Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day
Michael organizes a "Lonely Hearts Party" for the single employees, leading to unexpected romantic connections and Jim's heartfelt gesture towards Pam. Jim asks Pam out on a date, but she rejects him due to her engagement.

Pam: 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...

Pam: Phyllis.

Delivery man: Would you sign here?

Pam: Roy and I are saving for the wedding, so I made him promise not to get me anything too big.

Meredith: "Happy Valentine's Day darling. Love Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration."

Phyllis: Isn't he sweet?

Meredith: Yeah. Wow.

Michael: Alright Dwight, as you know I am heading to New York today. Doing a presentation on the branch to the new CFO.

Dwight: And you want me to come with you.

Michael: Nope. The opposite of that.

Dwight: I will stay here and run things on this end.

Michael: Ok, good.

Dwight: Question. Will you be seeing Jan when you're in New York?

Michael: I probably will, why do you ask?

Dwight: Well... It's Valentine's Day, and you guys, you know...

Michael: Yeah.

Dwight: Screwed.

Michael: is your problem?

Michael: 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.

Michael: Hey, Pam. You heart N.Y., right? You want me to pick you up anything?

Pam: That's OK.

Michael: Alright.

Oscar: The best present would be, you do a good job in front of the new CFO.

Michael: Dude, I'm gonna nail it. Me in New York? Oh, I own that city. Fuggedaboudit! See ya!

Michael: 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.

Jim: 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.

Dwight: What's this? What is this?

Jim: desk.

Dwight: Yeah, but who put it here? And for what purpose?

Jim: It was there when I sat down.

Dwight: Happy Valentine's Day. It's me. I'm the bobble head. Yes! Ahh!

Michael: 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.

Jim: Hey Kelly. What's up?

Kelly: Nothing. Oh except, oh my God Jim. Last night, Ryan and I totally, finally hooked up. It was awesome.

Jim: OH, that's great. I'm really happy for

Kelly: 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.

Jim: Wow.

Kelly: So I said, "Ryan, what took you so long?" And I just said that to him, can you believe that?

Jim: Wow.

Kelly: Oh my God, Jim, is that embarrassing? I'm embarrassed.

Jim: No, don't be.

Kelly: Oh, thank God, because I was nervous, Jim, you will not believe.

Jim: I bet.

Kelly: So nervous, but now -- now I have a boyfriend.

Jim: Alright.

Ryan: I hooked up with her on February 13th.

Michael: Here it is, heart of New York City, Times Square. Named for the good times you have when you're in it. Most people when they come to New York, they go straight to the Empire State Building, that's pretty touristy. I come here. Great places to eat. We have Bubba Gump Shrimp, Red Lobster down there. Ya know. This is, this is the heart of civilization, right here.

Kevin: Woah.

Pam: Guess what?

Phyllis: Really, Oh, they're from Bob again.

Pam: That's great.

Michael: Everybody takes the subway in New York. It's fast, it's efficient, gets you there on time. It's a way to Okay, there's a guy pooping in a cardboard box down there.

Michael: This is the world famous Rockefeller Center. Founded, of course by Theodore Rockefeller. This is a skating rink and I think the Rangers practice there sometimes and it's, that's Tina Fey. That's Tina Fey from Saturday Night Live. Hello? Hello, hi? OH, I'm sorry, I thought you were, OK, I thought that was. She, she looked a lot like Tina Fey. Hello, hello, I thought that was Tina Fey, but it wasn't. So... Are you serious? He was here? When, when I was talking to the fake Tina Fey? Come on! And are you, argh.

Dwight: Hello Angela. Did you hear, somebody rocked the house and got me the best present I've ever gotten.

Angela: Really? I wouldn't know anything about that, but I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Dwight: Oh I did. I did.

Angela: I didn't get anything for Valentine's Day.

Dwight: Oh, I bet you will before the day is over.

Angela: Really? Well, I hope I do.

Michael: 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. 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.

Jim: Nah that's alright. Spend money on her, instead of giving it to us. That's fine. No, I didn't even have a seat for you anyway. Yeah, hahaha, alright man, have a good night. Bye.

Kevin: Woah, woah

Delivery man: Phyllis Lapin.

Pam: OH, Holy God!

Delivery man: It's from Bob.

Kevin: Man, that thing's bigger than I am.

Delivery man: No, it's not.

Kevin: Oh zip it.

Michael: There they are. What's up? Hey hey.

Craig: Hey.

Josh: Michael Scott.

Michael: Josh Porter, high five. Bam.

Josh: You know Dan Gore from Buffalo.

Michael: Yeah, how ya doing? Nobody needs to introduce this guy. Craiggers.

Craig: What's up buddy?

Michael: You have been kicked out of every strip club in Albany, is that true?

Craig: Guilty, yeah.

Michael: So what's going on? What I miss?

Josh: Not much, they're uh, I guess running late upstairs, so we're just waiting for the presentations.

Michael: Cool. Good, good, good. Give us some time to catch up, and...

Dwight: Pam. Hi, How ya doing? Good. Listen, uh may I speak with you... privately?

Pam: You can't fire me, Dwight, just 'cause Michael's not here.

Dwight: No, Pam, Just. Just,

Pam: You need to get something for your girlfriend.

Dwight: 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...

Pam: Tightly wound?

Dwight: (smirking) Exactly.

Pam: Ok, well, sometimes the gift is really about the gesture, you know, like what it means, instead of what it is.

Dwight: You mean, like a ham?

Pam: No, not like a ham. It's about doing something, so that the person knows that you really care about her.

Dwight: Ok, I get it.

Pam: That you remember her.

Dwight: Ok, shut up. I know exactly what to do.

Josh: What about you, Craig, you lose anyone?

