Flummox the Plane

Toby Ziegler: "We're flying in a Lockheed Eagle Series L-1011. Came off the line twenty months ago. Carries a Sim-5 transponder tracking system, and you're telling me I can still flummox this thing with something I bought at Radio Shack?"

Everyone knows that "rule" is just to prevent people from yapping on their cell phones the entire time they're in the air, right? And the "no electronic devices" is so you'll pay at least a little attention to the stewardesses (or whatever they're called these days). Right?

One Response to "Flummox the Plane"

  1. I once asked a pilot whether a cellphone did anything to the plane, and he flat out told me that there was no way in the world he would fly a plane if a cellphone could screw with it.

    The purpose is completely what you say - so that people will pay attention to the flight attendants. Nothing more, nothing less.
