Best Characters From The Office
It's safe to say that Michael was the heart of the series. Even though he can be a selfish awkward jerk, it's clear that he loves his employees time to time. He's hilarious especially when he does his "that's what she said!" quips, definitely one of the best TV characters we've had in a long time.
So funny and so dumb but a genius at the same time. After Steve Carroll left the show it really fell apart. Sure there where some funny moments but it was not like it was with good ole Mr. Scott
Sure Michael Scott is funny, but sometimes he's just way too much and just makes things way too uncomfortable. He shows obvious signs of being a narcissistic sociopath and doesn't really care about any other people except for himself... even Holly. Right before he left he was considering staying just because he thought it would make the workers like him more (My opinion). Now, I did watch the entire series stoned... So this kind of gave me a different perspective, however I highly recommend it.
Michael is the heart and soul of the office and the entire show. He does make me cringe a lot, but I enjoy watching him subvert my expectations every time. I felt like he was flawed, but he makes it work.
"Whenever I'm about to do something, I think 'Would an idiot do that?' And if they would, I do not do that thing."
"Who is Justice Beaver?"
"I love catching people in the act. That's why I always whip open doors."
""R' is among the most menacing of sounds. That's why they call it 'murder' and not 'mukduk'"
"When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life."
"You better learn your rules. If you don't, you'll be eaten in your sleep."
"Why are all these people here? There's too many people on this earth. We need a new plague."
"In the end, the greatest snowball isn't a snowball at all. It's fear. Merry Christmas."
"All you need is love. False. The four basic human necessities are air, water, food, and shelter."
"I am ready to face any challenge that might be foolish enough to face me."
"To avoid illness, expose yourself to ...more
The best thing about Dwight is the fact that he's unpredictable. He takes everything over the top in a hysterical way and his beet farm backstory is actually interesting. One of the funniest characters on the show!
Dwight is absolutely insane, and I love it. He makes a show about a seemingly normal office feel exciting, as his antics and beliefs are completely over the top.
Dwight was definitely the best. If it wasn't for Dwight, I would have stopped watching after Michael left. Pam had a superiority complex, Erin was just too stupid to tolerate, and Andy's character was so forced, I felt awkward every time he showed up on screen. Erin and Andy don't even rate to be in the top 15.
I really enjoy the edge Jim always seems to have over Dwight with regard to pranks. This kind of faded through the later seasons, and while it was good to see Jim's character fleshed out a little more, I missed watching him prank Dwight for Pam's amusement.
I LOVE Jim and of course all his pranks. It's funny when he looks at the camera or at Pam with an that-was-awkward look.
Jim-(to dwight) do you shower at night? Or do you shower in the morning? 'cause I wanna shower when you're showering... Save some water.
He's amazing. He plays the straight man in the series, often a very challenging role especially in an ensemble comedy but he is able to make me laugh every time.
I LOVE Jim! Watching him mess with Dwight is what made me like the show in the first place. He is the perfect combination of funny and sweet..
Creed feels like a dude who wandered in off the street and got a job without anybody noticing. His "experiences" are mesmerizing, and completely random, and make me laugh every single time.
Creed: How about I set you up with my daughter?
Jim: Oh I'm engaged to pam?
Creed: I thought you were gay
Jim: Then why would you want to set me up with your daughter
Creed: I don't know
Gabe: I have conducted my investigation and the leak was Andy
Andy: Based on what?
Gabe: Oh I don't know just all the evidence and it just really seems like it was you
Jim: I think this is unfair we don't for sure know it was Andy
Andy: Yea for all we know it could be Jim
Pam: It could be even you Gabe
CREED: Ok I think we can say it was either Gabe or Angela... It was Angela! Get her boys!
When Michael and Dwight frame Toby for carrying drugs and the police arrive in the office... Creed is talking to the camera crew "Just pretend like were talking until the cops leave"
So much character development:
Season 1: Sweet and very shy. In an unhealthy relationship but is still kind and caring
Season 2: Still in a bad relationship but we learn more about her and she becomes almost everyone's favorite
Season 3: Decides she wants to be more confident and is still sweet and loveable
Season 4: Gets into a good healthy relationship and is happy and strong
Seasn 5: Gets engaged and is happy. Goes to art school and shows that she will always find a way to be happy
Season 6: Gets married and had a kid! Is postitive and happy
Season 8: has another kid! Is the happiest in her life
Season 9: goes through some relationship troubles but works through them.
Finale: Has 2 kids is happy and moves to Texas so her husbands happy. Her life is perfect just the way she deserves it
I bonded the most with Pam over the show, I absolutely don't understand the criticism towards her here. Maybe more down to Earth than Jim, Pam sees some of the greatest development throughout the show.
To sum it up I'll just quote Michael;
"I would never say this to her face, but she's a wonderful person and a gifted artist."
