Kelly Kapoor Quotes From 'The Office'

Let’s all mourn the fact that The Office is leaving Netflix to head towards greener pastures. And by that, we mean the Peacock streaming service. It goes without saying that some of the biggest fans of the hilarious series will follow to binge-watch to their heart’s content. But it’s still sad to know that the show — which gained additional popularity and a new audience through Netflix — will no longer be on our watchlists. The Office is the kind of TV that’s especially important right now, as many of us are stuck at home social distancing and in major need of a few laughs! The hijinx between Dwight Schrute and Jim Halpert prove practically therapeutic for those of us who kinda-sorta (read: desperately) miss our own office buddies right now. And the show’s Kelly Kapoor quotes? Well, let’s just say we wouldn’t have gotten through the pandemic without her fun and biting wit to buoy us.

Played by show writer Mindy Kaling, Kelly Kapoor represented one of the most interesting journeys throughout the series. Always peppy and happy to be at an office with friends, Kelly’s tumultuous relationship with one-time Dunder Mifflin intern Ryan Howard helped make the series shine — not to mention, it’s a huge reason we’re obsessed with Kaling’s ongoing friendship with B.J. Novak (who played Ryan). Basically, Kelly was a character we all felt like we could really relate to.

So, to celebrate our best Dundler Mifflin gal, here are some of the most iconic Kelly Kapoor quotes.
