5 Best Michael Scott Quotes

The 5 best Michael Scott quotes are funny, bizarre, and often cringe-worthy. As any fan of "The Office" already knows, the oblivious, inappropriate, self-proclaimed "World's Best Boss" can really make a statement.

  1. "Wikipedia is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject, so you know you are getting the best possible information." Just like Wikipedia, Michael Scott tries to sound like an authority on a subject, even when he has no discernible expertise whatsoever. Here is one of those Michael Scott quotes that illustrates how truly clueless he is.
  2. "You don’t call retarded people retards. It’s bad taste. You call your friends retards … when they’re acting retarded." This is just one of the many woefully tactless and offensive Michael Scott quotes.
  3. "I love inside jokes. I'd love to be a part of one someday." Poor Michael Scott. All he wants is to best friends with the cool guys in the office. No matter how awkward and abrasive he can be, you still have to occasionally feel bad for him.
  4. "Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy, both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me." This Michael Scott quote illustrates his unbearable need to be liked, and his incredibly poor management skills.
  5. "That's what she said." Come on, you knew this had to make the list. This is probably the most well-known and classic of all Michael Scott quotes, because he manages it interject it into almost any conversation. Probably the best use of this punch-line was in the episode "Product Recall." After an office disaster, Michael is attempting to delegate and urgently says, "No, I need two men on this! That's what she said! No time! But she did! No time!"
