Recap and the Best Quotes From The Office Episode "Manager and Salesman"

The Office, "Manager and Salesman": Best Lines of the Night!

Happy Valentine's Day from The Office! And what a sweet holiday treat it is. This week's episode not only delivers oodles of quips, but I also got two of my dream gifts: the return of Jim to the sales team and more Kelly Kapoor.

Ever since Jim took on his managerial position, he's kind of been a stick in the mud, but from the looks of it, he may be returning to his old, adorable prankster self. As for Kelly, she also got decent camera time, thanks to guy-related drama (what else is new?).

To sum up, the evening made me smile — which hasn't exactly been a regular occurrence as of late. So without further ado, let's dive into some of the best quotes.

  • Andy: "These sure are pretty dogs."
    Jo: "They love a good crotch."
    Andy: "Yeah, they sure do."
    Jo: "You should take that as a compliment."

    When Jolene (Kathy Bates), the CEO of Sabre, arrives at the Scranton branch with her two giant dogs, they can't seem to get enough of Andy's, er, nether regions. Okay, the joke is pretty basic (and a little juvenile), but I was practically dying during the sequence of scenes with them coming on to Andy at his desk, at the printer, and everywhere else.

For more amusing lines just


  • Erin: "Aww, a bird and a dog."
    Andy: "Yeah, well it's Snoopy and Woodstock."
    Erin: "You named them?"
    Andy: "Charles Schulz did."

    Wow, Andy just can't win in this episode, can he? He wants to give Erin a valentine, so he buys them for the entire office so it doesn't look like he's coming on too strong. And then she doesn't even understand his card! Erin really went up a few notches for me this week. She's still technically the new girl on the block, but she's really proving herself to be a major player.

  • "I have been saying the word 'manager' a lot, so whenever Jo thinks 'manager', she thinks of me. Camel cigarettes did the same thing with Joe Camel by making him look like a penis. I can't even go near a cigarette now without thinking of a penis. And vice versa." — Michael

    Say what?! Michael's interplay with Jim as they try to outdo each other for the manager position (and then the sales position) is pretty entertaining. I'm happy with how things turn out though, aren't you? Watching Michael squirm in the middle of the sales pod (poor Phyllis and her allergy meds!) is fun to witness, but by the end things are back to how they should be -- Michael as Manager, Jim in Sales. When Jim sticks Dwight's tie in his coffee, I had to smile to myself. Old Jim is back -- I hope.

  • "I guess Andy likes me. I never thought of him that way. But I guess in most romantic comedies, the guy you're supposed to be with is the one you never thought of in that way. You might have even thought he was annoying or possibly homosexual." — Kelly

    Kelly Kapoor! Kelly gets confused when Andy gives her an overly gushing Valentine's card, and thinks he now has a crush on her. Which, of course, she immediately brags about to Erin and everyone else. I love seeing Kelly in action -- and we usually don't get enough of it. Honorable mention goes to Meredith for this line: "Believe me, if I got that card? We'd be doing in the bathroom right now."

  • Dwight: "The new IT guy, Nick. I think he's the key; he's very trusting, he's looking for friends, he's been given an awesome amount of power and does not know how to wield it..."
    Ryan: "Like Frodo."
    Dwight: "Why don't you just let me handle the Tolkein references? Okay, dumb jock?"
    Ryan: "Well, I think he can be corrupted. Like Gollum."
    Dwight: "Smigel was corrupted and became Gollum."

    I don't know that I'd normally put Ryan and Dwight together, but joined by a common goal -- taking down Jim -- they actually serve as a hilarious duo. I love when Dwight likens the movie Saw to going on a seesaw. Please writers, give us more dumpster meetings between Bobcat and Dragon!

So did the Dunder Mifflin — make that Sabre — gang charm you this week, as much as they did me? Tell me in the comments, or head on over to The Office! group in the BuzzSugar Community to talk some more.

I think that the whole point of Pam's wardrobe is that she's kind of frumpy. Remember how she dressed for the first three seasons?

Whiplash: I think he bought Erin's card specially for her, and then just bought everyone else one at random. More Kelly and Erin time ! Kelly is great... her character is so ditzy it's hard to believe she's one of the writers (although I suppose that's why they call it acting ;)). Pam has become so freaking boring. And really, can we do a little better w her maternity wardrobe ??

I thought that the whole thing was that Andy accidentally mixed up Erin and Kelly's cards? Maybe I got it wrong though. I was also cracking up when Erin said "Of course he likes Kelly. She gets all her clothes at the MALL." This was a really good episode. I'm so happy that it looks like Jim is back!

LOL great episode! Andy and the dogs just killed me. Oh gosh and Kelly Kapoor, love her. I'm glad Jim is back on sales, Michael would have gotten more annoying than usual if he was not manager. Oh and the relationship between Dwight and Ryan, Bobcat and Dragon <3 I love this show :)
