We've noted before that Matt Damon's character in We Bought a Zoo quits his job by walking backwards out of his office — a scene not unlike Zoo director Cameron Crowe's infamous Jerry Maguire "Who's coming with me?" storm-out moment.

As a tribute to such dramatic good-byes, we present to you a video compilation of some of the most outrageous ways to quit your job from film and TV. When a simple letter of resignation won't do, a middle finger placed squarely between your boss's eyes will probably do the trick.
