Tomorrow is the 30th anniversary of one of my favorite movies of all time, Airplane! To celebrate, watch the classic clip above. When we were kids, my brother and I memorized the dialogue in this scene (every scene, actually) and would occasionally perform it. For our parents. Below is a delightful video featuring the film's creators and the two actors reminiscing about the jive talk bit. For more, please see "Oh Stewardess, I speak jive!"
New York Times feature about the film's anniversary: "Surely it's 30 (Don't Call Me Shirley!)"
