“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.”

From: The Office (US)

Genre: Television

Who said it?: Andy Bernard

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the US version of The Office, which ran from 2005 to 2013. It was adapted from the BBC comedy show of the same name. The Office is essentially a mockumentary that takes place in the Scranton branch of the fictional company called Dunder Mifflin, a paper supply company.

The quote comes from the finale of the show. The entire staff is brought together after the documentary has aired and everyone reminisces about their time working at Dunder Mifflin. One such person, Andy Bernard (played by Ed Helms), has moved on and now works at Cornell University. Even so, he still thinks of his time at “the office” as some of the best years of his life.

Geek wisdom:  We all have good memories of our past. Even though they may have been filled with hardship, we can still remember the good times and feel melancholic about not appreciating those times when we actually are experiencing them at that moment. Always cherish the now.
