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:

So, naturally, narrowing this show’s entire run down to 50 episodes was a process as hard as it was long. There were times when I almost pulled out. Honestly, I didn’t think I could fit everything in to such a small space. Eventually, though, after a lot of effort, I was finally satisfied.*

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.

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.

After an accident in the warehouse (caused by Michael, of course) the entire office must undergo safety training. The premise is the perfect setup for Michael to show off how immature he is while also getting self-conscious about his cushy position. The final moments of Michael planning to jump off the roof to prove the dangers of office life shows Michael at his most ridiculous.

This gem-of-an-episode is yet another no-brainer as one of the best installments of all time. But while many of the episodes on this list hinge on important plot points or momentous events, this one earns its place through pure comedic joy.

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.
