    Watch out! It's Mavis on the flight simulator! This episode is definitely a series classic. It's wonderful to see such a strong character as Mavis having a fear of flying. Her amazing jokes about flying are an amazing combination to the plot of the episode. Her poker-friends are always hilarious. Is there a part of this show that isn't hilarious? Mavis is hilarious. Courtney is OK. Rita is amazingly hilarious. Mavis's poker friends are amazing. Jadwiga/Nasim and amazing. All that combined with this plot makes this episode even better. Also, Rita shows some character development combined with her usual way of talking.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Nasim: Mavis, look, I think it's OK. You're afraid of flying, I'm still afraid of airports. You know, security has gone insane. You know, they say 'Where are you going? What is the purpose of your trip?'. If I say 'Business', they take me to the litle room. If I say 'Pleasure', I go to the little room. And then they bring out the dreaded plastic gloves. You know, they are actually allowed to search inside of you? I tell you, you're not going to find Bin Laden in there.

    • Mavis: Wait a minute! Who decided we were going to Bahama's? Who, who said that? Who decided that?
      Sophia: We all decided, but 3 weeks ago. It was Tequila night, you remember?
      Mavis: You know I can not remember anything on Tequila night. That's why I created a Tequila night.

    • Danielle: Soo Lin got us cheap flights online.
      Soo Lin: I used that new asian internet company - idontpaythat.com

    • Rita: Mae Rae, I got a gift for you.
      Courtney: It's perfect for you. Guess what it is!
      Mavis: Cash?
      Rita: No
      Mavis: Cheque?
      Courtney (laughs): No!
      Mavis: Then obviously you haven't shopped well for me.

    • Courtney: They have this filth on their web site, this is the Hilton in Paris?!
      Nasim: Not exactly...

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The episode title Airplane! is reference to a classical comedy movie Airplane! from 1980.

    • Courtney: They have this filth on their web site, this is the Hilton in Paris?!
      Nasim: Not exactly.

      Nasim shows Courtney some debauchery on the Internet. Courtney thinks it is the Hilton hotel in Paris. This is an indirect reference to the scandalous Paris Hilton sex tape.
