A couple people at my work (including myself) say "Doctor" everytime we see each other. It's gotten really old. But I'll always love the movie.

Definitely belongs in the 80s collection.

I love the scene during the operation he doesn't know where to cut the patient and he keeps looking at the other doctors as he moves the scalpel down inch by inch until they give him the nod. [Wink]

Love Chevy's attempts at cheating during the exam ("I can't take the pressure, I can't, I can't take it!!!"), their training regiment (particularly the climactic "Bottom Gun" drill and their a-little-too-intense ride in the centrifuge), and Chevy's attempt at spinning the interrogation scene as mentioned above ("Why am I here? Why are you here; why is anyone here? I believe it was John-Paul Satre who said...how do you spell Satre?").

Did Ackroyd & Chase work in any other movies together? if they didn't, they should have.


Austin Millbarge: Find a rock! Go the the SatScram terminal! Smash that thing!
[Fitz-Hume smashes terminal]
Emmett Fitz-Hume: It's broken.
Austin Millbarge: Bring it here.
[Fitz-Hume shrugs and walks towards Milbarge holding rock instead of the terminal]
Austin Millbarge: Not the rock!

Russian Interregator #2: Every minute you don't tell us why you are here, I cut off a finger.
Emmett Fitz-Hume: Mine or yours?
Russian Interregator #2: Yours.
Emmett Fitz-Hume: Damn!

Austin Millbarge: [Listening to faint music] It's... ”Soul Finger" by the Bar Kays
Emmett Fitz-Hume: They must be havin' a hard time getting gigs.

The in-joke being that Dan Ackroyd is a big soul & blues fan and 'Soul Finger' contains the riff they used for the Ghostbusters theme.

I know they were both in Nothing But Trouble ('91). If you look closely in that movie, Dan Aykroyd had a weiner for a nose. Would've loved to see Chevy as a 5th Ghostbuster.

I picked up the Spies Like Us and Nothing But Trouble DVD Double Feature. Ackroyd calls Trouble a misfire, but I thought it was weirdly funny. John Candy, Ackroyd, Chase...it just does not get much better than those guys. I think Ackroyd was actually one of the twins Bobo or Lil' Debble.

Great quotes from 'Spies' guys...you rattled off the classics!

"Well, of course, their requests for subsidies was not Paraguayan in and of it is as it were the United States government would never have if the president, our president, had not and as far as I know that's the way it will always be. Is that clear?"

They were also both in Caddyshack II.

Chevy was in an AAMI advertisement here in Australia in which he played an American tourist who is an incompetent driver. He is watching a television show about bad drivers on his television in his hotel room and it then focuses on one particularly bad example who keeps running everybody else off the road with his appalling driving with the host saying, "Check out this bozo. Where did he get his driver's licence?" To which Chevy responds derisively "Los Angeles, pal." And then Chevy discovers to his shock as well as disbelief that it is in fact him.

Hard to believe Fitz-Hume's role was originally intended for Belushi. But as with Venkman, it ultimately ended up better in another set of hands.

Did anybody spy at all Bob Hope's cameo appearance? He features as himself, as does writer/journalist Edwin Newman.

Just saw a Bio on him. Apparently his father was very mean to him. His whole family treated him like crap. They sent him away to boarding school and that's where his comedy sprang to life. They also said that when you watch the movie "Fletch" that it's the "real" Chevy Chase. He ad-libbed most of the movie...

[Smile]

Well, you know what they say, comedy springs from sadness and tragedy--in Chevy's case living through an ugly divorce and having to put up with an insane mother and a sociopathic stepfather. It's all an eternal quest for true happiness than likely you can never have.
