    • Grace: We handle alot of placements here. I'm sure we'll be able to find something for you.
      Mountain: Yeah I know but I don't fit in all these holes here. I mean like here, Why did you leave your last job? State the reason.
      Grace: Oh that's question 9, you see Mr. Clintock what that means ...
      Mountain: Oh I know what it means, but what do I write down? What I write down wouldn't make any sense. I left my last job because I got hit so much I was on my way to punchy land and I probably go blind!
      Grace: Punchy Land?
      Mountain: Well sure, you fight so long you walk around on your heels and listen to the bells go ding. That's what happens to me. Doc looks at my eyes says one or two more fights I'll go blind. It's just a bum break, it's just not fair. You know in 1948 they ranked me number 5.
