“Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in ‘Vegas with all this stuff!”
Well boys, we’ve got three engines out, we’ve got more holes in us than a horse trader’s mule, the radio’s gone and we’re leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower, why we’d need sleighbells on this thing...but we’ve got one thing on those Ruskies - at this height, why they might harpoon us, but they dang sure ain’t gonna spot us on no radar screen! - Major T.J. King Kong

The original line was, Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas with all this stuff!
