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."

PETER:

I gotta get out of here. I think I'm gonna lose it.

NINA:

Uh oh. Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays.

[Scene Chotchkie's. They're sitting at a booth thing.]

PETER:

Boy. I tell ya, one of these days... One of these days it's gonna be

like

He mimics a machine gun. Brian, a waiter, does it too, in Peter's face.

BRIAN:

(LAUGHS)

SO CAN I GET YOU GENTLEMEN SOMETHING MORE TO DRINK? OR MAYBE SOMETHING

TO NIBBLE ON? SOME PIZZA SHOOTERS, SHRIMP POPPERS, OR EXTREME FAJITAS.

PETER:

Just coffee.

BRIAN:

Oh. Sounds like a case of the Mondays.

He goes to take some more orders.

PETER:

What if we're still doing this when we're 50?

SAMIR:

It could be nice to have that kind of job security.

PETER:

Lumbergh's gonna have me work on Saturday, I, I can tell already. I'm

doing it because, because, uh, I'm a big pussy. Which is why I work at

Initech to begin with.

MICHAEL:

Uh, I work at Initech and I don't consider myself a pussy, ok?

SAMIR:

Yes, I am also not a pussy.

MICHAEL:

I'm gonna find out the hard way that I'm not a pussy if they don't

start treating us software people better.

SAMIR:

That's right.

MICHAEL:

They don't understand. I could come up with a program that could rip

that place off big time…big time.

PETER:

Yeah.

Cut to Joanna, a pretty waitress.

Cut back to the guys.

PETER:

Oh, there she is.

SAMIR:

Peter, you, you always talk about this girl. If you're so obsessed with

her, why don't you just ask her out?

PETER:

Because I'm just another asshole customer. You can't just walk up to a

waitress and ask her out.

(cut to Joanna, and back to them)

Plus, I'm still trying to work it out with Anne. Oh, that reminds me.

I'm not going to be able to play poker with you guys on Friday.
