Quotes

Joe Peters: What I mean is, I'm not the Santa Claus type.
Mr. Grimes: With whiskers, one Santa Claus is pretty much like another.
Joe Peters: Oh oh oh, sure, but-but wouldn't someone older be better for you, someone like, well, Uncle Billy? Yeah - that's your man for you!
Mr. Grimes: It is the view of the front office that you are more expendible than Uncle Willy.
Joe Peters: Expendible?
Mr. Grimes: A janitor's work is never finished, Mr. Peters, whereas the hardware department is scarcely the mecca of Christmas shoppers.
