Airplane! (1980) – “And don’t call me Shirley”
Airplane! is a disaster-comedy film that parodies the commercial airline industry. The film is full of memorable quotes and scenes, including the famous “And don’t call me Shirley” line. The moment happens when stewardess Elaine Dickinson (Julie Hagerty) asks Captain Oveur (Peter Graves) if he wants coffee. When he replies with “No, thank you, I take it black, like my men,” she responds with an incredulous “So, cream, then?” To which, Oveur says, “No, I said ‘like my men,’ not ‘with my men.’ And don’t call me Shirley.” It’s a witty and unexpected punchline that has entered the cultural lexicon as a reference to a moment of pure comedic genius.
Dumb and Dumber (1994) – Toilet Humor
Dumb and Dumber is a cult comedy classic that stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as two dim-witted friends on a road trip adventure.
