the windows realize that they're headed straight for the water at
the edge of the airport.
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that
it will plow into the water, screams of panic fill the cabin. But at
that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know,
Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late, and we're
all gonna die."
