'Melrose Place'( Wayne Stambler / Fox )
The evil boss: Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear, above)
The miserable employee: Alison Parker (Courtney Thorne-Smith)
The vile task: Withstanding a boss who is too close for comfort. Amanda dated Alison's roommate Billy and later bought their apartment complex.
Why she doesn't quit: Ambition. She quickly moved up the ranks and landed at the top as president of D&D Advertising, but some sneaky maneuvering by Amanda eventually got her bumped from the company.
