Ten amazing 'Office' quotes from Steve Carell

'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

Chinesepod's Carlie discusses the meaning of the name 'Huawei' in light of the recent national security concerns of the Whitehouse

Last week Steve Carell bid goodbye to the hit NBC comedy “The Office” after seven seasons. Tonight’s season finale will explore what life at Dunder Mifflin is like in his absence. It is unclear who will take on the role as regional manager but one thing is certain, Carell’s Michael Scott provided some seriously memorable quotes. Though it seems impossible to choose only a few, here are ten extra memorable moments. “Guess what? I have flaws. What are they? Oh I donno, I sing in the shower? Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me-- no, don't sue me. That is opposite the point I'm trying to make.” (Season 4 “Fun Run”) Toby: “Hey Michael, I have an extra twin bed if you want.” Michael Scott: “You are going to be sleeping by yourself for the rest of your life so you should just get used to it.” (Season 6 “Niagara: Part 1”) “Finish your cake, Helene. I want you to enjoy that cake. Because I have something terrible I need to tell you. And I want you to enjoy your cake before I tell you this terrible, terrible thing.” (Season 6 “The Lover’) “The only time you should care about a woman's age is if she is too young for you. And I am not robbing the cradle. If anything, I am robbing the grave...” (Season 6 “The Lover’) “Toby is in HR, which technically means he works for corporate, so he's really not a part of our family. Also, he's divorced, so he's really not a part of his family.” (Season 2 “Sexual Harassment”) “Stanley, how about that hot picture you have by your desk? Centerfold in the Catholic schoolgirls' outfit? I mean it is hot, it is sexy and it turns him on and I will admit- best part of my morning is staring at it. But what are we just going to take it away?” Stanley: “That is my daughter, she goes to Catholic girls school. I'm taking it down right now.” (Season 2 “Sexual Harassment”) “A guy goes to a $5 lady of the night, and he gets crabs. So the next day he goes back to complain and the woman says, 'Hey, it was only $5, what did you expect... lobster?' (Season 2 “Sexual Harassment”) “So you know who turned out to be kinda a creep? Ben Franklin. And, Elizabeth, the stripper, gave me great advice, which rhymed. Really makes you wonder how Ben Franklin can become president but someone like Elizabeth can't.” (Season 3 “Ben Franklin”) Is there a God? [pause] If not, what are all these churches for? And who is Jesus's dad?” (Season 4 “Fun Run”) “How about this; I throw a corpse dressed like me off the roof. It hits the ground and the head pops off. And this leads to me saying the line "I lost my head when I fell in love with you". And it's easy to get a corpse these days, right? Just call the local medical college.” (Season 7 “Garage Sale”)
