[Tom is on the phone speaking to who he believes is Curt, but he's really speaking to Brad]
Listen, Curt, I'm not saying competition is a bad thing, OK. I mean, certainly it's got its good points. I mean you don't want to turn out like 'Sadly I'm Bradley' or anything.
Sadly, I'm Bradley.

But I still stand by what an enjoyable movie this is. It's still one of my favorites. After viewing it so much i even got used to the strange edits that nobody besides me seems to notice anyway. But after working a summer job in an office from 8-4 I understood the comparisons Gary Burns was making a lot better (being as I usually work as a labourer, often outside). The whole thing about not being able to go outside, feeling like ants in Tom's Ant Farm, feeling like the air is being sucked out from in front of you, and most importantly: being stuck around people you don't really like and who's behaviour you'd probably change if you could. This movie is much recommended if you're in an office job when you'd rather be doing something else.
