Episode Quotes
Michael: Yes, um, Jim. Today is a very difficult day for a lot of people in this office.
Jim: Oh, I'm sorry.
Michael: Yeah, and the sexy looks between you and Pam... the general sexiness, the flowers, it's creating a bit of a hostile work environment.

Michael: (to Jim) So suck it. (to everyone else) Hey everybody, I just invited Jim to suck it.

Dwight: I train my major blood vessels to retract into my body on command. Also, I can retract my penis up into itself.

Phlebotomist: Just relax.
Michael: Yup, I'm good. Whew. Wow, I feel like a human juicebox. Hawaiian blood punch.
Blood Girl: Oh, that's gross.
Michael: Type O-cean Spray!

Bob Vance: I honestly don't know how you can work with that jackass, that other jackass, and that new jackass.
Phyllis: He's talking about Michael, Dwight, and Andy.
Jim: Oh yeah, I understood.

Kevin: (to Lynn) Hey, I'm sorry we did not have a chance to talk more. I get very nervous talking to pretty girls. Seriously, feel how sweaty my hand is.



Cultural References
Jim: (sticks out his thumbs) Aaayyyy!

Jim and Michael and Dwight imitate Fonzie, a character from the show Happy Days.

Michael: (in a Mexican accent) Relationships? We don't need no stinking relationships.

Michael is misquoting a line from the 1948 film, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, starring Humphrey Bogart.

Kevin: At the Circle Drive-In they show old movies. It's really cool.

The Circle Drive-In is located in Dickson City, Pennsylvania, about 4 miles north of Scranton.

Kelly: This is like a modern day Enchanted, it's like a fairy tale.

Enchanted (2007) is a fairy-tale film that was partially animated, part live-action.



Episode References
Michael: All right, who's next? Where's Andy?
Oscar: He's on one of his honeymoons.
Michael: What?
Oscar: He made non-refundable deposits on his honeymoons, so he's just knocking them off one at a time. I think today he's hot air ballooning and later he's got a couple's massage.

In the Season Five premiere, "Weight Loss," Andy made non-refundable deposits on several different honeymoon options, hoping to find something that would please Angela.

Kelly: This is like a modern day Enchanted...

The film Enchanted starred Amy Adams, who guest starred in episode 1x06, "Hot Girl."
