I don't know about you, but work can really stress me out. One of the ways I try to take it easy is to quote my favorite movies (yes, I watch more than Coen films) at work. Sometimes it's pretty subtle, and other times it can be pretty blatant. It's usually best when somebody else has a clue at what you're alluding to. I suggest you start out easy. Take it from Walter - when the plan gets too complicated, things start going wrong. We all saw the results of that - Dude's car got dinged up.
One of my favorites is, "Phone's ringing dude." You should try it out. Most people probably won't even realize that's a quote.
Another phrase that's easy to work in to many conversations, especially meetings, is "a lotta ins, a lotta outs." Even the phrase "what have you" is a real easy one to squeeze in.
If you work in a customer service type of job like I do, I'm sure you have come across an inept customer or two. Next time you complain to a co-worker about one of them you should refer to them as "a bunch of amateurs."
