Last night's "Scott's Tots" was not one of The Office's best.
In fact, rather than delighting in Michael Scott's personal and professional bungling, it was actually a little depressing. Promising kids college tuition, then yanking it away?
That's pretty low, even for the Dunder-Mifflin regional manager.
If there was a silver lining to be found, it would be sweet, wonderful Erin, whose attempts to pick Michael up after his latest debacle were heartwarming. She's also cute.
Meanwhile, Dwight is out to sabotage Jim, who seems blissfully unaware (or fakes it really well). He's even got a diabolical plan (titled as such), and Ryan wants in.
We've posted some of The Office quotes from last night below. Follow the link for our entire library of quotes from every episode and all six seasons of the comedy ...
This guy has done something bad. Something really bad. Even by his standards!
Dwight: Heyy! Jimmy, what's up?
Jim: Not much.
Dwight: Cool! Very cool. I bet if you tried, you could grow the best beard of anyone in this office!
Jim: Thanks Dwight.
Dwight: That laugh is so infectious!
Michael: Creepin' me out. I'm gonna go.
Dwight: I didn't mean any of those things I just said. | permalink
Ryan: Okay. So, um. Listen. I know about your diabolical plan.
Dwight: What?! "Diabolical plan?" I wouldn't even know how to begin-
Ryan: [holds up My Diabolical Plan by Dwight K. Schrute] I found a copy of it in the copier tray.
Dwight: So what do you want.
Ryan: I want the same thing you want. I want to take Jim Halpert down. I want in. | permalink
Creed: Guys, I'm starting to think Pam's not even pregnant. | permalink
Michael: How about this. If you can find a way to pay for your tuition, let me buy your books. Ok?
Student: They're expensive.
Michael: Yeah, well. I owe you that, at least, right?
Student: It's about a thousand dollars.
Michael: Really. Wow. That's... over two hundred dollars a year.
Student: No. A thousand each year. | permalink
Andy: Employee of the month. Every awesome place I've worked at had one ... Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, AIG... my summer at Enron. | permalink
Michael: Now, I can't pay for your college. But you don't have to go to class, to be in class. Online classes are a viable option to a traditional college experience. And the best way to access those courses is with your own personal laptop. Which is rendered useless, without batteries! And I have one for each of you. Hold on! Hold on! Hold on! Hold on. They're lithium! | permalink
