In the first the Budapest trolley had yet to amputate one of his legs. You can see the difference in his eyes.

1960s. Lawyer Len Garment and Richard Nixon (partner in Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie and Alexander)are returning to the office after lunch with Teller. Garment notes the dandruff in Teller's eyebrows. Nixon says: "That's not dandruff. It's strontium 90."

That quote is from Garment demonstrating that Nixon really did have an "urbane" sense of humor.
