More Favorite Moments From The Office

May 16th 2013 is the day we all say goodbye to our friends at The Office, but we never have to say goodbye to the memories. After hitting my favorite episodes of the nine-year running sitcom, my brain started drilling up other moments of awkward brilliance I couldn't pass up. There's no doubt there are plenty more that could have been picked, and they'll never be forgotten either. Here are some more of my favorite moments. What are some of your favorite scenes, characters, or relationships in The Office? I'd love to hear your thoughts below!

Favorite opening: Stress Relief

The Office had a lot of great subtle openings with Michael waxing poetic about his life or Jim working a prank on Dwight. One of the many great openings is this hilarious fire drill started by Dwight in Stress Relief. Schrute turns the tables on the entire office who don't think his security and safety measures are worth the time. No, nobody stays calm like they should.

Favorite Anti-Toby moment: Frame Toby

Who doesn't think of this scene in times of inner crises? After Michael's girlfriend Holly is (wrongfully) transferred to another branch because of their romance, Toby returns after his horrible get-away trip to Puerto Rico. The change in Human Resources and the return of an evil snail prompts one of the best PLEASE DEAR GOD NO NO NO moments ever.

Favorite Conference Room Meeting: The Convict

When the Scranton Branch absorbs employees from the Connecticut branch, a leak is made that one of the new employees was previously incarcerated. As the office becomes excited and interested by the ex-convict's time in the klink, Prison Mike makes an appearance in the conference room to tell them how serious jail is.

 Darryl taught Michael how to be Hood. Splickety Splack.

Underrated Character & Actor:Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner)

Kevin Malone wasn't exactly a bright man or one to capture ladies' hearts. On the show, his excessive appetite, sexual creepy lust and slow ability to catch on were spotlighted the most in storylines. Often though I looked at Kevin and was amazed by the talent of Brian to really inhabit all of Kevin's bumbling qualities and make them come to life. A true actor is one who can take a character that lacks common sense and only has eyes for carnal desires and make him feel truly realistic.

Michael & Dwight's friendship

They had us at "Dwight, you ignorant slut" or maybe even before. One of the most treasured friendships on the show, Michael and Dwight were all kinds of wrong and right. Constantly overshadowing each other their personalities pretty much blended into one. I couldn't even begin to think of a favorite moment shared between the two because they had so many. I wish I had a four hour montage of all of their moments because Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson were truly exceptional. It's a crime they both rarely won for their performances.

Classic Creed.


"When you're a kid you assume your parents are soulmates. My kids are going to be right about that. I guess it also means that sometimes love affairs look different to the people inside them."

Jim and Pam's will-they-or-won't-they friendship at the beginning of series was one of the big hooks for fans to watch. Many say that the show lost its edge when they finally hooked up, but I always found - no matter how frustrating or boring the episodes were written - their relationship had plenty of realistic ups and downs. In this final season their marriage was really tested with ideas/possibilities of an affair, long distance traveling, and couples therapy. It'll be great one day to look back at the huge arc their relationship had.

 Favorite Blooper Series: Season 4

Whenever I need something boost my day, there's no doubt that I'll watch the show. But, there are so rarely good sitcoms that have really great bloopers. I love watching the outtakes because I genuinely feel I'm having as much fun as their goof-ups as they are. The same moments never fail to make me laugh, even if I've seen them a hundred times. It was definitely rough to pick one season so I have second places: 2, 3, 7

This post was really hard. I hope it left you satisfied and smiling.That's what she said!
