now-corporate Ryan that she is pregnant with his baby. This reveal is immediately followed by a talking head where Kelly just shakes her head to the camera.
  • Jan and Michael's dinner party with guests Jim and Pam and Andy and Angela which reaches Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? level awkwardness.
    • Jan playing for them a song by her former teenage assistant Hunter and his band "The Hunted":
      ''You took me by the hand
      Made me a man
      That one night(One night)
      You made everything all ri-i-ight..."
      • Even better is how, while everyone else is rightfully disturbed by this, Jan dances sensually while Andy very clearly enjoys the song while entirely missing the point.
    • Pam's reaction to Dwight and his babysitter showing up. She said in a loud whisper "Awesome!"
    • While giving Jim and Pam a tour, Jan shows off her and Michael's bedroom. Jan quickly folds up a camera on a tripod while Pam gives a WTF look.
    • Michael Scott is horrible at Charades.
    • The dinner party culminates with Michael and Jan getting in a huge fight, and Michael screaming "That's what she said!" at the top of his lungs. This would be dramatic, but Steve Carrell has one of the funniest screams on TV.
  • In "Money", when Jim and Pam are driving up to Schrute Farms, Mose starts running alongside their car, for no discernible reason. It kind of freaks Pam out.
    • One of the theme rooms at Schrute Farms is "Irrigation". It just has random bits of pipes stuck on all the walls.
  • "Branch Wars" is absolutely hilarious. In an effort to keep Stanley in Scranton, Michael and Dwight rope Jim into a trip to Utica to raid the place there...
    • Their disguise consists of a warehouse uniform (a female one for Jim) and a fake mustache. Just... take a look for yourself.
    • Michael and Dwight finding, moving and getting trapped underneath the giant copier. You don't actually see anyhing, you only get to hear about it through the walkie-talkie, which Jim uses to keep in touch with them while he stays on the lookout.
      • "I'm losing control of my bladder!"
    Michael: Leave us, Jim! Leave us! Save yourself!
    Dwight: No! Don't leave us. Help us. We need help, Jim.
    Jim: Okay, first of all, stop using my name.
    • Then Karen, Jim's ex who is the regional manager at Utica, spots Jim at the parking lot. Michael asks him to distract her, while still wrestling with the giant copier.
      Michael: Take her to a motel. Make love to her.
      Jim: No, I'm not doing that!
      Michael: Just say you want to get back together.
      Jim: No! I am not doing that...
      Michael: It doesn't have to mean anything. Just... do it for Stanley. Come on, Jim, just climb on top of her and think of Stanley.
    • At the same time that conversation is going on, Jim does everything he can to stay out of Karen's sight, including telling the camera crew to stay down. When they don't listen, Jim makes this hilarious "what the hell is wrong with you?" gesture, while Karen already appears in the background.
      • Meanwhile, Michael might be dying.
        Michael: If this is it for me, promise me something... Host the Dundies.
  • In "Job Fair," Michael tries to convince a student to take an internship at Dunder Mifflin, even though he flatly rejected him earlier, and he makes comments Pam's office romances that force her to leave.
    Michael: Also, I would never say this to her face, but she's a wonderful person and a gifted artist.
    Oscar: (astounded) What?! Why wouldn't you say that to her face?
    • In the same episode, Andy driving a golf cart into a sand pit.
  • In "Local Ad," Andy tries, and fails, to remember the Kit-Kat Jingle, thinking it's for applesauce, Chrysler cars, football cream, before finally settling on Fancy Feast.
    • "Limitless paper in a paperless world."
    • Darryl's Dunder-Mifflin theme song.

