Hello everyone,

I am new to these forums, so I thought I'd start a topic about Office Space.

Has anyone ever seen this movie? I think it is absolutely hilarious!

At sometime during the movie, Peter says: "You see, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't care."

I think a t-shirt should be made with that line!  Big thumbs up

Anyway, what are your thoughts regarding this movie?

Respectfully,

NWA742

LOL! "uh, Milton, we are moving in some new people this week, we're going to have to go ahead and move you downstairs, um yeah"

I will forever bow my head in shame for saying PTS not TPS..  Big grin I was thinking of ground school.

That movie was hilarious.

Anyone remember when they devise the plan to take fractions of cents from the company everyday, but there is a software glitch, and they end up with like $300,000 overnight? And then the building burns down that morning.

"I don't want to work anymore."

I watch Office Space at LEAST once a month... one of my favorite movies of all time.

I don't just appreciate Office Space...I live the damned movie on a daily basis!

Seriously; an example conference call on Thursday - hours of absolute hell, I might add - we ended up playing Bullsh*t Bingo. Three times! I lost track of how many times people on the conference spouted such purpose-free and meaningless phrases as 'leverage synergies', touch base', 'transitional awareness', 'customer-centric'. In two years with this current employer it dawned on me that this was the most wasteful, pointless, god-awful, spirit-sapping exercise I've yet had the misfortune to experience.

*sigh*. So yes, I love the movie and just know that it will become SO much more relevant as time goes on. It should have been a massive hit from the start.

Tom Smykowski: It's a "Jump to Conclusions Mat"! You see, you have this mat, with different CONCLUSIONS written on it that you could JUMP TO!

Michael Bolton: That is the worst idea I've ever heard!

Samir: Yes, this is horrible, this idea!

-----------------------------------

Lawrence: Hey Peter, check it out, channel 9, it's the breast exams!

Peter Gibbons: He's going to ask me to work on Sunday and I'm going to do it, because I'm a pussy, which is why I work at Initech in the first place.

Michael Bolton: Hey, I work at Initech and I don't consider myself a pussy.

Samir: Yes, I am also not a pussy.

-----------------------------------

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?

Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.

Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?

Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.

Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.

Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.

Lawrence: What about you, what would you do?

Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?

Lawrence: Well yeah.

Peter Gibbons: Nothing.

Lawrence: Nothing, huh?

Peter Gibbons: I'd relax, sit on my ass all day, I would do nothing.

Lawrence: Well you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Just take a look at my cousin, he's broke, don't do shit.

-----------------------------------

Peter Gibbons: I don't like my job and I don't think I'll go anymore.

Joanna: You're just not gonna go?

Peter Gibbons: Yeah.

Joanna: Won't you get fired?

Peter Gibbons: I don't know. But I really don't like it and, uh, I'm not gonna go.

Joanna: So you're gonna quit?

Peter Gibbons: Uh-uh. Not really. I'm just gonna stop going.

Joanna: When did you decide all that?
Peter Gibbons: About an hour ago.

Joanna: So you're going to get another job?

Peter Gibbons: I don't think I'll like another job.

Joanna: Well what are you going to do about money? Bills?

Peter Gibbons: You know I never really liked paying bills, I don't think I'm going to do that either.

-------------------------------------

Samir: No one is this country can ever pronounce my name right. It's not that hard: Nayee-Nanajar. Nayeenanajar.

Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least you're name isn't Michael Bolton.

Samir: You know, there's nothing wrong with that name.

Michael Bolton: There WAS nothing wrong with it. Until I was about 12 years old, and that no-talent-ass-clown because famous and started winning Grammys.

Samir: Why don't you just go by Mike, instead of Michael?

Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change it? He's the one who sucks.

One of the best movies ever!

"umm yeah... this is bill lumberg again, just letting you know we did start at 9:00am today, it's not one of those half days... um yeah, call me"

"Did you get the memo?"

My favorite is the opening scene where the old man in the walker is passing up freeway traffic!

This is a must see for anyone who's ever worked in an office or ever plans on working in an office, or anyone who doesn't want to work in an office! So it's for everyone!

I make the " O face " whenever I even think of working in an office. Do people really talk absolute bullshit in meetings like they did for bullshit bingo ?

At a school I used to work at we used to award secret honorary degrees for ' Educational psycho-babble mumbo-jumbo ' after some staff meetings ...

Funny movie. I particularly liked the way the boss always had his trusty coffee cup in hand.
