TV: The Office

I haven’t seen many episodes, but the ones I’ve seen have been hysterically funny. I just saw the one last night where Michael tries to frame the HR coworker he can’t stand by putting pot in his desk. (It was actually salad.) So funny. There was one from a couple years ago - you Office Trivia people will probably recognize it… Michael was giving a speech about respecting other cultures… it was :rotfl:

I LOVE “The Office.” Some of my favorite episodes are:

-The basketball game
-The diversity meeting
-Michael accidently “outs” Oscar as being gay
-Casino night–where Jim tells Pam he loves her
-Dwight protects Jim and sprays Roy with Mace

I think Dwight Schrute is the best character on a comedy since George Costanza on “Seinfeld.”:rotfl:

Yep - the diversity meeting… that’s the one I though was so funny…

Ok, Im a relativly new viewer…why oh why does Michale hate Toby so much?

One of my fav episodes is the one with the race to cure rabies…too funny.

And I just LOVE all the pranks pulled on Dwight.

JMJ

Toby is corporate so Micheal isn’t his boss and can’t tell him what to do. Toby isn’t Michael’s boss either but often tells Michael he can’t do something because it’s stupid, illegal, corporates won’t pay for it or whatever. Michael takes it personally.

Ok my favorite prank pulled on Dwight so far is Jim convincing him that it is Friday when it is really Thursday. I know it isn’t as flashy as some of the other pranks but it is priceless seeing Dwight running into the office while he is still trying to dress himself after he had got done saying that he had not missed a day when trying to get a raise the day before.

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Jim convincing him he is a vampire is a close second :smiley:

God bless

My favorite ep is the one with the bat. Jim acting like he’s slowly turning into a vampire because he was bitten. “This bread is so hot” “Jim, that garlic bread is ice cold” and rubbing his tongue over his incisors like they were “new”. All for Dwight’s benefit. Hilarious.

Michael going to Ryan’s business school and tells the business students:

There are four kinds of business: tourism, food service, railroads, and sales. And hospitals/manufacturing. And air travel.

Oh, Micheal.

And the kind of tender moment at the end when Michael goes to Pam’s art show and sincerely compliments her art and offers to buy one. Then she hugs him and comedy ensues.

So I have a question: Would you want to work with these people? I like watching them… but there is NO WAY I could spend my life in their “office.” They would seriously drive me nuts…

What about you?

I wouldn’t mind working with Jim, Pam, Phyllis, Stanley or Oscar. Not Michael or Dwight or the rest though.

Oh sure… pick the normal ones! :stuck_out_tongue:

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of what if this were a real office and you had to work there? So you worked with all of them… day in, day out. I think I’d rather poke my eyes out.

No way! I teach middle school and I’d rather spend time w/ that age group than Michael or Dwight :eek: .

I don’t work with normal people.:whacky: The normal ones keep quitting!

I would rather work at Dunder-Mifflin as long as the group I listed was there. But as they go on to greener pastures I’d want to leave to. As long as some normal people remain it makes it tolerable.

I love the show as well. I’d like to see a few episodes that center around Creed though. That guy is so crazy he’s hilarious.

I feel like Creed’s randomness and small tidbits of nonsense are what make him as hilarious as he is. If there was a whole episode of that, the shock value would be gone and he wouldn’t be as funny.

Just my :twocents:

And the best line in that "tender moment’: Michael tells Pam that her art is so good it looks like she "could have traced it’. :smiley:

Tonight’s episode is one of my favorites. It was absolutely hilarious…

“Boom, roasted…Boom, roasted…Boom, roasted”

Also, did anybody notice that when they gathered again in the break room (after Dwight set the place on fire), the vending machines were still empty? Kevin plundered them very fast…

Great show last night.

Since Dwight is my favorite character, any episode which is predominately about him will be great in my book.

By the way, I am going to start carrying a survival knife around my ankle… Just in case I ever have another CPR class. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

God bless

Who here’s with me when I say The Office is great?

Yup. Funniest show since Seinfeld. Brilliantly funny. One of the very few must-watch shows in our house. :thumbsup:

The only thing that annoys me is that they made Angela the office Christian, and then have her overall character be decidedly not Christian. :frowning:

It’s up there. I still think Arrested Development is better though.
