A FUNNY QUOTE FROM "THE OFFICE"

I love "The Office"....LOVE IT! It just kills me....even the uncomfortable moments...I love the characters, the writing, the acting, the whole she'bang. So I thought I would share a bit of dialogue from the show...it's about Michael (the boss) who is considering quitting and finding a new job. He has such an inflated image of his importance to the company (which I suppose is a protective factor for his ego, but is so NOT realistic)...anyway, I thought it was funny....

This conversation takes place between Pam (the receptionist), Michael, and Jim (a salesperson, who is dead-on funny) and my personal favorite, Dwight Schrute, an Amish-y beet farmer who is also a sales person (and a very good one, hence they don't get rid of him. Enjoy!

Pam Beesly: Do you have any leads on a job?

Michael Scott: Pam what you don't understand is at my level, you don't just look in the want ads for a job, you are headhunted!

Jim Halpert: Have you called any headhunters?

Michael Scott: Any good headhunter knows that I am available.

Dwight Schrute: Any really good headhunter will storm your village at sunset with overwhelming force and cut off your head with a ceremonial knife.

Jim Halpert: Right, because that's what we're talking about.

I loved that part!

The Office is terrific. Thanks to Meg for getting me started on it!

Yep! Meg has great taste and you do too...Peter still has a difficult time watching it...he just doesn't get it...he still says things like, "Why does that boss keep looking into the camera?" yea...he does.....

i've never watched it, but if this little snippet is any indication, i think i should. too funny!

You should check it out. You could try watching it on hulu.com. just give it a shot. it's very dry...very sarcastic...and oh, how I wish I could be with you when you were watching it....

we never miss an episode! i loved this part too. but totally crazy how pam decided to follow michael... what's that about?

The Katzbox said...

Jess, I think Pam went with Michael because 1.) she's spontaneous 2.) she wants higher aspirations and this was her chance to become a salesperson vs a receptionist and 3.) it will add intrigue to the remainder of the cast as Kevin and Stanely prove how inept the new boss is, which will probably end up bringing back Michael and Pam...that's just my theory....

so happy to see you here...btw!!!
