Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Here are two of my favourite scenes from this 1987 John Hughes classic 
starring Steve Martin as Neil Page, and John Candy as Del Griffith.

Scene 1) Neil & Del meet Owen and his horrendous tick.

Fun fact: According to Lulie Newcomb (Owen's wife in this scene), "John Hughes learned that Steve was a clean freak, and told Dylan Baker (Owen) to really spit and shake, so he could freak Steve out. Steve ran to wash his hand right after the shot." (source)


'People train runs out of S s s stubville...'

Scene 2) Neil loses the plot at the Marathon car hire desk.

Note: Language is extremely colourful, but the 
scene wouldn't be half of what it is without it.

I love the way the car rental agent starts scratching her
 head with her pen half way through Neil's rant - brilliant.
