(1) Michael (the boss, if you don't know the show) is concerned that the office is jinxed, but he's not letting it overwhelm him. He says, "I am not superstitious, but I am little stitious."
(2) Pam (the receptionist) walks in on Michael as he's changing into his running clothes. He's not fully dressed. Talking to a co-worker about the incident, she says, "The image of his dangling participle still burns in my eyes."
I am slightly stitious that I can never say the phrase "dangling participle" again in polite company.
