OK, I've discreetly wiped the tears from my eyes post-wedding and have to report that I was pleasantly surprised — after all the hype, The Office managed to pull off unconventional and totally touching nuptials for Jim and Pam.
The video sneak peek didn't give away the wedding surprises — or the moments of hilariousness that arose. I've put together my favorite lines of the episode here, so check them out — and for another Office water cooler, join The Office group in the community!
To see the best lines of this week, just
- "A three ounce fetus is calling the shots! That's so badass." — Dwight
Dwight is entranced by Pam's pregnancy, but he and the rest of the office are not exactly sympathetic. That is, until Dwight's peeled egg makes Pam barf, then Andy barf, then a full-on chain reaction barf ensues, reminiscent of the notorious scene in Stand By Me.
- "Some of us have to be our own grandmother." — Angela
Angela's uptightness kills me in this episode — from her being offended by Pam's pregnancy to honking incessantly at Kevin in the office parking lot. Hilarious.
- "A lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl I worked with, but I think even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife." — Jim
Obviously this line isn't funny, but it was possibly my favorite one in the whole episode. It's such a sweet, genuinely Jim thing for him to say at the rehearsal dinner and is one of those moments at any crazy wedding where you remember why you're there. Oh and it's the line that's uttered right before Jim accidentally slips that Pam is pregnant and everything comes crashing down.
- "I was dancing and I did a split and I landed on my car keys in my pocket." — Andy
Andy's accident actually sets off many hilarious lines, such as "He is in my room icing his balls," Jim's "No! Let's talk for a long time," and "Andy, did I dream that you were crying through the night?"
- "What else you got?!" — Erin
Meek receptionist Erin rarely gets a funny line, but her screaming at Andy to show off another dance move after he was so obviously injured is so funny and timed perfectly.
- "I bought those boat tickets the day I saw that YouTube video." — Jim
Pretty sure my jaw dropped when "Forever" from the JK Wedding Entrance dance came on. It's just the kind of cheesy disaster that would befall Jim and Pam, but they've already secretly gotten married, so instead of horror, it's joy on their faces watching their co-workers and family groove down the aisle. The fact that they cut in footage from the ceremony at sea? Perfect.
Need to see that wedding dance again? Say no more!
