About Mr. Scott

When Archie, who was given an organ donor card by Joseph Sanders (Sorrell Booke), his boss, realizes the card was to donate organs from his body after his death, he, decides he wants to give the card back. When he goes into Mr. Sanders office the next day, He catches Mr. John Scott, who's an Organ Donor Bank representative, conducting a fund raising drive at Pendergast Tool & Die, as Mr. sanders was temporarily out of his office.

When Mr. Scott wonders as to why Archie wanted to pullout of the fund raining drive, Archie makes an excuse "it's against my religion", which leads Mr. Scott to believe that he was jewish, which he understood as Mr. Scott understood that Jews were opposed to autopsys and dismemberments.

When Mr. Sanders returns to his office, Mr. Scott explains that archie wished not to donate his organs to the drive because he was Jewish, as Mr. Sanders says "Jewish? He's as Jewish as Rev. Ike!"
