NINE TO FIVE:

- She's never worked in her life.

- I thought you'd be sympathetic.

I am sympathetic,

but why do I have to train her?

Let her work in someone else's section.

She's willing, and she needs the job.

She's recently divorced.

And I'm a widow with four kids.

Jerry should never have died.

I'd be better off.

I could have divorced him.

- Is that her?

- Yes.

We'll need a special looker

for the hat.

- This way.

- This is quite a day for me.

- I bet it is.

- I was so exited, I left an hour early.

I'm glad I did. It took me 45 minutes

just to find a parking place.

We park inside the building.

I'll show you how to punch in.

And I just moved to a new apartment

near the airport.

- Hey, Violet. What it is?

- Hi, Eddie.

- Hear anything about your promotion?

- Nothing.

- Eddie Smith.

- Judy Bernly.

- Judy starts work today.

- What?

How am I gonna get out of the mailroom

if they keep hiring outside people?

Lady, you're gonna hate it here.

Judy.

We're on the 12th floor.

Above us is the president

and the chairman of the board.

- Come on, 12.

- It sounds so big.

It is. I've been here 12 years,

I've never seen the chairman.

Twelve years?

All I've done is be a housewife.

I wanted to ask you about salary.

I don't think I own live...

That's a touchy subject.

Take it up with our boss, Mr. Hart.

I'm sorry. It's all so new.

Don't worry. You'll get the hang

of it. Then you'll really be sorry.

Come on.

Well, welcome to the frontlines.

- Here oozes General Patton.

- Violet, just a moment.

- Come on.

- Just a moment!

- Violet?

- Yes. Roz. So sorry.

I need to talk to you about Mr. Hart's

rules on office dcor.

- You seem lax in your section.

- Really? How?

Well, I have typed it up here.

No coffee cups on the desks, no

personal items left in view. Photos...

...plants, et cetera.

We mustn't look cluttered or sloppy.

An office that looks efficient

is efficient, as Mr. Hart says.

- Hello.

- Judy Bernly, Roz Keith.

Roz is Mr. Hart's administrative

assistant. Judy is starting today.

- It's nice to meet you.

- Welcome to Consolidated.

I hope you enjoy it here.

- We're all a pretty happy bunch.

- I think so.

- Put this on the bulletin board.

- I know just where to stick it.

Good. And Judy, if there is anything

I can do to help you, just drop on by.

Thank you.

Roz is Mr. Hart's

eyes, ears, nose and throat.

- Anything she hears, he hears.

- You mean, she's a company spy?

If you gossip in the ladies' room,

check under the stalls for her shoes.

Happy birthday, Myra.

She and Roz are like this:

This section has three zones,

each with a supervisor.

The other two supervisors report to me.

I go to Mr. Hart.

That's his office.

He was just made vice president.

I've never seen anyone

leapfrog so fast to the top.

And I have the bad back to prove it.

Margaret, anything serious?

- Nothing so far.

- Margaret, please. Roz is on my case.

Sorry.

I remember when he was

just a management trainee.

I'm the one who trained him.

What's he like?

I like to think, if there's a word to

describe my philosophy of business...

...it's "teamwork."

Everybody working together.

You girls, of course, never got a

chance to play football or baseball...

...and I've always felt that's

unfortunate, because I think...

...it's the best place to learn

what teamwork is about.

I remember Coach Frye

used to tell us:

"A chain is only as strong

as its weakest link."

Its weakest link.

I gotta get this chair fixed. I'm not

gonna bore you with a long harangue.

Suffice to say that it is a jungle out
