Phyllis is a quiet but friendly Dunder Mifflin sales rep. She is played by Phyllis Smith and is friends with most people at work. Phyllis' maiden name was Lapin before she married Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration.

She has a motherly way about her (with the exception of toward Angela), and went to high school with her boss Michael Scott, who makes inappropriate comments to her with startling frequency. But he does that to everyone.

Meredith: Do you wanna make appletinis and watch Sex and the City at my place?
Pam: Oh, I don't know. I haven't decided. Yet.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
