- "So what happened"?

So she picked up my hat

and threw it at me.

- Hit ya?

- Right in the mouth.

"Get out of the house," she yelled.

"I got enough to do without you gettin'

in my way all the time."

Twenty years ago, I'd have thrown

her out of the window for that.

I'm a Hungarian.

"Consolidated Motors."

"Consolidated Motors"?

What's Consolidated Motors got to do

with it? That's what I'd like to know.

- This is a public park...

- Never mind! Don't answer.

I'll find out myself.

[Joe] Now, this is the course

I'd like you to follow in all cases.

We'll put the letter on the automatic

typewriter. Leave the last paragraph...

Young man, what has Consolidated Motors

got to do with Acme Printing Services?

- Grandpa, what are you doing here?

- Never mind. Look at this.

It says I've been fired because it's

the policy of Consolidated Motors...

and its subsidiaries

not to hire men over 65.

I want to know what in thunder

Consolidated Motors has to do with it.

Search me. Hey, Erickson,

this is my girl's grandfather, Mr. Hodges.

He'd like to know what

Consolidated Motors has to do...

with our 65-year-old

retirement rule.

It's really very simple, Mr. Hodges.

If you'll just step this way for a moment.

Now, we of

the Acme Printing Services...

are a subsidiary of

the Bessamer Publishing Services...

whose stock is owned

by the Simpson Iron Foundry...

which recently merged with

the McCullough Nut and Bolt Company...

whose parent organization

is United Hardware...

the director to which is

interlocked with Rutherton Steel...

a subsidiary of Consolidated Motors.

- Does that answer your question?

- Yes, but it seems a little complicated.

- Big business. If you'll excuse me...

- Just a moment, young man.

Do you suppose if I went

to Consolidated Motors...
