2 The Dinner Party

It was simply the best

I often come back to this episode and it never fails to make me laugh. Jan and Michael are so uncomfortable, it really shows how dysfunctional their relationship really is. But the interactions between the charecters shown are just hilarious!

I have watched this so many times it makes me cry from laughing so hard. Sometimes I come up here and I just smell all my candles! I'm the devil! She is! You know Pam the Spanish typically don't eat dinner until midnight... When in Rome!

this one was really good
when jim said that they both were winning I actually pooped myself

3 Threat Level Midnight

Classic episode. Perfect for sleepovers

Me and my friends do the Scarn all the time

M: Why did you tell me this?
girlfriend: Because I'm going to kill you unless you forgive me for killing your wife.
(sentimental music plays while dwight in the background does the weighing motion with his hands)
M: Hey Goldenface!
girlfriend: What?

Meet new friends
Tie that yarn
That’s how you do the Scarn!

Kevin, I could not decide between a fat joke, or a stupid joke. Boom roasted

Wheres the heart...the precious the heart.

You walk into the castle and there are four men inside, and none of them have shoes...
Boom roasted!

1. The fire drill
2. CPR
3. Michael Scott roast
Nothing more needs to be said.

5 Safety Training

This episode brought both iconic hillarious scenes and was a turning point in michael's plot: realizing that he isn't perfect and turning it into a comical and beautiful moment by roasting the other employees. Also, this episode brought an important turning point in Jim and pams relationship that connected us more to the realistic couple. This episode was the turning point between the office having an uncomfortable and awkward boss to the office having a loving and affectionate boss that the employees appreciated, and it was brought in both an emotional and incredibly comical way.

The opening to this episode is one of the greatest moments in Television history.

I can't believe this isn't in the top ten. this 2 part episode was so hilarious, especially the beginning. SAVE BANDIT!

This is crazy how it is not even in the top 10. So Funny.

7 Gay Witch Hunt

'I don't call retarded people retards. I call my friends retards.. When they are acting retarded. " Pure Michael Scott! Hilarious.

Never laughed so much in my life!

Michael kisses Oscar, any more needed. No.

This episode is by far the best! Dwight: "Jim says you can buy gay-dar online! " And when Jim sends Dwight the gay-dar in the mail. Priceless!

8 Basketball

"IN YOUR FACE IN YOUR FACE! " classic immaturity from Michael, the brilliance of the first season was how one dimensional michael was. Still a big fan of his vulnerability that develops in the other seasons though

Funny because of how bad Michael stinks at basketball (and Dwight's face mask) The best part is when Michael throws the ball to the top of the warehouse and hits a metal pipe.

The Office vs The Warehouse clash in a hilarious game of basketball definitely the funniest episode out them all

The funniest one is really The Convict. Basketball is second.

There's been another murda

10 Goodbye Toby

So many funny moments in this episode

I want an anti gravity machine.

One of the best Season Finales. Toby's leaving for Costa Rica, Holly makes her first appearance, Andy Proposes to Angela when Jim was going to propose to Pam. Angela is caught cheating on Andy with Dwight by Phyllis. Most eventful Office episode ever.

Kevin being "retarded", Michael forcing himself to be nice to Toby, Jan getting knocked up, Andy beating big Tuna to the punch on proposing, Ryan getting fired, etc... This episode has it all!

12 Business School

The vampire episode, Michael showing up to Pam's art show.. one of the classics!

13 Casino Night

32? What! - Metarock

Obvious choice Michael is great in this episode. creed at the end winning the fridge was also funny

Jim and Pam... Best T.V. couple!

14 The Merger


Andy Steals the computer, haha

15 The Dundies

"you just won a tiny dundie" - MetsGirl34

If there anything funnier than Phyllis award with the misspelling bushiest beaver instead of busiest beaver! I lose it every time I see this one!

16 Diversity Day
17 A.A.R.M.

After seeing every episode this was by far my favorite. It had Jim messing with Dwight, a beautiful Pam and Jim moment that I just want to watch over and over, an amazing Angela and Dwight moment and to top it off the greatest send off (after Michael) with Darryl that is hilarious.

This episode is AMAZING and funny and so romantic the whole Pam and Jim situation where he just wants to tell her how much she means to him JIM IS SO ROMANTIC, HOT AND MOST AMAZING PERSON

A great calm way to show the characters before their finale episode!

