Free Family Portrait Studio - The Office (Season 8, Episode 1)
Dwight offers free family portraits in the office, and many members of the office take advantage of the opportunity, including Creed with his very elderly parents, Toby with his teenaged daughter
Sasha, Meredith with her teenaged son, Kelly with Ravi, a desperate Ryan holding up various signs to try to win back Kelly's affection yet again, and Pam with a reluctant Jim and their children
Cecelia and Philip. Senator Robert Lipton later comes by with his and Angela son Philip to also get a family portrait. Jim suspects that Dwight's motive for giving away family portraits was
to get revenge on Jim for a prank involving a fake Velcro suit, but Dwight's real motive was to try to get some of Philip Lipton's DNA to run a test to determine who Philip's actual father is.
Angela is very much against this idea and tries to ensure that Dwight does not get the opportunity. After taking the pictures, Robert notices that Philip's diaper is full, so he goes
to change him. After doing so Dwight goes into the bathroom to retrieve the diaper, but Angela chases after him as he makes a break for the hospital to run the DNA test. Dwight and Angela
then take part in a high-speed car chase until Dwight calls his cousin Mose (Michael Schur) to take her off his trail with a duplicate Trans Am. Angela later finds him in the hospital waiting
area, where he confirms he is going to be there for the entire 72-hour waiting period for the DNA results. After she sits down, holding his hand, Dwight begins kissing her and Angela
briefly demurs before passionately kissing him in return.
Andy comes into the office, wearing shabby clothing, and walks straight into manager Nellie's office and pleads for a job. She eventually caves and makes him janitor for the day. Later, Andy
admits in a talking head interview that he has actually convinced former CFO David Wallace to buy Dunder Mifflin from Sabre and then make him the regional manager yet again; Andy is wearing
the shabby clothing and making himself smell of alcohol in order to make everyone believe that he is doing poorly, and does embarrassing things such as spilling soup on himself throughout the
day, wanting a "delicious moment" when he goes from janitor to regional manager. Erin, secretly aware of the plan, becomes concerned, unsure if Andy will be able to recover from this image
even after he becomes manager.
Andy becomes very dependent on David arriving at the office until David calls him to say that he cannot make it until the next Friday. Andy then announces
the plan and upon hearing this everyone, even Erin, assumes that Andy's conversations with David are hallucinations because none of them have seen Andy talking with David. However,
David surprisingly shows up to the office and assures everyone that he is indeed buying Dunder Mifflin from Sabre with the $20 million that he got from selling a toy-vacuum invention
called "Suck-it" to the United States Military. Andy goes through with his "delicious moment" plan, but no one seems to take much care, as they are more interested in the news of
ownership, ruining Andy's moment. David also reveals that Jo Bennett is planning on liquidating the rest of Sabre. Upon hearing this news, Sabre CEO Robert California approaches David
in an oddly excitable tone, introducing himself as "Bob Kazamakis" and takes him to the conference room to negotiate.
When Andy is reinstated as manager, he relishes the "delicious moment" he can have when he fires Nellie, but she begs him by reciting Shakespeare's quality of mercy quote from
The Merchant of Venice. Frustrated that he cannot have his moment, but taking pity on her, Andy gives Nellie a new job as special projects manager. Robert later tells the office that he will
be leaving for the next three years and going to "help" undereducated high school gymnasts, mostly Eastern European, with matching funds of one million dollars, which he convinces David
to donate, disgusting the rest of the office. He then exits the office once and for all by giving Andy a kiss, possibly as a symbol of his power being regained, putting his arm around
Andy and declaring to the office that "It's been a great year."
Former warehouse workers and lottery winners Calvin and Hide approach Darryl asking for their jobs back as they made a bad investment in an energy drink for Asian homosexuals (which Robert
is later seen drinking, and complains about the "coconut" flavor in the "coconut penis"). Darryl accepts them back and shows them around the warehouse and introduces them to new foreman Val.
Val's boyfriend, Brandon, is also there with her and notices the blatant compliments that Darryl gives to Val. Brandon then tells Darryl off which he responds to by just simply walking
away. Later, Darryl and his daughter, Jada, are taking pictures at the family portrait studio; Val joins them and holds Darryl's hand.
At the end of the episode, Robert Lipton walks out of the building with Philip and he notices Oscar. Robert asks why Oscar did not call after the fundraiser and heavily hints at his attraction
to Oscar, which Oscar has repeatedly suggested to be the case. Oscar appears taken aback, but flattered and tempted.
