I’ve seen this movie multiple times and Fred Willard’s hair never ceases to amaze me.
On the topic of Fred Willard…
My sis and I say, “Hey, wha’ happen?” all the time to each other, and apparently this is the line most quoted back to him. I guess we could try to use “I got a weal wed wagon” instead, but it doesn’t have quite the same feeling to it.

What I learned from this: Fred Willard turned down the lead role in Airplane!
every time something about it comes on the TV, I say to my wife, geez, I probably should have done that. And she says, Fred, if you had done it, it might not have been that successful.
I heart Fred Willard.
