The Office Recap "The Incentive"

The Office, "The Incentive": Best Lines of the Night

Andy Bernard's stepping up in his role as the Dunder Mifflin regional manager in this week's episode of The Office, and he's adopting some pretty unusual methods to motivate his team. While he's still a bit unsure of himself, he's nevertheless dedicated to doing what's best for his team, and I'm loving the extremes to which he's willing to go to keep them happy.


When his incentive program fails to inspire his employees, Andy gets a bit carried away making promises he doesn't really want to keep. It spins so far out of control that he agrees to get a tattoo on his butt! He freaks out a bit in the process, but the Dunder Mifflin gang surprises him with a heartwarming choice for his tattoo — a miniature Nard-dog! To find out some of my favorite quotes from Nard-dog, plus the best lines from the other Dunder Mifflin employees, just keep reading.
