Airplane! (1980) Poster


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Roger Murdock



  • Joey : Wait a minute. I know you. You're Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. You play basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Roger Murdock : I'm sorry, son, but you must have me confused with someone else. My name is Roger Murdock. I'm the co-pilot.

    Joey : You are Kareem! I've seen you play. My dad's got season tickets.

    Roger Murdock : I think you should go back to your seat now, Joey. Right, Clarence?

    Captain Oveur : Nahhhhhh, he's not bothering anyone. Let him stay here.

    Roger Murdock : But just remember, my name is...

    [showing his nametag] 

    Roger Murdock : ROGER MURDOCK. I'm an airline pilot.

    Joey : I think you're the greatest, but my dad says you don't work hard enough on defense.

    [Kareem gets angry] 

    Joey : And he says that lots of times, you don't even run down court. And that you don't really try... except during the playoffs.

    Roger Murdock : [breaking character]  The hell I don't! LISTEN, KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night! Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes!
