Recap and Quotes from The Office Episode "Mafia"

The Office, "Mafia": Best Lines of the Night

After last week's wedding extravaganza on The Office, we come back to a Dunder Mifflin minus Jim and Pam. With the two lovebirds on their honeymoon, the focus shifts to Michael, who once again gets himself into a pickle with a guy — who he thinks — is affiliated with the mafia. I always love Andy, Dwight, and Michael banter, and this week's episode is full of it.

Debate the events of the night with The Office! group in the BuzzSugar Community, and then check out my favorite lines of the evening when you read more.

    "Jim is gone on his honeymoon, so I started opening his office to fart in."—Kevin
    Kevin is so creepy, it's hilarious. First he takes over Jim's desk while Jim's gone — then his identity. I love his conversation with the credit card company where he tried to convince them to let the "criminal" (meaning Jim) continue to spend the money.
  • "Criminals are like raccoons. You give them a taste of cat food, and they'll be back for the whole cat."—Dwight
    I really wish they could string out this mafia storyline a bit longer, just so I can watch Andy and Dwight strategize. My favorite part is when Andy dresses up as a car mechanic (Pat!) with a tire iron — "It's metal, so I can hit somebody with it." Gotta love Pat.
  • "I wouldn't last in jail, Oscar, I'm not like you. You don't know about jail? You would love jail."—Kevin
    Ha! I know it's totally un-PC, but I think this line is hilarious. Oscar definitely puts up with way too many gay jokes.
  • "I think I'm in trouble with the mob. Or a major insurance carrier."—Michael
    Michael's powers of perception have no bounds, as usual.
  • "If there's one thing I hate more than the mafia, it's a liar. I wish the mafia would go out and kill all the liars and then bury them in my yard." — Michael
    Michael goes on a major power trip after making the "mob" back down. Not like Michael needs a power trip, but oh well...Hopefully, he won't take it out too much on the rest of the office next week.

So what'd you think of the episode? I'll admit that I sort of missed Jim and Pam, and I could always use a little more Kelly.
