So maybe I’m just getting tired, maybe I just need a vacation to say Blacksburg, VA, maybe I just need some humor. I don’t know. Nevertheless, something to keep me amused thanks to a colleague at work, “Memorable Quotes from Airplane!“.
My personal favorites are probably:
[Thinking to himself]
Ted Striker: I’ve got to concentrate…
[his thoughts echo]
Ted Striker: concentrate… concentrate… I’ve got to concentrate… concentrate… concentrate… Hello?… hello… hello… Echo… echo… echo… Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon… Manny Mota… Mota… Mota…
Steve McCroskey: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.
Steve McCroskey: Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue
Steve McCroskey: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines
Rumack: You’d better tell the Captain we’ve got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It’s a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now.
Elaine Dickinson: You got a letter from headquarters this morning.
Ted Striker: What is it?
Elaine Dickinson: It’s a big building where generals meet, but that’s not important.
Rumack: I just want to tell you both good luck. We’re all counting on you
Ted Striker: Mayday! Mayday!
Steve McCroskey: What the heck is that?
Johnny: Why, that’s the Russian New Year. We can have a parade and serve hot hors d’oeuvres…
