Episode Quotes
Michael: Okay, here's what we're going to do. I'm going to instruct the kids about management and sales. Oscar will be in charge of accounting. Pam will be eye-candy. No, uh, also, because that is your alma mater. Darryl will hire some kids for the warehouse. We don't have to worry about internships with them, because they definitely ain't going to college.
Darryl: What college did you go to, Mike?
Michael: Let's go!

Dwight: Last time I checked, the American workday ends at five pm. You will all stay at your desks until that time. Or you will suffer the consequences.
Phyllis: What consequences?
Dwight: I will tell on you.

Michael: (to Justin) How you doing? Listen, I don't think that a handsome, funny, smart, funny-looking kid like you should limit himself. You could do whatever you want to do. You could be a classy janitor, or a cashier with dignity, or a... migraine worker. Maybe for you, paper should be more of a hobby.

Creed: (on the phone) Hiya Pumpkin. It's Creed. Say, we're gonna ditch this bitch. You in?
Angela: No.
Creed: You out?
Angela: (hangs up)
Creed: (to everyone else) Pumpkin's out. Let's go gang!



Cultural References
Kelly: Oh my God Darryl, you look like Barack Obama! Everybody, I'm dating Barack Obama!

Barack Obama is currently the leading candidate to become the nominee of the Democratic party for the presidential election in 2008.

Michael: Yeah, I'm trying to lure these kids into my booth, but uh, kids are very wary about being lured these days. Thank you, Dateline!

The show Dateline NBC often features a segment called "To Catch A Predator," on which they set up stings for child molesters who meet their underage victims over the internet.

Michael: Yes. And don't call me Shirley.

Michael is imitating a line from the 1980 film, Airplane!, that was uttered several times by Leslie Nielsen's character.



Episode References
Jim: Today I am meeting a potential client on the golf course, because Ryan put me on probation.

In the previous episode, "Did I Stutter?" Ryan reprimanded Jim for spending too much time goofing around with Pam.

Jim: And uh, it is not a good time for me to lose my job, since I have some pretty big long-term plans in my personal life with Pam that I'd like her parents to be psyched about.

Jim told Pam he is going to (eventually) ask her to marry him, in episode 4x10, "Chair Model."

Pam: (to Justin) There's some filing, restocking the supply shelves. Replacing the water jug, which nobody likes to do. Um, we... uh, eat a lot of cake!

They do indeed eat a lot of birthday cake, as was mentioned in episode 4x07, "Survivor Man." Jim, acting as manager, tried to consolidate all the birthdays and just get one cake, but that idea was not well-received in the office.
