Directions: Choose the word that best completes the sentence.

  • Hey you know what Dwight?  Maybe we should get our photo ID taken together.
  • That doesn't make any sense.
  • Well it saves time.  You know, (because) we could just meet in the parking lot every morning.  Walk in together. Perfect. 
  • Smile.
  • No. I never smile (if) I can help it. Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. (When) someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.
  • This came out really well. There you go.
  • This is humongous, I am not a security threat, (and) my middle name is "Kurt" not "Fart."
  • What did I write?

  • I have another complaint for Jim's permanent file.
  • Talk to Michael. I gave him the Box.
  • What box?

  • Four years of malfeasance unreported. This cannot stand.
  • Okay. Calm down.
  • No, you calm down! Whose side is Toby on? Who side are you on - him or me? I cannot work with Jim anymore. Either he goes or I go.
  • Dwight.
  • You choose!
  • Stop!
  • One of us is out of here by the end of today!

  • I am not bluffing. Do the right thing here Michael, okay? I have served you loyally for years. I deserve this. You know I do.
  • You know your ID says you're a security threat?
  • You have until five.

  • Oh look Jim. There's a sales position open in Stanford. Want me to call Jan (and) tell her you're interested? I could put in a good word for you (because) I'll still be working here. Transfer! Transfer! Transfer! Everybody! Transfer! Transfer! Transfer! Transfer!
  • Okay you two. In the conference room with me. Nobody leaves (until) we work this out - cage match.

  • Cage matches? Yeah they work. How could they not work? (If) they did not work, everybody would still be in the cage.
  • Okay. So Dwight in your own words, "Somebody replaced all my pens and pencils with crayons. I suspect Jim Halpert." "Everyone has called me Dwayne all day. I think Jim Halpert paid them to."
  • Yes. Five bucks each, (and) it was totally worth it.
  • This morning I found a bloody glove in my desk drawer, (and) Jim Halpert tried to convince me I committed murder. I think he may be the real murderer.
  • Jim Halpert said there was an abandoned infant in the women's room. (When) I went to save the child, I saw Meredith on the can.
  • This morning I knocked myself in the head with the phone.
  • That actually took a while. I had to put more and more nickels into his handset (until) he got used to the weight, (and) then I just took them all out.
  • (Everytime) I type my name, it says "diapers."
  • Just a simple macro. You know these actually don't sound that funny one after another. But he does deserve it though.
  • By the end of the day, my desk was about two feet closer to the copier.
  • Yeah, I just moved it every time he went to the bathroom. And that's how I spent my entire day that day.

Dwight: That doesn't make any sense.

Jim: Well it saves time.  You know. Cuz we could just meet in the parking lot every morning.  Walk in together. Perfect. 

Photographer: Smile.

Dwight: No. I never smile if I can help it. Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.

Jim: This came out really well. There you go.

Dwight: This is humongous; I am not a security threat, and my middle name is Kurt not Fart.

Jim: What did I write?

Dwight: I have another complaint for Jim's permanent file.