Craig: Oh man, Jan, called me in September and said "You gotta fire four people," and I was just like, "What?" Ya know?

Josh: Did you?

Craig: No, I just ignored her. She's the worse.

Josh: She is our boss.

Craig: She ain't my boss dude. I don't work for that bitch.

Michael: Ay, Kay. Come on, you know, that's not. Cool it.

Craig: Jan?

Michael: Maybe because she's my girlfriend. Was, or not my girlfriend. She's... we hooked up and...

Josh: You hooked up with Jan?

Michael: You know, months ago, just once, It's, just stupid. Just forget it,

Josh: Yeah, let's change the subject.

Michael: Yeah, yeah.

Kelly: I don't know what he's thinking, but I would just be so psyched if we just dated forever.

Jim: Take it slow. 'Cause it seems like a lot of the time things like that need...

Ryan: Soda.

Kelly: Cool. Hey, so... do you want to... do something tonight? Or...

Jim: Oh, no, not while I'm here.

Kelly: 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...

Ryan: I can't tonight. I have plans with my friends.

Kelly: OK, That's cool. I completely understand.

Ryan: Cool. Cool. OK.

Jan: Josh Porter, Stamford.

David Wallace: David

Josh: Nice to meet you.

Jan: And Michael Scott, Scranton.

David Wallace: Nice to meet you.

Michael: Ditto. How are you Jan?

Jan: Fine Michael. Thank you.

David Wallace: 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...

Jan: 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.

Josh: So with the twelve new local accounts, we had a total of four percent organic growth, which was just above our pre-year targets.

David Wallace: Thanks very much.

Josh: Thank you.

David Wallace: OK, Michael.

Michael: 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.

Michael: 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.

Michael: 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.

Michael: 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.

Michael: Questions?

David Wallace: Wow. OK, OK, thank you Michael, that was great.

Michael: Yes, thank you.

David Wallace: 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?

Michael: Yes, absolutely David. Get that for you. I umm...

Delivery man: Can you sign?

Pam: Yeah.

Pam: Oscar.

Angela: Nothing for me?

Pam: Join the club.

Kevin: Whose it from?

Oscar: My mom.

Kelly: It's frustrating, because we'd be so perfect together.

Jim: 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.

Kelly: Yeah, it would be so great if he was.

Jim: 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.

Kelly: Okay, cool. Is it okay if I invite Ryan?

Dan: And that about does it, thank you.

Jan: OK. Craig,

Craig: Yeah. Here's the deal. I did not understand this was supposed to be a full on... like report or whatnot.

Jan: Um, I'm sorry, what did you think financial presentation meant?

Craig: I was under the impression this was, more of like... a meet and greet type deal.

David Wallace: So, does that mean you don't have the numbers on your branch?

Craig: That is correct, yes.

Jan: Craig, you realize that we're trying to decide whether if drastic steps need to be taken?

Craig: Look, I'm sorry, I didn't know.

Jan: Well, the point is, is that doesn't exactly bode well for your branch.

Craig: 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.

Michael: Oh, ok. Alright.

Jan: 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.

Michael: No you're not.

Jan: Yeah, Michael - the CFO thinks that we slept together. Do you understand, people get fired for much less? And I just can't believe that you told everybody and we didn't even sleep together.

Michael: Technically, we fell asleep in the same bed. So...

Jan: Oh, God. Michael. It was months ago. It was once, It's over. Do you understand?

Michael: Yes. I'm sorry. I will fix this. I'll talk to him. I'll talk to David.

Jan: Surely, you cannot be serious?

Michael: I am serious. And don't call me Shirley. Airplane.

Dwight: 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.

Roy: Hey babe.

Pam: Hey.

Roy: You almost ready to go?

Pam: I guess, yeah.

Roy: What's wrong?

Pam: Nothing, it's just I had to sit here all day, while Phyllis got like an entire garden delivered to her.

Roy: What, you're mad at me?

Pam: for Valentine's Day.

Roy: Well, Valentine's Day isn't over. Let's get you home and you are gonna get the best sex of you life.

David Wallace: You understand this is a very serious situation.

Michael: 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.

David Wallace: You made a joke?

Michael: 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 Wallace: Well I don't need to explain to you that even a joke about sexual relations with your boss...

Michael: 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.

Jan: Uh, that's fine. Let's just forget it.

David Wallace: Good.

Pam: Heading out?

Jim: Yeah. Alright, Beesly, Hey, Happy Valentine's Day.

Pam: Bye.

Phyllis: Goodnight Pam.

Pam: Night Phyllis.

Jan: Oh, Michael. Thank you again for that, really. It was very nice.

Michael: Oh, no big deal. Really. Sorry again.

Jan: Oh, no, it's OK. So, uh, Happy valentine's Day.

Michael: Yeah, Happy Valentine's Day.

Jan: Oh.

Michael: Oy vey... schmear.

Pam: Michael's got a few tricks for Valentine's Day. He found a place where you can get 12 plastic roses for $10 and he's got a great line. "Me so thorny."

Michael: I love you, Angela. Yes, even you. I love you, Kelly. I love you, Meredith. This is all platonically, of course.

Michael: I love ladies, always have. And you know what I think is the most attractive part of a woman's body? The brains. Because I don't think a woman is beautiful unless she is smart. And also, the brains are where the ladies get their best nasty ideas for bedroom stuff.

Creed: I'm not good with names.

Michael: Okay, here's the thing about Jan. She talks such a big game about, "Oh there's nothing between us and stop talking about it." And "Border-line harassment when you call me at home." But let me ask you this, is it just a coincidence that this meeting is taking place on Valentine's Day? Answer, maybe, but maybe not. We shall see.

Jim: Dwight lives on a beet farm and he practices karate at the forth grade level. And he apparently has a girlfriend, so... I guess there really is someone for everybody.
