Zero Hour! (1957)
Dr. Baird: Our survival hinges on one thing - finding someone who not only can fly this plane, but didn't have fish for dinner.
Treleaven: Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking
Capt. Bill Wilson, Pilot: Come on, move up here, you can see better.
[takes out a toy DC-4]
Capt. Bill Wilson, Pilot: Joey, here's something we give our special visitors. Would you like to have it?
Joey Stryker: Thank you! Thanks a lot?
Capt. Bill Wilson, Pilot: You ever been in a cockpit before?
Joey Stryker: No, sir! I've never been up in a plane before!
Lt. Ted Stryker: [enters the cockpit] Oh doctor, the stewardess said...
[Stryker sees the pilot and co-pilot seats empty and the plane on automatic pilot]
Lt. Ted Stryker: BOTH pilots?
Dr. Baird: Can you fly this airplane and land it?
Lt. Ted Stryker: Not a chance!
Treleaven: Ted, that was probably the lousiest landing in the history of this airport. But there are some of us here, particularly me, who would like to buy you a drink and shake your hand. We're coming over.
[observing an outbreak of food poisoning sweeping the plane]
Stewardess Janet Turner: What is it, doctor? What's going on?
Dr. Baird: I'm not sure. Unless... what was it we had for dinner tonight?
Stewardess Janet Turner: Well, we had a choice. Steak or fish.
Dr. Baird: Yes... I remember. I had steak. What did he have? The co-pilot?
Stewardess Janet Turner: He had fish.
Dr. Baird: All right. Now we know what we're up against. Every passenger who ate fish for dinner on this plane will become ill within a half-hour after consumption.
Stewardess Janet Turner: Why?
Dr. Baird: I'm very certain now that it has to do with the fish. There seems to have been contaminated seafood brought on the plane.
Stewardess Janet Turner: How could the fish be contaminated? The airline checks all foods prior to departure.
Dr. Baird: Possibly because of an undetected bacteria strain or untreated cleaning processes of the seafood... but that's not important right now! Tell the captain we need to land this plane as soon as we can. We can't wait before we land in Vancouver.
