It's been exactly 11 years since we first heard Michael Scott drop a "that's what she said" line. On March 24, 2005, "The Office" aired on NBC and changed our lives and perceptions of paper companies forever.

During its run time, "The Office" won five Emmys, a Golden Globe and two SAG awards, among many others.
