3. Dwight Christmas (Season 9, Episode 9)

As we all know, The Office is literally the greatest show to ever bless our TV screens.

This is a list of the top ten funniest episodes of the office in no particular order:

The antics of the employees at Dunder-Mifflin remain hilarious no matter how many times you watch them. There are countless episodes that have some of the funniest moments and most quotable lines on television. So while there are some episodes we hold dear because of how special they are, these are the flat-out funniest episodes of The Office.

Michael’s endless quest for respect reaches semi-dangerous levels in this episode as he tries to prove to the warehouse team that the stress and strain of clerical work at Dunder Mifflin compares to being around heavy machinery. It’s a decent argument when you consider the burden that comes from the chaos Michael breeds, especially in this episode when a harsh lesson on gravity culminates in wavering confidence over the plan to fake jump off a building onto a bouncy house. No wonder people need to check the weather before going outside to talk him down.

What do we know about this week? We know that this week, we are breaking down Grief Counseling. We start this episode with some real life bird trouble, and we get some special audio treats from Mindy Kaling and the episode writer herself, Jen Celotta. Then we dig into chip rankings, we clear up a fan theory around Ed Trucks death, and we find out who’s been moving the conference table. Finally, we get a writer’s room deep dive on Dwights absorbed twin speech, and Jenna learns to not touch melons in France. Amen!

And then there’s the Jim and Pam saga. The spark between the goofy salesman and the suppressed receptionist was obvious from the pilot episode. But The Office was wise not to rush things, to let the characters explore other relationships (remember Rashida Jones’ criminally underrated Karen?) stand on their own two feet. In the end, it’s tough to think of a more realistic romance in television. From their awkward flirting to their surprise pregnancy, even their eventual marital rough patch, it all comes off as incredibly authentic.

To some extent, the premiere date of “The Office” — March 24, 2005 — is rather meaningless. It’s the rare kind of series that has crossed generations with many people under the age of 25 discovering it on Netflix, never knowing it was on NBC.

Christmas did not go out with a bang in the final season of The Office. In season 9’s Dwight Christmas episode, Dwight portrays German Santa Claus after the party planning committee doesn’t plan a Christmas party (at least someone had the holiday spirit!). Pete also teaches Erin about Die Hard (and forces her to sit down and watch it).

As the anchor of NBC’s once-heralded Thursday-night lineup, it played a role in pioneering alternative entertainment forms like TV offerings on iTunes and Webisodes on the Internet. It helped executives recognize the value of delayed viewing. Equally important, it opened broadcast television to a new concept in humor: the sitcom that makes you uncomfortable.
