** The reason Bob is so strict about the kind of pencil Alice uses is because the agency computer can't read the form unless it's filled out in #2 Yellow pencil lead.

** Bob's work is shown to have a purpose. While annoying to deal with the forms and meticulous tracking along with him spotting and reporting irregularities has resulted in the discovery of three spies and four embezzlers in a year. He isn't quite enough to be a BadassBureaucrat but he is far from useless.


Added DiffLines:

* '''Implied''': Productivity remains the same or unchanged during a strike.


Added DiffLines:

* '''Played For Drama''': Alice is trying to get forms to prove Charlie's innocence and save him from a wrongful execution.

** When Alice explains that she doesn't have time for filling out forms right now, Bob cooperates and gives her a weapon without the paperwork. But then Bob complains to Alice' boss that Alice took a weapon without permission and demands that she is punished. However, Alice's boss understood that the situation was an emergency, and punishes Bob instead. The boss then makes a change to the official guidelines of the organization to prevent this from happening again, but Betty does it anyway to Alex, using LoopholeAbuse to avoid punishment and punish Alex.
