About This Quiz

"Office Space" has one of the largest cult followings of any small-budget movie made. Why? Well, you know exactly why! This is the first movie that fits exactly what you sleepily walk into every morning at the office. Forget the TOS reports! Forget the annoying receptionist or your boss who uses a passive-aggressive guilt trip to get you to work on the weekends. Work is about only one thing, and that's making sure you know where your red stapler is every single moment of the day. 

With changes coming, Peter and his friends try to think of a way to get back at the company. Do you remember how much money the guys were able to steal in only a few days? It's a shocker. But, when printers act up the way they do, who hasn't wanted to retaliate a bit? Oh, and speaking of printers, do you remember the error message Mike keeps coming across on the printer that leads to its ultimate demise? Speaking of Mike, which famous musical artist did he share a name with? Answer these questions and you might not do too bad.

Just remember, the most important thing while taking this quiz is to make sure you know where your stapler is - that's always the most important thing in your day.
