Valentine's Day - The Office (Season 2, Episode 16)
Original Air Date: February 9, 2006
It's Valentine's Day and in short order a delivery guy brings a bundle of roses. They are for Phyllis from
her boyfriend Bob Vance.
Michael is headed to New York to do a presentation, for the new CFO, on the branch.
Since Jim broke up with Katie, he has no plans for Valentine's Day. So he's going to get a
card game going and win a lot of money.
Dwight returns to his desk where a package awaits him. He is very suspicious and thinks it is a prank
Jim is playing on him. Jim denys it and Dwight carefully opens the box. He pulls out a Valentine's Day card and
looks at Angela. Inside the box is a bobble head that looks like him. He is very proud of it and Angela
is glad even though no one else is to know.
Ryan and Kelly hooked up the night before. Ryan kissed her and now she thinks she has a boyfriend. And because
it's Valentine's Day Ryan now feels he has to do something for her.
More flowers arrive for Phyllis and Pam is disappointed. Meredith isn't bothered because she is "drinking soda".
Dwight finds Angela and tells her someone totally rocks for getting him his present. The best ever. She's happy
he liked it but in classic style denys knowing anything about it. She then tells Dwight that she hopes she gets something.
As she walks away, Dwight is scared. He had not gotten her anything yet and now knows he must.
Another delivery guy arrives carrying an almost life size teddy bear. It's for Phyllis and Pam's blood boils.
Nervous Dwight goes to Pam for advice about what to get his girlfriend.
Kelly and Jim are talking about the relationship between her and Ryan. She is going way overboard fast and Jim tells
her to just slow down and take it easy. Ryan comes in to get a soda.
Kelly - "Hey, So, Do you want to.. do something.. tonight.. or.."
(softly)"Ohh. No. Not while I'm here."
Kelly - "I mean it's Valentine's Day,
or whatever, but there's totally no pressure at all, of any kind, whatsoever,
Ryan - "I can't tonight. I have plans with my friends, so"
Ryan - "um"
Kelly - "that's totally cool, I completely
Ryan - "cool.. (uncomfortable pause) ok."
away. Jim and Kelly both sit there silently.
Phyllis gets yet another delivery and Pam almost can't contain herself.
Oscar then gets a delivery from his mother, flowers.
By this point, Meredith is past out on her desk.
Jim continues to advise Kelly on her relationship with Ryan but she isn't listening.
Angela returns to her desk to find a box. Inside the box is a key (to Dwight's house). She's happy.
To the camera Dwights says: "Women are like wolves. If you want a wolf, you have to trap it. You have to
snare it. And then you have to tame it. Keep it happy, care for it, feed it.
Lovingly, the way an animal deserves to be loved. And my animal deserves a lot
Roy comes to pick up Pam and she is pissed. Roy claims the day isn't over yet and her Valentine's Day gift is
waiting for her at home. The best sex of her life. Pam is not amused.
Best Funny Quotes From The Office - Valentine's Day
I really like Valentine’s Day in this office. It’s kinda like grade school. Everybody gives out little presents and stuff. Like last year, Jim gave me this card, with Dwight’s head on it, it was horrifying and funny and…
Delivery man enters with a bouquet of red roses. Pam stands up to look at card. Phyllis.
Would you sign here? Phyllis gets up from desk and walks over.
Roy and I are saving for the wedding, so I made him promise not to get me anything too big.
“Happy Valentine’s Day darling. Love Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration.”
Isn’t he sweet?
Alright Dwight, as you know I am heading to New York today. Dwight holds up passport. Doing a presentation on the branch to the new CFO.
And you want me to come with you.
Nope. The opposite of that.
I will stay here and run things on this end.
Question. Will you be seeing Jan when you’re in New York?
I probably will, why do you ask?
Well… It’s Valentine’s Day, and you guys, you know…
What is your problem?
This is a business trip. I would have to be a raving lunatic to try to talk to Jan about what happened between us. Her words, not mine. She sent me an email this morning. But, it is Valentine’s Day. It’s New York. City of Love.
Hey, Pam. You heart N.Y., right? You want me to pick you up anything?
The best present would be, you do a good job in front of the new CFO.
Dude, I’m gonna nail it. Me in New York? Oh, I own that city. Fuggedaboudit! See ya!
Well here we go. On our way to New York. New York, New York. City so nice they named it twice. Manhattan is the other name.
So I broke up with Katy and haven’t been dating anybody else, so this year I don’t have to worry about Valentine’s Day. It’s gonna be good. I invited a couple of friends over. We’re gonna play some cards and I’ll end up winning a lotta money. Because, they’re idiots. It’s gonna be great.
What’s this? What is this?
I dunno, it’s on your desk.
Yeah, but who put it here? And for what purpose?