Best Funny Quotes From The Office - Free Family Portrait Studio
to webcam Hello. My name’s Oscar. I’m an accountant in Scranton, Pennsylvania and I’m gay. And I’m here to tell you that yes- it does get better. When I was younger, um-
What’s he doing?
He’s searching out younger gays.
No, it’s just a way to tell young people, no matter how hard it gets for them, there’s a brighter future ahead.
…with you. chuckles
No matter how hard it gets for you, eh- Kelly, seriously, I-
Just keep chatting. I’m just checking my makeup in your webcam.
Do you not own a mirror?
Webcams make me look the way I do in my fantasies.
I know, right? What is it? You always look so good in those things.
I’m throwing out all my mirrors.
Okay, as you can see, I now have a cool job at a dynamic workplace. Being gay is a celebration of life, it’s a simple-
No, I’m sorry, I just can’t sit idly by and have the gay youth of America misled by some reductionist-
It’s not misleading.
-pep talk. Sexuality is a spectrum. It’s a paradox to think of any sexual activity as “normal.” It gets better but it also gets vastly more complicated.
Hey, Robert, that guy, he looks just like you. Robert backs into Kevin’s nose Ooh! whimpers
Ow! Damn it, Kevin! God!
You okay, Robert?
Put some ice on it.
In any case, it gets better. Kevin cries Maybe- maybe not much better… but better.
One, two, three!
I wanted to give a nice gift to the tenants in the building. At first I thought, “muffin basket.” Then I thought, “What’s even more precious to people than muffins?”
Can you just smile, please?
I don’t want to!
…their own children.
Hey everybody, just a few hours left for the free family portrait studio. Darryl. We’d love to see little Jada come by. Angela? Why don’t you bring by your little angel?
No thank you.
Jim, you’ve got those two cute kids. We sure would love to see them.
I know why you’re doing this, Dwight.
Last week, I may have gone too far. I’ll explain it quickly. Basically, I found out where he gets his clothes dry-cleaned. Custom ordered the same suit, made with tear-away Velcro. And… you can fill in the rest.
Jim rips off his clothes Wha-? Stanley laughs Damn it, Jim!
Now he’s trying to get me to bring my children in to work. I think it’s fair to be cautious.
Let me get this straight. You lost all of it. All your winnings. A hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
Bad economy. Bad investment.
You mean to tell me no one wanted an energy drink for Asian homosexuals?
And you got half a million of these? Well I gotta try it.
Aw, come on. What’s the harm? makes face Mmm. What flavor was that?
The coconut’s pretty subtle.
Come on, man. Can’t you just give us a yes or a no?
I don’t know, man. Y’all quit with a lot of confidence. I mean, it was like, y’all came up in here dancing and everybody was- sees Val ooh, hold on a second. sees Brandon Oh.
If I were Val, I would break up with Brandon. Then I would date the hell out of me. I wouldn’t give in to me too fast, let me buy myself some nice dinners and such. But when I finally did give in, I would go crazy on myself.
wearing janitor outfit Hi guys.
How’s it going, man?
whimpering I’m- I’m good, thank you. And how are you?
Great, yeah, good.
Oh, how the mediocre have fallen.
Look, I’m not here to get my old job back. I had my opportunity, I blew it, I’m moving on. I just wanted to come in here and literally beg you for something, anything. I will sweep the floors, water the plants…
No, you don’t understand-
Clean the toilets.
I don’t need anyone to-
Pull the poop out of the toilets.
That’s not even a thing.
Give me something!
Why don’t you clean the carpets for today?
You’re welcome. Up you get then. Pick yourself up. There it is.
You don’t need to-
I have a delicious secret.
Good, good. This carpet’s overdue for a good mopping.
Is a mop the most efficient tool to use on a carpet?
Yeah, it is actually.
Mmm, I can’t hold it in any longer. Um, I am faking this, okay? Because I convinced David Wallace to buy Dunder Mifflin back from Sabre. And at three o’clock today he’s gonna walk in here and reinstate me as manager.
enters with the kids Family picture!
What? Honey, we talked about this.
No, we talked about not bringing them in to Dwight’s photo studio slash trap.
Yes, and then we decided that was crazy.
No, we decided it was crazy not to worry about it.
No, we settled in a much more rational place, remember?
We decided that there’s no way Dwight would harm a child.
But are you a hundred percent sure? I don’t think any of us are.
But it’s free. And we’ll keep our eye on them.
And we’ll make sure Dwight doesn’t do anything C-R-A-Z-Y.
Great, right up there.
Yeah. You just sit right here. Here we go.
Alright. Why don’t you just-
Oh, great. Thank you.
