      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: What do you say when you just killed a man with your fists? Even say you both took the same risks, and you can deny there was any malice. After all, none of the blows were struck in anger. You can even try to convince yourself there was something wrong with the other guy, that it would have happened anyway if he had just been walking down the street somewhere. And even if all this is true, it doesn't change the way people start to look at you - or the way you feel.

      • Tom: What am I going to write about your boxing career?
        Frank: Just tell them I retired undefeated - while I'm still beautiful!

      • Johnson: (to Frank) You've got a pretty good left for a cop. Right could use a little work.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: I can remember a time when we looked at sports and the people who excelled in them as special and incorruptible, a time when a scandal involving an athlete was almost as unthinkable as a blasphemy in church. We've come a long way since then, and maybe that view of the world was never very accurate. But there's something inside me that just can't help wishing for some heroes to admire again.
