Goofs

When Pam, Dwight, and David are on the speaker phone in the conference room with the marketing people in New York, Michael rushes in and is irate saying that it was his idea for giving a discount to companies who get a "Golden Ticket," not Dwight's. As Michael announces that it was his idea and yelling at Dwight, David leans in to the phone and says loudly, "We're gonna call you back, guys" to the marketing people. But David, nor anyone else in the room, hangs up the phone. See more »

Quotes

Michael Scott: I am just a net that traps all of your crappy subconscious ideas and adds a little bit of my own childhood memories and whimsy, so...
Jim Halpert: [interrupting] Okay, well, I lost a ton of money today. And I have a mortgage, so I'm a little pissed, too.
Michael Scott: Thank you. Jim is with me.
Jim Halpert: Absolutely not. I'm mad at you.
Michael Scott: Well, you know what, Jim, it is not my fault that you bought a house to impress Pam. That is why carnations exist.
Creed Bratton: That's not why.
