Episode Quotes
Jim: So I broke up with Katy, and I haven't been dating anybody else, so this year I don't have to worry about Valentine's Day. It's gonna be good. I invited a couple friends over. We're gonna play some cards. And I'll end up winning a lot of money because... they're idiots. It's gonna be great.

Dwight: Question, will you be seeing Jan while you are in New York?
Michael: I probably will, why do you ask?
Dwight: Well, it’s Valentines Day and you guys, you know...
Michael: Yeah?
Dwight: ...screwed.
Michael: What is your problem?!?

Kelly: It's frustrating, because we'd be so perfect together.
Jim: You know what, here's the deal Kelly. It would be really nice, if he was into you. Right? It would be great. But he isn't.
Kelly: Yeah, it would be so great if he was-
Jim: Well he's not though! So you just gotta suck it up. Just gotta move on, try to have some fun. Come to my poker game tonight.
Kelly: Okay, cool. Is it okay if I invite Ryan?
(Jim sighs and walks away)

Michael: What it's like to walk a mile in Oscar's shoes, or try on Phyllis' pants...

Kelly: I mean I just said it to him. Can you believe that?
Jim: Wow.
Kelly: Oh my God, Jim, is that embarrassing? I’m embarrassed.
Jim: No don’t be.
Kelly: Oh thank God. Because I was nervous Jim, you will not believe. I was so nervous.
Jim: I bet.
Kelly: But now... now I have a boyfriend.



Episode Goofs
When Ryan comes in to get a soda, you can hear him put the change in the machine, but he gets no soda.

When Dwight is talking to Angela about getting the best Valentines Day present ever, the scene was cut when the camera angles changes. At one point Dwight was looking at a paper from a folder, holding it just outside of the folder with his right hand. The shot cuts to another angle and Dwight’s hand is to his side and the paper is in the folder.



Cultural References
Michael: Here it is. Heart of New York City. Times Square. Named for the good times you have when you’re in it.

Actually, Times Square was named for the building that formerly belonged to the New York Times, which was located in the center of the square.

Visual: "A Michael Scott Joint"

There's a credit note at the end of Michael's film that says, "A Michael Scott Joint." Michael is copying director Spike Lee, and his "A Spike Lee Joint" labels. Michael's end credit of "Great Scott Films International," which is what he's named his imaginary production company, shows images of comedians Robin Williams and Steve Martin on it.

Michael: Dude, I’m going to nail it. Me in New York? Oh, I own that city. Fuggetaboutit!

Michael is using a common phrase used by the characters on the HBO show The Sopranos. Michael says this because he's in New York, but the show takes place mostly in New Jersey.

Michael: Great places to eat, we have Bubba Gump Shrimp...

This is a quick reference to the shrimp company, Bubba Gump, from the film Forrest Gump.
