Matt Flynn : An immortal comedy skit that proves that delivery is everything. The gag itself is pretty simple, but it's the way Bud and Lou deliver it and play off each other that makes it a classic.

" Murdock: "We have clearance, Clarence. " Captain: "Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor? " Tower: "Tower Radio, clearance, over. " Captain: "That's 'Clarence Oveur', over. " Tower: "Roger. " Murdock: "Huh? " Tower: "Roger, over. " Murdock: "What? " Captain: "Huh? " Basta: "Who?"
