While it’s always a good night to curl up on the couch with your friends at Dunder Mifflin, Valentine’s Day is really the perfect excuse to cozy up with a marathon of The Office. Sure, romance might not immediately come to mind when you think of the show, but The Office is actually packed with love story after love story (think: Jim and Pam, Dwight and Angela, Michael and Holly, need we say more?), making it a sweet post-dinner watch for you and your valentine.
No matter how dysfunctional, quirky, and awkward the coworkers at Dunder Mifflin may be, they always find a way to focus on what really matters: sharing your life with someone you truly love. While Pam and Jim’s relationship is a highlight, there are so many sweet moments between friends, coworkers, and lovers throughout the comedy’s nine seasons that make it perfect for Galentine’s or Valentine’s Day. Browse through this list of The Office “Valentine’s Day” episodes, ranked from worst to best, to figure out which you should stream.