It was there when I sat down.
opens box and reads card Happy Valentine’s Day. pulls out bobble head It’s me. I’m the bobble head. Yes! Angela smirks in background Ahh!
The meeting isn’t ’til three, but I always like to come to New York little bit early and hit some of my favorite hunts, like right here, is my favorite New York pizza joint. And I’m gonna go get me a New York slice. Michael walks toward Sbarro.
Hey Kelly. What’s up?
Nothing. Oh except, oh my God Jim. Last night, Ryan and I totally, finally hooked up. It was awesome.
OH, that’s great. I’m really happy for starts to walk away
And it was so funny ’cause we were at this bar with his friends and I was sitting next to him the whole night and he wasn’t making a move, so in my head I was like “Ryan, what’s taking you so long?” And then he kissed me. And I didn’t know what to say.
So I said, “Ryan, what took you so long?” And I just said that to him, can you believe that?
Oh my God, Jim, is that embarrassing? I’m embarrassed.
No, don’t be.
Oh, thank God, because I was nervous, Jim, you will not believe.
So nervous, but now — now I have a boyfriend.
Alright. Kelly squeals

I didn’t get anything for Valentine’s Day.
Oh, I bet you will before the day is over.

I would love to live in New York someday. It’s a big dream of mine. Work for corporate, with Jan. It’d be awesome. Go to Broadway shows, eat hot dogs. Scranton is great, but New York, is like Scranton on acid, no on speed, no on steroids. Michael sees it’s the end of a street. OK, umm, I think, that’s either the Hudson or the East, so we’re back, should be back this way. There’s a lotta pressure on me right now. It’s like Michael Jordan, in the NBA finals. Or, like Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf, and this presentation is desert storm and as soon as it’s over, we will not have to deal with those Iraqis anymore. Let’s do it.

Cool. Good, good, good. Give us some time to catch up, and… awkward silence
Pam. Hi, How ya doing? Good. Listen, uh may I speak with you… privately?
You can’t fire me, Dwight, just ’cause Michael’s not here.
No, Pam, Just. Just, tilts head away, towards another room
You need to get something for your girlfriend.
same time as Pam Girlfriend. Yes, and the reason I didn’t get anything for this particular person – who shall remain nameless – is that she’s not really the kind of person you’d think would be into Valentine’s Day. She’s kind of…
Ok, well, sometimes the gift is really about the gesture, you know, like what it means, instead of what it is.
You mean, like a ham?
No, not like a ham. It’s about doing something, so that the person knows that you really care about her.
Ok, I get it.
That you remember her.
Ok, shut up. I know exactly what to do. gets up and leaves
What about you, Craig, you lose anyone?
Oh man, Jan, called me in September and said “You gotta fire four people,” and I was just like, “What?” Ya know?
No, I just ignored her. She’s the worse.
She is our boss.
She ain’t my boss dude. I don’t work for that bitch.
Ay, Kay. Come on, you know, that’s not. Cool it.
What? You like Jan? How can you like Jan?
Maybe because she’s my girlfriend. starts retracting statement Was, or not my girlfriend. She’s… we hooked up and…
You hooked up with Jan?
You know, months ago, just once, It’s, just stupid. Just forget it,
Yeah, let’s change the subject.
I don’t know what he’s thinking, but I would just be so psyched if we just dated forever.
Take it slow. ‘Cause it seems like a lot of the time things like that need… Ryan walks in
to Ryan Cool. Hey, so… do you want to… do something tonight? Or…
under breath Oh, no, not while I’m here.
I mean, I know it’s Valentine’s Day, or whatever, but there’s totally no pressure at all, of any kind. What so ever. So…
I can’t tonight. I have plans with my friends.
OK, That’s cool. I completely understand.
Cool. Cool. OK.
Josh Porter, Stamford.
David to Josh and shakes hands
Nice to meet you.
And Michael Scott, Scranton.
Nice to meet you.
Ditto. to Jan How are you Jan?
Fine Michael. Thank you.
OK. So we are in the process of doing a complete review of the company’s financial strengths. All I’d like to do today is to…
Nervous, no I’m not nervous. Well, I guess I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little nervous. Umm, the new CFO is judging me on this too, and well, it is Michael, so. Yeah, I’m very nervous.
So with the twelve new local accounts, we had a total of four percent organic growth, which was just above our pre-year targets.
Thanks very much.
What is a business? Is it a collection of numbers and sales reports? Sure. But as you know, David and Jan, it is much more. plays video on screen. David and Jan have confused looks on their faces.
Life moves a little slower in Scranton, Pennsylvania. And that’s the way we like it. Because at Dunder Mifflin Scranton, we’re not just in the paper business, we’re in the people business. Let’s meet some of the folks that make the Scranton branch so special. This is Stanley Hudson, one of our talented salesman. An African-American father of two, Stanley’s dedication is no doubt one of the hallmark’s of the foundation of the business we’re hoping to build our bases on.
