People I respect... heroes of mine would be, Bob Hope. Umm, Abraham Lincoln definitely. Bono... and probably God would be the fourth one. And I just think, all those people helped, the world in so many ways that it's umm really beyond words. It's incalcucable.
My proudest moment here was not when I increased profits by 17%, or cut expenditure without losing a single member of staff. No, no no. It was a young Guatamalan guy, first job in the country, hardly spoke a word of English, but he came to me, and said, 'Mr. Scott, will you be, the Godfather to my child?' Wow... wow. Didn't work out in the end. We had to let him go. He sucked.
People say I'm the best boss. They go, 'God, we've never worked in a place like this. You're hilarious, and you get the best out of us.' [lifts up 'World's Best Boss' coffee mug] Um, I think that pretty much sums it up. [pauses] I found it at Spencer Gifts.
I don't think it would be the worst thing if they let me go. Because then I might- I just- I don't think it's many little girls' dream to be a receptionist. Um. I like to do illustrations. Mostly watercolor, a few oil pencil. Um, Jim thinks they're good!
[Talking to Pam]As you know, there is going to be downsizing. And you have made my life so much easier, in that, I am going to have to let you go first.
Why? Well, theft, and stealing.
Stealing? Um...what am I supposed to have stolen?
Post-it notes? What are those 50 cents?
Yeah, well, you steal a thousand Post-it notes at 50 cents a piece, and, you know, you've made a profit... margin, you're going to run us out of business Pam.
Are you serious?
Yeah, I am.
Um...I can't believe this. I mean, I've never even stolen a paperclip and now you're firing me.
The best thing about this is that, we're not going to have to give you any severance pay. Because... that is... gross miss conduct and uh, just clean out your desk. Sorry. [Pam starts crying][After a long pause] You've been X-Punked! Surprise! It's a joke. We were joking around! See? Okay, he was in on it, he was my accomplice. [Ryan shaking his head] And it was kind of a moral booster thing. And we were showing the new guy around, and, kinda giving him the feel of the place.
