Michael is in trouble once again as Jan busts him for declaring it's "Movie Monday" where everyone watches a movie and neglects work. Angela pushes Dwight to make a move on Michael's job while Jim and his new team play Call of Duty.
This is the first episode that documents the branch on a Monday.
In the scene where Jim accidently kills Andy in Call of Duty, Andy's player name is "HereComesTreble."
Michael: 'Hug it out, bitch.' That is what men say to each other after a fight. They hug it out, in doing so they just let it go, and walk away, and they're done. Not a good idea to say that to a woman, however, I've found. Doesn't translate.
Michael: Sounds like a good dentist.
Dwight: Oh yeah...
Michael: What's his name?
Dwight: (lying) Crentist.
Michael: Your dentist's name is crentist?
Michael: Huh... Sounds a lot like dentist.
Dwight: Maybe that's why he became a dentist.
Karen: (whispering) Look how cute he is. And he's trying to shoot with a smoke grenade.
Jim: I'm sorry, what are you whispering back there?
Karen: Nothing, just concentrate on turning around.
Jim: I'm trying, I just…
Karen: Just tap S then D.
Karen: Any last words? No?
(Gunshot) (Karen laughing)
Jim: (turns toward Karen) Wow. (turns away from Karen) Psychopath.
Josh: This is not working, okay? We are getting slaughtered out there.
Andy: It's the new guy.
Jim: Oh, I'm sorry; I don't know….what we're talking about.
Andy: See what I mean?
Josh: We just need a strategy, okay? We're gonna set up a trap in the gun room. All right, Jim, are you using the MP-40 or the 44?
Jim: Um, sniper rifle?
Josh: Jim in Carentan…
Andy: Are you playing for the other team?
Josh: You don't snipe in Carentan, okay?
Andy: Saboteur!! Saboteur!! I'm gonna kill you for real. This game..the game is over. I'm really gonna shoot you.
Michael: Business is like a jungle. And I am like a tiger. And Dwight is like a monkey that stabs the tiger in the back with a stick. Does the tiger fire the monkey? Does the tiger transfer the monkey to another branch? Pun. There is no way of knowing what goes on inside the tiger's head. We don't have the technology.
Dwight: Did you get anything good?
Dwight: New blouse? Halter top? Camisole? Teddy?
Michael: (referring to "Hug It Out Bitch") Not a good idea to say that to a woman however... I have found. It doesn't translate.
Jim: We didn't play many video games in Scranton. Instead, we'd do stuff like Pam and I would sometimes hum the same high-pitched note, and try to get Dwight to make an appointment with an ear doctor. And, uh, Pam called it Pretendinitis.
Pam: Movie Monday started with training videos. But we went through those pretty fast. Then we watched a medical video. Since then, it's been half-hour installments of various movies, with the exception of an episode of Entourage, which Michael made us watch six times.
Kelly: (chanting) Fashion show, Fashion show, Fashion show at lunch.
Pam: I have a little vacuum cleaner that's broken...If Dwight doesn't work out, maybe that could be manager
Dwight: What can I do?
Michael: You can get up.
Michael: You can get up. And you can hug it out, bitch.
Creed: I'm just looking.
Pam: Please go back to your desk.
Creed: In a minute.
Angela: I know that patience and loyalty are good and virtuous traits, but sometimes I just think you need to grow a pair.
Dwight: Reject a woman and she will never let it go. One of the many defects of their kind. Also, weak arms.
Jan: How would a movie increase productivity, Michael? How on earth would it do that?
Michael: People work faster after.
Michael: No, they have to make up for the time they lost watching the movie.
Michael: Movie Monday! The only cure I know for the Monday blues is Varsity Blues!
