I was looking for a new quote to appear in the header of this site (some of you may notice that it actually DOES change from time to time) and with all the Lost talk, one short phrase from The Office and Andy Bernard kept coming to me.
“…gonna get my ‘Lost’ on…”
So I investigated. Actually, Jina investigated for me because she’s good like that. She discovered the full quote that I was looking for, which led not only to the Andy Bernard line, but also to the Michael Scott talking head at the end of the episode.
Andy: Hey, boss.
Michael: Hey, what’s up.
Andy: Noooothin’. Ehrrrrrrrrr. Heh. Man. TGI-Wednesday. Am I right?
Andy: Gonna go home. Get my beer on. Get my “Lost” on. What are you doing later, wanna hang out?
Michael: I don’t know. Maybe.
Andy: Well, I will take that as a maybe. [Michael gets up] Where are you going?
Andy: Oh, well, I’m going to the kitchen, I’ll walk with you.
Hilarious moment of irony in that Andy seems to annoy Michael big time, which is usually how people feel about Michael.
The ending quote is pretty classic as well, totally showing the cluelessness that he has about most things.
Michael: Love that Andy, right? Solid fellow. Seems smart enough. Likes me a lot. A lot. Too much. Like a crazy person. A little. Not super crazy… just… there’s something about him that creeps me out. I can’t really explain it. He’s always up in my bidness. Which is ebonics for “being in my face and annoying the bejesus out of me.” I don’t understand how someone could have so little self-awareness.
All of this to say…I have a new quote and I really, REALLY miss this show.
