*** That leads to some ACI on the Bobs themselves. They've interviewed dozens or hundreds of employees, most of them likely lying about their work ethic or accomplishments or daily routine or how they feel the company is doing, clearly interested in saving their own job. Then in comes Peter, telling absolute truth to them about how Initech has serious problems and he has no incentive to help beyond his job description. There's a good chance they feel he's someone who can help turn the company around by actively fixing problems rather than push them aside or cover them up like others.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: You know that plan to rip off the company with endless micro-transitions? Aside from being an homage to ''Film/SupermanIII'', [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17370_7-completely-unrealistic-movie-plots-that-came-true.html someone tried that themselves]]. It's common enough that it's got a name. Check out [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salami_slicing Salami slicing]] on [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]]. It's even funnier than that when you consider this quote by Michael Bolton: "And a bunch of hackers in the 70s tried it as well. One of them got busted."

* Tearjerker: Funny as the movie is, it's essentially kicked off because Peter was traumatized seeing a man die of a heart-attack in front of him, and what snaps him out of it is his two closest friends getting undeservedly fired.
* ValuesDissonance: Due to high unemployment rates in recent years, Peter's constant whining about how much he hates his job has made him look pretty unsympathetic to some people. This is even lampshaded by Samir, when Peter asks "What if we're still doing this when we're 50?" and Samir says "It would be nice to have that kind of job security." That being said...

* ValuesDissonance: Due to the economic recession of 2008 and the shaky recovery since (marked by high unemployment rates and difficulty many have had in recent years, finding sustainable employment), Peter's constant whining about how much he hates his job has made him look pretty unsympathetic to some people. This is even lampshaded by Samir, when Peter asks "What if we're still doing this when we're 50?" and Samir says "It would be nice to have that kind of job security." That being said...

* FridgeBrilliance: Milton's ramblings about his stapler are actually ''accurate.'' The Swingline brand stapler is a far more reliable model than the cheaper, flimsier Bostedge brand. Also counts as FridgeHorror when you realize that you've been working a white collar office job long enough to appreciate that... The cake scene also makes sense in regards of Milton once you realize [[spoiler:that Milton has ceased being an actual employee long before that point.]]

* CultClassic: For almost anyone who has ever worked at a white collar office job. Hell, anyone who has ever had a job in a professional career field, blue or white collar, can in some way identify with the numerous annoyances the main characters are forced to put up with at Initech. Or anyone who has any idea what a job in a professional workplace might be like.
