the office

is the best show ever.

every single scene in the british version is classic and memorable.

the us version is also tremendous, and season two has been nothing short of brilliant.

please discuss, and add quotes. now.

Haven't seen the US one, but I have the complete British series on DVD. The 2nd season is better than the first, IMO.

I have only watched on episode of the US version. I will have to wait for the dvd set to watch it.

I love the English version though.

Every once and again, a call will come through on my mobile from a friend of mine. Each time, she goes:

"You're a cock!"

and hangs up.

Classic.

The Office

Just wait till the Inter-Brits see this and start bashing the US version!

“We go there every Wednesday night, and it’s a fun place, but it’s full of loose women. My own problem with that is venereal disease, which is disabilitating right, especially for a soldier. And it’s irresponsible to the rest of your unit as well, right. You’ve been under attack for days, there’s a soldier down, he’s wounded, gangrene’s setting in, ‘who’s used all the penicillin?’ ‘Oh, Mark Paxon sir, he’s got knobrot of some tart.’”
Gareth (Series 1 Episode 5)

“There are limits to my comedy. There are things that I’ll never laugh at. The handicapped. Because there’s nothing funny about them. Or any deformity. It’s like when you see someone look at a little handicapped and go ‘ooh, look at him, he’s not able-bodied. I am, I’m prejudiced.’ Yeah, well, at least the little handicapped fella is able-minded. Unless he’s not, it’s difficult to tell with the wheelchair ones.”

I love the Brit version

Tim to Gareth: "Did you catch that movie last night, Gaylord Says No?"
Gareth: "No."


The American version is on TV over here I think though I haven't got around to watching it yet.

I love both versions but my favorite one is the British one. Gareth and David make me laugh way too hard for my own good. My favorite moments from the British one are when Tim puts the dildo in David's office and he can't turn it off, and the picture below



Various quotes below:

areth: In this room I have special...
Tim: ... needs?
Gareth: No, in this room I am a special...
Tim: ... needs child?
Gareth: No, and that's not even funny.

Gareth: Condoms come in all different flavours nowadays. There's strawberry and curry and that. Do you like curry?

Rowan: Gareth, quick trust exercise, ultimate fantasy?
Gareth: Hmm?
David Brent: We're just doing the ultimate fantasy, we're all doing it.
Gareth: Two lesbians probably, sisters. I'm just watching.
Rowan: OK. Erm. Tim? Do you have one?
Tim: I'd never thought I'd say this, but can I hear more from Gareth please?

Gareth: He knows I don't like jelly... I don't trust the way it moves.

"Gareth Keenan Investigates"

Gareth: Hands up, who trusts me?

"Free love on the free love freeway..."

And I love the entire bit with Gareth, Tim, and stapler being dropped out of the window
