Sidney J. Mussburger: This better be good. I'm in a bad mood.

Norville Barnes: Well, sir. I've got something for you from the mailroom, but first if I could just take a minute or so from your very valuable time to show you a little something I've been working on for the last two or three years. [Shows him the drawing of the CIRCLE, but sees that it's upside down and flips it over]. You know, for kids!

Sidney J. Mussburger: Wait a minute!

Norville Barnes: But I've got big ideas.

Ancient Mail Sorter: I'm sure you do.

Norville Barnes: For instance, take a look at this sweet baby. [Shows a drawn CIRCLE on a piece of paper] I developed it myself. Yessirie, this is my big ticket upstairs. You know, for kids.

Ancient Mail Sorter: Terrific.

Norville Barnes: So, it sees how I won't be working in the mailroom long.

Ancient Mail Sorter: No, I don't guess you will be.

Norville Barnes: How long you been here?

Ancient Mail Sorter: Forty-eight years. Next year they move me up to parcels... if I'm lucky.

Buzz the Elevator Operator: I like to think so! It's this little idea I been working on. Ya see, I don't intend to be an elevator boy forever. Take a look at this sweet baby! [shows Norville a drawing of a CIRCLE]
