If you love the office as much as we do then you love Dwight. The reason we love Dwight is the pranks. He maybe the person being pranked but that’s what makes it so good!
10. When Jim made Dwight believe he was being recruited by the CIA.
When: Season 3, Episode 10
What: Pam explains the CIA is considering Dwight for a top secret mission, complete with an application and a list of every secret he’s ever told (after all, who knew Michael would go to magic camp). Pam’s gift to Jim is in his hands to decide what Dwight’s top secret mission will be.
I mean why would Dwight not want to be a member of the CIA?
9. When Jim sells Dwight magic beans at a garage sale.
When: Season 7, Episode 19
What: Jim convinces Dwight to trade a telescope marked at $150 for “Professor Copperfield’s Miracle Legumes.”
Those magic beans…
8. When Jim switches Dwight’s suit with a Velcro version.
When: Season 8, Episode 24
What: Jim switches Dwight’s suit with a tear-away Velcro version while at the dry cleaners, then tore it off of Dwight in the Dunder-Mifflin parking lot, leaving Dwight in his underwear for his coworkers to see
It’s that green underwear that gets me.
7. When Jim replaces Dwight’s desk with a cardboard version wrapped in Christmas paper.
When: Season 5, Episode 10
What: Dwight thinks he can tear through the wrapping in about five minutes, while Jim thinks it will take longer. After all, if he can skin a deer in 10 minutes, this should be no problem. Dwight simultaneously drops his briefcase on his desk and sits on his chair, only to see his briefcase tear through the non-existent desk and his chair to crumble beneath his weight.
The fall is golden. Pure gold.
6. When Jim gradually increases the weight of Dwight’s telephone.
When: Season 2, Episode 21
What: Jim incrementally increased the weight of Dwight’s telephone handset then abruptly decreased the weight, causing Dwight to smack himself in the face with the phone.
The fact this prank is just a passing comment is very sad.
5. When Jim tells Dwight the impersonator he hired is the real Benjamin Franklin.
When: Season 3, Episode 14
What: Jim Hired a Benjamin Franklin impersonator instead of a male stripper for Phyllis’s bachelorette party. He then told Dwight that the Ben Franklin impersonator was the real Franklin.
Is it just me that thinks Benjamin Franklin would make a great stripper?
4. When Jim dresses up as Dwight.
When: Season 3, Episode 20
What: Jim dressed up as Dwight and parodied his speaking style. Dwight returned the favour but was unable to successfully mimic Jim’s pattern of speech and insult him for who he was.
It would be wrong to not have this in the top 10.
3. When Steve takes Jim’s place and pretends to have been Jim the entire time.
When: Season 9, Episode 3
What: Jim and Pam’s actor friend Steve, pretend’s to be Jim while Jim is at the dentist. Steve is Asian and pretends that he has been this whole time and Dwight just never noticed. Steve knew everything Jim knew including his sales history and his password to access his messages. He also replaced his own family photos with ones of Pam, Steve, and two Asian children.
Good old Steve.
2. William M. Buttlicker.
When: Season 5, Episode 7
What: Jim convinced Dwight he was William, M Buttlicker, in a role-play to help both Dwight and Jim improve the way they speak to customers. Evidently, Dwight does not do very well in the role play and Jim (Bill Buttlicker) asks to speak to Dwight’s manager, Michael takes the phone from Dwight and quickly makes a million dollar sale, with one condition, Michael must fire Dwight.
I nearly cried watching this scene.
The big one. The number 1 best prank on Dwight is……..
1. When Jim tricks Dwight into thinking Jim’s hotel room was a murder scene.
When: Season 8, Episode 15
What: Jim tricked Dwight (and, inadvertently, Erin) into thinking Jim’s hotel room was a murder scene by placing a suitcase of money on a chair, writing “IT WAS DWIGHT” on the wall, hanging a rope made of sheets over the balcony, and falling out of his closet, pretending to be dead.
It was voted the top prank and it is by far the best one. Ever. Fact.
