Best Episodes of The Office (USA)


The Top Ten

1 The Injury

Reason for visit? Concussion... why? What did you write? Taking someone to hospital.
What's worse, a head injury or a foot injury? Head. Well you haven't seen the foot

I don't have a girlfriend. I made it up. haha. Plus Jim spraying Dwight with the spray bottle. - lisarose

pure gunious! dwight is soooo funny in this episode.

The affected area would be red and swollen... That's what she said

2 The Dinner Party

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

This is my absolute favorite episode. Almost perfect, back when the Office was funny. I have watched it several times and it still makes me laugh. A true classic!

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!

3 Threat Level Midnight

Looks Like There's going to be a cleanup on Isle 5.

Michael, you have to stop the puck before half time!

Classic episode. Perfect for sleepovers

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?

4 Stress Relief

This should be in the top ten! I love how Dwight acts in Parts 1 and 2!

Michael This song reminds me of death. It sounds nice.

Seriously, heart donor! Lol! I like how Dwight cuts the face off the dummy and uses it as a mask! I also like that fire drill that scared the crap out of everyone! Lol! This would probably be how much they would crap their pants if it was a real fire. Five piles of poop in a row! Everyone gets stressed out by Michael. MORE LOL! THIS EPISODE IS SO FUNNY! EVEN MORE LOL!

Has to be the best opening 5 minutes of any office episode.

The cold open is the best of the entire series, the roast as well as michael In the park is iconic

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!

Greatest quote in television history:
“Dwight you ignorant slut! ”

"Your kind don't drive well. " -Pam

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.

Michael kisses Oscar, any more needed. No.

Never laughed so much in my life!

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

So funny when stanley dribbles the ball!

9 Murder

Every character has a very funny role in this episode... Down in savana... Love voodoo mama joo joo

There's been another murda


I love the face Andy makes when Kevin asks out Erin while they were role playing. And when Kevin asks Andy to do the Swedish Chef impression.

10 Goodbye Toby

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!

Michaels face when he looks at toby behind his hand is so funny

So many funny moments in this episode

12 Business School

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

13 The Merger

Andy Steals the computer, haha


14 Casino Night

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!

32? What! - Metarock

15 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

Michael: “These aren’t oysters.”
Dwight: “That’s right, these are bull testicles, cut them fresh this morning! ”
Michael: *Spits them out*
“You sick freak! ”

And that’s just the first literal 30 seconds of the episode

16 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

17 The Dundies

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!

18 Diversity Day
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.'

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

My #1!

23 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!


24 Office Olympics

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

25 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

Agreed! I also love the episode where Jim dresses as Dwight! "BEARS, BEATS, BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA! "

26 Garage Sale

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

27 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!

28 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***?! ”

29 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

30 The Alliance

31 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...
