The Dundies, which was an award show style evening, was created by Michael to award different employees. One of the most loved episodes of The Office is from the Dundies episode, where Michael acts as an award show host, making jokes, some of which didn’t necessarily land. This hilarious episode is just too funny.

Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute had an incredibly tumultuous relationship, but an endearing one at that. Dwight, who was dedicated to his boss, and his role as assistant to the regional manager, took his position at Dunder Mifflin very seriously, and as a result, became close with Michael in many ways.

When Michael left the show, fans were unsure if he would make a return, but in the end, he did. Michael made an appearance at Dwight’s wedding, which goes to show the kind of boss he really was, and his iconic line, “That’s what she said,” just made the moment perfect.

Michael Scott was famous and loved by fans for many reasons, but his iconic lines are probably the main reason. He was constantly saying things that made no sense, or, saying things that probably shouldn’t have been said.

However, one of his funniest lines, and most quoted, is definitely the time he stated that sometimes he just starts talking for no reason, which fans found to be so accurate to this character, and incredibly funny. Michael stated, Sometimes I’ll start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.”

One of the funniest ongoing jokes from The Office was Michael Scott’s relationship with Toby, or the lack thereof. Toby, who worked for Human Resources, was often telling Michael what was and was not allowed to happen in the office of Dunder Mifflin, which, as expected, Michael never took well.

His hatred for Toby only grew as the show went on, and season after season his disdain never went away. This funny moment proves Michael never backed down from his feelings and is seriously too funny. Fans definitely remember this funny episode all too well!

Whole life, if you must. . The Office (2005-2013)♥️ .

One of the biggest testaments to how loved Michael Scott was by his employees, whether they always showed it or not, was Jim’s goodbye to Michael when he left Dunder Mifflin. Fans know, this goodbye was incredibly sad and hard to watch. The scene shows Michael, visibly upset about leaving his job, which he so deeply loved, as well as his employees, who to him, felt like family.

This scene, while it’s very sad, is also very sweet, and proves that Michael Scott was a great boss, and would be missed by his entire branch. This adorable moment proves how amazing Michael really was.
