The Office Recap "Christmas Wishes"

The Office's "Christmas Wishes": Best Lines of the Night

This year's holiday episode of The Office kicks off with Andy being an authoritarian, but adorable, choral director, leading the crew in his rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." It's the first Christmas in history without Michael Scott playing Santa, and the Nard Dog has big shoes to fill. In true Dunder Mifflin style, they're throwing a big bash, and Andy decides to grant everyone in the office one Christmas wish.

One Christmas miracle comes in the form of a "darkly erratic" Robert California, while another highlight is one of the most epic air-guitar sessions ever seen on the small screen. Ultimately, though, this episode is about Erin's lingering feelings for Andy, and his own confusion about whether or not he reciprocates. I'm not sure how to feel about this. Are we supposed to be happy that they might possibly get back together? Or do we just want Erin to get a sweet boyfriend who adores her even more? "Christmas Wishes" is hands down one of my favorite episodes of the season. To find out my favorite lines from this awesome episode, just keep reading.

  • "Now, look, I may not have a great laugh like Santa or a flying sled. But I'll tell you what I do have: a Prius, a heart of freaking gold, and an American Express green card." — Andy, on his holiday wishes
  • "It actually makes me like Christmas less. Me. Christmas." — Angela, on Andy's caroling
  • "Just give me 'plain baby Jesus lying in a manger' Christmas!" — Stanley, on Christmas after seeing Lewis Black
  • "I actually appreciate the human intimacy. I feel like a kitten being cradled by a gorilla." — Robert California, on Kevin's hug
  • "Good thing I brought my falconry gloves." — Dwight, putting away a porcupine
  • "You can't click on these Kardashian links. That's why you have so many viruses." — Ryan, to Kelly on her computer problems

Did I miss when Andy/Erin were actually an item? They keep referring to each other as respective exes but I was under the impression they never actually dated. She broke up with Gabe and then Andy turned her down. That's how I remember it. Anyways, good episode. Still miss Michael. I think I'll watch the Secret Santa episode...
