Line(s) of the Day #Airplane!

Airplane film shirley

Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
Ted Striker: Surely you can’t be serious.
Rumack: I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.

Leslie Nielsen and Robert Hays in Airplane! (1980), long considered one of the funniest ever comedies.

  1. Ah, my favourite comedy.

    There’s word that AIRPLANE! is based almost entirely on the little-known 1957 flick ZERO HOUR!, with some of the funniest lines in the former delivered with total gravity in the latter. I haven’t seen ZERO HOUR!, but I think I might have to for that reason alone.

    Thanks for jogging my memory.
