What is there to say about Creed Creed Bratton from The Office? How can one accurately describe the joys of a perfect Creed one-liner? Or the mystery surrounding Dunder Mifflin's most nonsensical character? What other character in the history of television is as quotable, as clinically insane, and as lovable as Creed?
Although Creed was rarely a major focus of The Office, that's exactly what made him so special. Like Ralph Wiggum before him, Creed works best in short spurts, often popping up at exactly the right moment to spout off a non-sequitur or talk about the men he may or may not have slept with in the 60s. But that doesn't mean that when The Office did happen to give us a Creed-centric episode it didn't work. On the contrary, the best Creed episodes of The Office are magical little glimpses into the deranged mind of a madman. Whether these Creed episodes reveal a little bit about Scranton's most drugged up senior, or simply show a new side of Creed Bratton that we haven't seen before, any time Creed gets more screen time than usual it's something to savor.
So let's rub some printer ink in our hair, get involved in a number of cults (both as a leader and a follower), and put on our best blood-spattered shirt for Halloween, because it's time to rank the best Creed episodes of The Office.
With Deangelo Vickers still in a coma, Dunder Mifflin-Sabre Scrantonis left with Creed as interim regional manager.