All the stuff going on made it my favorite episode

18 Goodbye, Michael

It's sad, warm and funny all at the same time. Love it when Pam catches up with Michael at the airport.

Come on people! Most emotional episode of the whole series, should be in the top 5!

This one was my favorite. I cried when Pam ran over to him at the airport

I cried. Should have ended the show after this episode.
Michael's last words.

"This feels good to get this off my chest. That's what she said. Bye."

19 Beach Games

Why is this low I think it should be in the top ten

20 The Job
21 Stress Relief: Part 1

Dwight's fire was the best three minutes of the office I've ever seen. Everyone's character outright hilarious. Between Angela pulling cats out of the drawer, kevin stealing vending machine snacks, and oscar falling through the ceiling I was DYING.

This episode is hilarious! Dwight starts a fire and Stanley has a heart attack and almost dies!

22 Fun Run

'hello this the headquarters for the Michael scott fun run pro am race for the cure.'

My #1!

Darryl (feeding a peanut to a squirrel): Look how happy he is!
Michael: He's happy because he's insane.

23 Office Olympics

This episode was so good that during the show's finale they referenced still having their medals (yogurt lids) from this episode.

24 Niagara


All those moments of anticipation of Jim and Pam getting together finally comes to this, and that scene when they're on the boat and Pam's head is on Jims shoulder, that's what made the show. I love this episode!

25 Garage Sale

Where Michael marries Holly and tells everybody he's moving for Colorado.

26 Conflict Resolution

I love how there is a hole separate file for Michael and there is a box for Dwight so it will be shipped to the head offices. He is so clueless!

Love the "Eenie, meenie, miney, mo" when Michael shows his disdain for Toby. I love the interplay between these two.

Michael: Someone complained that the men's room is white only. Stanley, you know that's not true. Creed: Then why is there a picture of a white man on the door? Laugh Out Loud

You see the best of jim's pranks on dwight!
Dwight: today I hit my self in the head with a phone
Jim: yeah that one took a while.

27 Dwight K. Schrute, (Acting) Manager

Dwight fires a gun off in the office.

Kevin: You could put a banana in it.
Dwight: Why would I put a banana in my holster?
Kevin: In case you weren't hungry now, but you got hungry later.

Dwight: *Dumps his parahna in the toilet.
Kevin: *Walks into the bathroom*
Says- “What the f***?! ”

Dwight: *Puts pet parahna in the toilet*
Kevin: *Walks into the bathroom*
Kevin: “What the f***?! ”

28 Product Recall

Home of the classic line: "bears, beets, battlestar galactica."
however, it wasn't just the cold open that was funny. this whole episode was a real gem. - HeyheyIzDaKaykay

29 Launch Party

Jim Halpert:There's this cube on the screen which bounces around all day. And sometimes, it looks like it's going right in the corner of the screen and at the last minute it hits the wall and bounces away. We are all just dying to see it go right into the corner. Pam claims that she saw it one day when she was alone in the conference room. Okay. I believe she thinks she saw it.
Pam Beesly:I saw it. I saw it and it was amazing. Who said I didn't see it? Did Jim say that I didn't see it? I saw it!

Basically describes the episode.

The whole pizza delivery bit was hysterical.

Classic office episode, I could watch the cube on the screen bit a thousand times and not get bored!

30 Finale

Michael Comes Back for Dwight's Wedding, Erin finds her birth parents, Angela gets married to Dwight, Kevin and Toby got fired, Jim and Pam left for Texas, Oscar runs for State Senate, Stanley retires, Creed was arrested, a great way for a ending finale.

By far my favorite and the most beautiful episode...

Great episode

32 Take Your Daughter to Work Day

37 Benihanna Christmas
38 Traveling Salesman / The Return
39 Health Care

Anal fissures?!

That's real.

Yeah but nobody here has it!

(Akward pause)

Someone has it..

Dwight storming into the bullpin demanding to know who wrote the ridiculous medical ailments they wanted covered by insurance.

40 Grief Counseling

The episode is all about Michael worrying about dying alone and a lovely ending with Pam letting him know that he is cared for.

An especially great episode for Ryan. They are having a funeral for a bird found I the parking lot and he goes, "when I was five, my mom said my fish had to go to the hospital in the toilet and had a funeral. I remember thinking, 'i'm too old for this'... And I was 5. "

Dwight's recorder is my favorite thing about dwight