Season 5

  • When Michael finds out Toby has returned.
  • Dwight arrives at the office to find every one of his possessions wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. He gives Jim an annoyed look and says how easy it will be to undo. As he says this, he tosses his briefcase onto the desk and sits in his chair...only for it to collapse. The desk and chair weren't covered in wrapping paper, they were made of wrapping paper.
  • When Jim attaches a suspicious looking red wire to the back of Dwight's computer, leading to a hilarious visual gag.
  • After Dwight boasts that he does not waste any time at work, Jim carries around a stopwatch to keep track of any time not spent on work related activity. It culminates with him discussing The Remake of Battlestar Galactica, and deliberately gushing about things like "Klingons" and "Wookies", and tells Andy that it's "practically a shot-for-shot remake" of the original. Dwight is struggling with every fiber of his being to focus on his work.
  • Dwight's "fire drill" has been called one of the funniest scenes in sitcom history and for good reason.
    Michael:Oh My God! It's happening! Everyone stay calm. Stay calm! STAY F**KING CALM!! EVERYBODY JUST F**king CALM DOWN!!
    Michael: Okay, we're trapped, everyone for himself!
    Angela: Pull me up!
    Oscar: You're too heavy!
    Angela: I only weigh eighty-two pounds! Save Bandit! (throws her cat up into the ceiling; cat plummets to the ground with an angry yowl)
    • Michael to Stanley while he's having a heart attack:
    • Followed by Michael trying to force his wallet into Stanley's mouth to keep him from "swallowing his tongue."
    • Kevin accidentally trampling the cameraman (and raiding the snack machine) counts as well.
  • Pretty much all of "Stress Relief," really, but especially Michael's revenge-roast of everyone in the office:
    "Jim, you're six-eleven and you weigh ninety pounds, Gumby has a better body than you. Boom, roasted. Dwight, you're a kiss-ass. Boom, roasted. Pam, you failed art school, boom, roasted. Meredith, you've slept with so many guys you're starting to look like one. Boom, roasted. Kevin, I can't decide between a fat joke or a dumb joke. Boom, roasted. Creed, your teeth called: your breath stinks. Boom, roasted. Angela—where's Angela? Oh, there you are, I didn't see you behind that grain of rice. Boom, roasted! Stanley! You crush your wife during sex and your heart sucks. Boom, roasted. [Stanley starts laughing] Oscar you are... [distracted by Stanley] ...Oscar, you're gay! Andy, Cornell called, they think you suck! And you're gayer than Oscar. Boom, roasted!"
    • Stanley laughs like a kazoo.
    • Michael's experience with a CPR training dummy.
    Michael: No, Rose. They are not breathing. ... And they have no arms or legs.
    Rose: N- That's not part of it.
    Michael: Where are they?
    • The CPR trainer instructs Michael to compress the dummy's chest to "Stayin' Alive" for the correct rhythm; he mistakenly starts up "I Will Survive" instead.
    • Then as the whole session goes to hell, Dwight cuts off the dummy's face and scares everyone by wearing it over his own a la Silence of the Lambs.
    David Wallace: Can you tell me why you had to cut the face off the dummy?
    Dwight: I didn't think it was very realistic in the movie, and it turns out: it's pretty realistic.
    • The "roast of Michael Scott" is also absolutely hysterical.
  • Andy and Dwight's duel. What could have been a really horrifying story was Played for Laughs quite successfully. The kicker being the office's realization that Andy was going to successfully run over Dwight by keeping his Prius under 5 MPH, rendering it silent - to which Oscar, impressed, noted that his old wingman 'deserved the win,' to general agreement.
  • Another "quick cut to Creed and that's it" gag:
    Kelly: I swallowed a tape worm last night. It's going to grow up to three feet inside of me, and then it eats all of my food so that I don't get fat. And then after three months, I take some medicine, and then I pass it. Creed sold it to me. It's from Mexico.
    Creed: That wasn't a tapeworm.
  • Midway through "Weight Loss", Jim notes in a talking head that Michael is doing so well with Holly, which he says is because Holly is kind of a major dork. Cut to Michael and Holly rapping in the warehouse.

