The Office was on for nine seasons consisting of 201 complete episodes, and like any major comedy hit, the show had its fair share of walk-on characters. Often, these were played by big-name celebrities, and when it happened, they usually only stuck around for a single episode.
Because it was on for so long, The Office racked up quite a few of these characters, and even though they were only around for one episode, many of them are hilarious and unforgettable. Of course, the opposite is also true, and there are tons most viewers have forgotten.
Not every one-off character is going to be memorable, and for the ones who were, there are hordes of fans who quote their lines whenever they recall the series. It takes a lot to make a single appearance last in someone's memory, and among the many that were on The Office, not every one of them was especially amazing.
For these ten who were, it's likely viewers recall just about everything they said and did while they were on the show. They may have only been around for a short appearance, but these ten single episode characters were the best to show up on The Office.