And that's coming from the guy at number one. So many memorable moments with her; her rant at beach day, talking back and forth with Jim when they were out of sync, her not wanting to have the baby because she was scared, her animating the ending of the Dunder Mifflin ad, the beloved romantic development she had with Jim, the incentive she gave to watch the show early on, when Michael hugged her at the art gallery, the panning to her drawing at the end of the show which is enough to make a man cry... all of this wouldn't be possible without Pam.
Michael cherished her, Dwight said she was his best friend, and Jim literally loved her. If ...more
I really loved the progression of Pam's character, and she kind of reminds me of myself; shy, quiet, artistic, and ambitious. She started off as this shy receptionist who let everyone walk all over her; letting others put her down. When she got with Jim, she began to stand her own ground, and everyone watched her progress into a strong businesswoman and artist.
So chill, like-ably awkward and adorable. Typically, I'd vote Dwight or Michael, because they rule, but come on. Pam is a sweet heart and a very underrated character. Maybe not the best in the show, but definitely one of the bests. I loved her from episode one and still do, even if she wasn't handled too well near the end of the show.
I think that Kevin is way more funny than Andy. Also, I hate Andy when he leaves on the boast and leaves Erin, and when he comes back he tries to fire pete.
He's so underrated. He's just kevin lovable kevin. Also, I've noticed that another thing that's underrated is his friendship with erin and his friendship with oscar
Kevin sounds like Mr. Plinkett, but slow and aloof instead of senile and psychotic. I love it when he states the obvious, especially at the most inconvenient of times. Would love to try his chili too... before he spills it on the floor of course.
Kevin is by far the funniest character in the entire show. His facial expressions never fail to make me fall out of my chair laughing; and the fact that he has no filter and just says whatever is on his mind results in some extremely funny moments. One of the best moments of the entire show might have been when he dropped the chili in season 5. Kevin is one of the funniest characters I have ever seen in any T.V. show, and he deserves to be WAY higher on this list than #7!
I was trying to think of my favorite Office character before settling on Andy Bernard. They turned him into a complete jerk in season 9, but looking past that (and pretending that season 9 never happened in this case), he truly had one of the more heartwarming arcs. He started out as a bit of a jerk, but then became a new man, and a funnier man. He then turned into a very likeable character when he fell in love with Erin, which was one of the better The Office relationships. And, then when Michael left, he became a great boss. Then, after that, everything kind of fell apart, to be honest.
Andy's easily one of the most likable characters after Michael leaves. Jim is great, but Andy's much more of a complex character in the show. The writers had put so much effort into Andy and everything that happened to him as a whole. Andy and Erin's relationship was great, and the office was at a turnover once he became regional manager. He's like a mixture of Michael, Dwight, AND Jim all at once! He's great and in my opinion the best character.
I love his nickity names, soft personality (minus his angry moments and most of season 9), all his singing/banjo moments, and his heart warming relationship with Erin. He genuinely really wanted to be liked, which really made us root for him, and his character arc (before season 9) is quite inspiring and amazing to watch. Andy’s play is my favourite episode!
Oh my gosh andy is literally the funniest character ever! Andy and Erin's relationship was the cutest thing ever and andy has some of the best one-liners and with his anger issues and insecurity and nostalgia, how is he it at least in the top 3?
Stanley doesn't take crap, but I enjoy that he works for his family and retirement. I love how he looks forward to crosswords and Pretzel Day, and all he really cares about is working for a life where he doesn't have to work. I also love it when he goes off on people; it's a beautiful thing.
"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."
"Every day I wake up in a bed that's too small, drive my daughter to a school that's too expensive, and then go work at a job in which I get paid too little. But on pretzel day... well, I like pretzel day." (Possibly the best line on the office)
All I have to do to laugh out loud watching the Office is look at Stanley's face in the background. All I can imagine is him forever thinking "ugh this crap again? "
I enjoy Erin's combination of awkwardness and enthusiasm. I like her dedication to Michael is wonderful, and her solo interviews with the camera crew are gold.
One of the characters I disliked the most. She obviously has bipolar disorder, she's sometimes hyperactive and slightly obsessive. But yeah her bipolar thought patterns and her being unnecessarily overthinking, but also her stupidity sometimes made me cringe.
Beautiful funny adorable! I love her facial expressions and her reactions always make me crack up! great addition to the show !
I adore her father-daughter relationship with Michael. She is caring and funny! They did need a new receptionist. Pam is great but was getting a bit boring sometimes.
I respect Darryl for all the crap he puts up with. Him getting his own office upstairs is one of my favorite moments in the series, and I'm glad Jo Bennett notices Darryl's potential. Darryl takes his work seriously as well, and I really enjoy the friendship he strikes up with Andy as well.
Remember in the Rabies Awareness episode? They were talking about rabies, and Darryl was feeding that squirrel. ANd Darryl was like
"He's so happy!"
That's why he is my favorite.
