The Dundies

MICHAEL: Tonight is the Dundies, the annual employee awards night here at Dunder Mifflin.
And this is everybody's favorite day.
Everybody looks forward to it, because, you know, a lot of the people here don't get trophies very often, like Meredith or Kevin.
I mean, who's gonna give Kevin an award? Dunkin' Donuts? Plus, bonus, it's really, really funny.
So I You know, an employee will go home and he'll tell his neighbor, "Hey, did you get an award?" And the neighbor will say, "No, man.
I mean, I slave all day.
"Nobody notices me.
" The next thing you know, the employee smells something terrible coming from the neighbor's house.
The neighbor's hanged himself due to lack of recognition.
So, you ready for the Dundies? (SIGHS) PAM: You know what they say about a car wreck, where it's so awful you can't look away? The Dundies are like a car wreck that you wanna look away, but you have to stare at it because your boss is making you.
(HOARSELY) Hey, hey, hey! It's Fat Halpert.
What? Fat Halpert.
Jim Halpert.
So, why don't I take you on a tour of past Dundie winners? We got Fat Jim Halpert here.
Jim, why don't you show off your Dundies to the camera? Oh, I can't, because I keep them hidden.
I don't wanna look at them and get cocky.
Oh, that's a good idea.
And mine are at home in a display case above my bed.
Yuck! TMI.
TMI, my friends.
TMI? Too Much Information.
It's just easier to say TMI.
I used to say, "Don't go there," but that's lame.
And here we have Stanley the Manly.
Now, Stanley is a Dundie All-Star.
Aren't you, Stan? Why don't you show them some of your bling? I don't know where they are.
I think I threw them out.
No, you didn't.
I think I did.
Why did Say, we gotta order some more appeteasers this time.
We ran out last year, remember? Yes, we should.
You know what? I wanted one of those skillets of cheese, but when I got off-stage someone had eaten all of them.
To Oscar Martinez, it's the Show Me The Money Award.
Michael has taped every Dundies Awards, and now he's making me look through hours of footage to find highlights.

