Season 4, "Did I Stutter"
It takes a lot to make us side with Michael, but Stanley manages to make it happen.
Season 1, "Pilot"
How does Jim get Dwight's stapler to suspend itself perfectly in the center of the gelatin? You've got to admire dedication to the craft.
Season 3, "Product Recall"
"Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica." Stop laughing; as Dwight reminds us, "Identity theft is not a joke!"
Season 2, "Casino Night
Just as Jim's bare-all confession of love to Pam (and the tears that follow) lays us low, their unexpected (incredibly hot) kiss a few minutes later has us soaring.
Season 5, "Weight Loss"
We knew he had the ring. She knew it was coming. So when Jim takes a knee at an interstate gas station in the rain, why does it take our breath away?
Season 5, "Company Picnic"
Who needs to hear the actual words when we can see Pam and Jim's faces upon hearing the unexpected news - as well as his happy and shaky voice when he tells Dwight to "send in the subs"?
Season 6, "Niagara"
We never want to hear Chris Brown's "Forever" ever again... unless we're watching the procession that puts a perfect cap on Pam and Jim's calamity-filled wedding weekend.
Season 7, "Goodbye, Michael"
We can't pick one individual adieu from all of Michael's parting shots, so let's call this whole episode one big moment - and a fitting farewell to the World's Best Boss.
Season 2, "The Injury"
Dwight was nice. And it was weird.
Season 1, "Diversity Day"
Kelly is smarter, Michael is meaner... and it's still funny (and completely un-PC).
Season 4, "Fun Run"
Michael's "carbo-loading" choice of fettuccine alfredo comes back to haunt him - but we'll spare you the photo of the actual moment.
Season 3, "The Merger"
Dunder Mifflin's Stamford employees - including Tony, who's totally humiliated by Michael's team-building activity - start dropping like flies. Scranton: Only the strong survive.
Season 3, "Gay Witch Hunt"
Michael goes out of his way to prove he's cool with Oscar's sexuality. (Spoiler alert: He's not.)
Season 7, "Threat Level Midnight"
In Pam's words: "We thought it was a comedy. Everything pointed to it being a comedy." Eleven years in the making, Michael's masterpiece was everything we hoped it would be.
Season 7, "Andy's Play"
Though the cellphone bit was funny, our favorite moment came when the Dunder Mifflin gang's shared wine bottle wound up noisily rolling around the community theater's floor.
We'll never look at our George Foreman Grill the same way again.
Season 5, "Weight Loss"
Newbie Holly draws a conclusion about Kevin many of us came to long ago.
Season 4, "Money"
With relationship woes and financial difficulty weighing on him, Michael takes Creed's advice literally. (Thank goodness Oscar was there to set him straight.)
Season 2, "The Dundies"
From Michael's song parodies to a drunken Pam falling off her stool and getting banned from Chili's for life, the Dunder Mifflin awards ceremony deserves a trophy of its own.
Season 2, "Office Olympics"
Lochte/Phelps pales in comparison to Kevin/Phyllis, at least when it comes to Flonkerton.
Season 4, "Local Ad"
"The people person's paper people..."
Season 7, "Garage Sale"
Michael's proposal to his true love was just like the man himself: sweet, almost a failure and liable to do harm to innocent bystanders.
Season 4, "Night Out"
Because any night's a good night that ends with Dwight, Michael and Ryan in bed together.
Season 8, "Fundraiser"
We'll save you the trouble, Nellie: There's no dainty way to eat a taco. But we love you for trying.
Season 8, "Free Family Portrait Studio"
David, we've missed you! Robert, we'll... see you later!
