William Shatner's character orders a profile on everyone who has seen The Sound of Music (1965) more than four times. That film was directed by Robert Wise, who also directed Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).
Oh, cut the bleeding heart crap, will ya? We've all got our switches, lights, and knobs to deal with, Striker. I mean, down here there are literally hundreds and thousands of blinking, beeping, and flashing lights, blinking and beeping and flashing ...
As Striker is attaching the bomb to the control panel, a crewmember is reflected in the controls.
Worst Boy ................... Adolf Hitler
In the TV version of 'Airplane II' there were 2 gags involving the Texan played by Hugh Gillin that were not in the theatrical release. One involved him giving a large sum of money to a man representing a heart foundation who then keels over dead when he sees how much money the Texan had given him. The other involves the Texan asking for something to read while on the shuttle flight and Mary the stewardess gives him a huge pile of books. There's also an extra scene in line when Sonny Bono buys the $1 million dollar auto insurance policy. In the theatrical version the first time we see Sonny Bono is when he's buying the bomb in the airport all-purpose shop. None of these scenes are on the DVD as extras.
