The clip stories about pete from Always (1989) with Holly Hunter, Brad Johnson
Then there was the time he delivered a PBY to...
...to Michigan or Mexico. Know what a PBY is?
He's taking off in this PBY...
...which is a feat in itself. They're amazing planes.
It's like a tugboat with wings.
Do they only feed you every two weeks?
What was I talking about?
so he's flying this PBY when he sees this fire.
Main street. Village grocery store. The nearest fire engine is 20 miles away.
You can pick up the chicken. Anything that flies, it's okay.
Even in a good restaurant.
He sees this building on fire and outside of town is this reservoir.
Fills the plane with water and dumps it on the fire.
No, he missed! He hit the post office next door.
Took him three tries. The town was awash. The groceries were burned.
It was fire, flood and famine. If he'd managed...
...the plague, it would've been the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in one PBY.
I mean, he was unique.
Why are you plucking your eyebrows?
I didn't know I was.
Nervous habit. Want to do the wishbone?
Okay, here we go.
He was up in that plane...
...doing his dumb stunts.
There would be this tone in his voice. I called it his "Evel Knievel" voice.
I don't know who he was when he sounded like that.
Part of you thought it was great.
What did he think I thought?
