    • Michael: Oh, God, a minivan! What is Meredith's problem? Jim: Uh, I think she has a kid. Michael: Yeah she has one kid, no husband. And she's not going to find one driving one of these things around!

    • Michael: (after he fell off the toilet) Get Ryan! He needs to lift me, and he needs to clean me up a bit... Bring a wet towel. Toby: Ryan is (Ryan drags his finger across his throat) ...dead.

    • (Ryan takes a bite of string cheese) Toby: Wow, so you just dive right in, huh? Ryan: You know, around age 12 I just started going for it.

    • (Jim and Michael are driving Dwight to the hospital due to his concussion) Michael: (trying to coax a bottle of liquor from Dwight) Just give it to me...Give me the bottle or you're fired. Dwight: You can't fire me; I don't work in this van!

    • Michael: I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don't have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it's good for me, it's the perfect way to start the day.