-give him to me and… perfect.
This is great.
There we go.
Just do it.
I’ll just stand here?
Yeah, just keep your eye on Dwight, great.
Sir, could you look into the camera?
Let’s do it, shoot it.
Up here. whistles
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Jim, right here, right here. snaps fingers Okay, good.
Oh, so that’s it?
See? That wasn’t so hard.
Cute kids, thanks for coming.
Hello, Erin. Hello, everybody.
Uh, what? Why? Uh, hi honey. What- how are you doing?
Hi, you know, my office got a call that they were shooting family portraits right here. And if there’s one thing that every politician instinctively understands, it’s a good photo op.
Okay, you’re going to go through the hallway. Here’s a map. And if you get lost, just follow the blue line. points to line on floor
Well, well, well. Senator Lipton, welcome. Angela.
Nice to see you. May I hold him?
No. I am going to hold him because I haven’t seen him all day.
I think that Dwight is doing this whole thing to, um, get a sample of my baby’s DNA to prove he’s the father. Which… is impossible… because the senator is the only man I’ve ever been with.
Phillip cries See the duckie!
Okay, hold on for a second, folks. A few of the baby’s hairs are out of place.
Oh, thank you.
slaps Dwight’s hand away No. No. I like the baby’s hair the way it is.
This is getting more and more delicious by the minute. gargles alcohol, chokes, coughs It’s go time.
Hey Nellie, I made soup – I made you some soup.
Well, I don’t want any soup.
But it’s really good- drops soup Oh!
Oh come on, Andy!
I know this is going to be a great payoff.
A delicious moment.
But after you’re manager, some of these images are going to be hard to shake.
Well, but it-
Just calibrate. Okay? Calibrate.
Okay, here we go. Oh, you know what? I don’t want to throw a wrench in the works, but I want everything to be perfect and the baby’s fingernails are just bothering me-
Uh-uh, leave us alone.
I guess we’re okay with the fingernails.
Okay, great. Suit yourself. Although, are those excess skin cells on the baby’s cheek distracting to you as well?
Dwight, we’re fine!
Oopsie, did somebody make a boopsie?
Oh no. laughs
I’m just gonna take him out and change him just for a second.
He defecated, aw.
A lot has changed since y’all left, okay? You’re gonna have to jump through some hoops. And the new foreman is here. Now she’s one of the best we’ve ever known, okay? So I need you to show her your upmost respect. Make sure she feels welcome and at home, okay? Can you do that?
That’s some pretty blatant complementing you’re doing there, man. I don’t even talk to her like that.
Sounds like you’re trying to hit on my girlfriend.
Calm down, he’s not.
Yes, I am. Just so everyone’s on the same page.
scoffs So you really think she’s gonna leave a guy who owns his own restaurant for a dude who ate his own restaurant?
Thank you, Biggie.
Good luck to you.
Oh, and have a burger for me.
Okay, shall we take a few more?
I think we have all the shots we need. Thank you, Dwight.
Okay. There we go.
No! Dwight! Give me the diaper! Dwight!
Is this what you were looking for? Huh? Huh?
Andy, we wanted to talk to you. A lot of us are very concerned about you.
You’re dirty, you stink of booze, you’re limping inexplicably.
I just want you guys not to worry. ‘Cause old Andy’s gonna be just fine.
No, no, see? This is what we’re talking about. I mean, what was that accent? And last time I checked, you were drunk and now you’re not drunk…
No, unfortunately it’s true. He’s been a nightmare. And the worst part is, he’s been taking it out on me.
You hit her?
No. That is not the deal. Calibrate.
He’s not hitting me. But, he’s been verbally abusing me-
That’s not true either! That’s also total- Everyone, please relax. I think you’re gonna like this surprise guest.
enters Happy birthday to Gabe!
Oh, get out, skeleton man!
I can refer you to someone to talk to.
his phone rings Huh? Hold on.
Give you a name or-
I just gonna- quick- answers phone Hello? Hey, what’s the scoop? Are you close? What? No. no, no, no, no, no. You have to come now. Traffic clears? No, next Friday… that’s not gonna work. Okay. Yeah. Okay. inhales, hangs up Damn it! Well, this is not going to be quite as delicious as I wanted, but I do have a very tasty announcement for you guys. Not only am I not a lowly janitor, I am the regional manager once again! Guys, I got my old job back!
I’m not crazy. I convinced David Wallace to give me my job back.
David Wallace hasn’t worked here in years.
Okay, yes, I see the confusion. I saw David at the fundraiser. He is now a multi-millionaire because he sold his toy vacuum “Suck It” to the U.S. military.
