Office Space is Ten Years Old…A Look Back on the Most Memorable Scenes

Director and producer Mike Judge is set to release his new movie Extract on September 4. The movie looks like it will be funny but I doubt anything he does will match up to his first movie, Office Space , which is now 10 years old in 2009. So in honor of ten years of one of the greatest comedies of this generation, here are some of the most memorable Office Space quotes and scenes.

My “O” Face: Drew is in this movie for no more than two minutes but delivers one of the best lines of the movie.

The Bobs: Two of my favorite lines are from this scene:

Peter Gibbons:
“It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care
Bob: I’ll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I’m a Michael Bolton fan. For my money, I don’t know if it gets any better than when he sings “When a Man Loves a Woman”.

Opening Traffic Scene:Nerdy Michael Bolton jams out to a Scarface tune, then stops suddenly when he sees a black guy coming his way.

Tom Smykowski, Jump to Conclusions Mat: Peter Gibbons pretends to be interested when Smykowski tells everyone his million dollar idea.

“Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta” and “Down for Whatever” montages:
Two great scenes played to gangsta rap (could only find one online)

Fax Machine: Probably the best scene in the movie. Michael Bolton, Samir and Peter take out their frustration on the fax machine on their last day of work.

Other great scenes I couldn’t find video for

Lawrence says what he’d do if he had a million dollars:
lawrence-office space

“I’ll tell you what I’d do man… two chicks at the same time man”… and if I think if I were a millionare I could hook that up.

Milton rambling about his desk and squirrels:
“And I said, I don’t care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I’m, I’m quitting, I’m going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they’ve moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler then I’ll set the building on fire”

Peter sees the Psychologist:
“So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.”

Have any others? Be sure to comment about it!
