The Day After (TV Movie 1983) Poster

(1983 TV Movie)

Georgann Johnson: Helen Oakes


  • Helen Oakes : My God. It's 1962 all over again. The Cuban Missile Crisis. Do you remember Kennedy on television, telling Khrushchev to turn his boats around?

    Dr. Russell Oakes : "Full retaliatory response." He didn't bat an eye.

    Helen Oakes : We were in New York, in bed... just like this, remember? 118th street.

    Dr. Russell Oakes : Meatball sandwiches from Sharky's.

    Helen Oakes : Your last year's residency. I swear we that made Marilyn that night.

    Dr. Russell Oakes : We got up, went to the window to look for the bombs.

    Helen Oakes : It didn't happen. It's not going to happen now.

    Dr. Russell Oakes : Nah. People are crazy, but not *that* crazy.

    Helen Oakes : Well... do you want to know from crazy? The Donnelly's left today for Guadalajara.

    Helen Oakes : Guadalajara?

    Helen Oakes : I swear it. I spoke to Herb as they were pulling out. He said they were dovetailing their vacation with the rising international tensions.

    Dr. Russell Oakes : Aw, cut it out!

    Helen Oakes : I'm not kidding. Well, they took their Vietnamese maid with them. And that rotten little barking dog with the pushed-in face.

    Dr. Russell Oakes : [chuckles]  Oh, what about their little combination tractor/lawnmower/golfcart with the silver hubcaps?

    Helen Oakes : [laughs]  Probably.

    Helen Oakes : [sighs]  What if it does happen? What'll we do?
