If, like us, you find yourself quoting Airplane! every single time you board a flight, then the movie is already, rightfully, part of your genetic makeup.
However, look closely (really, honestly you're going to have to look very closely) and there are some incredibly prudent pearls of wisdom in the Abrahams, Zucker & Zucker script.
Looks like you picked the wrong week to quit quoting Airplane!
"You can't expect to win 'em all"
"War is hell"
"They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into. I say, let 'em crash."
"There's no reason to become alarmed"
"Flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes"
"It takes so many things to make love last. But most of all, it takes respect"
"We have a right to know the truth!
"What's most important now is that you remain calm. There is no reason to panic"
"Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that's a dumb question... skip that."
"Remember, you must get some rest"
"There is only one people, we are one and the same"
"That plane can't land itself! It takes a pilot who can handle pressure"
"Supperware products are ideal for storing leftovers to help stretch your food dollar"
"Watch your speed"
"Hey, you know what they say: see a broad to get dat booty yak 'em... ...leg 'er down a smack 'em yak 'em!"
Subtitled translation: "Early to bed, early to rise... Makes a man healthy and wealthy and wise"
