Thought this would be a fun one. Think back to the movie Airplane!, if you were stuck in that situation, which character would you have been? Ted Striker saving the day? Maybe you wouldn't be up there at all, and instead would have been one of the Religious Zealots in the beginning. Or maybe, this was the week for you to stop smoking, drinking, taking amphetimines, or sniffing glue.
I think I would have been Dr. Rumack, showing no real emotion about the situation, " I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you."
"A hospital, what is it?"..."It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now." Who wants to be the hero when you get lines like that. And he is the one character who is really calm about the situation. Everyone else has all this drama, and he acts like this is just an ordinary day. And of course, as Rumack you get to say the classic line "And don't call me Shirley!"
