Quotes The dialogue from this 1980 movie is definitely juvenile but, it is also very funny. There are so many memorable Airplane movie quotes that to begin listing them, is dangerous as someone's favourite is always left out. The jive talk scene is a great piece of scriptwriting but, it's too long to recreate here so, let's take a look at just a few of the on-liners that have entered everyday usage. "I guess the foot's on the other hand now, isn't it, Kramer?" "Surely you must be joking?" replied with "Dont call me Shirley!" and "Stop calling me Shirley" "I remember how you used to hold me and... how I used to sit on your face and wiggle..." "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue." "There's no reason to be alarmed and we hope you enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?" "Flying a plane is no different from riding a bicycle; it's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes." "Look at that dress... It's awful! And those shoes and that coat... Geez!" "Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?" "Have you ever seen a grown man naked?" "Just wanted to let you know: good luck, we're all counting on you."
