  • Peter's meeting with the Bobs, post-hypnosis. He's calm and polite the entire time, but he meticulously lays out what's wrong with Initech and gets himself on track for a promotion. Not only are the Bobs delighted by his honesty, they start looking into Limburgh's managerial habits immediately after.
  • Our intrepid heroes vent their frustration with a printer/copier by taking it out into a field and going medieval on its ass, followed by Samir breakdancing, all to the tune of Geto Boys "Still" (Youtube link).
  • Also of note is Milton finally going through with his promise to burn the building down.
    • And, as mentioned on the main page, anyone familiar with the SNL animated shorts has heard him make this promise for damn near a decade, making it even more awesome.
  • A post-hypnosis Peter gets a call from Anne, who starts bitching him out on the phone for just sitting there while Dr. Swanson dies, and quickly transitions to embarrassing her in front of her friends. Having had enough of the stress, Peter just hangs up on her. Anne quickly calls back and harshly breaks up with him, while Peter just lets the machine get that and just goes right back to bed, perfectly content.
    • Just to pile on the awesome, he marches right into the Chotchkie's the next day and asks out Joanna.
      • The way he does it is pretty awesome, telling her that he's going next door to get a table and if she wants to join him that's great, but if she doesn't that's perfectly fine too. It puts no pressure on her and comes off as unbelievably cool and confident.
    • It also calls into question why she brought her friends to his therapy session.
  • Peter telling off Nina the "Corporate accounts payable, Nina speaking. Just a moment..." girl, in a scene that sadly didn't make the final cut of the film.
  • Hell, just the scene where Peter just blithely walks past Lumbergh as he's asking Peter to come in on Saturday. It's the first time the audience sees Lumbergh actually flustered.

  • The scene where Joanna quits Chotchkie's. Because let's face it...haven't we all had jobs where we felt like doing that?
