  • Michael: Dinkin' flicka.
  • Pam: Listen, Jim.
  • Darryl: Mike, I am not having fire-eaters in a paper warehouse.
  • Jim: Pam, these are people that have never given up on their dreams, and I have great respect for that. And they're all probably very bad, and that'll make me feel better for not having dreams!
  • Jim: I'm really sorry if that's weird for you to hear, but I needed you to hear it. Probably not good timing, I know that, I just -- I just needed you to know. Once.
