History[edit | edit source]
In 1957, a group of lettermen was present in Arnie's Diner when Indiana Jones went there together with Mutt Williams. When Jones and Mutt were forced by the KGB agents to leave the Diner, Jones told Mutt to hit one of the lettermen into the face. Mutt did it, and the letterman went down. As a reaction, Mutt was hit himself first by the letterman's girlfriend and than by another letterman which sent him flying into a group of greasers who also were present in the Diner. One of the other lettermen shouted: "Get that greaser!". Mutt shattered a glass jar on the head of still another letterman, whereupon a fight broke out between the lettermen and the greasers. In the mayhem, Mutt and Jones escaped to the Diner's door. In order to mislead the KGB agents, Jones put the hat he was wearing onto the head of a letterman wearing glasses.
