Dwight Schrute was one of many shining lights in a fantasy show in The Office, and while he had many, many more, here is a list of Dwight’s top 5 moments.
5. The Penis Detective
Unfortunately one day on the way to work, Phyllis is flashed by a particularly disgusting human being. However, what follows is Dwight attempting his own particular version of justice, trying to track down and find the pervert. In the process, he manages to put pictures all over the neighborhood of a sketch of Pam that looks suspiciously like himself and enforces new rules in the office much to the chagrin of his female co-workers.

4. Quite the disguise
In one of the season seven episodes, Dwight reveals that he has a wig and a disguise for each of his co-workers because “you never know when you might need a passing resemblance to someone… other”. Luckily, in addition to that admission, we actually see Dwight as a few of his colleagues, my personal favorites being Kevin and his crossword puzzle Stanley.
One of the few times Dwight surprises Jim during a particularly snowy episode involving a snowman, and later, LOTS of snowmen. It’s the first time we’ve seen Jim genuinely unable to control the situation, and after a peculiar snowball attack, while nursing his split lip, Dwight texts Jim suggesting he “put some ice on it. ‘, then we see an ecstatic Dwight in the background.
2. Fire drill
In one of the more dangerous opening darts, we see Dwight create his own version of a fire drill. With him smashing keys in locks, setting doorknobs on fire so they’re too hot to touch, and finally lighting a cigarette before tossing it into a bin full of paper, it’s easy to see his logic when everything the office turns into a panic, but it’s also easy to question one’s actions, because surely there are easier ways to get better results. This gives us a particularly funny scene involving Oscar telling Angela that her cat is too heavy to save, as it disappears into the roof, with the cat quickly following after Angela throws it away.
1. His Own Hannibal Lecter Moment
Number one in Dwight’s Top 5 Moments, we have an office-wide first aid training session, with workers learning CPR and what song to do it to. As this immediately ends up singing and dancing with Michael and Andy, Dwight takes the time to criticize the CPR dummy, before scraping his face and wearing it alone, and immediately impersonating Hannibal Lecter, much to the terror of some of his co-workers.

I could write all day about Dwight’s top 5 moments, and in fact, this could be extended to many more, but as honorable mentions I have to mention the many moments Dwight has with Michael. Whatever crazy plan Michael concocts, Dwight is completely on board, whether it’s the fake birth of his un-baby with Jan, the Scranton City music video, or Branch Wars, where Michael, Dwight and Jim go on a trip to sabotage a competing branch. Without Michael, we wouldn’t have gotten the most out of Dwight, like Jim, for that matter.
