"The Office: Did I Stutter? (#4.12)" (2008)
Michael Scott: I don't understand why you keep picking on me.
Stanley Hudson: Oh, for the love of God.
Michael Scott: You just do, and I don't know why, so please help me understand.
Stanley Hudson: Fine. Here it is. You are a person I do not respect. The things you say, your actions, your methods and style, everything you do, I would do it the opposite way.
Michael Scott: Well, Stanley, maybe you are feeling that you don't respect me because you don't know me very well.
Stanley Hudson: Michael, I've known you a very long time, and the more I've gotten to know you, the less I have come to respect you. Any other theories?
Michael Scott: All right, you don't respect me. I accept that. But listen to me. You can't talk to me that way in this office, you just can't. I am your boss. Can't allow it.
Stanley Hudson: Fair enough.

Stanley: Did I stutter?

Michael Scott: Stanley Hudson, you are fired.
Stanley: Are you serious?
Michael Scott: I am serious. We are all serious. You are fired like a heart attack.

Stanley Hudson: It's like I used to tell my wife. "I do not apologize unless I think I'm wrong, and if you don't like it, you can leave." And I say the same thing to my current wife, and I'll say it to my next one, too.


"The Office: Beach Games (#3.22)" (2007)
[before the Hot Dog eating contest]
Stanley Hudson: I would rather work for an upturned broom with a bucket for a head than work for somebody else in this office besides myself. Game on.

Michael Scott: Everybody, may I have you attention, please? Today, we are not just spending a day at the beach.
Stanley Hudson: Oh, sweet mother of God.
Michael Scott: If you don't like it, Stanley, you can go to the back of the bus.
Stanley Hudson: Excuse me?
Michael Scott: Or the front of the bus or drive the bus.

Michael Scott: [choosing team names for the company's beach day] We are going to choose team names. Dwight.
Dwight Schrute: We will be called Gryffindor.
Jim Halpert: Really? Not Slytherin?
Dwight Schrute: Slytherin are the bad guys, Jim.
Jim Halpert: I know. Okay, we will be Voldemort.
Dwight Schrute: He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named? I wouldn't do that.
Jim Halpert: [with his team, while Dwight tells them not to] Voldemort. Voldemort. Voldemort. Voldemort. Voldemort.
Michael Scott: Idiots. Idiots. Okay, okay. Stanley, your team name?
Stanley: I don't care what you name my team.
Michael Scott: Then I will name your team the Red Team.
Stanley: No, the Blue Team.


"The Office: Branch Wars (#4.6)" (2007)
Michael Scott: Why is she trying to take Stanley from us?
Stanley: I think it's because of my sales record.
Michael Scott: That could not possibly be it.

Michael Scott: How can I get you to stay?
Stanley: Money.
Michael Scott: Yeah. We all want money. But there is none in the budget. So, tell me why you're really leaving.
Stanley: Money.
Michael Scott: Mo' money, mo' problems, Stanley. You of all people should know that. Let me ask you this, if I were...
Stanley: Money.

Stanley: I wasn't really planning on leaving. All I wanted was a raise. How on Earth did Michael call my bluff? Is he some sort of secret genius?
[laughs]
Stanley: Sometimes I say crazy things.


"The Office: The Fight (#2.6)" (2005)
Angela: [as Angela, Stanley, Toby and Pam are forging Michael's signature] This is illegal.
Stanley Hudson: I don't care.

Stanley Hudson: I don't want to stay until 7:00 again this year.
Pam Beesly: I don't really have any control over that, Stanley.
[both look toward Michael's office]
Pam Beesly: Michael tends to procrastinate a bit whenever he has to do work. Time cards, he has to sign these every Friday. Purchase orders have to be approved at the end of every month. And expense reports, all he has to do is initial these at the end of every quarter. But once every year, it all falls on the same Friday. That's today. I call it the perfect storm.


