Transcript:
Right, honey. Right.
Well, I'm not looking
for a mail-order bride.
I just want somebody
that I can have a decent
conversation with over dinner.
You know, without it falling down
into weepy tears over some movie
that she just saw.
She's very emotional.
Although, I cried at the
end of The Dirty Dozen.
Well, who didn't?
Jim Brown was throwing
these hand grenades
down these air shafts.
And Richard Jaeckel and
Lee Marvin we sitting on top
of this armoured personnel carrier.
They were dressed up like Nazis.
And it was...
Trini Lopez...
Trini Lopez...
He busted his neck when
they were parachuting down
behind the Nazi lines.
Stop it!
Richard Jaeckel, at the beginning,
he had on a shiny helmet,
because he was an MP.
Please, no more.
God, I love that movie.
[MUSIC PLAYS ON TV]
This is the best movie
I've ever seen in my life.
What's so great about it?
You have to find her, Jonah.
You have to go to her.
Do you know how much money
it costs to go to New York?
Nobody knows.
It changes practically every day.
How much money do you have?
80 dollars.
I have 42. That'll probably cover cabs.
But how would I get there?
Honey, I have to run these
tickets over to someone.
Can you keep an eye on things
out front till I get back?
Sure, Mum.
You want a window seat or aisle?
Window.
You want a fruit plate?
I don't know. Do I?
I'd rather die than
eat airplane food.
I'm telling them you're 12
so you can fly unaccompanied
and the stewardess
won't carry you around
and stuff like that.
Are you crazy?
Who'd believe I'm 12?
If it's in the computer,
they'll believe anything.
Are you sure?
Do you want me to say that you're
really, really short for your age,
and they shouldn't say anything
because it would hurt your feelings?
Yeah. That's a great idea!
