An R package to get The Office quotes whenever you want!





The main function of the package is get_quote. This function by default returns one random quote from all of the main office cast. See ?filter_quotes to see who is included in the main office option.

Curated dataset

Over the next few months, I plan to work on creating a list of the funnier quotes I come across while using the dundermifflin package to create a curated data set of funny quotes that users can use as their source for random quotes! You can help with this! I have opened an issue named Funny Quote Indices where you can paste the quote and the indices of the quote. In order to get the indices of the quotes you are seeing, be sure to set idx = TRUE

get_quote(idx = TRUE)
#> In a way it’s like I have a son. And who knows? Maybe someday they’ll hire 
#> someone who looks like a younger version of him. And then I’ll have a grandson.
#> ~ Dwight
#> Season 9, Episode 1 - New Guys
#> Quote Index: 43102


This package also comes with a tibble, office_quotes, that has all of the lines from the Office, with the exception of season 5.

All of the data in this dataset was obtained from theOffice-api.