"The Office: Sex Ed (#7.4)" (2010)
Andy Bernard: Okay, in that case, I will now show you how to put this condom on using...
[Stanely laughing]
Andy Bernard: ...this pencil.
Stanley Hudson: [laughs even harder] Oh, God!
Andy Bernard: What?
Oscar Martinez: Why would you choose a pencil, Andy?
Andy Bernard: Well, I'm not going to use my penis, Oscar. It's not exactly hard right now, anyway.
Meredith Palmer: Come on. Give it a rest, pencil
[bleep]
Andy Bernard: I'm doing this for *you*, Meredith!
Meredith Palmer: I didn't want it!
Andy Bernard: Well, didn't you? Why didn't... Does no one appreciate what I'm doing right now?
[throws pizza against the wall and storms out of the conference room]

Andy Bernard: Excuse me, everyone, can I have your attention, please?
Stanley Hudson: Not again.
Andy Bernard: What do you mean "again"?
Stanley Hudson: You're always asking for our attention.
Andy Bernard: Well, maybe like a year ago.
Stanley Hudson: Mmm. Seems recent.
Andy Bernard: No, that's...
Oscar Martinez: Andy, the reason it seems more recent is because many of us here have never stood up and asked for everyone's attention, and it seems like you've done it on several occasions.
Andy Bernard: Everyone, I've noticed that we've not been entirely kind to one of our own, due to stigmas and prejudices.
Phyllis Vance: Oh! When you got your new phone, that's when you asked for everyone's attention.
Stanley Hudson: World Cup. That's what I was thinking. You kept announcing scores.
Oscar Martinez: That's right.
Andy Bernard: It's the world's only international sport, so...


"The Office: Fun Run (#4.1)" (2007)

[ominous pause]
Michael Scott: And she is going to be okay.
Stanley Hudson: What is wrong with you? Why did you have to phrase it like that?

Michael Scott: [discussing rides to visit Meredith] All right, since I am the boss I will drive as well. Who wants shotgun?
Stanley Hudson: You can't be serious. You ran a woman over this morning.
Michael Scott: Everyone inside the car was *fine*, Stanley!


"The Office: Baby Shower (#5.3)" (2008)
Stanley Hudson: I do not like pregnant women in my workspace. They're always complaining. I have varicose veins, too. I have swollen ankles. I'm constantly hungry. Do you think my nipples don't get sore too? Do you think I don't need to know the fastest way to the hospital?

Andy Bernard: So Jan, tell my intended about the miracle of childbirth.
[Angela rolls her eyes]
Jan Levinson: Well actually, I uh, I had a tub birth. That was really, really quite amazing.
Angela Martin: You gave birth in a *tub*?
Jan Levinson: Yeah, it's... it's a really nice transition from womb to, to world, you know? Kinda like a big womb...
Kelly Kapoor: Umm, so you're in the tub with... everything?
Jan Levinson: Oh yeah, the afterbirth floats. Yeah.
[smiles]
Creed Bratton: Must be like the tide at Omaha Beach.
Jan Levinson: Oh no, it's actually really hygienic, Creed.
Creed Bratton: [shakes his head] Ugh...

[walks out]
Oscar Martinez: Me too.
[follows Stanley]

Kevin Malone: I don't know.
Pam Beesly: It's 'whom' when it's the object of the sentence and 'who' when it's the subject.
Phyllis Lapin: That sounds right.
Michael Scott: Well, it sounds right, but is it?
Stanley: How did Ryan use it, as an object?
Ryan Howard: As an object.
Kelly Kapoor: Ryan used *me* as an object.
Stanley: Is he right about that...?
Pam Beesly: How did he use it again?
Toby Flenderson: It was... Ryan wanted Michael, the subject, to explain the computer system, the object...
Michael Scott: Thank you!
Toby Flenderson: ...to whomever, meaning us, the indirect object... which is the correct usage of the word.
Michael Scott: No one asked you anything ever, so whomever's name is Toby, why don't you take a letter opener and stick it into your skull.


"The Office: Launch Party (#4.3)" (2007)
Kelly Kapoor: [after Michael reads out a memo] That's from Ryan? Does it mention if he's seeing anybody?

Michael Scott: Well, you know what? I didn't want to hear about it either, Stanley, but I did and now I can't stop picturing it. He leaves work, he's on his way home... Wham! His cappa is detated from his head.

Luke Cooper: Hey,
