    • TRIVIA (2)

      • LOOK HARD: Dick from Procurement's vices include--slurping cofffee loudly, stealing office supplies, leaving toilet seat up at home, leaving toilet seat up at work, taking the last 3 donuts, and smashing Dilbert's window. You can read them if you pause when Dilbert is printing Dick's profile.

      • On the first shot of Dogbert's float, Wally stands next to him, fanning.

        In every other shot, you can no longer see Wally fanning Dogbert.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Pointy-Haired Boss: I remember, you know, when I was a child, the first time my dad gave me the jewel-encrusted dagger to plunge into the heart of the young virgin. Her name was June, I think. At one time we had talked of marriage, but when she was dead, we rarely spoke of it anymore. It's funny how life works out.

      • Alice: I've got a card for Jennifer's wedding, a congratulations card for Mike's baby, three birthdays, and a gender-change operation card that says "Get Well" and then on the inside says "...Hung". Cute!

      • Dogbert: I think it stems from my religious belief that everyone exists for the sole purpose of entertaining me.

      • Dilbert: We have too many holidays. We have more holidays than days. And if we're not celebrating a holiday, we're planning for the next one or we're recovering from the last one. We spend all our time giving cards to people we don't know, decorating cakes for people we don't care about, or buying presents for people we don't even like enough to have as friends outside of work.
        Wally: That reminds me, thanks for the cufflinks.
        Dilbert: Oh, you're welcome. It seems that someone invents a new holiday every day, holidays that don't make sense, for reasons we don't understand. It's made all holidays meaningless.

      • Dilbert: (talking to Alice) Be sure to ski near the trees, it's more fun that way.

      • Dilbert: Do you think anyone will catch onto the fact that the entire Dogbert Day holiday is designed for the sole purpose of being annoying?
        Dogbert: No one caught on when I created National Secretary's Day.
        Dilbert: I wondered who came up with that.

      • Dick: (after being crushed by Dogbert's float) So... cold.

      • Texas Senator: (in a near-incomprehensible hillbilly accent) Mistah Dogbert, what I hear is, y'all from the 'sociation of beer-drinkin' dynamite users, is that right?
        Dogbert: I don't know if the rest of you heard it, but I think he just confessed to being a communist.
        Texas Senator: Ah'm not a communist!

      • Dogbert: I said I was a lobbyist for the APWDBUD.
        Dilbert: The Association of People Who Drink Beer and Use Dynamite?
        Dogbert: Exactly. Congress is trying to squelch their freedom of speech.
        Dilbert: Freedom of speech? What exactly are people who drink beer and use dynamite trying to say?
