ā€œI did absolutely nothing. And it was everything I thought it could be.ā€

From: Office Space

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Peter Gibbons

The story behind the quote: Office Space is a cult classic movie from Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butt-head. The story generally focuses of a group of frustrated office workers who work for Initech, a software company. Peter Gibbons, a rather meek person, gets hypnotized to a state of complete relaxation. Even though he openly shows his distaste for working at Initech due to being hypnotized, he’s the one that gets to keep his job while his friends get downsized.

The quote comes near the start of the film when Peter Gibbons (played by Ron Livingston) after he was hypnotized. He was supposed to work over the weekend but, because he was told to relax while under hypnosis, he didn’t. His friend then asks him what he did when he was told to work. This is when Peter gives the quote.

Geek wisdom: There is indeed a certain joy to spend some time for yourself and not think about any of responsibility. Sometimes, it can be the best thing you can do for yourself is to just concentrate on having as much fun as you can to take care of your well-being.
