Fun Stuff

From The Towering Inferno (1974)
Doug Roberts: [on security phone with Wes] Doug... I'm up on 83 with Will. Listen, we got a little wiring problem. If we've got an overload it could be trouble. Shut down as many of the Zone One systems as you can.
Wes: [into the phone] I'm afraid I can't do that, Mr. Roberts. We've got all the lights on for the dedication ceremony.
Doug Roberts: [in disbelief] All... you mean the whole building?
Wes: Well, we're taking the overload just fine.
Doug Roberts: [sharply] Well shut it down, right away!
Wes: But I can't do that without a direct okay from Mr. Duncan himself.
