Office Space
Release: February 21, 1999

Peter Gibbons is a typical corporate everyman that hates his job and his life. He works for Innotech updating computer software for the new millennium amongst a sea of cubicles. He eats lunch at the same restaurant everyday, drives a mid-size car and lives in a duplex with walls so thin that he can talk with his neighbor through them. Then one day after seeing a shrink he snaps. He adopts an attitude of total disinterest and completely stops truing just as a team of experts are brought in to perform large-scale layoffs. He becomes only interested in the blond waitress from Chotchky. Written for the Screen & Directed by Mike Judge; Based on his Milton animated shorts produced for NBC's 'Saturday Night Live'. A Twentieth Century Fox presentation.

Peter Gibbons: "He represents all that is soulless and wrong! And you slept with him!"
Peter Gibbons: "Hey, he helped Anne lose weight."
Samir: "Peter, she's anorexic!"
Peter Gibbons: "Yeah, he's really good"
Peter Gibbons: "That's what I'm talkin' about when I talk about America!"
Michael Bolton: "I'm a free man and I haven't had a conjugal visit in six months."
Nina: "Corporate accounts payable, Nina speaking. Just a moment."
Peter Gibbons: "Not right now, Lumbergh, I'm kinda busy. In fact, look, I'm gonna have to ask you to just go ahead and come back another time. I got a meeting with the Bobs in a couple of minutes"
Peter Gibbons: "Say hello to Lumbergh for me!"
Peter Gibbons: "So you guys are gonna fire Mike and Samir, and you're gonna give me more money?"
Michael Bolton: "You think the pet rock was a really great idea?"
Milton Waddams: "The ratio of people to cake is too big."
Michael Bolton: "Samir and I are the best programmers they got at that place. You haven't been showing up and you get to keep your job."
Peter Gibbons: "Actually, I'm being promoted."
Peter Gibbons: "Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday and you're not feeling real well, does anyone ever say to you, sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays?"
Peter Gibbons: "I can't believe what a bunch of nerds we are. We're looking up money laundering in a dictionary."
Milton Waddams: "I was told that I could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven, I told Bill that if Sandra is going to listen to her headphones while she's filing then I should be able to listen to the radio while I'm collating so I don't see why I should have to turn down the radio because I enjoy listening at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven."
Bill Lumbergh: "Oh, and remember"
Peter Gibbons: "What am I gonna do with 40 subscriptions to Vibe?"
Milton Waddams: "Excuse me? Excuse me, senor? May I speak to you please? I asked for a mai tai, and they brought me a pina colada, and I said no salt, no salt for the margarita, but it had salt on it, big grains of salt, floating in the glass."
Bill Lumbergh: "Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?"
Milton Waddams: "Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler."
Bob Slydell: "We find it's always better to fire people on a Friday. Studies have statistically shown that there's less chance of an incident if you do it at the end of the week."
Bob Porter: "I looked into it more deeply and I found that apparently what happened is that he was laid off five years ago and no one ever told him about it; but through some kind of glitch in the payroll department, he still gets a paycheck."
Bob Slydell: "So we just went ahead and fixed the glitch."
