Would I be accused of {shudder} Junior Modding if I pointed out that one-third of the posts/quotes in this thread are essentially duplicates of earlier ones?

Surely you can’t be serious.

This is a different kind of modding altogether.

It's really the only sensible thing to do, if it's done properly. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

The one played by James Nobel, but upon further investigation he was not only straight and having implied sex with women, but was in Airplane II. Oops!

I think I was crossing his character and the nun reading Boy's Life.

How come if Airplane II had no ZAZ input it was so much like the first movie? I would swear it was made by the same people. It's just as funny, IMO. It "looks" right.

Has there ever been another sequel like that? Heck, Lucas couldn't even make a good SW sequel/prequel and it was his baby.

I don't think Airplane 2 gets enough credit for being as funny as it is simply because it wasn't with ZAZ. It's a super funny movie that's right up there with the original.

The whole of Shatner's performance on Alpha Beta base is hilarious. From talking through the monitor/window, "we don't have a tower"*, "He's the top dog, big cheese..." "what does thins thing do?" it's every bit as classic as Airplane!

The whole audience cheered in Airplane! when the jet knocked out the disco radio station antenna. It was a different time, you understand.

If I were asleep, and you were my alarm clock, how would you wake me up?

I wouldn't - I'm no ding-a-ling.
