Office Space (1999) Poster


Stephen Root: Milton



  • Milton Waddams : [talking on the phone]  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 merry, 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...

  • Milton Waddams : The ratio of people to cake is too big.

  • [last lines] 

    Milton Waddams : Excuse me? Excuse me, senor? May I speak to you please? I asked for a mai tai, and they brought me a pina colada, and I said no salt, NO salt for the margarita, but it had salt on it, big grains of salt, floating in the glass...

    Mexican Waiter : Lo siento mucho, senor.

    [Under his breath] 

    Mexican Waiter : Pinche gringo.

    Milton Waddams : [as the waiter walks away]  And yes, I won't be leaving a tip, 'cause I could... I could shut this whole resort down. Sir? I'll take my traveler's checks to a competing resort. I could write a letter to your board of tourism and I could have this place condemned. I could put... I could put... strychnine in the guacamole. There was salt on the glass, BIG grains of salt.

  • Bill Lumbergh : Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?

    Milton Waddams : Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...

  • Nina : Now Milton, don't be greedy, let's pass it along and make sure everyone gets a piece.

    Milton Waddams : Yeah, but last time I didn't receive a piece. And I was told...

    Nina : Just pass.

    [while the cake passes Milton mutters - eventually everybody but Milton gets a piece] 

    Milton Waddams : [muttering]  I could set the building on fire.

  • Milton Waddams : I was told that I could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven, I told Bill that if Sandra is going to listen to her headphones while she's filing then I should be able to listen to the radio while I'm collating so I don't see why I should have to turn down the radio because I enjoy listening at a reasonable volume from nine to eleven.

  • Milton Waddams : Mr. Lumbergh told me to talk to payroll and then payroll told me to talk to Mr. Lumbergh and I still haven't received my paycheck and he took my stapler and he never brought it back and then they moved my desk to storage room B and there was garbage on it...
