    • Michael: This is an old adage, but they say when you find true love, you know within the first 24 hours. With Carol, I knew within the first 24 minutes of the second day I met her.

    • Angela: Where's Dwight? Benihana Waitress: Is he the hot one or the giant baby? Michael: The giant baby.

    • Michael: Bros before hos. Why? Because your bros are always there for you. They've got your back after your ho rips your heart out for no good reason. And you were nothing but great to your ho. And you told her she was the only ho for you. And that she was better than all the other hos in the world. And then.. suddenly she is not your ho no mo'.
