      • Mark: This has to go down in history. This is the day the mighty Ironside struck out.
        Ironside: Don't you believe it.

      • Mark: Chief, we have the contact. He's following us.
        Ironside: All right. When he stops, you stop.
        Mark: Aye aye.
        Ironside: In my Navy, Mark, it was "Aye, aye, Sir". And try not to make a Chinese landing when you park this bucket.
        Mark: I'll try, Skipper, but what's a Chinese landing?
        Ironside: I thought you were an old salt.
        Mark: Our man just parked, Chief. (Mark stops the car, jarring Ironside in the process) Sorry, Chief, ran into the curb.
        Ironside: That is a Chinese landing.

      • Ironside: ... try not to make a Chinese landing when you park this bucket.

        'Chinese landing' is a term for a clumsy airplane landing and is one of several such expressions in common use in aviation since World War I. Since these phrases could infer that the Chinese are clumsy or inferior, they are considered offensive and in poor taste today.

      • Mark: This is the day the mighty Ironside struck out.

        This is likely a play on the famous poem 'Casey at the Bat' written by by Ernest L. Thayer in 1888. The poem tells the story of the Mudville Nine and the concluding line, known by baseball fans everywhere is 'mighty Casey has struck out'.
