Did you watch the season six premiere of The Office? We already chatted about the show weeks back, and producer Paul Liberstein warned us about a "wackier" Michael Scott — and boy, is he. Michael spreads outlandish lies all around the watercooler in an effort to feel included, and his plan backfires as usual. The episode is full of the hilarious quips that we've come to expect from the Office writers, and here are a few of my faves. (Add your own in the comments, but be warned, I've included a spoiler!)
- "There's no fridge in here."—Andy
The opening of the episode with Michael, Dwight, and Andy trying parkour — the Internet sensation that's also featured in a James Bond film — is my favorite part of the entire episode.
- "We haven't had interns in a while. . . ever since Michael's Monica Lewinsky incident. He didn't do anything sexual; he just made far too many Monica Lewinsky jokes."—Pam
The Summer interns are one of the best parts of the episode for me — if for no other reason than just to see the over-the-top ways Ryan and Dwight torture them.
- "I knew it. Her breasts were a tiny bit bigger. At first I thought, Oh, she has a new bra with padding. But then I thought, Pam doesn't need padding."—Kevin
How creepy is Kevin? So yes, Pam and Jim announce to the office that they're expecting a baby. (I can't wait for baby Beesly-Halpert!) Everyone coos and acts excited until the often-inappropriate Kevin delivers this line.
- "It was an interoffice messaging system. It worked quite well for a while, but ultimately, it couldn't compete with computer IMing, which apparently, has a stranglehold on a whole instant messaging market."—Dwight
Dwight continues to abuse the interns by making them pass notes for him to different people in the office. Is it wrong that I secretly want to try this at Sugar?
For more funny lines, and highlight moments,
"Look to the intern on your left; now to your right. One of you will do exceedingly well in business, just unlimited potential. One of you will make a living and nothing more. And one of you will make a great mother."—Dwight
Dwight definitely has the best lines of the night, and when he delivers this good-bye speech to the Summer interns — two guys and only one girl — I nearly snorted.
Did I leave any out? I also loved Andy's "If I was gay" speech about Brad Pitt. Poor guy is so confused! I can't wait until next week's episode, but until then, please share your favorite episode moments below.
