'The Office:' An A To Z Guide

All the terms and quotes you never knew you needed from "The Office."

NBC // Youtube

"The Office" is debatably one of the funniest, most charismatic shows to ever air on TV. From Jim's prank wars to Michael's craziness, there was never a dull moment for fans. With that being said, if you are having a bad day, week, month, year, life, then enjoy some laughs with "The Office" A to Z guide:

ASAP as possible.

That's how you say it, right, Michael Scott?

Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica

The ultimate roast made by Jim to Dwight. What better way to get under someone's skin than to pretend to be them?


The classy restaurant where the Dundies were held every year. The classy restaurant Pam got trashed at and got kicked out of. The classy restaurant where Jim and Pam's love kindled. Welcome to Chili's.

Dunder Mifflin

The paper company that brought all our favorite people together to make such pure enjoyment.

Everybody stay calm!

Stay calm! Dwight may have just started a fire because not one person listened to his safety rules.

Fool me once, strike one. Fool me twice, strike three

But, Michael, where is strike 2?

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering.

Nobody can be perfect. They just overwork and constantly do things to help the community like Michael Scott.

How the turntables….

Turned? No, no wait...what is it again?

I declare bankruptcy!

Remember the time Michael literally declared bankruptcy by screaming it in front of everyone in the office?

Just pretend that we're talking until the cops leave.

I think the cops had the wrong person? Instead of investigating the caprese salad in Toby's desk, they should have been asking Creed about his Meth dealer.

Kevin's Famous Chili

I guess no one will ever be able to taste his famous chili now that it spilled absolutely everywhere.

Little Kid Lover

Michael Scott's dating profile username. Just so everyone knows where his priorities are.

Michael Scott

The world's best boss. The regional manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch.

No, Rose, they are not breathing. And they have no arms or legs…Where are they?

How is Michael expected to do CPR if there are no arms and legs? They are clearly crucial to completing the task.

Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me.

Poor Meredith. It's OK Michael, everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days.


Never forget Michael, Andy, and Dwight's attempt to look cool and then falling into an empty cardboard box. Do it for the Vine.


The start of almost every sentence Dwight speaks to Michael.

Rabies Awareness Fun Run

When someone gets rabies, you obviously hold a run to cure it even though it already has a cure. Michael is just way too generous.


The electric city where all the magic happens. Dunder Mifflin wouldn't be complete without you.

That's what she said.

The one-liner that grabbed all of our attention from the start. Thank you, Michael Scott.


Absolutely everything about "The Office" is unethical. They do not follow regular office protocols, but that makes for a good story! I could not imagine them acting in any other way.

Vance Refrigeration

They share a building with Dunder Mifflin, and I can say I'm honestly extremely jealous of them.

Well, happy birthday, Jesus. Sorry, your party's so lame.

Michael failed at yet another Christmas party.


The moment we found out our all-time favorite couple would be having their first child! Pam and Jim are ultimate goals.

Yankee Swap

The Christmas gift swapping game. You get an iPod and you get a knitted oven mitten? That seems about fair. However, there is nothing more precious than the teapot Jim got for Pam.


What Michael sang about and swore won't be in attendance at the Diwali Christmas party.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
