I watched the final season of The Office the last week. I think this show is so hilarious and yet filled with serious moments that made me cry. The last episode, which aired May 2013 still makes me laugh out loud and alternatively weep.
Here are the great quotes from The Office:
Jim played one final prank on Dwight, telling him he had to step down as his best man. That’s when Michael stepped in.
“I can’t believe you came,” said Dwight.
“That’s what she said,” said Michael.
“Do you find that your life feels pointless now that nobody’s actually filming you anymore?”
Michael: “I feel like all my kids grew up and then they married each other. It’s every parent’s dream.”
Pam: “It’d be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I’m a tragic person. I’m really happy now. But…it would just…just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself ‘be strong, trust yourself, love yourself. Conquer your fears. Just go after what you want and act fast, because life just isn’t that long.’”
Andy: “I spent so much of my time here at Dunder Mifflin thinking about my old pals, my college a cappella group. The weird thing is now, I’m exactly where I wanna be. I got my dream job at Cornell and I’m still just thinking about my old pals. Only now they’re the ones I made here. I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them. Someone should write a song about that.”
Kevin: If there is one thing that I have learned through this whole experience, it’s that if you film anybody long enough, they’re going to do something stupid. It’s only human natural.
Jim: Hey, and if you’re ever in Austin…
Dwight: Woah. Right. For what, the art? The music? The incredible nightlife? No thank you. But if you’re ever in the area, you’ll always have a place to stay…in my barn.
Jim: I sold paper at this company for 12 years. My job was to speak to clients on the phone about quantities and types of copier paper. Even if I didn’t love every minute of it, everything I have, I owe to this job. This stupid…wonderful…boring…amazing job.
Pam: I thought it was weird when you picked us to make a documentary. But all in all…I think an ordinary paper company like Dunder Mifflin was a great subject for a documentary. There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?
