The Dundies - The Office (Season 2, Episode 1)
Original Air Date: September 20, 2005
It's time for the 2005 Dundie Awards. The employees hate it but it gives Michael a chance to emcee the
event and promote morale amoung the troops. Pam is asked to compile highlights of past Dundie Awards.
Dwight learns of a rumor that there is demeaning graffiti mentioning Michael on the wall in the women's
bathroom. He goes to investigate without luck.
Meanwhile, Michael has been expecting that Corporate will pick up the tab for the Dundies event. However,
Jan let's Michael know that he will be picking up the bill. Michael is stressed.
While Pam contemplates her relationship with Roy, Michael asks Jim if it would be funny to award Pam "the longest
engagement award for the 3rd year in a row". Jim discourages this by telling Michael it looks lazy. Michael
is further stressed.
As if the episode wasn't funny enough, Dwight eventually sneaks into the women's restroom and gets a look
at the writing on the wall. He then comes out and announces to the office that "the women should lose their
right to have a toilet for abuse of the privilege.
So on the Dundie Awards...Michael opens the show with his version on OPP by Naughty by Nature which is DJ'd
by Dwight. The awards barely get started when Roy decides he doesn't want to stay. This causes him and Pam to
fight. He leaves and she sits with will Jim sucking down cocktails.
Pam, who now is very drunk, gets a sour look on her face thinking she is about to get her "longest engagement"
award, however, Michael comes through and awards her the "whitest tennis shoes award". So excited about the
award Pam gives a brief acceptance speech. When she goes back to her table, she gives Jim a big hug and kisses
him on the lips. (Their first kiss).
Jim is over joyed and declares it The Best Dundies Ever. Pam, because she's plasterd, falls out of her chair
while Jim is speaking to the camera. Dwight tries to give her CPR.
The Chili's manager is very upset with how wasted Pam is and she is no longer welcome in any Chili's again. Harsh!

Best Funny Quotes From The Office - The Dundies
Tonight is the Dundies, the annual employee awards night here at Dunder Mifflin. holds up a trophy of a business man And this is everybody’s favorite day. Everybody looks forward to it, because, you know, a lot of the people here don’t get trophies, very often. Like Meredith or Kevin, I mean, who’s gonna give Kevin an award? Dunkin’ Donuts? Plus, bonus, it’s really, really funny. So I, you know, an employee will go home, and he’ll tell his neighbor, “Hey, did you get an award?” And the neighbor will say, “No man. I mean, I slave all day and nobody notices me.” Next thing you know, employee smells something terrible coming from neighbor’s house. Neighbor’s hanged himself due to lack of recognition. So…

Oh, that’s a good idea.
Mine are at home in a display case above my bed.
Gyaaah. T.M.I. T.M.I my friends.
T.M.I.? Too much information. Ah, it’s just easier to say T.M.I. I used to say “Don’t go there” but that’s… lame.
And here we have Stanley the Manly. Now Stanley is a Dundie all-star, aren’t you Stan? Why don’t you, ah, show them some of your bling.
I don’t know where they are, I think I threw them out.
Oh, no you di-int.
I think I did.
W-why did you…
Say, we got to order some more apa-teezers this time. We ran out last year, remember?
Yes we should. I… you know what? I wanted one of those skillets of cheese, but when I got off stage, turns to Kevin someone had eaten all of them.
in video To Oscar Martinez it’s the “Show Me the Money” award! Yeah!
Michael has taped every Dundies awards and now, he’s making me look through hours of footage to find highlights.

So, what’s the joke? You’re not perfect either.
We’re not laughing at you, Dwight.
So who are we laughing at?
Um, just something somebody wrote.
Who? Dave Barry?
laughing No. No, just something that was written in the ladies’ room wall.
What is it? Who wrote it?
Um, it’s kind of private.
whispering It’s about Michael.
That is defacement of company property. So you better tell me. Kelly, if you tell me, you’ll be punished less.
Okay, now I’m laughing at you.

on speaker phone It’s a, it’s, it’s a two and a half hour drive from New York, Michael.
Well, you could take the bus. You could work on the way here. Sleep on the way home.
Wuh… Come on, Jan. This is important. I mean, this is, this is, validation to my employees here that you and corporate approve of this. So…
No, we don’t approve of this Michael. I mean, y-you only had the budget for one office party a year, so… we’re not paying for this.
to camera Could you…?
Are you there Michael?
Yeah, I’m here, I just wanted to, uh, talk to you for a second about that.
Um, what, ah, what is, I mean…
…come on, Jan!
You’re dropping an A-Bomb on me here.
Really? I’m dropping an atomic bomb on you?
Well, yeah, I mean, what is…
You already had a party on May 5th for no reason.
No reason?! It was the 05 05 05 party…
And you had a luau….
…it happens once every billion years.
And a tsunami relief fundraiser which somehow lost a lot of money.
Okay, no, that was a FUN raiser. I think I made that very clear in the fliers, fun, F-U-N.
Okay, well, I don’t understand why anyone would have a tsunami FUN raiser, Michael. I mean, that doesn’t even make sense.
Well, I think a lot of people were very affected by the footage.
This is a little character I like to do places a green turban with a yellow feather on his head, it is, uh, loosely based on Karnack, one of Carson’s classic characters. puts an envelope to his head Here we go. The PLO, the IRA, and the hot dog stand behind the warehouse. tears open envelope and pulls out card “Name three businesses that have a better health care plans than Dunder Mifflin.” Here’s the problem. There’s no open bar because of Jan and it’s the reason why comedy clubs have a two drink minimum. It’ll be fine, I just…wish people were going to be drunk.
Dwight, get out of here!!
No, no, no, no…
What were you doing in the ladies room?!
…no, no, no, no, it’s not what you think.
Why were you peering over the stalls?!
No, why were you in there?!
You are a pervert!

in video The Dundie award for “Longest Engagement” goes to Pam Beesley.
Pam, everybody! starts clapping
Whoooo! When is that girl gonna get married? That’s what I have to say. Ah, Roy’s accepting.
on video Yes.
on video Thank you Roy. Are there any words you’d like to say, on Pam’s behalf?
on video Ah, w-we’ll see you next year.
on video Yeah, oh, hope not! Oh God!
I’m not changing that, it’s the best one.
No, it’s hilarious, you’re right. I just think, um, “world’s longest engagement”, um, we’re all expecting it, you know?
That’s why it’s funny. Every year that Roy and Pam don’t get married, it gets funnier.
Well I think if you use the same jokes it just comes across as lazy.
Oh, taking it to heart lazy. Uh huh.
Excuse me, everyone, could I have your attention please. I just wanted to say that the women in this office are terrible. Especially the ones who wrote that stuff about Michael on the bathroom wall. Having a bathroom is a privilege. It is called a ladies room for a reason. And if you cannot behave like ladies, well then you are not going to have a bathroom.
You’re taking away our bathroom?
We are going to have two men’s rooms.
But where would we…go?
Be prepared to hold folks Michael comes out of his office From 9 am to…
…Dwight is banning us from our bathroom.
Okay, well, that’s just ridiculous, so just don’t, I-I don’t have time for this right now.
Nnnnno, there needs to be repercussions…
Just don’t, don’t talk-
…for people’s behavior.
Just STAP IT YAP IT!!!!
Okay, look, I know there have been a lot of rumors flying around about the Dundies this year. How there is no money, and how there is no food, and how the jokes are really bad, but WHAT THE HELL EVERYBODY!? I mean, God. The Dundies are about the best, in every, one of us. Can’t you see that? I mean, okay, we can do better. so, tonight, for the first time, we are inviting all of your friends and family to attend the awards with us.