Hit it, Dwight.
(PLAYING FLUTE) A little bit of Pam all night long A little bit of Angela on the thing A little bit of Meredith everywhere This is the part where Kevin sat in front of the camcorder all night.
It's great.
A little bit of Roy eating chicken crispers A little bit of Kim with some ribs A little bit of It was you.
Live and learn.
It wasn't, I swear.
Yeah, it was.
So, what's the joke? You're not perfect, either.
We're not laughing at you, Dwight.
So, who are we laughing at? Just something somebody wrote.
Who, Dave Barry? No, no.
Just something that was written on the ladies' room wall.
What is it? Who wrote it? It's kind of private.
It's about Michael.
(LAUGHING) That is defacement of company property, so you better tell me.
Kelly, if you tell me, you'll be punished less.
Okay, now I'm laughing at you.
(PAM LAUGHING) Will Her Highness Jan Levinson-Gould be descending from her corporate throne this evening to visit us lowly serfs here at Dunder Mifflin, Scranton? JAN: (STUTTERING) It's a two-and-a-half-hour drive from New York, Michael.
Well, you could take the bus, you could work on the way here, sleep on the way home? No.
Come on, Jan, this is important.
I mean, this is validation to my employees here that you and corporate approve of this.
So But we don't approve of this, Michael.
You only have the budget for one office party a year, so we're not paying for this.
Um Could you Are you there? Yeah, I'm here.
I just wanted to talk to you for a second about that.
MICHAEL: What What is I mean, come on, Jan.
What, it's a You're dropping an A-bomb on me here.
Really? I'm dropping an atomic bomb on you? Well, yeah! I mean what is What No, you can't You already had a party on May 5th for no reason.
No reason? It was the 05-05-05 party.
And you also had a luau.
It happens once every billion years.
And you had a luau.
And the Tsunami Relief fundraiser, which somehow lost a lot of money.
Okay, no, that was a fun-raiser.
I don't really understand that.
I think I made that very clear in the flyers.
Okay, well, I don't understand why anyone would have Fun.
a Tsunami fun-raiser, Michael.
Well, I think a lot of people I mean, that just doesn't make sense.
were very affected by the footage.
This is a little character I like to do.
It is loosely based on Karnak, one of Carson's classic characters.
Here we go.
The PLO, the IRA, and the hotdog stand behind the warehouse.
(RIPPING) Name three businesses that have better healthcare plans than Dunder Mifflin.
Here's the problem.
There's no open bar because of Jan.
And it's the reason why comedy clubs have a two-drink minimum.
We'll be fine, but I just wish people were gonna be drunk.
PHYLLIS: Dwight, get out of here! No, no, no What are you doing in the ladies' room? It's not what you think.
No! Why were you in there? What were you doing in there? You are a pervert! I am not.
The Dundie Award for Longest Engagement goes to Pam Beesly.
Pam, everybody! (MICHAEL WHOOPING) When is that girl gonna get married? That's what I have to say.
Ah, Roy's accepting.
MICHAEL: Thank you, Roy.
Are there any words you'd like to say on Pam's behalf? ROY: We'll see you next year.
Hope not.
I'm not changing that.
That's the best one.
No, it's hilarious.
You're right.
I just think, "World's Longest Engagement," we're all expecting it, you know? That's why it's funny.
Every year that Roy and Pam don't get married, it gets funnier.
Well, I'd think if you use the same jokes, it just comes across as lazy.
Oh, "lazy.
" Uh-huh.
Excuse me, everyone.
Can I have your attention, please? I just wanted to say that the women in this office are terrible.
Especially the ones who wrote that stuff about Michael on the bathroom wall.
Having a bathroom is a privilege.
It is called a ladies' room for a reason, and if you cannot behave like ladies, well, then you are not going to have a bathroom.
You're taking away our bathroom? We are going to have two men's rooms.
But where would we go? Be prepared to hold it, folks.
From 9:00 a.
M Okay, okay, look PAM: Michael? Yes? Dwight's banning us from our bathroom.
Okay, well, that's ridiculous.
So, just don't I don't have time for this right now.
There needs to be repercussions for people's behavior.
Just don't talk, don't talk Okay, look, I know there have been a lot of rumors flying around about the Dundies this year.
How there is no money, and how there is no food, and how the jokes are really bad.
But, what the hell, everybody? I mean, God! The Dundies are about the best in every one of us.
Can't you see that? I mean Okay, we can do better.
So tonight, for the first time, we are inviting all of your friends and family to attend the awards with us.
Yes! MICHAEL: Yeah.
Not bad, right? So let's make this the best Dundies ever.

We got to see Ping and we learned Michael's true feelings for Ryan, which was touching.
And we heard Michael change the lyrics to a number of classic songs, which, for me, has ruined them for life.
What? I don't know.
What? Oh, my God! You are so drunk.
Did you get that? Please tell me that you got This is all going to be on This woman is having a seizure.

Was this year's Dundies a success? Well, let me see.
I made Pam laugh so hard that she fell out of her chair and she almost broke her neck.
So I killed, almost.
Oh, my God! I just want to say that this was the best Dundies ever.
(SCREAMING) Careful, careful, careful.
We have a strict policy here not to over-serve.
Apparently, this young woman was sneaking drinks off of other people's tables.
I Xeroxed her driver's license, and she is not welcome at this restaurant chain ever again.
Great work tonight.
Watch your step.
I had to check her pupils to make sure there wasn't a concussion.
Yes, that, too.
But, I mean, with the audio.
Great work.
I feel bad about what I wrote on the bathroom wall.
No, you don't.
Oh, here she is.
Careful, careful, whoa.
All right, easy.
You're almost there.
Hey, can I ask you a question? Shoot.
I just wanted to say thanks.
It's not really a question.
