  • Quotes

    • John Hodges: Excuse me, Mr. Irwin, can you explain this?
      Irwin: Means your retired Hodges, company policy.
      John Hodges: But I don't want to be retired. I've been a printer all my life, I love my job.
      Irwin: Sure I know, how it is.
      John Hodges: Well I haven't missed one day's work in all my life. Check my record.
      Irwin: My old man was like that. With him printing was an art. He'd set up a billboard for some little tailor like it was the Gettysburg address.
      John Hodges: But where can I go? All I know is printing. I want to stay Mr. Irwin.
      Irwin: What can I do, it's a company policy, which is recognized by your union.
      John Hodges: Maybe you could talk to someone about it.
      Irwin: Who could I talk to, I'm a nobody here. I say one word, I might get thrown out on my ear. Look Hodges, don't you think I feel bad enough as it is.
