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."

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
