You're gonna make | that flight after all.

Come on, mister,

this is no time to take a nap.

You're gonna miss your flight.

[ Shouting ]

Yes, sir, when it comes | to driving skills,

nobody can beat | Ernest P. Worrell.

[ Rip-pp ]


Here. Fold this up. | Kick some of these in here.

Yes, sir, curb to counter.

It's him!

Just a little extra service | us independents have to do...

to keep up with the big guys.

- Whoa! | - You forgot your carry-on.

Here, you'll need a jacket.

[ Shouting ]

You'd better take | this other suitcase.

Have a nice day!

[ Shouting ]

What a place.

Christmastime, | and it's 80 degrees.

Yes, I'm used to | a colder climate myself.

You know what I'd really like | for Christmas?

- Snow. | - Snow?

I could have sworn | you wanted a CD player.

- I'd better make a note of that. | - [ Car Horn ]

There's my wife. | I've got to go.

Are you going to be okay? | It was nice meeting you.

I've made a note | about that snow.


Mister, I'm a taxi.

Here, you got one.

I'll take those.

[ Shouting ]

Where to?

Orlando Children's Museum.

[ Tires Screech ]

Hey, come back here!

Ha! Ha!

Bobby, we've got 9 crates on hold,

and they've got to be | picked up on the 2 4th.

I can't believe it!

Who in their right mind...

would be working on the 2 4th?

That's Christmas eve.

I'll tell you who.

''We'' who, that's who.

Rain, sleet, hail, | the Super Bowl,

the 4th ofJuly.

Bobby, if it weren't for us,

- this airline would never | get off the ground. | - [ Crunch ]

Ain't that right, Bobby?

I guess if you want things | done right,

you gotta do it yourself.

[ Groan ]

Yo, Bob!

Break's over.

[ Groan ]

Sun gettin' to you?

Yes, it's not as bright at night.

I'm usually here at night.

Here you go. | I always keep an extra pair.

Oh, thank you, Ernest.