Yeah Darryl is great. He may be one of the most "normal" characters in the show, but I think his dexterity and dry sense of humor really balance out the show.
Belongs to the top ten in my opinion. He perfectly represents that chill, mildly hoggish, slightly egoistic black dude.
Angela is actually so funny - I find myself dying of laughter every time she says a line. She is so extremely blunt with people, making her hilarious, and every sentence she says is exactly to the point and concise - she is SO funny.
"There is poop raining from the ceiling! Poop! " Angela's sense of humor was different but it was one of the funniest. I loved seeing her relationship with Dwight
I don't get why she is so low on the list, here seriousness makes he the most funny character. I love it how at the dundies awards she won the award for being a tight-ass I laughed so hard
I don't really know why I like her so much, but she is definitely my favorite.
She should be last she is the worst her voice is so annoying
"Ryan used me as an object" is the best line from The Office ever.
So can annoying. Can't stand her voice and presence.
Kelly is just plain annoying and naive.
To me he's the only decent human being in the show, and everyone hates him just for beind a reasonable person. (I'm right around where he moved to Costa Rico).
Toby is so underrated. He's always been my favorite and my heart goes out for him. I just wanna give him a hug.
If I had to bullets and I was in a room with hitler, bin laden, and toby, I would shoot toby twice.
If it were up to Michael, I suspect Toby would be at the very bottom.
She's truly Michaels soul mate, even if she sometimes tries too hard to be like him, which isn't necessary and sometimes annoying. She seems a little insecure and strange sometimes.
Michael's wife and the best girl out of all the girls Michael's dated
Holly is awesome!
The way he runs and never says much is hilarious. Also the one time he puts Angela in the trunk of his car is funny.
Love Mose, particularly the scene in the background where he hit Andy in the head with the football.
I loved when he was the valet for the garden party and floored the car into the cornfield
The first scene where he sprints through the field next to the car had me dying XD
I have a lot of respect for Oscar, as he is one of the only characters who really takes his job seriously. He's an underdog type, who is very smart, and overqualified for accounting.
Oscar is one of my favorite characters, and extremely underrated. I love his friendship with Kevin, his interactions, and his personality. I love that he is smart and I love his snarky remarks. While the character arc with the senator portrayed Oscar in a bad light, I still adore this character. Should be rated higher on this list
I love oscar, he's great! He had to most wonderful friendship with angela at the end and I adored his sassy remarks throughout the series.
Intelligent, kind, funny, handsome and appears to be the hardest-working employee. He would be my friend I hope if I worked in that office ().
After Dwight, Michael and Creed, it should be David.
Jim and Pam are funny because there's Dwight.
Oscar is noticeable because of Kevin.
I'd vote for Karen than Pam anytime.
Andy - awkward character
Erin - extremely dumb to watch.
David WALLACE IS THE BEST! He brought so much to the show, and without him...the show would not exist because then there would be no Scranton without him.
Should be number one
He slightly resembles BJ Novak, the guy who created the show. I wonder why
Ryan is that premature acting, hasty, self-evident and conceited prick. lol
Because Ryan started the fire.
Ryan should be WAY higher he is so funny. I like him in “the injury
He reminds of Trump and seems like a psycho- or at least sociopath to me. He's very opposite of Michael, being very manipulative, serious and egoistic, knowing what he wants and how to get it. Examples of his manipulativeness: from the first moments he came in, everyone obeyed him almost like slaves and some were even scared of him, when he tries to reach out to Dwight, he fails because Dwight is a good manipulator and intelligent person himself, too.
Okay... so not a lot of appreciation for Robert California on this page. Well Robert really made a difference to me! With Michael gone they needed someone to make the show just as weird and unpredictable, which he did but in a different way. Actually I think he was WAY more unpredictable than Michael in the sense that you always knew when Michael was going to do something stupid, but you never knew when Robert was going to have a stroke of genius. Well... he is actually a genius. by the way... am I the only one that caught the reference when he said to Andy "You don't even know my real name. I'm the Lizard King." This could be a reference to the conspiracy theory that a lot of the world's most powerful people are... well Lizard aliens. I don't personally believe in this but hey. maybe one of the shows writers came in to work blazed or something... Nevrtheless. Robert California is the S***
He wired and has sone of the best quotes ever why are people like finger lakes guy higher
How the hell is he in the last place?
Prison Mike reminded me a little bit of Michael Scott. Anybody else?
Best Character by far. He really should've been in the finale.
The worst part about prison were the dementors
"I never got caught neither"
I found the dinner party hilarious with Jan playing her issues off of the guests and Michael.
Shear genius - plays the straight laced boss brilliantly and then transforms the character into the sex crazed slightly insane dominatrix type partner, bet she had real fun playing the role
The most underrated character on the show. FYI, he doesn't have a hearing problem...
Sensible, insecure and pretty weird dude.
By far the most underrated character
"Daryl I will look so handsome for you."
