Ryan Howard is one of the few characters on The Office that you can call an antagonist. He is a pretentious womanizer who wants to make it big in the business world. He makes a lot of mistakes and has no problems screwing over the people that care about him. He doesn’t really have any redeeming qualities.
Ryan is played by B.J. Novak, who was also one of the writers and directors of the series. His hilarious take on this scumbag of a character is legendary. I loved the story arc of him moving to the top of the company by committing fraud, and the inevitable fallout that occurred afterward.
Today we want to go over home hilarious Ryan quotes from The Office. If we missed any of your favorites, let us know on social media. Enjoy!
