Recap, Quotes, and Video From The Office Episode "Scott's Tots"

The Office, "Scott's Tots": Best Lines of the Night and Video!

Hmm, it just me or was this week's The Office just not as funny as we've come to expect? Michael visits a school for "Scott's Tots," a program that he started ten years earlier to send kids to college. The problem is that he can't afford to keep good on his promise. Sounds like a funny premise, but I just found the whole thing kind of sad. Thank goodness for Dwight who provides the laughs in this episode while trying to sabotage Jim, of course. The best part is when he calls David Wallace pretending to be Stanley, Kevin, and Toby. He had me in stitches!

Ready to recap some of the best zingers, as well as a few highlights from the evening? Let's get started.

  • Andy: "Well if we're complaining, a lot of people think your Elvis voice is annoying."
    Michael: "Okay, who said that?"
    Andy: "Just people. For the record, I think it's pretty fantastic."
    Michael: "Well, thank you, thank you a lot. And for what it's worth, I think your baby voice is tops."
    Andy: "Thank you, Mr. Elvis."
    Michael: "You're welcome, baby."

    Sometimes the one-off opening of the show is my favorite part of the night. (Remember the amazing parkour intro in this season's premiere?) I especially appreciated this one, since someone finally calls Andy out for his baby voices. Seeing him talk with his wubby-bubby voice to Michael's curled-lip Elvis is pretty hilarious.

For more funny quotes, plus a video of Dwight's Oscar-worthy co-worker impressions,


  • Erin: "There's about 30 news alerts for Nip Slip."
    Michael: "For what?!"
    Erin: "Nip. Slip."
    Michael: "Oh, I don't know how those get on there. Must be hackers."

    Michael is having a hard time warming up to Erin, even though she's doing her best — even helping him clean out his emails, which are unsurprisingly pervy. But towards the end of the episode, they're alone in the car together, and Michael actually has a heart-to-heart with Erin to tell her that she's doing a good job. A sincere and serious Michael? That's not something we see all the time.

  • In an ideal world, I'd have all ten fingers on my left hand, so my right hand could just be a fist for punching."—Dwight

    Oh Dwight, always so ruthless. He's easily the highlight of this episode for me, and I loved watching him manipulate the entire Dunder Mifflin office to take Jim down. You can watch his plan play out in this video. (Can you believe how perfectly he captures Stanley and Kevin's voices? The man is amazing.)

  • "Now, I can't pay for your college, but you don't have to go to class to be in class. Online courses are a viable option to a traditional college experience. And the best way to access those courses is with your own personal laptop — which is rendered useless without batteries, and I have one for each of you. Hold on, hold on, hold on, they're lithium!"—Michael

    The whole episode I was wondering how Michael could possibly smooth over his mistake with the students' tuition, but batteries seem like an appropriately cheap Michael Scott gesture. Thing is, you can't really hate the guy for his faux pas, because he genuinely did want to finance their schooling. I'm not sure how I feel about this side of Michael. I'm actually hoping he returns to his regular outrageous (and totally selfish) self next week — it's more fun to watch!

i liked this episode but i agree that this season has not been subpar to others. and i totally agree nina_e, i miss the rest of the ensemble. thats what really made the whole show hilarious!

I thought this episode was hilarious, but I'm easily amused. I love how Dwight tried to thwart Jim and the ending when Ryan wants in. I also loved when someone shouted out during all the chaos 'I bet Pam's not even pregnant!"

I'm a big office fan...but this season hasn't been the best, I can't put my finger on what it is. Jim and Pam are getting on my nerves. There isn't enough of the other characters. More Kelly, more Kevin, Oscar and Creed. It's seems like they messed with the perfect formula they had previously.

This episode was pretty much a downer. Micheal braking promises to those kids, and Jim having even less respect than Michael at the office... just sad. I hope things pick up. More Andy would be a good thing.

This episode was a bit painful to watch. The Scot's Tots was just sad to me. The funniest part was Dwight doing the impressions. And for some reason, I really liked that David Wallace called up Jim to tell him he was doing a good job and knew he was trying hard. Maybe the show should stop trying so hard. The whole "Dwight's plan to bring down Jim" is gonna get really old really fast.

I have to agree that this season has not been that great. The only great episode so far to me has been 'Murder.' And I've been finding that week after week , I enjoy watching Modern Family and Parks & Recreation more than The Office.

It just wasn't the same after the writers' strike and then with the whole wedding/baby/Jim being the manager, it has been even more downhill.

I didn't like the "Scott's Tots" part of the episode so much, but I love Dwight's impressions and the end with Michael and Erin. I like Erin and I'd like to see them do more with her character. I don't know how many more seasons are being planned. As much as I love the show, I would like to see it go out with a bang, not a whimper.

I've been really bored with this show this season. I just don't think it's funny anymore. It's the same recycled jokes over and over again.

They've just run out of ideas. They should make this season the last.

I HATED this episode. I watched half of it on mute because it was so awkward and not funny at all. (except for Dwight's impressions)

this episode SUCKED. i hate this whole "dwight wants to get jim fired" storyline. it's not very funny and is totally obnoxious. i know it's supposed to be obnoxious bc it's dwight, but it's almost unbearable to watch :(

I too loved the Dwight 10 fingers on one hand quote. Who knows what is going to happen next with Ryan and Dwight teaming together against Jim. I miss Jim being the likable character :( I agree about this sounding funny but sort of not being funny... but I did love the song!

I agree with Whip that this show is going downhill. I don't find myself breaking my neck trying to watch it anymore. That said, Dwight's impressions were the best part and I forgot about the fist comment....hilarious!
