Alcoholic pilot, Ted Striker has developed a fear of flying due to wartime trauma, but nevertheless boards a passenger jet in an attempt to woo back his stewardess girlfriend. Food poisoning decimates the passengers and crew, leaving it up to Striker to land the plane with the help of a glue-sniffing air traffic controller and Striker's vengeful former Air Force captain, who must both talk him down.
Quotes from Airplane!
Striker: Surely there must be something you can do.
Rumack: I'm doing everything I can, and stop calling me Shirley.
Striker: Surely you can't be serious?
Rumack: I am serious. And don't call me Shirley.
All right, Striker, you listen, and listen close. Flying a plane is no different from riding a bicycle; it's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.
I know but this guy has no flying experience at all. He's a menace to himself and everything else in the air... yes, birds too.
