Planes, Trains and Automobiles


A friend wrote it, so...

Don't let me stop you.

Last thing I want to be

is an annoying


Nothing grinds my gears

worse than

some chowderhead

who can't keep

his trap shut.

Catch me running

off at the mouth,

give me a poke.


Ohh, that feels good.

Oh, God,

I'm telling you.

My dogs are barking today.



That feels better.

Six bucks and my right nut

says we're not

landing in Chicago.



Where are you?

I'm in Wichita.

Wichita, Kansas?

Are you all right?

What happened?

We couldn't land

in Chicago.

I don't understand

what Wichita has to do

with a snowstorm

in Chicago?

What's going on, Neal?

We took off

from New York,

they closed Chicago,

we landed here.


Trouble on the home front?

I really don't think that's

any of your concern.

The finest line

a man will walk

is between success at work

and success at home.

I got a motto...

like your work, love your wife.

Well, I'll remember that.

What's the flight situation?


No way we'll get out

of here tonight.

We'd have more luck

playing pickup sticks

with our butt cheeks.

We'll find out soon enough.

By the time the airline

cancels this flight,

which they will eventually,

you'd have a better chance finding

a three-legged ballerina

than a hotel room.

I could be stuck here?

I'm saying

you are stuck here.

Ladies and gentlemen,

may I have

your attention, please.

I'm sorry to announce

that we're canceling

flight 909

due to severe weather

in Chicago.

Hi, I was wondering

if you had any rooms

available for tonight?


Anything will do.

I'm sorry.

Is there another motel...




Welcome to Wichita.

Did you book a room yet?

I, uh, couldn't

get in anywhere.

When we arrived,

you called home.

I called
