More comic relief

In "Broadcast News," head honcho Bill Rorich (played by Jack Nicholson) blames the staff for layoffs and dismisses the idea of minimizing cuts by reducing his own salary.

The Broadcast News clip reminded me of another bit that came shortly afterward from the same executive, Paul Moore:

Paul Moore: Now, if there's anything I can do for you...
Employee: Well, I certainly hope you'll die soon.

From In Good Company:

Carter Duryea: I'm gonna have to let some people go.
Dan Foreman: Why do you say let them go? They don't WANT to go. Why don't you just say fire them?
Carter Duryea: Because it sounds better.
Dan Foreman: Not to the person getting fired it doesn't.

From The Simpsons:

Homer: They said if I came in late again that I would get fired, and I can't risk that, so I'm not going.

From The Amityville Horror:

Lisa: That little shit got me fired.

From The Godfather:

Tessio: Tell Mike it was only business, I always liked him.

From Office Space:

Peter Gibbons: Good luck with your layoffs, all right? I hope your firings go really well.

From Moonstruck:

Johnny: In time you will see that this is the best thing.
Loretta: In time you'll drop dead and I'll come to your funeral in a red dress.
