"This is me expressing myself, okay?"

Office Space is a 1999 comedy film directed by Mike Judge. Ron Livingston stars as Peter Gibbons, a disgruntled computer programmer rebelling against his micromanaging boss Bill Lumbergh (Gary Cole) and the white-collar corporation for which he works. This oft-quoted movie has been parodied a few times in the Homestar Runner body of work.


  • Hairstyle RunnerOne hairstyle in the Gallery is captioned, "that guy from office space", referring to Lawrence (Diedrich Bader).
  • Fan Stuff — One of the fan submissions includes another Hairstyle Runner (complete with Homestar's body) featuring a Lawrence-style hairdo. The caption quotes Lawrence: "Hey Peter man check out channel 9, check out this chick!"
  • The InterviewHomestar Runner uses Lumbergh's "Yeah, that'd be great" line.
  • Email lady fan — Strong Bad says "I'm gonna go ahead and need you to...", a play on Lumbergh's catchphrase.
  • Sample of Style Too — Matt uses two of Lumbergh's catchphrases when he says to Ryan "if you could go ahead and... take the blame for all of this, that would be— that would be great."
  • Strong Bad Email Menu — The Corpy NT6 menu (released alongside imaginary) had the page title "Flinger's Menu". Flinger's is a fictional restaurant from the movie.
  • Haunted Photo Booth — Marzipan dresses up as Joanna (Jennifer Aniston). A waitress from Chotchkie's, the restaurant requires all the serving staff to wear a minimum of 15 pins ("flair") on their uniforms. Homestar's "We need to talk [...] Don't you want to express yourself?" references a discussion Joanna's manager has with her, while Marzipan's "invisible flair deuce" reaction references a later scene where Joanna quits her job.
  • 2022 Costume Pack Now AvailableBubs dresses up as the sticky note-covered man from the movie's poster. Although this figure does not appear in the movie, he featured prominently in the marketing much to the consternation of the filmmakers. Marzipan says "Corporate accounts payable, Marzipan speaking, just a moment" referencing Nina's line from the film. Bubs says "PC load letter?" referencing Michael Bolton's line expressing his frustration with the malfunctioning printer (which then appears as an alternate version of the Heavy Lourde).
