This one is simple: One of the characters from the "office" category (e.g. Ben, Chen, Melvin, Boss, Sanderson, etc) must appear in your comic, and never speak. They can appear in one panel, two panels, even all three, but in all appearances, that character must have zero speech balloons whatsoever.
1) Other "office" characters appearing in the strip can speak, so long as they aren't the designated "non-speaker"
2) Characters from any set can be used, so long as a character from the "office" category makes an appearance.
3) The title of the strip must also be a reference to an Academy Award winning movie (any category). A convenient list can be found here.
4) Bonus points awarded for incorporating anything from "Silence Of The Lambs" (e.g. psychoanalysis, murder, the FBI, rare insects, locking people in your basement, etc)
Here is a modest example:
