ROUND 5!

Well, that's it! Good job employees. especially buu441, Elios, kitty-cat, and koin_era345! I assume Yuffie's vote didn't get saved.

Since I know everyone was REALLY looking forward to the psych question, here it is (with no twist):
This question is based off of the 1980 film "9 to 5". Which character can you relate to the most: Judy Bernly (played by Jane Fonda), Violet Newstead (played by Lily Tomlin), or Doralee Rhodes (played by Dolly Parton)?

I think next time I'll stay away from the pop culture stuff. I didn't quite realize how unfamiliar the shows and movies I had were.

I'll go ahead and start another game. Maybe I'll see some of you there.

P.S. Don't forget to rate the game based on how I did. I strive for the highest score, so if you think improvements need to be made please let me know.

Rhythmic, I think it's because a lot of us are too young to have watched them. I don't watch many movies myself, but it was a great game!

We won! Yay! (Turns out JJ wasn't anything. ) Good job everybody!

Good work guys and congrats to buu, elios, kitty and koin! It's a pity that Yuffie didn't win, though ...

Oh, yay! Great game, everyone.

You did a really good job, Izzie - I only voted for you because I didn't think it was buu. And I can kinda see what custard was trying to do last round, but at that point he was just supporting others joining a majority. Too little, too late.

Yuffie: Aww! Not fair. D: We'll all still count you a winner. Here!

Rhy: I'd like to hear the rest of the questions you had. I'd answer the "9 to 5" question, but I've never seen the movie (but now the SONG is stuck in my head - thanks a lot! ). Oh, and top marks for you, my dear sir. Great game as always!

Ok. The last 4 questions that the boss wasn't asked:

This question is based off of the 1999 movie "Office Space". Which of these people would you most like to hang out with at a company mixer: Peter Gibbons, Milton Waddams, Bill Lumbergh, Michael Bolton, Samir Nagheenanajar, Tom Smykowski, Nina, or Drew? What would you do or talk about?

Was Tess McGill from the 1988 film "Working Girl" or Brantley Foster from the 1987 film "Secret of My Success" more justified in her / his deceitful actions? Why?

This question is based off of the television show "True Jackson VP" (2008 - 2011) and the television show "Hannah Montana" (2006 - 2011). Does Max Madigan of Mad Style or Rico Suave of Rico's Surf Shop run a better business? How so?

Would you prefer to have Murphy Brown from the television show "Murphy Brown", Carla Tortelli from the television show "Cheers", Bill McNeal from the television show "NewsRadio", or Roy Trenneman from the television show "The I.T. Crowd" working for you as an employee? Why?

Hands down, didn't even have to think about it: Milton Waddams. I had a similar experience to what he went through at one of my previous jobs. I got stuffed into a corner and pretty much forgotten about; no one ever updated me on anything that was going on (like, for example, that they were doing away with my position). So yeah, he and I would have fabulous talks about downsizing, office communications, disrespectful overseers, and - of course - staplers. (Mine was blue! )

Was Tess McGill from the 1988 film "Working Girl" or Brantley Foster from the 1987 film "Secret of My Success" more justified in her / his deceitful actions? Why?
I've never seen either of those, but I read the Wiki plot summaries. I have to side with Brantley. Tess was hired to be a secretary and work for Katherine, her boss. We all sign papers when we start a job that state any ideas we come up with while employed there (and that are relevant to the job) are property of the company. Didn't get credit for it? Too bad! Brantley, on the other hand, was at least trying to help the company and not just himself (and even if he did impersonate someone else, he did continue to do both of his jobs).

This question is based off of the television show "True Jackson VP" (2008 - 2011) and the television show "Hannah Montana" (2006 - 2011). Does Max Madigan of Mad Style or Rico Suave of Rico's Surf Shop run a better business? How so?
Eek... I've seen maybe 2 eps of "True" and half an ep of "HM". I'll have to pass on this one.

Would you prefer to have Murphy Brown from the television show "Murphy Brown", Carla Tortelli from the television show "Cheers", Bill McNeal from the television show "NewsRadio", or Roy Trenneman from the television show "The I.T. Crowd" working for you as an employee? Why?
Oh gosh! Well, Murphy would never listen to me and she'd probably insult me constantly. Carla is a hoot, but I'd hate to be her boss. She'd insult me, too, but I'd worry she'd also beat me up after work every day. I've never seen "The I.T. Crowd", so I don't know about Roy. I unfortunately haven't seen "NewsRadio" in years, but from what I remember of Bill he was egotistical and a real butt to deal with, but he was otherwise relatively harmless. Hmm.... As much as it pains me to say it, I think I'll take Murphy. She's the only one I would trust to actually do her job – and do it well – , even if she doesn't respect me or listen to my direction. (Actor-wise, I would choose Phil Hartman without question. Miss you, Phil! )

Yay, we won! Well, sorta - I SWEAR I changed my vote!! I'm not so upset that I didn't win the medal (Thank you, Elios ) although that does sting (I'm uber competitive so LOL) but now I feel like people think I'm a liar I promise the only time I don't vote the way I say I'm going to is when I'm Rat/Boss & I can't vote then, anyway!

