    This is probably one of the most perfect movies ever made. It just gets funnier every single time I see it. Come on!! I need an SE!! [​IMG]

    As funny as the movie is, it really really scares me! I'm afraid to be like those guys in it. And I'm disgusted with all the 9 to 5 cycle so many people live, and the friday/saturday night hordes rushing to "relax", it's all just so pathetic and reminds me of communism.

    I was reading this thread and my boss came in and said, "There's an email on my computer about [project I'm working on]. If you could take a look at it, that'd be greaeeat." and I laughed out loud at him!

    I think this sums up my last two months pretty well.

    When I first saw this movie, I thought it was so so. In fact, I wanted my money back. But repeated viewings has raised it higher and higher. There isn't a week that goes by without someone referencing this movie. For us office workers, this movie is an anthem. The people I know that don't care for this movie don't work in an office so they cannot relate.

    It's good to see that some the cast is still kicking. In particular: Ron Livingston was in Band of Brothers, a wonderful HBO miniseries about a company of Airborne soldiers during WWII; and John C. McGinley (the tall skinny Bob) is truly amazing as Dr. Cox in the best TV show ever, "Scrubs". Watch 'em both, you won't regret it.

    Peter Gibbons: [Talking about plan to steal from Initech] We have to promise right now we don't tell anybody about this, no friends, no family members, no one but us.

    Samir, Michael Bolton: Agreed

    Lawrence: [From the next apartment through wall] Don't worry man I won't tell anyone either.

    Michael Bolton: What the **** is that.

    Peter Gibbons: Don't worry he's cool.

    Peter Gibbons: He's going to ask me to work on Sunday and I'm going to do it, because I'm a p****, 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 p****.

    Samir: Yes, I am also not a p****.

    Steve: Hi, my name is Steve. I come from a rough area. I used to be addicted to crack but now I am off it and trying to stay clean. That is why I am selling magazine subscriptions.

    Michael Bolton: We're not going to some white collar resort prison. No, no, no! We're going to federal POUND ME IN THE ASS prison!

    Peter Gibbons: What am I gonna do with 40 subscriptions to "Vibe"?

    Bill Lumbergh: Oh, and next Friday...is Hawaiian shirt day...so, you know, if you want to you can go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans.

    Rob Newhouse: You know, minimum security prison is no picnic. I had a client in there once. He said the trick is kick someone's ass the first day, or become somebody's b****. Then everything will be alright.

    [Peter, Michael & Samir are trying to figure out how to launder money]

    Peter Gibbons: I cannot believe what a bunch of losers we are. We're looking up "money laundering" in the dictionary!

    Michael Bolton: You haven't even been showing up for work, and you got to keep your job.

    Peter Gibbons: Actually I'm being promoted.

    Bill Lumbergh: Ahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...

    Peter Gibbons: What if we're...still doin' this when we're fifty?

    Samir: It would be nice to have that kind of job security.

    JamieD : I'd have to agree with you on that one. Looks like someone got their capital confused with their commune [​IMG] .
