Who Said It? David Brent vs. Michael Scott

In honor of this Labor Day holiday, I'm challenging you guys to a quiz featuring the bumbling paper company managers of "The Office" — both the U.K. version featuring Ricky Gervais and the American version with Steve Carell. Let's see how well you've been paying attention when you've spent your off hours with these office mates.

For each question, I'll present you with a quote, and you'll decide whether it was David Brent (Gervais) who said it, or good ol' Michael Scott (Carell). So, do you think you have the smarts to be an assistant to the regional manager, or might you be called an "ignorant slut"? Let's find out...

Who Said It? David Brent vs. Michael Scott

"People see me, and they see the suit, and they go, 'You're not fooling anyone.' They know I'm rock and roll through and through."

10/10!!!! yay! and for those of you who refuse to watch the american version, i've watched both and they're like apples and oranges. i love both but to be honest, the only thing they really have in common is the setting. and if you're planning on trying to watch the american version, skip the first season and go straight to the second. it's all gold!

You know, I passed on the American version for a long time... (Because I was very fearful after trying to watch the American "Coupling.") But I am glad I finally gave in!

yay 100%!!! i was a big hater of the American version...wouldn't watch it if you paid me. but last season i finally came around & realized that they were both good in their own way. (but the UK version will always be best!)

mabess I totally sympathize but I finally tried it and it took me a few episodes before I would let myself laugh even and now I love it just as much as the UK version, they're so different, you absolutely must watch the American version. ;)

OOOOhh I loved it, I thought I had them all right but I didn't. I still think David Brent makes the most geniusly awkward boss ever but Michael Scott is more endearing.

I've never watched the US version -- I love the UK one so much I just can't imagine the American one being better.

I've never seen the UK version (it's still on my Netflix queue), but I got a 9/10 just by recognizing the Michael Scott quotes! Woot!

:woohoo: 8/10. :howyoudoin: I love both the shows! They're both very different and totally reflect their own country's humor I think.

The British version is sooo good (and completely cringeworthy)

The British and the American versions are just different. I have seen every episode of both versions, and I like them both a lot, but you can't compare them- they are different shows based on a different humor and a different culture. Anyways, that was fun!
