Reminds me of the scene in 'Mister Roberts' when James Cagney sees Jack Lemon for the first time. 'How long have you been on board?''Eighteen months', replies Lemon. Cagney's incredulity as he replies 'EIGHTEEN MONTHS?' is hilarious.
This, of course, is a version of Milton from Office Space where they kept moving him farther and farther away, except of course, he should have been laid off, but due to a glitch wasn't, so they finally just stopped paying him. PHB could do the same, except it would probably require Bob & Bob to explain it to him.
