Ernie Kovacs Quotes:

Lt. Nora McKay: Marriage is out.
Capt. Charlie Stark: What's so out about it?
Lt. Nora McKay: You're a sky tramp.
Capt. Charlie Stark: No, but that's all over! I'm gonna stick in this Air Force.
Lt. Nora McKay: Well, "stick" is the right word! Why do you think you're still a captain?
Capt. Charlie Stark: I guess I just can't get any generals to die.
Lt. Nora McKay: Oh, it's because you're irresponsible and they know it. Like that time in Washington - they want officers, not jockeys!
Capt. Charlie Stark: Great. Once in my life I buzz a little building. How'd I know it was the Supreme Court?
Lt. Nora McKay: Well, if you had any sense, you'd stop buzzing around in airplanes. You'd take a desk job.
Capt. Charlie Stark: I don't think I could learn to fly a desk.


[repeated line]
Capt. Charlie Stark: [asking for a can of beer] Hit me!


Capt. Charlie Stark: There's a lot of things wrong with me, and one of them is I'm love with ya! I was even crazy enough to wanna marry ya.
Lt. Nora McKay: Oh, I can see it now - it'd be a beautiful ceremony, in a vine-covered church with you parachuting through the roof.
Capt. Charlie Stark: Look, don't worry how I get there; you just run your end of the store. All you have to do is sit around looking pretty, rack up a few babies, and keep some cold cans of beer in the icebox.
