While waiting in line at a busy airport check-in counter, I noticed a set of rambunctious little boys in front of me. As the line inched along, their mother tried in vain to get them to calm down.
Finally she reached the counter, where the ticket agent asked her, “Have any of the items you plan to take with you on this flight been out of your immediate control since your arrival at the airport?”
The young mother replied honestly, “The luggage, no; the children, yes.”
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “I’ll tell you what. We’ll tell Fred that you were doing a great job taking care of his car. But you parked it out back last night, and in the morning it was gone. We report it to the police, D-Day takes care of the wreck, and your brother’s insurance company buys him a new car.”
ANSWER: Animal House! Otter (Tim Matheson) said this to Flounder (Stephen Furst) after the guys took Flounder’s brother’s car on a “road trip” and put numerous dents in the vehicle. Flounder asked if this plan would work, and Otter responded by saying, “Hey, it’s gotta work better than the truth.” Bluto (John Belushi) then gave Flounder a six-pack along with the advice to “start drinking heavily”.
