it's your choice. [ laughter ] wouldn't show business be great if everybody had their original teeth? that's what i'd like to see. all that weird-- you know, some people really probably got some bad teeth, and sometimes you can tell. you know what i do? i watch the actors, and usually the caps end here, and they've got yellow all back here. [ laughter ] yellow on the bottom. i look for that. that's what i do when i'm home alone, and the television is broken. [ laughter ] did you ever eat two chickens in the same day? sometimes you do. can't help it. sometimes at lunch you have a chicken sad then you go to someone's house that evening, and they have chicken. do you ever wonder if the two chickens knew each other? [ laughter ] did you ever notice in a hotel they give you a sewing kit. you know what i do? sew the towels together.

(audience laughing) - the circus? well, fay all our regular flights are booked. we have a charter this afternoon. there's all this paperwork. - i'll give you a moment to think it over. - joe, you better give her what she wants. never underestimate the lure of the bigtop.
the smell of that little car when all 17 clowns pile out. - lowell, how would you know-- - wrong place, wrong time, 'nuf said. (audience laughing) - well, what've you decided? - well, fay, i just can't let you have the afternoon off to go to the circus. - okay, i understand. i quit. what's going on? - i'm 62 years old and i've never been to the circus. what's going on is i want to go to the circus and joe won't let me. - hey, hey, hey, don't blame him, it is a school night. - brian, look, you're not helping. fay just quit because i wouldn't let her go. - well, no, it's really not just about the circus. i mean, i've been thinking about it for months. i'm not getting any younger and there are a lot of things i wanna do, like go on a cruise. maybe take a few classes.
- no, i need more than a vacation. i've been working since i was 20 and i just think it may be the right time for me to retire. - no way, no way, you can't retire. - but brian, my mind's made up. - no, i mean, on what we pay you there is no way you can retire. - i can't believe this, fay. you've been here from the beginning. remember, we started with nothing. it was just you and me and now look at us. it's you, me and brian. - without you, company picnics will be really dull. to make you change your mind? - no, i'm afraid not. it's time for me to move on with my life. - i don't know what to say. - we're gonna miss you. - fay, listen, a few tips about going to the circus. get there early to avoid the crowds. don't fill up on cotton candy. and don't sit up front, the clowns will mess with your mind.
- i just can't bear the thought of fay retiring. i'm gonna miss her. her sweet smile and her cheery voice. just seeing her every morning year after year has made my life a little more special. - by the way, here's what you owe for the party. - what? i hardly know the woman. (audience laughing) - wow, a party like this only means one thing, - hey, fay would want to leave sandpiper just the way she came in. - drunk? (audience laughing) - that was first day jitters. no, i meant plain, simple, not a lot of fanfare. - well, you nailed it. - oh good, lowell's got the cake. let's see. lowell, this was supposed to say good luck fay instead it's just a lot of squiggly lines.
you have to do is relax your eyes, focus on the cake and an image of fay will appear. (audience laughing) - [together] i don't see it. - i don't, oh god, she's naked as a jaybird. (audience laughing) - hi. - wow, casey, those are beautiful. - well, it's the least i could do. in the short time that i've known fay i've grown quite fond of her. - makes me feel bad. i didn't get her anything. - well, actually, you did. here's your credit card back. (audience laughing) oh my god. can't we have just one party on this island without the big sandwich? i mean by now, even you people should be sick of it. - oh wow. when you said you were going all out i figured the all american maybe the fiesta.
- okay, let's get fay in here and get the party started. - would you keep your voice down. she's gonna hear you. - no, no she won't. i sent her out to shovel the slush off the runway. - you sent a woman her age out in the cold to do manual labor? - hey, i didn't want to ruin the surprise. it's her day. (knocking on door) - shh, there she is. come in. - alright, i finished-- - [all] surprise! is this a retirement party? oh, i'm so touched. (gasps) the cordoba. - speech, speech, speech! - wait, wait, wait, before you all get started, i have something to say. (clears throat) this party has got dull written all over it. so, i'll just take a hunk of this to go. see ya, cochran.
if we roasted fay. okay, i'll start, i'll start. boy that fay, how about her breath after lunch? it's, it's bad. - lowell, lowell. - and how about the way she dresses? it's just bad. - lowell. - have you ever driven in a car with her? she drives bad. fay, i think i speak for all of us when i say hing) - fay, there is something that brian and i would like to say. - that's right. - you've always been very special to us. you've been here since the beginning. honestly, without you, i don't think there would have been a sandpiper. - that's right, fay. you're the heart and soul of this airline and we don't know what we're gonna do without you. - just know that no one could ever replace you. - excuse me, i'm here about the job. - yeah, i'll be there in one minute. so, here, it's a little gift.
