That was funny. Same episode, funny, too:Ryan: What I really want, honestly, Michael is for you to know it so that you can communicate it to the people here, to your clients, whomever.Michael Scott: Oh okay.Ryan: What?Michael Scott: It's whoever, not whomever.Ryan: It's whomever.Michael Scott: No, whomever is never acutally right.Jim Halpert: Nope, sometimes it's right.Creed: Michael is right. It's a made up word used to trick students-Andy: No. Actually, whomever is the formal version of the word--Oscar: Obviously it's a real word- but I don't know how to use it correctly.Michael Scott: [to camera] Not a native speaker.Kevin: I know what's right. But I'm not gonna say. Because you're all jerks who didn't come see my band last night.Ryan: Do you really know which one is correct?Kevin: I don't know.Pam Beesly: It's whom when it's the object of the sentence and who when as the subject.Phyllis: That sounds right.Michael Scott: Well it sounds right but is it?Stanley: How did Ryan use it, as an object?Ryan: As an object.Kelly: Ryan used me as an object.Oscar: Is he right about that--Pam Beesly: How did he use it again?Toby: It was, Ryan wanted Michael, the subject, to explain the computer system, the object--Michael Scott: Thank you!Toby: ...to whomever, meaning us, the indirect object. Which is the, the correct usage of the word.Michael Scott: No one, uh asked you anything ever so whomever's name is Toby, why don't you take a letter opener and stick it in your skull?
That was one of their best shows. Just when I thought I was getting away from TV I am addicted to 30 Rock and The Office.
My husband likes 30 Rock and tivo'd it this past week and asked me to watch it bc he knew I would like it. I watched, as I complained "I can't stand Alec Baldwin" but 5 minutes into the story I found myself laughing out loud-- the cookie jar collector! Investigating himself! The investigator pulling for another gym membership! The fat actress who lost her appetite!
you've all left me in the dust - not familiar with either show. apparently I don't get very good reception in this cave in which I live with whomever.
LOL! Great dialogue!I missed the Office this week because I had to work. Figures I missed a good one. * sigh *Michael is such an idiot. My Manager at my last job couldn't even watch the show...the stuff Michael did just made him cringe so much he couldn't enjoy the show. (For the record, my Manager was one of the good guys...he was NOT a Michael!):-)
Uncle Jim, if you like absurd humor, you will like these shows. And don't listen to Adoro - Michael is the best manager ever. LOL!And SF - this show will make you appreciate Alec Baldwin - he is very funny - not like his evil ex-wife. (Yes, LOL! I like her too.)
My husband took me to see the Devil Wears Prada because of my years in advert'g & in the magazine publishing industry—dealing w/NY consumer mag publishers ... the movie brought back memories....as does the Office series ... the British version is a hoot ... haven't seen the American ...
If I were here on Saturday, I would have suggested that PUSHING UP DAISIES is the funiest show on TV this season.
Oh, my word.That Office was funny - I loved them checking into the "Irrigation Room."And 30 ROCK???Holy cow, that's a great show. "I like the upside-down WOW."Hoooey, I laughed.
Richie - Pushing Daaisies is good - I love the way it is filmed.
