Office Space Movie Quotes

Friday, April 8 by ShawnD

"Office Space" takes a look at life in the corporate world for those living on the bottom of the food chain, so when you get tired of life in a cubicle, learn from the simple wisdom of these "Office Space" movie quotes. Not every quote from the movie "Office Space" is as deep as the movie's message, but like most good comedies, the lines are funny both in and out of context.

  1. "I could set the building on fire." – Milton Waddams. Milton offers this piece of foreshadowing after he fails to get a piece of birthday cake, in one of the best scenes in "Office Space." It  will take a bit more pushing, but eventually he finds a good reason to burn the place to the ground.
  2. "If things go well, I might be showing her my O-face. Oh-Oh-Oh!" – Drew. Thanks to "Office Space's" resident freak for bringing the "O-face" into the modern office lexicon.
  3. "I'll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I'm a Michael Bolton fan." – Bob Slydell. This is the very last thing you want the person who can fire you to say. In fact, it is close to the last thing you want anyone in your life to say.
  4. "I told those fudge-packers I liked Michael Bolton's music." – Michael Bolton. This is why the last quote is one of the worst things you can ever hear.
  5. "Corporate accounts payable, Nina speaking. Just a moment." – Nina. Just when you thought your Monday couldn't get any worse, you get to listen to this quote, non-stop, all day. It's enough to make you lose your mind, or at least run across the street for a late breakfast.
  6. "I'm a free man and I haven't had a conjugal visit in six months." – Michael Bolton. Maybe prison life isn't so bad after all, at long as it isn't federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.
  7. "Yeah, well, that may be. But at least I never slept with Lumbergh." – Peter Gibbons. Never throw your current partner's exes in their face, especially when you are thinking about the wrong Lumbergh.
  8. "We're gonna be getting rid of these people here… First, Mr. Samir Naga… Naga… Naga… Not gonna work here anymore, anyway" – Bob Porter. If you want to keep your job in today's cutthroat business culture, like that in "Office Space," get a last name the consultants can pronounce.
  9. "You should come over and watch 'Kung Fu' tonight." – Peter Gibbons. Greatest pickup line ever.
  10. "Just remember, if you hang in there long enough, good things can happen in this world. I mean, look at me." – Tom Smykowski. This quote would probably hold more weight if the person who uttered it wasn't in a full body cast from a failed suicide attempt.