Season 6

  • As a post-honeymoon gift, Dwight gives Jim a duck mallard with an Incredibly Obvious Bug. For the rest of the episode, Jim screws with him by playing loud music, giving the mallard away, talking directly into it, etc. Eventually it is thrown away. Then in The Tag Dwight sneaks back into the office and takes out a pen he put there at the beginning of the episode. "Do you really think I'd put my primary listening device in a wooden mallard? I'm not insane."
  • Andy's 12 Days of Christmas gifts to Erin. Despite the fact it was an incredibly stupid idea, the thought process and reasoning behind his over the top gift is hilariously touching. And the fact that Erin is such good-natured, it's also funny to watch her overly polite reaction asking her Secret Santa to please stop, or lack of anger upon finding out, despite having a noticeably painful facial injury.
  • Dwight's attempts to make himself infertile so he won't produce a baby with Angela yet won't break the contract they made. He held his crotch up to a microwave and put it under a ton of physical stress, all the while yelling from the pain that arises from doing something that stupid.
  • Michael and Co's version of Le Parkour.
  • In the gossip episode, Creed's response to the rumor that he has asthma:
    Creed: "If I can't scuba, then what's this all been about? What have I been working towards?"
  • When Michel fell into the koi pond and everyone cuts him up about it. "Hey Michael did you Find Nemo?" "Don't you mean Koi Story?" "When you fell in did you flounder?"
  • Dwight impersonating Kevin, Stanley, and Toby while calling David Wallace's office.
    • Also, when he shows the cameras that he has various wigs for impersonating the office staff, including Kevin, Phyllis, and Stanley.
  • Pam utters a Big "NO!" after discovering Michael is sleeping with her mother. Made funnier by a break; in this case, she runs out of the office in a Big "NO!", and the show soon cuts to a commercial break and upon return, she's still in the midst of her Big "NO!" in the parking lot.
  • "Frazzled" Jim when Pam is going into labor and refusing to go to the hospital. The best moment was when her contractions were coming within 5 to 7 minutes and she still refused to go to the hospital. Jim holed up in a hallway going through motherhood books.
    Jim: Five to seven minutes. (tosses book aside) Five to seven minutes. (tosses book aside) Six minutes. Different, but not really.
  • At the hospital, Pam accidentally breastfeeding the wrong baby.
  • Erin completely losing it at a restaurant when Michael tells her Andy was engaged to Angela. Suddenly Michael is the normal one for once:
    Michael: What are you doing?
    Erin:(covering her face with her hair)"In the foster home my hair was my room."
  • Jim's reaction to finding out that Michael slept with Pam's mom in "The Lovers".
    Jim: Who's the lucky lady?
    Michael: Pam's mom. Helene, from the wedding.
    Jim (smiling): You're messing with me. You did not have sex with Pam's mom.
    Michael: Big time.
    Jim (still smiling): What kind of car does she drive?
    Michael: She drives a green Camry—
    Jim: *bleep* (no longer smiling)
    • It gets him so mad that he cusses Toby out when the latter just tries to say hi.
  • Dwight hassles Kevin for the location of the leads, and then automatically interprets his answer as code.
    Dwight: Meredith, take off your dress!
    Meredith: Okey-dokey.
    Kevin: No, dear God! They're in the trash can! In the kitchen!
    Meredith: It's coming off anyway.
  • After Erin and Andy share their first kiss, there's a beat just before Andy starts Scatting inexplicably. And then stops.
  • Near the beginning of Niagara, we see that Michael has tied cans and painted "GOING TO A WEDDING" onto his car. Later, as he leaves with Dwight for the wedding, we find that the cans were still full; they bounce along and explode, showering the street and parked cars with soda.

Season 7

  • Nepotism has almost the entire office do a lipdub to "Nobody Can Do" by Human Beanz. Amusingly, Angela isn't willing to be a part of the video, but Stanley (albeit somewhat reluctantly, only telling Toby that he's behind) and Dwight are.
  • In "Counseling," a wronged Dwight tries to re-enact Vivian's Crowning Moment of Awesome from Pretty Woman. The gang also tries to "Pygmalion" him into a gentleman, only for it to fall apart. Then we see why he was kicked out of the store.
    It was BEET JUICE!
  • Michael's proposal to Holly. He spends the entire episode trying to pick the perfect moment to pop the question to Holly. Eventually this leads to one of the best Crowning Moment of Heartwarming in the show....until the fire sprinklers are set off in the room they're in because of all the candles - and even then it's still heartwarming because Michael, instead of getting upset that his perfect moment had been ruined, is laughing hysterically along with Holly, showing how much he's grown and how good Holly is for him.
  • In "Classy Christmas, pt. 1", Dwight finally turns the table on Jim. Jim goes into the parking lot for a planned snowball fight but Dwight isn't there. Upon turning around, he sees that the doors have been padlocked shut. Cue Oh, Crap! face. Dwight bursts out of a snowman and begins pelting Jim with a backpack full of snowballs.
  • In one cold open, Stanley mistakenly drinks Jim's orange juice instead of his coffee and doesn't realize it. This revelation leads the entire office to attempt to get Stanley to notice things like Kevin and Phyllis switching places, Andy shirtless, Dwight with a pony, and Michael with false teeth and a hand puppet. He doesn't notice a thing, baffling the entire office, except for the clock running five minutes slow.
  • Todd Packer in Threat Level Midnight: "If doing The Scarn is gay — then I'm the biggest queer on Earth!"
    • Pretty much this entire episode is nonstop hilarity.
    • Karen's line was so over-the-top that the documentary crew went all the way just to ask her about it.
  • And that's how you do the Scarn!
  • In "Michael's Last Dundies" Michael shows a short film where he impersonates Angela, Phyllis and Jim. The last one he interprets as wearing an earring and having a hipster personality:
    "I totally don't know where Michael is, dude. Hey you wanna listen to some records?"
  • In "Goodbye Michael" the fact that Michael's last, barely audible line is "That's What She Said."
  • In "PDA", Pam and Jim get drunk at a champagne brunch and spend all episode trying to find a place to have sex in the office (they and Kevin are the only ones who haven't). They succeed, emerging with ruffled hair and smirks.
  • Creed's attept (the key word being attempt) of being a manager.

