Air America (1990) Poster


Robert Downey Jr.: Billy



  • Billy Covington : [Gene is loading a machine gun]  Excuse me, is that an Uzi?

    Gene Ryack : (glances at Babo & Billy) You know, that would make a great TV commercial? 'Excuse me, is that an Uzi?' 'Why, yes it is. Hey, self-defense is no laughing matter! That why when I want number one I pack an Uzi... accept no substitutes.'

  • Billy Covington : I don't wanna crash twice in one day!

    Gene Ryack : Don't worry, I crash better that anyone I know.

  • Billy Covington : Gene, you cant sell the plane! It's government property!

    Gene Ryack : The U.S. Government doesn't exist in Laos and neither does this plane!

    Billy Covington : Good point!

  • [their plane is in trouble] 

    Babo : We're VSF!

    Billy Covington : What!

    Babo : Very Severely Fucked

  • [Gene has to make a decision about his cargo] 

    Billy Covington : Come on, You gotta do it, or you're just another version of Major Lemond, with a slightly hipper rap!

  • Billy Covington : What the f*** are you doing here, man? Do you believe in this war?

    Gene Ryack : I used to believe in all these wars.


    Gene Ryack : See, I had this theory once. I believed in the politics of Saturday night.

    Billy Covington : And...?

    Gene Ryack : I rated all governments and countries by how good or bad their Saturday nights were... and... I KNEW that Moscow and Peking had to be a stone DRAG at that time of the week. So I was flying for a cause. I was fighting to defend... chicken BBQs and weinee roasts, and Ray Charles songs and drinkin' Southern Comfort till you passed out behind the bar.

    Billy Covington : Politics of Saturday Night. I can relate to that theory.

    Gene Ryack : Yeah, it's not bad, is it? Just not particularly true, that's all. I hear they party pretty hard in Moscow.

    Billy Covington : No need to give up a good theory just because it isn't true.

  • Billy Covington : Pilot hijinks? This is psychotic behavior.

    Gene Ryack : Well, here at Air America, what is considered psychotic behavior anywhere else is just company policy.

  • Billy Covington : How often do you guys go on a bender like this?

    Babo : Bender? This isn't a bender, this is night-time!

  • Billy Covington : Jesus! Who the hell is shooting at us?

    Jack Neely : Over here, everybody shots at us.

  • Billy Covington : Alright, I'm not gonna die dropping pigs from the sky! Not gonna happen!
