Dwight Schrute: Shalom, I'd like to apply for a loan.

Pam Beesley: That's nice, Dwight.

Dwight Schrute: OK, do me. Something stereotypical so I can get it really quick.

Pam Beesley: OK, I like your food.

Dwight Schrute: Uh, Outback Steakhouse, I'm Australian, mate!

Michael Scott: Pam, come on, "I like your food," no, come on, stir the pot. Stir the melting pot, Pam! Let's do it, let's get ugly, let's get real.

Pam Beesley: OK, if I have to do this, based on stereotypes that are totally untrue, that I do not agree with, you would maybe not be a very good driver.

Dwight Schrute: [shocked] Aw man, am I a woman?

Michael Scott: [on videotape] Hi, I'm Michael Scott. I'm in charge of Dunder Mifflin Paper Products here in Scranton, Pennsylvania. But I'm also the founder of Diversity Tomorrow, because today is almost over. Abraham Lincoln once said that if you're a racist, I will attack you with the North, and those are the principles that I carry with me in the workplace.

Oscar: Both my parents were born in Mexico. And they moved to the United States a year before I was born. So I grew up in the United States. My parents were Mexican.

Michael Scott: Wow. Wow. That is... That is a great story. That's the American dream right there, right? Um, let me ask you, is there a term besides "Mexican" that you prefer? Something less offensive?

Mr. Brown: Now this is a simple acronym: H.E.R.O. At Diversity, we believe it's very easy to be a hero. All you need are: Honesty, Empathy, Respect, and Open-mindedness.

Dwight Schrute: Excuse me, I'm sorry, but that's not all it takes to be a hero.

Mr. Brown: Okay well, what is a hero to you?

Dwight Schrute: A hero kills people, people that wish him harm. A hero is part human and part supernatural. A hero is born out of a childhood trauma, or out of a disaster, and must be avenged.

Mr. Brown: Uh, okay, you're thinking of a superhero.

Toby Flenderson: Oh. Sorry.

Michael Scott: No. This is not a joke. What you said was offensive... and lame, so double offense. This is a place of welcoming, and... you should just get the hell out of here.
