Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Release: November 25, 1987

Neal Page is trying to return to his family for Thanksgiving in Chicago after being on a business trip in New York. His journey is doomed from the outset, with Del Griffith, a traveling salesman, interfering first by leaving his trunk by the side of the road causing Neal to trip when racing an uncredited character for a cab, then moments later again by inadvertently snatching the taxi ride that Neal had bought from an attorney just before. The two inevitably pair up later and begin an error-prone adventure to help Neal get back to his home. Their flight from LaGuardia Airport to O'Hare is diverted to Wichita due to a blizzard in Chicago, which ends up dissipating only a few hours after touchdown in Kansas. When every mode of transport (including a train, a bus, and a rental car) fails them, what should have been an 1 hour and 45 minute New York-to-Chicago flight turns into a three-day adventure. To complicate matters even further, on the first night in Wichita, a thief breaks into the poorly-locked motel and steals almost $1,000 aggregate from the two men.

Neil: "What do you think the temperature is?"
Del: "One."
Neil: "I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They'd say, "How can you stand it?" I'd say, "'Cause I've been with Del Griffith. I can take ANYTHING." You know what they'd say? They'd say, "I know what you mean. The shower curtain ring guy. Woah"."
Del (looks over at Neil): "Six bucks and my left nut says we aren't landing in Chicago."
Neal: "Del... Why did you kiss my ear?"
Del: "Why are you holding my hand?"
Neal: "[frowns] Where's your other hand?"
Del: "Between two pillows..."
Neal: "Those aren't pillows!"
Del: "We've been robbed!"
Neil: "(sarcastically) Do you think so?"
