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!"

So who would you be?

Probably Ted Striker. As a backup, maybe Rex Kramer.

Johnny

Easily one of the funniest characters in the entire movie!  Smile

Steve McCroskey: This fog is getting thicker.
Johnny: And Leon is getting laaaaarrrrrger.

And my personal favorite:

Reporter: What kind of plane is it?
Johnny: Oh, it's a big pretty white plane with a red stripes, curtains at the windows, wheels, and it just looks like a big Tylenol.

Coffee Johnny?
No thanks!

Rapunzel! Rapunzel! To the tower!

There's a sale at Penney's!

From Airplane II
Johnny, what have you got on Elaine?
Well, I'm two inches taller, a better dancer, and much more fun to be with.

Personally I'd like to be The Sarge from Airplane II. Anyone who can spit and cause an explosion is cool in my book.

Ted Striker, because believe it or not, pretty much everything I drink, spills.
It happens more often when I am wearing a nice shirt.

Airplane! doesn't need anything more, especially not Chuck (Sucks, I hate his guts) Norris.

I'd be "Bet babe, slide a piece a da porter, drink si' run th'
java." or "Lookie here, I can dig grease and butter on some
draggin' fruit garden."
