  • show Description
  • Based on the popular British series of the same name, this faster-paced American version follows the daily interactions of a group of idiosyncratic office employees at paper company Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch via a documentary film crew's cameras. Regional manager Michael (Steve Carell) thinks he's the coolest, funniest, best boss ever - which, of course, makes him the uncoolest, most obnoxious and annoying boss as far as his staff are concerned. Salesman Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) has always loved receptionist Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) and loves sabotaging his cube-mate, the know-it-all Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson). Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) started as a young, smart, self-possessed temp, but quickly figured out the real office politics despite Michael's attempts to instill the official point-of-view, and gets himself a job at corporate HQ in New York. The staff is rounded out by quiet Phyllis Lapin Vance (Phyllis Smith), beaten down by the working life Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker), office alcoholic Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery), up-tight Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey), formerly closeted homosexual Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez), stocky and uncouth Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner), ambivalent kleptomaniac Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), Sad Sack HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein), persistently love-struck Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling), icy corporate manager turned Michael's girlfriend Jan Levinson (Melora Hardin), former Stamford branch denizen and Cornell graduate Andy Bernard (Ed Helms), warehouse foreman Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson), and Pam's ex-fiancé Roy Anderson (David Denman).moreless

    • Angela: (accusing Meredith of stealing the $3,000) Oh, we know you did... or someone else did.

    • Angela: Did you talk to Kelly? Oscar: Yes. She said she didn't do it, then 45 minutes later the conversation ended.

    • Kevin: I didn't steal $3,000 from petty cash. I am not stupid. If I wanted to steal from this company, there are a lot of easier ways to do it. For example, I could steal people's coats and sell them on eBay.

    • Kevin: Angela thinks it's an insult when she calls me a genius, all sarcastic and whatnot, but technically, guess what? I am a genius. When I was a kid, I took an IQ test and I scored over 100. So, joke is on you, Angela.

    • Meredith: Yes. I'm a single mom. I would never do anything to jeopardize my kid. Oscar: I thought you had two kids. Meredith: My ex-husband took Wendy, the good one.

    • Meredith: Please. If I stole $3,000, I wouldn't be here. I'd be on a beach in Jamaica drinking Red Stripe. Kevin: Oh, I love Red Stripe. Oscar: I do, too. That's Jamaican beer? Meredith: Yeah. We should go out and get a beer after work. Or, hey, you want to go right now? Oscar: It's 11:15. Meredith: Yeah. So, that's too early?

    • (after learning of the problem) Kevin: This is the first I've heard of it. They never tell me anything. I like it that way.

    • Kevin: (to camera) We're in the process of interviewing everyone in the office. I think it's kinda fun. It's a great chance to catch up with people.

    • Kevin's ice cream flavor Fudge the Magic Dragon is a reference to the song "Puff the Magic Dragon" by Peter, Paul, and Mary.

    • Kelly: I kissed a girl and I didn't really like it.

      This is a reference to the Katy Perry song "I Kissed a Girl", which has the line: "I kissed a girl and I liked it".

    • When Michael first introduces Pam to the camera crew, he shouts, "Pam, Pam, Pam!" while knocking on her reception desk. This is a reference to The Flintstones character Bamm-Bamm, who would say their name the way that Michael says Pam's name.

    • Michael tells a manager, "You are a gentleman and a scholar." This line comes from the novel Catcher In The Rye by J.D Salinger. In it, the main character, Holden Caulfield says to one of his roommates, "You're a real prince. You are a gentlemen and a scholar, kid."

    • Michael mimics running in slow-motion and comments, "I'm the The Six Million Dollar Man." The Six Million Dollar Man was a TV show that aired in the 1970s, and revolved around a man who was nearly killed after a new government plane malfunctions and crashes. To save him he is rebuilt using bionic parts. Him running at super speeds was shown by using slow-motion.

    • Michael says, "Hey, I'm Moe," who was a character from The Three Stooges shorts, which centered around three good-hearted fools who had a knack for screwing up even the simplest task.

    • Michael tells Pam, "You've been X-ed." This catchphrase comes from The WB's The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, in which the star of the show would pull pranks on the public and celebrities. Once the joke had run its course, the star would deliver the show's tag line, "You've been X-ed."

    • Michael borrows the very popular and overused catchphrase "Wazzup" catchphrase from Budweiser commercials.
