Samson got a real buzz cut... (45.23)

Dake: I'm holding in my hand Robert Axelrod's signature relinquishing his ability to trade securities. He gave it up.

Chuck: Well ol' Samson got a real buzz cut. Uh, we need to get our version out right away.

Dake: I've already taken steps.

Samson was the last of the judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible (chapters 13 to 16) and one of the last of the leaders who "judged" Israel before the institution of the monarchy. He is sometimes considered to be an Israelite version of the popular Near Eastern folk hero also embodied by the Sumerian Enkidu and the Greek Heracles.

The biblical account states that Samson was a Nazirite, and that he was given immense strength to aid him against his enemies and allow him to perform superhuman feats, including slaying a lion with his bare hands and massacring an entire army of Philistines using only the jawbone of a donkey. However, if Samson's long hair was cut, then his Nazirite vow would be violated and he would lose his strength.

buzz cut is any of a variety of short hairstyles usually designed with electric clippers.