Yeah, I shot a bunch of footage around the office, edited it together on my Mac. I was thinking of entering it into some festivals. Probably won’t. You know, not what this is about.
And finally, Pam Beesly. Look at her. Look how cute. Not bad at all. As the receptionist, Pam is truly the gateway to our world. Well, I hope this gave you a little taste of what life is like here at Dunder Mifflin, Scranton. What it’s like to walk a mile in Oscar’s shoes. Or try on Phyllis’ pants. Maybe even one of Angela’s famous brownies. And you’ll know, that you’re home.
Wow. OK, OK, thank you Michael, that was great.
Yes, thank you.
But, for right now what, I would really like to know about is the branch’s performance, so do you have that information as well?
Yes, absolutely David. Get that for you. I umm… hands over report
with flowers Can you sign?
delivering plant to Oscar’s desk Oscar.
Nothing for me?
walks away Join the club.
Whose it from? to Oscar
My mom. puts card in pocket
It’s frustrating, because we’d be so perfect together.
You know what? Here’s the deal, Kelly. It would be really nice if he was in to you, right? It’d be great, but he isn’t.
Yeah, it would be so great if he was.
Well, he’s not, though. So you just gotta suck it up. You just gotta move on. Try to have some fun. Come to my poker game tonight.
Okay, cool. Is it okay if I invite Ryan? Jim leaves
And that about does it, thank you.
OK. looks toward Craig Craig,
Yeah. Here’s the deal. I did not understand this was supposed to be a full on… like report or whatnot.
Um, I’m sorry, what did you think financial presentation meant?
I was under the impression this was, more of like… a meet and greet type deal.
So, does that mean you don’t have the numbers on your branch?
That is correct, yes.
Craig, you realize that we’re trying to decide whether if drastic steps need to be taken?
Look, I’m sorry, I didn’t know.
Well, the point is, is that doesn’t exactly bode well for your branch.
Oh man, you know what? Michael made that stupid movie, he doesn’t get into any trouble? Maybe I should have slept with you, too. David looks at Jan, who glares at Michael.
Oh, ok. Alright.
NO, NO I’m not, I’m not, I just… I just don’t know what to do anymore, Michael. I mean, we’re all gonna get fired.
No you’re not.
Yeah, Michael – the CFO thinks that we slept together. Do you understand, people get fired for much less? And I just scratches head can’t believe that you told everybody and we didn’t even sleep together.
Technically, we fell asleep in the same bed. So…
Oh, God. Michael. It was months ago. It was once, It’s over. Do you understand?
Yes. I’m sorry. I will fix this. I’ll talk to him. I’ll talk to David.
Surely, you cannot be serious?
I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley. Airplane.
Women are like wolves. If you want a wolf, you have to trap it. You have to snare it. And then you have to tame it. Keep it happy. Care for it. Feed it. Lovingly, the way an animal deserves to be loved. And my animal deserves a lot of loving.
You almost ready to go?
I guess, yeah.
Nothing, it’s just I had to sit here all day, while Phyllis got like an entire garden delivered to her.
What, you’re mad at me?
I mean, I know that we said no big gifts, but I was kind of hoping you’d get me something for Valentine’s Day.
Well, Valentine’s Day isn’t over. Let’s get you home and you are gonna get the best sex of you life.
You understand this is a very serious situation.
No no no no no, yes I, OK, well, alright, here’s the deal. It’s my fault. This is, this is totally on me. Before you guys came in, I was talking to the guys. We were all chatting and I made a joke, a really dumb joke and Craig the idiot took it seriously. Jan looks at Michael
You made a joke?
I did, it was stupid. And Craig, you saw him, he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. Although he is a tool. David grins
Well I don’t need to explain to you that even a joke about sexual relations with your boss…
I know. It was borderline at best and… And Jan is a fantastic executive and has all the integrity in the world and um, I’m really sorry. It will never happen again.
Uh, that’s fine. Let’s just forget it.
Good. Michael leaves office
Yeah. Alright, Beesly, Hey, Happy Valentine’s Day.
Bye. Jim leaves
Goodnight Pam. Leaves with oversized bear on back.
Oh, Michael. Thank you again for that, really. It was very nice.
Oh, no big deal. Really. Sorry again.
Oh, no, it’s OK. Puts hand in way of elevator door to stop from closing. So, uh, Happy valentine’s Day.
Yeah, Happy Valentine’s Day. Jan turns and then kisses Michael. Michael looks and sees camera, Jan turns and sees camera, too. Elevator door closes.
Oy vey… schmear. Points at Fiddler on the Roof playing at Minskoff Theatre and does a dance.
