Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes… 
On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the
level of gasoline in the under ground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them.  “What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?”
I joked.  “It would go out,” he replied very matter-of-factly.

“Really?” I asked, surprised to hear that. “Is there a lack of oxygen down there or

some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?”

“No,” my co-worker continued. “The force from the explosion would most likely blow it out.”😳

Answer: A Bridge Too Far!
In this scene British Major General Robert Urquhart (Sean Connery) has just experienced the Murphy’s Law that maintains, “If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.” He is part of Operation Market Garden, an ambitious (but failed) attempt by the Allies to end World War II in Europe quickly. The plan was to use airborne paratroopers to secure three bridges behind German lines and then link up with a ground thrust by the British 30 Corp, allowing easy access over the Rhine River into Germany. General Urquhart’s part of the plan was to lead the British First Airborne Division in capturing the bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem, the Netherlands. However, Allied bombing released inmates from an insane asylum, who laughed at Urquhart’s troops, jeeps that were supposed to arrive never did, and the radios had the wrong crystals and were useless. A frustrated General Urquhart says line one and Corporal Hancock (Colin Farrell) replies with line two.
