Dad loved B movies.

In the days when guests came to our home and lit up their cigars and pipes and before home air condition became popular dad's asthma would force him to leave the house and head for the air conditioned Roxy theater.

Often he would apply lines from a movie to a situation.

In one movie the beloved coach of a small college football team was being honored after another loosing season.

The college president praised the long service of the man and in the course of his speech presented the venerable mentor a suitcase.

As he left the mike he wispered, you are going to need this. You are fired!

The Godfather had his, "I made an offer he couldn't refuse."

Dad's euphemism was, "He was handed a suitcase."
