I Wish it Was Over

I snapped this picture the other day at O'Hare (what? It's not like I had anything else to do in my 4 hour wait there).

I did so, because when I saw it, I immediately went to one of my all time favourite movies - and in particular, one certain scene. You know how things evoke memories.

Of course, it starts with Captain Oveur being paged overhead to pick up the white courtesy phone ("no, the white one!").

Yes, he's on the phone with the Mayo Clinic and when he gets another emergency call from one Mr. Hamm.

"All right. Give me Hamm on five, hold the Mayo."

Of course it's a cheesy joke. Almost all the jokes in the movie were, and they came from people you never expected to say such cheesy stuff.....but that's what made it a great movie.

...and yes, the magazine section that Captain Oveur is near does say 'Wanking Material'. What's it to ya?

Such a great movie. Love the singing nuns in the plane (trying to keep Vicki from 'The Love Boat' relaxed) as well as "Excuse me miss, I speak jive!"