Season 8

  • In "Jury Duty" Andy says his nickname in school was actually King Butt because he had a king-sized butt.
    • Also in "Jury Duty," Jim's "And then 3 more days happened..."
  • Jim's prank in the Cold Opening of "Tallahassee". Figuring that Dwight was going to let himself into Jim's room to wake him up, Jim's sets up an elaborate crime scene in it, complete with an open money briefcase and "IT WAS DWIGHT" hastily scrawled on a door in red. Dwight and Erin's expressions of sheer Oh, Crap! were truly a sight to behold, especially when Jim himself falls out of a closet next to them.
  • In possibly one of the best of Jim's pranks in a long time, while he is at the dentist, he and Pam get Steve, an actor friend of theirs who is Asian to pretend to be Jim. This completely freaks Dwight out. He tries to prove he's not Jim by getting a family photo from Pam's desk but is shocked to find instead of picture Asian Jim posing with Pam and their two Asian children!
    • Even funnier is that Asian Jim gets a moment to give the Jim stare towards the camera when Dwight shoves the picture of Jim and Pam into his face.
  • Jim trying to escape talking to Robert California in "Mrs. California" including rolling and crawling out of the office, getting the security guy to close the gate on him when he tried to leave the office and climbing the ladder to the roof, losing a shoe in the process.

Season 9

  • Dwight and Angela trying to learn more about homosexuality by asking Toby where gayness comes from.
  • Andy delivers a speech about how getting rid of a safety net will motivate one to succeed. He uses Cortez burning his soldier's ships as an example, then admits that it was a "huge dick move".
  • A montage of all the times Kevin screamed: "I have to go to the bathroom!". In one he jumped out of his car in the middle of the parking lot.
  • The cold open from "Promos" where Phyllis is listening to the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey on audiobook and clearly enjoying it much to the distress of everyone else in the office. Dwight dumps a bucket of cold water on her and Andy takes away her iPod, promising she'll get back at the end of the day. Cut to Andy in his office listening to it and getting aroused, then getting a bucket of cold water from off camera!
  • In "Lice", Jim keeps biting his lip whenever he tries to speak. In his talking-head interview, he acts like it's no big deal. Until he bites his lip bragging about that, at which point he loses his temper, rips off his mic and storms out.
  • In one episodes' Cold Opening, Dwight's busy cleaning out a cabinet, only to set out on a quest to find the Holy Grail by following a series of clues hidden within the office. Eventually, Pam calls Jim up & asks if he sent Dwight on a quest for the Holy Grail; Jim thinks for a moment & laughs, realizing that he did (apparently he set it up years ago, and forgot about it until now).
  • Kevin and Andy's "night" after the cupcakes.
  • Dwight's proposal to Angela, after nearly crashing their cars
    "This is a ring, taken from the buttocks of my grandmother, put there by the patriarch of the Coors dynasty, melted in a foundry run by Mennonites."


  • In "Goodbye Michael", one deleted scene has Michael trying to play 'one last game of sudoku with a brother' and starts grasping at Santley's sudoku book only to drop it. Out spills cards... pornographic cards. You could feel the embarrassment. Stanley's excuse only becomes funnier with his reaction.
    Stanley: It's called "hentai" and it's art.
