- First time in Orlando? | - Oh, no.

I fly in once a year.

Of course, | I usually come in a different way.

- Where are you from? | - Up north.

Me, too. | Toronto.

Really?

- What line of work are you in? | - Toys, mostly.

No fooling? | You been in it long?

- Longer than you can imagine. | - I hear that.

Priscilla, come back here.

You here on business?

I'm here to appoint | a replacement;

someone to take over my duties.

Unfortunately, a person | with the right qualifications...

is difficult to find.

Well, it's a smart cookie...

that knows when to hang up | the old cleats.

Oh, it's time.

I'm afraid I really should have | done this last year.

I don't think I've quite...

got the magic for another trip.

That's how I feel every time | they send me to Pittsburgh.

You know, there was a time | when I could remember...

every name on my list.

- A lot of contacts? | - Oh, all over the world.

Now I have trouble recalling...

who was naughty | and who was nice;

who asked for a toy truck,

and who wanted a bicycle.

Sounds like a database problem.

Hey, buddy, hurry up.! | I gotta get to the airport.

Don't worry, mister. | We'll make that plane.

I have lived my life | in the fast lane.

I have an almost | supernatural feel...

for the road | beneath my tires.

- Ha, ha! Thrill driver! | - [ Tires Screech ]

[ Ernest ] | Reminds me of my old days...

on the ''figure-8''track.

''In car 9, it's Ernest P. Worrell, | the screamin'demon.!

He's going for his second | track record tonight.!''

Whoa!

[ Tires Screech ]

Whoa!

Whoaaaa.!

- [ Tires Screech ] | - Hey, mister.! Mister.!

I told him about that seat belt.

Hey mister, | you can't get out here!

Fun is fun, | but you've got a plane to catch!

[ Grunts ]

Nice bag. Gucci?

Gunny! Get it?

Next in line.

I hate this job.

Is something wrong?

Is this your real name?

It's the name | I'm known by, yes.

Sure.

Why not?

Thanks, Skippy.

[ Ernest ] | We'll catch that plane, mister.

We'll make it. | Don't worry.

[ Ernest ] | We'll be airborne before you know it.

[ Rewing Engine ]

Ahhhh!

[ Crunch ]

Hey,you.!

Touch down.!

- [ Shouting ] | - It's not my fault!

Well sir, | I think we made it.
