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.

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.

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...
