* After his meeting with the Bobs, Peter decides to just leave the office. On his way out he encounters Lumbergh, who greets him with a standard "Oh. Peter. What's happening?", expecting Peter to stop and talk to him. Peter however just sidesteps and continues down the hall toward the exit, leaving Lumbergh standing there looking as if he can't quite process what just happened.

** Bit of FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that Tom's job is to explain things to clientele in terms they would understand. He can't even explain his job to the Bobs in terms they understand. So while his position may not be useless, ''he'' is. Or he could just be flustered from discovering [[ProperlyParanoid all his fears were correct]].
*** It's not that Tom's bad at his job, it's that the Bobs are bad at theirs. They should be asking him how well he does his job, not making the proposal that engineers could do it, instead. Since this would kill productivity further (the engineers would have to stop fixing code to listen to complaints about the code they need to fix), Tom's not just upset his job's on the line, he's [[EnragedByIdiocy frustrated that the Bobs have no idea what they're doing, but still have the authority to lay him off.]]

--> '''Bob''': What would you say you ''do'' here?\\
'''Tom''': Well, look, I already told you. I deal with the goddamn customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills. I am ''good'' at dealing with people! Can't you understand that?! What the hell is wrong with you people?!
