Storyline

Woody, Norm and Cliff come bounding into the bar after a drunken evening of watching The Magnificent Seven (1960), and are feeling all macho. They talk about the lack of danger in everyday life, and crave for such. Another patron in the bar, Bob Speakes, is a skydiving instructor and suggests that they give skydiving a try. The three are all talk and no action, but finally agree to do it after Carla goads them into it. The next day, the three are up in a plane ready for the jump. They all chicken out, the first men ever in Bob's history of teaching that have ever done so. However, the three make a pact that they will say to the gang at the bar that they did it, keeping the story nice and simple: they jumped, the chutes opened, they landed. The two problems are Cliff, who needs to embellish the story to pump up his own so-called extraordinary achievements, and Woody, who has never told a lie in his life. Carla doesn't believe that they did it, until Woody, who is nervous in the lie, ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The skydiving plane is a Lockheed Model 12A Electra Junior, FAA# N1161V (now N12EJ), built 1936. Once owned by Art Scholl up to his death, it is a true warbird, seeing heavy use by the British for photo reconnaissance from the start of WWII (and months prior with concealed cameras); it made first use of the "teardrop" observation window and sported the first-ever "sky camouflage" paint job. Field Marshal Albert Kesselring was once allowed the controls during a pre-war "joy ride" over Germany; Hermann Göring was certainly aware of the plane. In September 1940 it was badly damaged in its hangar by a German bombing raid, whereupon it was shipped back to Lockheed (Burbank). It has appeared in other film and TV projects. See more »

Goofs

Norm jumped from the plane much later than Sam, so there would have been no way for the two of them to hold the Cheers banner together during their descent. See more »
