Episode Quotes
Andy: What was up with Pam being all pushy and negative in there?
Jim: I think she just didn't want a crucifix cake.

Michael: It's like, a girl says she'll make out with you, but then her boyfriend is waiting around the corner with a pee-filled balloon.

Phyllis: You sound worried.
Dwight: And you have bad skin. Oh, look everyone, we're all making observations!



Cultural References
Andy: (to Jim) And you know what? I am here for you. Let me be your traveling pants.

Andy is referring to the book and film, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, written by Ann Brashares.

Michael: (to Dwight, on the phone) Yes, and hear me, Dwight, when I say I brought you into this world, and I can take you out. (hangs up phone) Bill Cosby.

Michael quotes a line from an old Bill Cosby comedy routine.

Dwight: Michael has been talking to my biggest client. Master and apprentice pitted against one another for the fate of the greater Scranton area paper market. So it's not exactly like Highlander, but still...

Highlander is a film from 1986 about a group of immortals battling to the death, to be the last immortal standing.
