The 25 Best Scenes in Comedy Spoof Movies

4. "Joey, have you ever…"

Movie: Airplane! (1980)

Deservedly regarded as one of the most quotable movies ever, the 1980 comedy classic Airplane! plays like a Master's class in silly yet intelligent humor. The film's arguable (but undeniably riotous) zenith of inappropriate laughter comes from pilot Clarence Oveur (Peter Graves), who invites an innocent little boy to visit the cockpit where he and co-pilot Roger Murdock (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) handle their business.

Showing young Joey how everything works, Clarence first hands the boy a toy plane, reserved for "our special visitors." Then come a series of questions, starting with the harmless, "Have you ever been in a cockpit before?" Followed by, "Have you ever seen a grown man naked?" Then, "Joey, you ever hang around the gymnasium?" And, eventually, "Joey, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?"
