Episode Summary

EDIT
The Pointy-Haired Boss appears in an infomercial for the Gruntmaster 6000, but the head injury he suffers during the taping makes him a singing psychic. Dilbert says it's too early for an infomercial, as they haven't done any testing of the new version with its Graviton generator. The Pointy-Haired Boss informs him that they've sent the only prototype for consumer testing to a typical family in Squiddler's Patch, Texas. When the Gruntmaster is activated a black hole is formed.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Dilbert: Give us two of whatever you've touched the least.
        Chef: Gotcha. Two soaps.

      • Garbage Man: It's always garbage day somewhere.

      • Wally: It's my ultimate fantasy. Everyone is bald and poorly dressed, and if you hadn't noticed no one is doing anything that looks like work. It's utopia.

      • Alice: Dilbert, this is stupid. He's been talking nonsense for years and no one thought he was psychic before. The only difference is now he has his eyes closed.

      • Dilbert: (to Dogbert) The mute button only works on the TV.

      • Pointy-Haired Boss: It depends on whose story you believe, mine or the truth.

      • Dogbert: History is written by the winners.

      • Dilbert: Oh my God, my worst fear has come true!
        Dogbert: You mean a pregnant spider crawled up your nose while you were sleeping and laid eggs in your head?
        Dilbert: Okay, my second worst fear.

      • Alice: Cooked by explosion. Didn't the boss say that?
        Dilbert: Yeah, but he was just babbling.
        Wally: Or was he?
        Alice: What are you saying, that he predicted this would happen?
        Wally: I dunno, am I?
        Dilbert: Predicting the future is impossible.
        Wally: Is it?
        Dilbert: Yes, it violates causality. There is no way to know something will occur until it occurs.
        Wally: Or is there?
        Alice: If you don't stop asking retorical questions, I'm going to kill you.
        Wally: Are you?
        Alice: (shoving Wally's head into the popcorn) Rrrrr!

      • Dilbert: I hear you can tell a place is okay if the truckers eat there.
        (three truckers throw up on road)

      • Random Bossist #1: He's a witch!
        The Amazing Rudolf: No, just a skilled illusionist. That is my point.
        Random Bossist #2: If you're just an illusionist, tell us how you made a bird appear.
        The Amazing Rudolf: A magician never reveals his tricks. I'm bound by the magician's code of ethics.
        Random Bossist #1: Well that's awfully convenient, isn't it? That sounds like something a witch would say!
        Random Bossist #2: Kill the witch!
