"NewsRadio" Big Day (TV Episode 1995) Poster

(TV Series)


Stephen Root: Jimmy James


  • Jimmy : Everybody gets an equal bonus of $400.

    Dave : That sounds good, sir.

    Jimmy : Except for one lucky person who gets a bonus of $3000, or as I like to call it, "The Big Bonus".

    Dave : That's very generous of you, sir.

    Jimmy : And also, one employee gets a bonus of $0, or as I like to call it "The Shaft".

  • Bill : Joe, who's the black undercover dick who's a sex machine with all the chicks?

    Joe : Why, I believe that would be Shaft, Bill.

    Bill : Mmm-hmm. And who's the cat who won't cop out when there is danger all about?

    Joe : Once again Bill, you are referring to Shaft. You know, they say that Shaft is one bad mutha...

    Matthew : Just shut up, you guys.

    Jimmy : What're you guys doing?

    Bill : Were just talking about Shaft.

    Jimmy : I can dig it.

  • Jimmy : Today's the big day. Are you stoked?

    Dave : I suppose so, sir. And you?

    Jimmy : Me, I'm miserable. Deciding the yearly bonuses is pure hell.

    Dave : How so?

    Jimmy : Well, you take a human being and assign a dollar value to his head. It's the devil's work, Dave. It's bad hoodoo.

    Dave : I can imagine.

    Jimmy : Deciding the annual bonuses used to be the hardest part of my job.

    Dave : What changed it?

    Jimmy : I made it the hardest part of your job.

    Dave : Since when?

    Jimmy : Since right now.

    Dave : Oh, thank you, sir.

  • Dave : You know, the $400 bonus is fine.

    Jimmy : I'm glad you like it.

    Dave : But the big bonus and the shaft, I prefer not to do those. They just foster an atmosphere of resentment and paranoia in the office.

    [Mr. James gives Dave a sly grin] 

    Dave : Oh, I see.
