Office Space script
Office Space (1999)
Synopsis: Corporate drone Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) hates his soul-killing job at software company Initech. While undergoing hypnotherapy, Peter is left in a blissful state when his therapist dies in the middle of their session. He refuses to work overtime, plays games at his desk and unintentionally charms two consultants into putting him on the management fast-track. When Peter's friends learn they're about to be downsized, they hatch a revenge plot against the company inspired by "Superman III."

Dom nods.

DOM:

Yeah. It's just that we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS

reports before now before they go out now. So I'd really appreciate it

if you could just remember to do that. from now on. That'd be great.

He walks away. Peter's phone rings and he answers it.

PETER:

Peter Gibbons. (listens) Yes. (listens) I have the memo.

[Scene Another part of the room. Paper jams in the printer.]

SAMIR:

Oh no! Not again! Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper

jam?!! I, I swear to God, one of these days, I, I, I just kick this

piece of shit out the window!!!

MICHAEL:

you and me both, man. The thing is lucky I'm not armed.

Samir grabs the paper out, tearing off the bottom part of it.

SAMIR:

Piece of shit!!

Nina comes with papers.

NINA:

Sam...ire...Na...Na...Naga...

Samir gets it.

NINA:

Uh-huh!

SAMIR:

Please.

He sits in his and Michael's cubicle.

NINA:

Michael… - (Michael reaches for it) Bolton?

MICHAEL:

That's me.

NINA:

Wow! Is that your real name?

MICHAEL:

Yeah.

NINA:

So are you related to the singer guy?

MICHAEL:

No, it's just a coincidence.

SAMIR:

How come no one in this country can pronounce my name right? It's Na-

gee-een-ah-jah. Nagaenajar

MICHAEL:

At least your name isn't Michael Bolton.

SAMIR:

Michael, there's nothing wrong with that name.

MICHAEL:

There was nothing wrong with it. Until I was about nine years old and

that no-talent assclown became famous and started winning Grammys.

SAMIR:

Well, why don't just go by Mike, instead of Michael?

MICHAEL:

WHY SHOULD I CHANGE IT? HE'S THE ONE WHO SUCKS.

Peter comes up to their cubicle.

PETER:

HEY GUYS.

MICHAEL:

What's up G?

PETER:

Wanna go to Chotchkie's, get some coffee?

SAMIR:

It's a little early...
