Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Jim and Jo are in the conference room and Michael interrupts them, he enters and makes Jim's hair a mess. In the next shot, the moment Jo names Jim the new manager, Jim's hair is perfectly combed, like it was never messed up before.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Michael: I have been saying the word manager a lot, so whenever Jo thinks manager, she thinks of me. Camel cigarettes did the same thing with Joe Camel by making him look like a penis. I can't even go near a cigarette now without thinking of a penis and vice versa.

    • Ryan: Did you see Saw?
      Dwight: Of course I see-saw. I see-saw all the time.
      Ryan: No, uh, the movie, did you see the movie Saw?
      Dwight: Oh, yeah, great film. Almost as much fun as a see-saw.

    • Dwight: The new IT guy, Nick. I think he is the key. He is very trusting, he's looking for friends. He's been given an awesome amount of power and does not know how to wield it.
      Ryan: Like Frodo?
      Dwight: Why don't you just let me handle the Tolkien references, okay, dumb jock?

    • Michael: What are you reading?
      Oscar: The Atlantic.
      Michael: Oh! That is my favorite ocean!

    • Jo Bennett: Do you always stay seated when a lady enters the room?
      Dwight: I am treating you the same as a man, for whom I would also not stand. Unless it was the president or Judge Judy.

    • Andy: I've got some Valentines for my co-workers and my bro-workers.