Andy, come on.
Even I know that’s weird.
I- I- Okay, I get how that sounds crazy.
Hey, Andy, Nobody’s calling you crazy, Andy. We’re your friends, Andy.
Stop saying my name.
No, he’s not making this up.
Thank you, Erin.
Andy tells me about seeing David Wallace all the time.
But have you ever actually seen him yourself?
Oh my God.
Erin, come- Come on. You know I’ve been talking to David Wallace.
Do you see David Wallace in the room right now?
into phone Operation Phoenix is a go. Just get the car ready.
Now you look at me like you’re adoring me, I’m gonna look at the camera like I don’t even know you’re there.
I do adore you.
Andrew, it’s time for you to go home. You’re better than this.
Yeah, I know.
Everyone’s better than this, because this is the worst thing I have ever seen. drinks coconut penis energy drink Why’d they add coconut? I miss original.
Hey guys, long time.
David, what are you doing here?
Is it true you’re buying the company?
Okay, I guess the word is out. Uh, please keep this a secret, but yes, I’ve been talking with Andy-
What? Thought I heard my name. What? I’m the new manager?
I’ll get to that in a second, Andy.
But it’s- it is- it is me? Right?
Yes, as we’ve discussed-
But it’s very possible-
Oh my God!
Wow. From janitor to manager?
That’s quite a Cinderella story. From M-O-P to M-V-P.
There’s an official announcement, a few details to be-
From total loss to total boss, I mean-
Can we expect any payroll interruptions?
Now that is a great question, Stanley. Right now I think all your operations or most of your operations are pretty much down in Florida, so to shift back up-
I was so looking forward to that and it did not… go as I thought it would.
So we’re not gonna be a part of Sabre anymore?
Actually, nothing is gonna be a part of Sabre anymore. Jo Bennett’s planning on liquidating the rest of the company.
Oof. laughs Wouldn’t wanna be a Sabre employee right about now. laughs I’m actually the CEO.
Ah, I didn’t realize you were standing there.
Hey, my friend, trust me. This is for the best. I never understood that corporate mess.
Well, okay. Great to meet you.
Likewise, I’m Bob. Bob Kazamakis.
I’d love to give you a little rundown on what I’ve learned about this place.
That’s very gracious of you, Bob. I would love that.
Guess I’d better take off these dirty rags. Figure out how to be a manager of this place.
Perhaps your year of experience managing this branch will come in handy.
Gosh, I hope so.
No! God, Mose! God!
Get out of the car! Get out! Where is he?
I’m not supposed to say.
Yes! slaps Mose Tell me! Tell me where he is! Mose, damn it! Where did he go? Mose! Get back here!

Looks like I might get my delicious moment after all.
May I say one thing?
It would be rude of me not to let you say whatever’s on your mind.
The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath.
Do not bring Shakespeare into this. How dare you play the bard card?
It blesseth he who gives and he who takes. ‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest.
I just want one motherbleep delicious moment. Is that too much to ask?
If I were to hire you back. If. What do you think you would do well?
Special projects manager, that’s my background. I just go around doing whatever I want.
All right, you sly bastard. When can you start?
Okay everyone. I had a conversation with Bob, and since I am going to be CEO now there’ll be no need for him.
Ouch. That’s gotta hurt!
But, he is going to be making so much money from the liquidation, he’s gonna be freed up to do something much more important.
David has generously offered to donate one million dollars in matching funds to a cause that’s very dear to me. So, for the next three years, I’ll be travelling overseas, concentrating all of my efforts on educating- mentoring, some African, some Asian, but mainly Eastern European women.
I had no idea how pervasive this problem was until Bob explained it to me.
Oprah Winfrey’s leadership academy and other schools like it, while wonderful, end with high school. I want to see these girls right through college, especially the gymnasts. They’ve lost so many years of crucial education to perfecting their bodies. Muscle groups the rest of us can’t even fathom.
Gymnasts? You’re going to seek out uneducated gymnasts?
Yeah, so I’m hoping to identify some truly exceptional women who show great promise. Well, Andy, it’s been fun.
Mm. Mm-hmm. they hug, Robert kisses him on the lips
It’s been a great year.
Where is it?
They’re testing it now.
How long does it take to get the results?
You’re gonna wait here?
Yes. Angela sits and holds his hand
Dwight kisses her Dwight, I can’t do this. Dwight!
Senator Lipton. Hey, how are you?
You didn’t call.
Um, well, uh, the issue that I- that concerned me…
You know what this is about. covers Phillip’s eyes Call.
