Check out these funny quotes from "The Office" if you're looking for a laugh to cheer yourself up. Not your office, the one on TV. The show follows the antics of Dwight, Michael, Pam, Jim, Phyllis, Liz and Angela as they go through their day trying to manage sales for a paper company in Scranton, Ohio The office would run perfectly if it weren't for character flaws and interpersonal conflicts that lead to misunderstanding, disagreement, and the whims of human nature, and it is from these character flaws that are the root of the humor in the show.

Dwight: Arguably the biggest dork the hottest head in "The Office". After Michael Scott leaves his management position, Dwight says to the camera, "Do you see my hat? 'No,' That's because I just threw it in the ring." This was after he overheared two of the worst candidates for management bantering about how beaten and downtrodden everyone seems in the office.

Michael Scott: Not really understanding the context of his words, Michael proudly announced: "It is true. I, Michael Scott, am signing up with an online dating service. Thousands of people have done it, and I am going to do it. I need a username, and… I have a great one. 'Little Kid Lover.' That way people will know exactly where my priorities are at." With a name like that, NBCand MSNBC could run an extended episode of "The Office" on "To Catch a Predator".


Jim: A beautiful quote that can be applied to almost every situation, Jim Halpert said: "God, this is so sad, this is the smallest amount of power I've ever seen go to someone's head." Just make sure not to say it more than once per day.

Michael: Like a play within a play, lines and reality are reversed when Michael said: "I guess the atmosphere that I've tried to create here is that I'm a friend first and a boss second, and probably an entertainer third." Hamlet would be proud.

Michael: Trying to stop a blow-up in the office during diversity day, Michael said: "You'll notice, I didn't have anybody being Arab. I thought that would be too explosive, uh, no pun intended. But I just thought, 'too soon' for Arabs, maybe next year. You know, the ball's in their court." When it comes to safety, there's nothing like walking on thin ice.
