Help ID this quote (sorta)

I just used the phrase "come unglued" in a conversation, and now I feel like I'm remembering it as a line in a movie or a song.

I know this isn't much to go on, but I have faith in yall.

I forgot to add that I'm pretty sure it's a man's voice saying it.

Oooh, I'm first. I'm very excited about this.

I believe it's Airplane! From the courtroom scene:

Witness: It was awful how he came unglued.
Prosecutor: Howie came unglued?
Witness: Oh, no, Howie was a rock. The best tailgunner in the outfit. Buddy came unglued.

Unfortunately, it's not on the IMDB quote page. And if I go find a script, I might not get to be first. :P

We've gotta get these people to a hospital!
A hospital?
It's a big white building with patients, but that's not important right now.

Well, it's kinda in Puddle of Mudd's She Fucking Hates Me.

Quote:
Met a girl, thought she was grand
fell in love, found out first hand
went well for a week or two
then it all came unglued

May I ask a question?

What is it?

It's an interogative statement used to obtain knowledge, but that's not important right now!

Lawyer: "Doctor. Could you give us your impression of the defendant?"

Psychologist: "I'm sorry, I don't do impressions."

Should've known this would turn into that kind of thread. Thank you, Draelin.

Now back to your regularly scheduled quote thread!
