** On the OTHER other hand, Lumbergh did want to fire Peter (possibly because he insulted him, but still) it was the Bob's who wanted to promote Peter and fire Michael and Samir.

* GoneHorriblyRight: "Well, technically, it ''did'' work." Instead of siphoning off undetectably small percentages of Initech's money transfers-- fractions of a penny-- into the protagonists' bank account, Samir's virus is off by a decimal place, dumping amounts sure to be missed.

* MemeticMutation: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PywI0BOxJpI The printer scene]], arguably the most-known scene to everyone who hasn't watched the film. Parodied by [[WesternAnimation/{{Family Guy}} Family Guy]] [[https://youtu.be/PywI0BOxJpI?t=1m27s here]] and [[WebVideo/{{Smosh}} Smosh]] [[https://youtu.be/f_ql-ZBJ8uI?t=2m23s here]]

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: While the events of the film would probably prevent Initech from being able to track Peter down internally, he still had his photo taken at the ATM. Given that none of the participants had the rank at Initech to open an account in the bank's name (they're engineers, not bursars), and given how quickly the account drew money from Initech, it's likely that Peter should be expecting a visit from the FDIC over his obvious attempt at embezzlement.

* AmericanAccents: Creator/DiedrichBader puts on a fair Texan accent as Lawrence, but he's the only character that has one despite the film taking place in Texas.

* MisplacedADecimalPoint: The cause of the plan's failure was Michael misplacing a decimal point, apparently. This results in far too much money being siphoned off. He claims that he always makes these kind of mistakes.

This results in far too much money being siphoned off.Instead of siphoning off a couple hundred thousand dollars over several years, which would be easily overlooked with a company that does business with a bank, it does that over a couple of days and raising plenty of red flags. He claims that he always makes these kind of mistakes.

* ExactWords: When the two Bobs discuss who they're going to fire:
--> '''Bob''': Here's a peculiar... uh, Milton Waddams.\\
'''Lumberg''': Who's he?\\
'''Bob''': You know, squirrelly looking guy. Mumbles a lot.\\
'''Lumberg''': Oh, yeah.\\
'''Bob''': We... we can't actually find a record of him being a current employee here.\\
'''Bob''': I looked into it more deeply, and I found that apparently what happened is that he was laid off five years ago and no one ever told him about it, but through some kind of glitch in the payroll department, he still gets a paycheck. So we just went ahead and fixed the glitch.\\
'''Lumberg''': Great. So, uh, Milton has been let go?\\
'''Bob''': Just a second there, professor. We, uh, we ''fixed the glitch''. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore. So it'll just work itself out naturally.\\
'''Bob''': We always like to avoid confrontation whenever possible.\\
'''Bob''': The problem is solved from your end.
