14 Stanley Hudson Quotes That Prove He Might Be The Best Character On 'The Office'

His dry sense of humor, his relatable personality, and his love for food are just some ways to know you're like Stanley.

The show "The Office" has many memorable characters, but one that gets overlooked very often is Stanley. When I first started watching "The Office" some of my first picks of characters I liked were Jim, Dwight, and Creed. One unlikely character I really liked was Stanley. His dry sense of humor, his relatable personality, and his love for food, especially if it’s free. The way Stanley acts just show some signs that he is just like everyone else. Here are the fourteen signs you are Stanley from "The Office."

1. “Yes, I have a dream, and it's not some MLK dream for equality. I want to own a decommissioned lighthouse. And I want to live at the top. And nobody knows I live there. And there's a button that I can press, and launch that lighthouse into space.”

Stanley just wants to be alone like the rest of us.

2. “Life is short. Drive fast and leave a sexy corpse. That’s one of my mottos.”

This was the time Stanley gave this wonderful life advice.

3. "I have been trying to get on jury duty every year since I was 18 years old. To get to go sit it in an air-conditioned room, downtown, judging people, while my lunch is paid for ... that is the life."

Be honest... we all judge, why not get some free lunch out of it?

4. "Newsflash: You are not special."

This was one of the times Stanley showed to people that we are all the same, and no one person is better than one.

5. "Why don't you mind your business."

Who doesn’t want privacy sometimes? No one? I didn’t think so. Stanley showed that he wants privacy just like us all.

6. “Dwight: Don't you want to earn Schrute bucks? Stanley: No. In fact, I'll give you a billion Stanley nickels if you never talk to me again. Dwight: What's the ratio of Stanley nickels to Schrute bucks? Stanley: The same as the ratio of unicorns to leprechauns.”

This conversation between Dwight showed that sometimes you just don’t like people, and that’s okay.

7. “I do not apologize unless I think I’m wrong, and if you don’t like it, you can leave.”

Haven’t we all thought we were right and didn’t feel like we should apologize? I know I have.

8. “If I don’t have some cake soon, I might die.”

I crave cake many hours out of my day, so without cake I feel like dying too.

9. “We get to go home!”

Lets how pretty much everyone feels after work or school.

10. “I wake up every morning in a bed that's too small, drive my daughter to a school that's too expensive, and then I go to work to a job for which I get paid too little. But on pretzel day? Well, I like pretzel day.“

What more could you want besides a pretzel day?

11. “It's true. Around this office in the past I have been a little abrupt with people. But the doctor said, if I can't find a new way to relate more positively to my surroundings, I'm going to die.”

Stanley proved that being negative will actually affect our health, in a very bad way.

12. “Next stop: pies!”

Stanley’s love for food just shows how much he is like everyone else.

13. "I would rather work for an upturned broom with a bucket for a head than work for somebody else in this office besides myself. Game on. "

Sometimes when you really don’t like a coworker you’ll do anything to not make them your boss.

14. “Did I stutter?”

Sometimes when you’re in an argument and the people are so dumbfounded you need to show back some sass.

15 Differences Between 'The Bachelor' And 'Temptation Island'

Lots of men, lots of women, lots of drama and just a few differences.


Dating shows are an addicting and intriguing past time for many viewers. "Temptation Island" and "The Bachelor" are two of these crazy dating shows that take over peoples lives. While the shows are very similar there are also a whole lot of differences.

1. The question of commitment 

"Temptation Island" puts four, mostly committed, couples in a group of a bunch of single men and women to try to tempt them to cheat.

2. The amount of people involved in the relationship 

"The Bachelor" is just one man with a group of women and he is, hopefully, not actually in a relationship going in (But it is Colton so you never know!)

3. Group dates

Every date on "Temptation Island" is a group date with eight people.

4. More on group dates

"The Bachelor" begins with a lot of group dates, but mixes in one-on-one and two-on-one dates as the season progresses

5. The plot point

The entire point of "The Bachelor" is to walk away in a committed engagement.

6. Pre-existing relationships . 

"Temptation Island" is almost the worst possible situation to put your relationship in; even worse than people who go on "The Bachelor" already in a relationship.

7. The oddities of housing

"The Bachelor" houses all of the contestants in one location while the star lives offsite somewhere. In "Temptation Island" the couples are separated and the four women live in a house will single men while the four men live in a separate house with single women.

8. How long the show has been on

"The Bachelor" has been on forever and people still love it.

9. The TV reboot 

"Temptation Island" is trying their third reboot since 2001 and I am not sure it will go anywhere after this season.

10. Oh the tears 

Everyone cries WAY more on "The Bachelor."

11. Elaborate dates 

The dates are more elaborate on "The Bachelor" compared to the boat rides and dinners on "Temptation Island."

12. Cocktail parties 

The idea of a cocktail party is more formal on "The Bachelor" because the man is not living in the house so every night can't be a party.

13. Formalities 

In general, "The Bachelor" is more about love and formalities.

14. One show is a hot mess and we all know which one it is

"Temptation Island" is a big hot mess of cheating and breaking up relationships.

15. The hosts 

Chris Harrison is a much better dating coach and host than the knock off Chris Harrison, Mark Walberg, that hosts "Temptation Island."

People will love one, the other, or both, but the contestants will probably not be loving their life while filming the show. I just hope all of these people will find a happy life and the perfect partner someday!
