Slideshow here.

Fucking amazing, man.

Reading some of the stories of those onboard gives me chills.  Somebody, somewhere was watching out for these people.

Think it might be a good time for "Sully" to sitdown with his superior and reassess that year end evaluation he had.  Mad props to him.

Amazing, and truly heroic.  This is a good reminder that there ARE more important things than what happens Sun. night.  It won't make me any less fanatical, but still, it adds perspective to the mix.

Not one casualty either. Amazing job by the pilot.

Its absolutely incredible that everyone survived. That pilot is a hero in every sense of the word. Give him a mad bonus and a nice vacation.

As a frequent flier who flies into LGA a bunch, I know exactly that runway and take off route. Scary. Must have been coming down like a rock to not nave been able to make it to Newark.

We can either thank isostatic equilibrium for the passengers not drowning or Ted Striker for bringing the plane down safely.

-Our only hope is to build him up. We gotta give him all the confidence we can.

-Striker, have you ever flown a multi-engine plane before?

  -No, never.

-Shit. It's a God damn waste of time. There is no way he can land this plane.

That is some funny stuff.

Barbara Billingsly speaking jive, at the time, was just satanistically hilarious.

No one talks about this one, but it's one of the funniest lines IMO.

My dad says you are pretty good, but you just don't hussle, except when it's the playoffs.

I've been hearing that crap since I was at UCLA.  You tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court night after night.

Kareem had a few more lines in that exchange, but that's all that I can recall.
