20 Creed Bratton Quotes From 'The Office' That Have Aged Like Fine Mung Beans

Almost everyone I know has seen at least one episode of "The Office." Of course, those who are not super fans usually say Michael Scott or Dwight Schrute or Jim Halpert is their favorite character. But, if you're like me, and you've watched the show so many times you can quote every episode (no, really. This isn't an exaggeration), you begin to appreciate some of the lesser characters. After my 25th run through of the seasons, I found that I had a new appreciation for Creed Bratton, head of quality assurance, and the strangest man in the office.

In fact, if you are struggling to watch the seasons again, just keep an eye on Creed throughout the episodes. In each episode, he finds a way to use his failing knowledge of "normal" human interactions to keep "The Office" fun and interesting.

Don't believe me? Here are 20 Creed Bratton quotes that prove he really might be the best character in "The Office."

"I'm 30. Well, in November I'll be 30."

NBC Universal

“I wanna do a cartwheel. But real casual like. Not enough to make a big deal out of it, but I know everyone saw it. One stunning, gorgeous cartwheel.”

"Oh you're paying way too much for worms. Who's your worm guy?"

NBC Universal

“I’ve been involved in a number of cults, both a leader and a follower. You have more fun as a follower, but you make more money as a leader."

"Just pretend like we're talking until the cops leave."

NBC Universal

“If I can’t scuba, then what’s this all been about? What am I working toward?”

Creed Bratton has never declared bankruptcy. When Creed Bratton gets in trouble, he transfers his debt to William Charles Scheider."

NBC Universal

“I already won the lottery. I was born in the US of A baby. And as backup I have a Swiss passport.”

“Let’s put a smile on that face.”

NBC Universal

“Nobody steals from Creed Bratton and gets away with it. The last person to do this disappeared. His name? Creed Bratton.”

"When Pam gets Michael’s old chair, I get Pam’s old chair. Then I’ll have two chairs. Only one to go.”

NBC Universal

“The Taliban in the worst. Great heroin though.”

“You know a human can go on living for several hours after being decapitated.”

NBC Universal

“You ever seen a foot with four toes?”

“I run a small fake-ID company from my car with a laminating machine that I swiped from the Sheriff’s station.”

NBC Universal

"If my parents see this, I'm toast."

“Hey brah. I been meaning to ask you. Can we get some Red Bull for these things? Sometimes your guy’s gotta ride the bull. Later skater.”

NBC Universal

“You ever notice you can only ooze two things? Sexuality and puss. Man, I tell ya."

“It’s Halloween. That is really, really good timing.”

NBC Universal

"I stopped caring a long time ago."

If this doesn't convince you that Creed is amazing, I don't know what will. Between his struggle to remember what his job is and his inability to have normal social interactions, Creed provides such a dark, humorous dynamic to "The Office."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
