What are the reference points for the final scene of the Office (US) Season 2 Episode 21, "Conflict Resolution?"

At the end of the episode in question Toby takes a file folder box full of complaints and puts it on a shelf filled with rows and rows of boxes that look exactly the same. This is my favorite scene of the US office because, to me, it represents the mundanity of office work specifically, and life in general.
Recently I saw a movie that ended the same way, with someone pushing a crate into a warehouse full of crates that looked exactly the same. What movie is this?
i am interested to know about similar instances in TV/Film/Literature. The end of "Spartacus" comes to mind.
