Sandpiper only has one airplane, and Joe always reads its call number as "Nevada-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" or N121PP. However, there are a few episodes where the Sandpiper plane's tail shows N121PB and several more (mostly exterior shots) where it shows N160PB. See more »
[after a suggestion is made to make s'mores]
No, I hate s'mores!
How could you hate s'mores?
Because that's the stupidest name for a food, like "It's so good, I want s-more," Those are so stupid, they should be called stupids!

I never watched the show when it had its run on NBC. I just recently started to check out the reruns on USA, and I really enjoy it! It's a very funny, well-written show with a great cast, led by the great Steven Weber.
Actually, I started to feel curious about the show after watching the movie "Sour Grapes." It's a hilarious movie (if you haven't see it, please check it out!) that's written and directed by Larry David, the co-creator of my favorite show "Seinfeld." Weber was great in the role, and he just has exquisite timing.
Well, I started watching the reruns on a regular basis, always looking forward to them to get some big laughs. Tony Shalhoub is another fine actor, and he is the best out of the whole supporting cast. His phony accent and outrageous antics are hilarious. Thomas Haden Church, from the short-lived but hugely funny sitcom "Ned and Stacey," is also very talented, and he's a joy to watch.
If you, like me, never got the chance to see the show on NBC, please check it out on USA. It's an absolute riot!
My score: 8 (out of 10)
