You down with The Dundies? Yeah, you know me!The Office Dundies

It’s Day 2 of TVLine’s Dunder Mifflin-inspired kudos-fest, which aims to the honor the best, worst and most unforgettable moments of The Office, leading into its super-supersized swan song this Thursday at 9/8c on NBC.

VIDEO | The Office Series Finale — Honoring Dunder Mifflin With the Best Dundies Ever

My hand-crafted Dundies today consist of scandals galore, holiday fun, big-time promotions and more. Has your favorite Office gem earned an “award” yet?

The ‘Michael Scott Dreamed a Dream (Job)’ Dundie
Runners Up:
• Michael’s ‘How to Be a Boss’ book, Somehow I Manage — “Happy Hour,” Season 6
• A bathroom-themed invention: Toilet Buddy — “Golden Ticket,” Season 5
• Michael’s impending HBO comedy special, Here I Go Again… – “Threat Level Midnight,” Season 7
• A breakfast-only restaurant called Mike’s Cereal Shack — “Local Ad,” Season 4




Winner:
Michael’s fancy men’s shoe store “Shoe La La” — “Golden Ticket,” Season 5
This one wins simply because it’s my personal favorite. Each of these faux career paths is worthy of its own award, but Michael’s passion for dressing up his fellow man’s feet really resonated with me. To be honest, I actually imagine that Michael and Holly are living happily in Colorado with a couple of kids, having ketchup fights every night and running the family shoe biz.

Scandalously Romantic Dundie
Runners Up:
• Michael happily cheats with a married woman — “The Chump,” Season 6
• Angela learns that Oscar is having an affair with her senator hubby –  “The Whale,” Season 9
• Michael unintentionally lines up two dates on the same night: Jan and Carol — “Casino Night,” Season 2
• An angry Andy learns that Erin and Pete are dating — “Couples Discount,” Season 9
• Roy attacks Jim after learning he kissed Pam — “The Negotiation,” Season 3





Winner:
Dwight and Andy do battle over Angela — “The Duel,” Season 5

It was a fight to the finish for philandering Angela’s heart — and to be honest, I didn’t care who won. I just enjoyed the absurd, Prius-infused throwdown between the onetime friends.

Scandalously Scandalous Dundie
Runners Up:
• Someone vandalizes Pam’s mural — “Vandalism,” Season 9
• Dwight mercy-kills Angela’s sick cat Sprinkles — “Fun Run,” Season 4
• Ryan is arrested for fraud — “Goodbye, Toby,” Season 4
• Temporary bossman Dwight fires off a gun in the office — “Dwight K. Schrute, (Acting) Manager,” Season 7
• Michael shamefully goes back on his promise to pay a graduating class’ college tuition — “Scott’s Tots,” Season 6





Winner:
Michael runs over Meredith with his car — “Fun Run,” Season 4
Both horrified by what just went down, Michael and Meredith — or rather Steve Carell and Kate Flannery — could not have played this moment more perfectly. And what followed, including a charitable 5K, a rabies reveal and a broken pelvis, helped catapult this installment to The Office Hall of Fame.

‘Tis the Season Dundie
Runners Up:
• “A Benihana Christmas,” Season 3
• “Moroccan Christmas,” Season 5
• “Secret Santa,” Season 6
• “Classy Christmas,” Season 7
• “Christmas Wishes,” Season 8
• “Dwight Christmas,” Season 9






Winner:
“Christmas Party,” Season 2
Nothing beats the original. Not a darn thing. When you’ve got a Yankee Swap, a $400 iPod, lampshades on the head and Kelly drunkenly kissing Dwight, you’ve got it all.

‘Second Helpings’ Dinner Party Dundie
Runners Up:
• Michael shows off his beloved plasma TV; it’s later destroyed
• Jan unveils to the world “Serenity by Jan,” her not-so-budding candle business
• Dwight crashes the party with his elderly childhood nanny
• Jan dances seductively to her assistant Hunter’s song
• Jan and Michael come to blows — and battle over some Dundies





Winner:
Michael reveals the toll that three “snip/snaps” take on a man
“Dinner Party” as a whole will go down as one of The Office‘s most epic episodes, but no moment in the half-hour stands out as much as Michael’s painfully hilarious description of undergoing multiple vasectomies at the request of his lady love.

I Second That Promotion Dundie
Runners Up:
• Ryan gets Jan’s coveted job at corporate — “The Job,” Season 3
• Dwight bumps Jim up to Assistant to the Regional Manager — “Livin’ the Dream,” Season 9
• Darryl gets his own upstairs office — “St. Patrick’s Day,” Season 6
• Kelly dominates Sabre’s Minority Executive Training course — “Body Language,” Season 6




Winner:
Dwight is named Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton — “Livin’ the Dream,” Season 9
It was a moment nine seasons in the making — and it did not disappoint. From Dwight accepting his new position from David Wallace to the beet farmer shouting his long-overdue title from the rooftops desktops, every beat of these emotional scenes was perfection. (Side note: NBC has this moment on lockdown. My team and I tried our darnedest to obtain this joyous clip, but no luck. As such, I hope you’ll enjoy this photo play-by-play of Dwight’s much-deserved triumph.)
