The Best Episodes of the Office (US Version)

If you’ve ever watched the antics that go on at Dunder Mifflin, then we’re sure you’re hooked. But if not, here are the best episodes of The Office.

Oh, and you really should watch it… it’s awesome!


1. The Job (Season 3, Episode 23)

Michael, Karen and Jim are all interviewed by corporate for a new job. What they don’t know is it’s Jan’s job, and boy is she mad.

She storms the interview room and has to be escorted out by security after she goes crazy! One good thing for her, though, is her relationship with Michael takes a turn for the better, thanks to her new surgically enhanced boobs!

Best quote:

Michael Scott: Why is my office black?

Dwight Schrute: To intimidate my subordinates.

Michael Scott: That’s stupid.

2. Dinner Party (Season 4, Episode 9)

One of the most awkward episodes of all time was the one where poor Jim and Pam are forced to go to Michael and Karen’s house for dinner after they foolishly say they’ve got nothing planned that evening.

The night ends in total disaster when the cops are called on Karen after she goes crazy and smashes a TV.

Best Quote:

Michael Scott: It rhymes with Parnold Schwarzenegger.

3. Halloween (Season 2, Episode 5)

Michael has been putting off firing someone after getting his orders from head office, and now the day of reckoning has come.

Meanwhile, Pam suggests to Jim that he goes for a vacancy at a rival firm, forcing a to camera confession from Jim that he’s only staying at Dunder Mifflin because of Pam! Wow, Jim it only took you two-and-a-half seasons!

Funniest moment: Dwight dressing like a Sith lord from Star Wars, and people thinking he is a monk. Never has a grown man been so sulky.

4. Drug Testing (Season 2, Episode 20)

After Dwight finds half a joint in the parking lot, the whole office is forced to take a drugs test with Michael worried he’ll fail as he got a contact high at an Alicia Keys concert.

He’s so panicked that he convinces Dwight to give him a cup of Dwight’s urine. Eurgh.

Funniest moment: Jim is forced to stay silent after Pam calls jinx, and she makes the most of the situation by winding him up.

5. Customer Survey (Season 5, Episode 6)

Dwight and Jim turn super-sleuth after their performance ratings are suspiciously low. Could it be that they’re being framed by an aggrieved colleague?

Funniest moment:

Michael gets Jim and Dwight to do a role play sales call after they get terrible customer service scores, but Jim – or should we say – Bill Buttlicker doesn’t take it seriously.

6. Travelling Salesmen (Season 3, Episode 12)

Dwight is late into work after filing some paperwork at corporate for Angela, but Michael suspects an alternative motive, leaving Dwight to quit the office rather than reveal his relationship with Angela.

Best Quote:

Michael Scott: You know what they say; fool me once, strike one. Fool me twice, strike three.

7. Goodbye, Michael (Season 7, Episode 21)

Michael is trying to leave for Colorado and wants just one peaceful day before he goes. Heaven knows that’s not gonna happen anytime soon.

Best moment: The final goodbye between Michael and Pam at the airport. Not a dry eye in the house after that one.

8. The Injury (Season 2, Episode 12)

Everyone gets annoyed when Michael acts like a pathetic child all day after burning his foot on a George Foreman grill which he keeps by his bed. Loyal Dwight rushes to save him and crashes his car in the process, then begins to behave nicely to Pam, so something MUST be up.

He’s rushed to the hospital to find he has a concussion, but Michael still worries about himself.

Funniest moment: Michael puts his foot in his mouth after declaring his foot injury has rendered him disabled. He invites a colleague who uses a wheelchair to speak about his own disability, and to no-one’s surprise offends his guest, prompting Jim to say ‘I wanna clamp Michael’s face in a George Foreman grill!’

9. Broke (Season 5, Episode 23)

Michael has formed his own paper company, but he has no idea how to run the numbers, so he’s gone broke. Dunder Mifflin looks to buy him out, with the help of the bumbling Dwight and indifferent Jim.

What could go wrong?

Best Quote:

Dwight Schrute: I say we fill Michael’s office with bees. My apiarist owes me a favor.

Jim Halpert: Really? Does he do good work or…

Dwight Schrute: [Sarcastically] No, Jim, I use a bad apiarist.

10. Initiation (Season 3, Episode 5)

Who could forget all the ridiculous tests that Dwight put new staff member Ryan through when he got given a sales role at Dunder Mifflin?

That poor guy really suffered through a lot, including Dwight saying he’s going to plant his seed in him!

Best Quote:

Dwight Schrute (to Ryan): One must wrestle fear to the ground. You will now wrestle my cousin Mose!
