Notable Quotables: “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”
The movie “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”
Neal (played by Steve Martin): What’s the flight situation?
Del (played by John Candy): Simple. There’s no way on earth we’re going to get out of here tonight. We’d have more luck playing pickup sticks with our butt-cheeks than we will getting a flight out of here before daybreak.
Neal: I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
Del: Yeah, but by the time the airline cancels this flight, which they will sooner or later, you’d have more of a chance to find a three-legged ballerina than you would a hotel room.
Neal: Are you saying I could be stuck in Wichita?
Del: I’m saying you are stuck in Wichita.
Scott’s take: If only we could all be so lucky to have a Dell Griffith with us the next time our flight is delayed!