PSYCH QUESTIONS:

I've never seen 9-5 (finally something "before my time" )

OFFICE SPACE: Probably Peter. Michael and Samir were pretty cool but I remember finding one of them annoying but I can't remember which one I can relate to Peter more now than when I first saw the movie so I think we'd be able to commiserate together. Aside from that...yeah, no, we'd be office friends - eat dinner after work & maybe grab a drink.
I don't really remember Nina, Drew or Tom but I absolutely hate Milton and Bill =P

Ooh, never saw Working Girl (almost though!) or Secret of My Success (at least I've heard of it though, right?) But that sounds like an AWESOME question!

Never saw True Jackson VP & I swear I only know a little bit about Hannah Montana (LOL) - Rico does seem pretty successful, but it seems to me he has Hannah's brother work for him (occasionally at least right?) and that's a mistake, so based on my Wiki of Max, I'm going to go with him. A CEO of a Fashion Design Studio is WAY more impressive than a Surf Shop & if he were a bad business owner, then True would be unemployed, correct?

Dunno Roy (The I.T. Crowd) so he's out by default. I would not want Murphy working under me b/c she'd never take me seriously - I use positive reinforcement in my management approach & she would break me like a carrot if I ever tried to tell her what to do (from what I remember of the show - I was very young at the time LOL) I loved Bill in the show, but it would be horrible to be the one to try to communicate with him, so I'm going with Carla. She is a stubborn woman, but she would do her job b/c she wants her paycheck, so I don't think I'd have too much of a problem with her. i.e. She seems easier to handle than Murphy would be


Great game! Best ratings from me

Realy? I mean, yeah I can feel his pain, but when his actual personality comes through, it's not a pleasant one!

I do agree about Carla but I guess what are we doing? Are we jumping in as their boss in their professions? B/c neither woman would take too kindly to us but at least in a restaurant, there's really not much supervising you have to do (of the one-on-one variety) but Murphy had a serious career going & she's not going to take someone else's suggestion about how things should be done (imo). I was actually going to choose Bill but to me it's like that bible passage: A father tells his 2 sons to work in the field. One says No, walks away but then does it. The other says yes but never does it. I feel Carla is the "no" child and Bill is the "yes" child. I'd rather you face me with your issues, but do the work than think you know better & do what YOU think is best, behind my back.



(Actor-wise, I would choose Phil Hartman without question. Miss you, Phil! )


Oh completely! I was thinking that during my decision - I was like "Phil!" but then remembered that his character was difficult to talk to



Okay, sorry for the spam & double post!

For the record:

1) Samir - I think he would have lots of stories and he can breakdance!

2) I actually haven't seen "Working Girl". I'll trust Elios and go with Brantley. Plus I LOVE "Secret of My Success"

3) Max - Rico does well at making the money, but doesn't normally do it ethically. Max generally builds up his people who in turn build the business. Ny daughter used to watch both of those shows.

4) I think I'll take Roy - I agree about Murphy and Bill. I don't think I could handle their egos. Carla had a lot of baggage that I would probably have a hard time relating to. Roy would do his work and would be fun in the off hours.

I tried to get questions from different times. "9 to 5" was the oldest think I had (1980). I also tried to get shows/movies that might be known outside of the U.S., but just had a hard time there. I.T. Crowd and one of The Office were both British. I also tried to mix it up with sexes somewhat.

"I.T. Crowd" was an AWESOME show. I still watch the episodes on NetFlix.

Yeah I guess so. But, this is a company mixer - I'm not gonna marry the guy!

Re: Carla (Cheers) - Man, that lady would walk out on her shift if she had to go someplace. She was constantly pregnant and dealing with her unruly brood. It'd take a real heartless person to fire her because then she'd have no income. She never took anyone seriously and was always rude to the customers. It was lucky Sam was her boss b/c he was a chill dude (I didn't watch "Cheers" much when Kirstie Alley was the owner of the bar, but I doubt she and Carla got along ).

For pretty much the same reason you chose Carla, I chose Murphy. She was a serious journalist. If I made my case to her as to why I wanted something done a certain way, she'd resist but I feel she'd ultimately do the right thing in the end. Ooooooor, she'd quit and leave my stations and tada! xD

Y'know, I've seen it on NetFlix but never watched it. I'll have to give it a try, now, since someone has actually recommended it.

I heard I.T. Crowd was a good one - since it's on Netflix, I'll definitely give it a try!

& about Carla - Elios, you probably are right. I haven't seen it in years, so my memory is quite foggy. I remember her personality but I thought she worked hard. I guess b/c she "had a lot of baggage" as Rhythmic put it, I confused that with hard life = hard worker LOL

I'll go jump in your new game, Rhythmic, if that's alright - this one was a lot of fun!

I actually only saw 1 or 2 episodes of the Office. I found that info on google. People thought I implied I watched it, an so I went along with it. No sense in wasting a round on voting me, plus it would be suspicious to all of a sudden go back an say never mind.

Good job, everyone. I really did think it was blackest red. Oh well, we guessed right in the end.
