Best Lines From The Office Season 6, Episode 3 "The Promotion"

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

Once Jim is promoted to co-manager of the The Office, we all know some wacky banter with Michael isn't far behind. On this week's episode, the Dunder Mifflinites are adjusting to the new hierarchy while Jim and Michael have their first squabble about how to run things. Meanwhile, Pam is still planning for that big Niagara Falls wedding next week — check out a sneak peek of the JAM nuptials here.

As usual, I've put together some of my favorite jabs and one-liners of the night, but if you want to discuss The Office all week long, head on over to Jenna V's community group dedicated to the show. For my thoughts, just


  • "You know what eats a large amount of the day are naps. You go to sleep, it's lights out, you wake up its dark. That's the whole day. Where did that day go? I have no idea." — Michael
    "You mean on a weekend?" — Jim
    "Yes." — Michael

    Within about five minutes of having to make their first major decision again, Jim is already having problem staying professional with Michael. Nothing has changed between them and Jim still calls Michael out on his unprofessional antics, like unnecessary meetings.
  • "Can I also be a boss?" — Stanley
    Stanley's observation about Jim and Michael's disorganization made me chuckle, because he hits the nail right on the head. The more Jim and Michael squabble, the more it seems like a couple of kids pretending to run an office. I also loved Oscar's followup where he describes the "necessity" of two monarchs, two ship captains, etc.
  • "I love rivalries. Michael or Jim? Paris or Nicole? Heidi or LC? It's so much fun. But, I guess if I'm really thinking about it and answering your question honestly, I'd have to go with LC. Heidi's a bad friend. And her skin is terrible." — Kelly
    We can always count on Kelly to bring celebrities into everything. I also loved when she alluded to needing a raise to help fix Ryan's car.
  • "Why doesn't Crate and Barrel let you register for a toaster full of cash?" — Pam
    While Jim and Michael are trying to figure out how to deal with the raise situation, Pam has her own money problems. She just wants cash for her wedding, but feels awkward asking for it, which means she can expect a romantic birdhouse from Phyllis once the big day arrives!

So what did you think of this week's episode? Does anyone else think there's not nearly enough Andy this week? And how sweet is Michael's gift to Jim?

I agree, too much Jim in this episode. Why not just split the money up evenly? Is that too duh?

I apologize in advance if I get the quote a little wrong. Dwight: I have a huge, enormous, gigantic complaint about the tallest guy in the office. Michael contemplates. Dwight: Jim won't sign my expense report. Michael: Ah! That's Jim's job, you're trying to trick me!

Jim announcing to the entire office that only sales would get raises was foolish, and worse, out of character. This episode was only "meh," in my opinion, although I got a kick out of the final scene with Jim and Michael drinking gin in Jim's office.

I'm excited for next week because it will be shamelessly cute, but mostly I just want them to send Jam on a honeymoon and set them aside for a week or two. The teeny tiny glimpses of the rest of the cast that we're allowed anymore, in between OMG WEDDING AND BABIES SQUEEE!!! makes me miss them that much more. Oscar had me rolling, especially about "where would Catholicism be without the Popes" and asking Kelly if knowing Jim thought she was smart made her feel any better. Also, Jim's a moron for thinking his first major move could be showing favoritism for the department Pam works in, essentially putting more money in their own pockets, and people wouldn't hate him for it. I kinda find the whole Jim and Pam money thing obnoxious given the current state. I don't feel bad for them, getting promotions and needing extra dough for their Niagra Falls wedding. Basically, I've got a nasty Jam hangover and I want more of everyone else, including Michael.
