The Office Recap Season Finale "Search Committee"

The Office, "Search Committee": Best Lines of the Night

Dunder Mifflin is closed for the Summer, so to speak — The Office has its season finale this week, with Jim, Toby, and Gabe on the hunt for a new manager. They're tasked with interviewing candidates for the open position (including the woman who may be coming in permanently, Catherine Tate), while Creed sits in as acting manager, instituting his specific brand of crazy. As the promos promised, there is a host of familiar faces up for the job, like Ray Romano, James Spader, Will Arnett, and Jim Carrey, and they each have pretty good bits.

The conference room is hardly the only place for laughs though; when Angela gets engaged and Erin tries to get Andy's attention, everyone seems to have at least one funny moment. So as we say goodbye to another season of The Office, let's go over some of the best lines from the finale when you


  • Phyllis: "It was a big year for babies. Porky's had come out."
    Erin: "I'm sure I was just another Porky's baby. But why not find out." — Phyllis and Erin wait to find out if Erin is the baby Phyllis gave up for adoption years ago
  • "Shut up about the sun. Shut up about the sun!" — Gabe, yelling at Andy for spouting off so many facts in his interview
  • Dwight: "What's your daughter's name again? Pee Pee?"
    Jim: "Peepa."
    Dwight: "Peepa. That's great." — Dwight tries to make small talk with Jim so he'll be considered for the manger job
  • "Angela went a whole day without telling me I had lettuce in my teeth. Screw her." — Phyllis, voting against telling Angela that her fiancé is gay
  • "Don't you just love paper and things about paper?" — Pam, pretending to be a Dunder Mifflin client so Creed can't drive away any real clients

What did you think of the finale? And even though it seems like Tate is going to end up with the job, which of the applicants did you like the most?

Catherine Tate was my least favorite candidate for the Job. I'm really rooting for Jim Carey. He was only on for a few seconds but I think he did a great job. Overall, I loved the episode, it had me laughing every other minute.

I noticed that stephley — he looked much thinner than usual.

Did anyone else think Toby didn't look at all well?

How do I know he's gay? He liked my Facebook photos at 3 a.m.

The best was Oscar on Angela marrying a gay man: As a gay man, I'm horrified. As a friend of Angela, I'm horrified. As a lover of elegant wedding, I'm a little excited! But overall: horrified.

James Spader would be the best choice out of the people last night. I agree that Tate wasn't all that funny last night. I also agree that the whole Andy/Erin dance is getting old. The writers either need to get them together or have them move on.

This episode was fantastic!!! I laughed consistently throughout the entire thing. I wish they'd just put Andy/Erin together already, they're cute, but tedious. Also wish Dwight had had some reaction, any reaction, to Angela's engagement.

I think they should stay leaderless for a while, let the inmates run the asylum. If Tate is the choice, I hope they eventually write something funny for her - she & Carrey were the least amusing bits.

I love James Spader. He would be fantastic!
