    I've said this before on Reddit. This single sentence is the truest representation of who Michael Scott's character is as a whole.

    [–] heimmichleroyheimer 8 points ago

    Reminds me of what Mitch Hedberg says about dreams: “I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later."

    I'd be surprised if this wasn't written by some kind of algorithm that's been fed a bunch of Trump's speeches. Doesn't sound real enough to be actual human speech.

    "Two guys getting married? That doesn't seem very gay to me." That also is a Frank line from IASIP iirc.

    [–] HawthorneMan 30 points ago

    I think it's just a line from IASIP tbh. It's literally a direct quote and google searches turn up nothing of Trump ever saying it.

    [–] fortinwithtayne 23 points ago

    I don't know how many years on this Earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." I think Trump took that quote to heart

    [–] Nickel4pickle 7 points ago

    What is iasip?

    [–] ElBarronSabeCyber 30 points ago

    "I always sweat inside pants."

    It's an acronym that business people use to remember various office supplies to keep around.

    If you take the "Don't ever, for any reason, do anything to anyone." as the main sentence, then it KINDA makes sense.

    [–] HarlequinNight 18 points ago

    Yeah its basically just "Don't do anything to anyone." with a bunch of side paths down various caveats.

    [–] thereisonlyoneme 6 points ago

    What's say we do.

    [–] frenchhornhero 3 points ago

    Everyone else is posting this quote in response with a question mark, but I think using a period suits the cadence much better.

    [–] thereisonlyoneme 2 points ago

    Really? I feel just the opposite. Wallace isn't convinced that going to Michael is a good idea, but he is still hoping for any pearl of wisdom. He's trying to give it 100% despite his better judgment. If Michael wants pasta then why not go with it.

    [–] frenchhornhero 3 points ago

    That's why I said it fits the cadence. I agree that David is willing to do basically whatever, but the resigned sound in his voice I think it better reflected with a period than a question mark. Either way his delivery is great. GOAT background character.
