          Eight, Bob

          Peter Gibbons: You see, Bob, it's not that I'm lazy, it's that I just don't even care.

          Bob Porter: Don't- don't care?

          Peter Gibbons: It's a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my *ss off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don't see another dime, so where's the motivation? And here's another thing, I have eight different bosses right now.

          Bob Slydell: I beg your pardon?

          Peter Gibbons: Eight bosses, Bob.

          Bob Porter: Eight?

          Peter Gibbons: Eight, Bob. So that means when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That's my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.
