The Office might have ended back in 2013, but the mockumentary sitcom continues to be a source of entertainment for many. I mean, who hasn’t spent hours scrolling through Netflix, only to wind up watching those old Office episodes again? Throughout its 9-season run, The Office gave viewers a goldmine of great moments, hilarious catchphrases, and memorable scenes and characters. Surely you’ll have no issues come up with a few The Office trivia team names at your next pub trivia show. But if you need a little help getting started, how about checking out 20 of our favorites?
Here Are the 20 Best Office Trivia Team Names
1. The Party Planning Committee
Pam probably sums of The Party Planning Committee best:
“At its worst, it was a toxic, political club used to make others feel miserable and left out. At its best, it planned parties.”
Note: this is not to be confused with The Committee to Plan Parties.
2. “Hi, I’m date Mike. Nice to meet me.”
What do you do when you realize your friends are setting you up on a date? Unbutton your shirt, pop that collar, throw on a backwards Kangol hat, and proceed to dance on a pool table. Oh, and make sure to ask your date how they like their eggs in the morning. That will go well. We’re sure of it.
3. The Scranton Stranglers
The Scranton Strangler was an unseen serial killer in Scranton throughout the series. While we don’t know much about him, we do know that Toby takes an increasing interest in the Strangler after serving on the jury that would ultimately convict him. Of course, Toby then has doubts about the verdict, only to almost end up a victim himself. Sometimes the truth hurts.
4. Shut Up Toby
Speaking of Toby – why doesn’t that guy ever shut up? Why’s he gotta be so annoying all the time? It’s like, can you please just work quietly and leave everyone alone?
5. The Einsteins
Hey, The Office does bar trivia too! When Andy splits everyone up into trivia teams, he makes a “Just For Fun” group made up of some of the slower Dunder Mifflin employees. This group calls themselves The Einsteins, and after struggling with a bunch of common questions, they end up going on a run, eventually beating Oscar’s team to win. If you consider your team an underdog, this might be the trivia name for you.
6. Fun Runners For The Cure
When Michael hits Meredith with a car, he feels pretty bad. That is, until Dwight discloses that Meredith had a precautionary rabies shot at the hospital. Michael then takes credit for saving her life by sending her to the hospital, and organizes a charity 5K called “Michael Scott’s Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for the Cure” in an attempt to bring awareness to the dangers of rabies. If you hate rabies like Michael does, this name is perfect.
7. Scott’s Tots
Hey Mr. Scott
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
Make our dreams come true!
If you’ve ever been promised free college tuition by the Regional Manager of a mid-level paper company, only to be told years later it was all a ruse, give this name a shot.
8. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
Do you need anything else?
9. The Dundies
The elegance. The grace. The tradition. It must be Dundie season. We love the Dundies because everyone gets one. Who wouldn’t want to be awarded Hottest in the Office or the Whitest Sneakers Award? If you’re playing pub trivia just for the participation trophy, you might consider this Office team name.
10. The People Person’s Paper People
Even though it was rejected by Michael, who can forget the catchy jingle made by Darryl and co. for a local Dunder Mifflin ad?
Dunder Mifflin…the people person’s paper people…
If nothing else, your host probably has a 50/50 chance of slipping up when they try to say it.
11. Did I Stutter?
You’ve got to love Stanley Hudson. He’s the serious, hardworking, and totally disgruntled employee that could care less about his surroundings. Often seen in meetings with a crossword puzzle in hand, Stanley is a fan favorite who provided viewers with many memorable lines (“…and then shove it up your butt!” or “Boy, have you lost your mind, ’cause I will help you find it!”). In season 4, after Stanley repeatedly denies Michael’s requests to participate in a meeting, he finally snaps, “Did I stutter?”. Just another classic catchphrase from the big ‘ol grump.
12. Kevin and the Zits
Kevin gets a bad rap as one of the more dimwitted characters in the series, but those that feel that way don’t know the real Kevin Malone. Sure, he sucks at accounting, but he does make a mean chili and is quite the card shark. And when he’s not making creepy comments about Pam, he can be a talented musician. A band called Kevin and the Zits has to be good, right? Right?
13. Threat Level Midnight
Threat Level Midnight, the long awaited film by Michael Scott, had all the makings of a classic action movie: secret agents, robot butlers, plot twists, and even a dance number. Though it was snubbed at the Oscars, we’re sure other bar patrons will get a kick out of this Office team name.
14. Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration
Bob Vance is Phyllis’ husband. He owns Vance Refrigeration, which is in the same building and the same floor as Dunder Mifflin. In season 2 during a Christmas party, Phyllis introduces Bob to a few Dunder Mifflin employees. As Bob shakes each person’s hand, he tacks “Vance Refrigeration” to the end of his name each time. After an awkward silence falls over the group, Ryan asks, “So, what line of work are you in Bob?”
15. The Finer Things Club
If you’re playing pub trivia at a fancy bar, this just might be the perfect Office trivia team name for you. The Finer Things Club is by far the most exclusive club in the office. Pam, Oscar, Toby, and briefly Jim, are the only members. They meet monthly to discuss more sophisticated topics, like books and art and culture. It’s all quite civilized, and “there is no paper, no plastic, and no work talk allowed.”
16. Mose Money, Mose Problems
Mose Schrute is Dwight’s cousin, and together they own and operate a beet farm. Despite being a rather minor character, Mose really makes the most out of his few on-screen appearances. But you know what they say, “the mose money you make, the mose problems you have.”
With Michael’s girlfriend Jan leading the couple to financial ruin, Michael turns to an odd employee for advice. The quirky Creed Bratton tells Michael he should declare bankruptcy, which Michael takes quite literally, walking into the office and shouting, “I…Declare…Bankruptcy!”
18. Scrantonicity (or Scrantonicity II)
Before Kevin and the Zits, there was Scrantonicity, a Police cover band with Kevin as lead singer and drummer. The name plays off the 1983 Police album, Synchronicity. Eventually, however, the group disbands and Kevin joins a new band, Scrantonicity II, which is a reference to the Police song Synchronicity II, on the Synchronicity album. Confused yet?
What goes on in the head of quality assurance employee Creed Bratton? Have you checked out Creed Thoughts? Creed Thoughts is a “blog” that Ryan made for Creed. It just so happens that this blog is actually a Word document though, because Ryan wanted to protect the world from the inner workings of Creed’s brain. According to Ryan, the blog has entries that are “shocking” even by internet standards. The web address is www.creedthoughts.gov.www\creedthoughts.
20. Ryan Started the Fire
Ryan started the fire!
It just started burning,
Hey the temp’s still learning.
Ryan started the fire!
But he didn’t hide it
Because Dwight did find it.
