The Best Quotes From Michael Scott

Michael Scott from The Office has brought laughter to the show's audience countless times.

The Best Quotes From Michael Scott
NBC Universal

If you don't know what "The Office" is or who Michael Scott is, you probably have a dry sense of humor. In the Hit TV series first aired on NBC, Michael Scott is the manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, PA. I will admit his jokes were very cringe-worthy and annoying in the first season, but if you kept watching you'd know he was actually hilarious and very relatable.

His character had no filter and was quite dumb in certain situations, just like how we all can be at times. It has been said if you get offended easily Michael Scott is not a character you would like or see as humorous. Also, if you love "The Office" as I do, you know that after Michael leaves the show in its seventh season it's a complete flop. They could never find someone to replace his unique character and humor. They even brought Will Ferrel in for a short amount of time and even though he is funny, it just wasn't the same.

So, although his character was hard to get used to in the beginning, by the end the fans never wanted to see him leave.

Here are just six of my favorite quotes from this very extraordinary character.

Season 5, Episode 13

"I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense I had no idea what to do"

We all feel a little lost sometimes. As a high school senior right now I am in a pretty good position because I know what I am going to school for and what I majoring in. But I know that isn't the same for all my friends. Some have no idea what they're going to do come spring when we graduate. Honestly, it's okay to be lost because it's normal to not have everything planned out.

Season 5, Episode 23

""You miss 100% of the shot you don't take. -Wayne Gretzky" -Michael Scott"

Michael Scott quoting Wayne Gretzky then quoting himself after is iconic.

Season 4, Episode 4

"I am running away from my responsibilities. And it feels good."

Avoiding responsibilities is a great talent of mine. Sometimes life gets rough and it's just easier to walk away from my problems than to actually deal with them. I know everybody has felt the same way before.

Season 1, Episode 2

"Am I a hero? I really can't say, but yes."

Okay, maybe one thing he said in season one had some humor to it. In season one Michael's character just seemed like he was trying too hard to be funny and when people do that, they aren't funny.

Season 4, Episode 1

"I have flaws. What are they? I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car."

Everybody has flaws! May not be the same as Michael's because he ran Meredith over, but we all still have them.

Season 3, Episode 16

"Good managers don't fire. They hire and inspire."

Michael Scott was nothing but ironic. Considering he doesn't fire, he never hired (When new people came it's because cooperate hired them), and he definitely never inspired the office workers. Although he was the manager, their boss, he was never taken seriously.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