- so, um, how about a few words, fay? - oh no, i couldn't. - okay, let's eat. - although, i suppose a few words would be in order. it all started in a two story row house in syracuse. today they call them townhouses. in new york they call them brownstones. - oh, that's beautiful, let's eat. (audience laughing) - before we start, can you tell me what the position pays? - absolutely, i think that you'll find our salary is very competitive in today's marketplace. - [fay] my very first trip on an airplane was to albany or was it buffalo? - oh really, i never knew that. i'll be right back. shoot me. what happened with the woman? - we were pretty far apart on the money. - she wanted some? - yeah, yeah, yeah. what am i gonna do? she was the only one that answered the ad. fay is leaving.
i have the perfect person for the job. - really, who? - casey. - no, no, no, no. - why not? - well, to steal a line from lowell, she's bad. (audience laughing) - joe, she's smart, she's a quick learner and she just needs somebody to give her a chance. - but helen, even if i had a severe lapse in judgement and agreed to it, she makes brian nuts. i'd never be able to get him to agree to it. - [fay] let's jump ahead to 1984. reagan was reelected and a lucky former stewardess-- - the woman's lived for many years. not one interesting story. not one. how'd the interview go? - well, she laughed at the salary. - she laughed at the salary, huh? she must have wet herself when you got to the benefits then. (audience laughing) - okay, well, um, i'll leave you two alone 'cause i know you have some business to discuss. - brian, what do you think about casey?
you want me to kick her out? okay, i can do it quietly. - no, no, no. i'm thinking maybe we should ask her if she wants to take fay's old job. - are you out of your, what, casey? oh. - why not? she's smart, she's a quick learner. she just needs someone to take a chance on her. she'll never take the job anyway. - [fay] when he said new bedford, i thought he said new hartford. see you for a second, please? - freedom! - what is it? fay was just going to tell us about the time that she served jan murray a kosher meal. - casey, we wanted to ask you something. we were wondering if, um, uh.
wouldn't want to work for me and brian, would you? - work for you? are you serious? - right, stupid idea, enough said. - i'm flattered. yeah, of course i will. - yeah, but, but, we didn't even tell you about the salary. - well, that doesn't matter. what's important is that you think enough of me to take a chance on someone with no qualifications, no experience and no training. (audience laughing)
- hi. oh, i see your final destination is new orleans. well, that is a beautiful city. now, you make sure to ride the streetcars to the garden district so you can take a walking tour of the homes, okay? bye, bye now. t. - and who was right about it? - c'mon helen-- - who was right? - don't make me say it. now aren't you being a little petty about it? - who was right? - you were. - thank you. - well, gotta go. you just reminded me, i gotta get my dog fixed. (audience laughing) - hey joe, i don't know about casey. i think she's alienating the passengers. you think she's really doing okay? - you kidding me?
eat. - she's been here for three days and she's changed every thing. - yeah, that's right. she's updated our ticketing system. she's put all our files on the computer. and she's even scraped your spitballs off the ceiling. - and on who's authority? the woman't a climber, joe. i miss fay. she wasn't ambitious or efficient. - yeah, i gotta admit it is kinda strange looking over there and not seeing fay. i wonder where she is right now? - are you kidding? she's probably on some cruise, - please, please, i'm getting another cake flashback. (audience laughing) - hey, hey, you guys you gotta listen to this. i made a tape of fay's last days. it's a collection of her quaint sayings, bits of humor, you know, anecdotes. i call it the best of fay. here's one of my favorites. - [voiceover] lowell, watch the counter for a second, i've got to hit the head.
- oh, you know what? the altimeter's on the blink and i can't get another one until tomorrow. - aw, damn, alright. well, go tell casey to cancel the flight. - roger. - this is great, this is great. i mean, not only are we out of business for the day, but now the passengers are gonna be furious. we gotta bail casey out. she's never gonna be able to handle this. - attention sandpiper passengers, i have an announcement. - hey, hey, she's talking. take it outside. (audience laughing) - sandpiper regretfully announces that due to unforeseen circumstances, flight 19 to boston has been cancelled. however, if you will follow me to aero mass, i will be happy to assist you in making alternate arrangements. - i guess she did okay. - okay? yeah, right. i remember fay's first cancellation. i believe her exact words were, "now, do you want to be late, mrs. carter "or do you want to be the late mrs. carter?"
and gave them 50% off vouchers for the next sandpiper flight. - vouchers? we don't get vouchers if we crash. - well, excuse me if i'm wrong, but it just occurred to me, that it was worth the discount to keep them on as loyal customers. and seems to be working because one of the passengers was so grateful, that he gave me these celtics knicks tickets for tonight. - oh, oh, oh, okay, i see. so, because we're grounded you think that you can just take off early and go to a basketball game, huh? , i was going to say that i'm giving them to you and joe. - oh, really? (audience laughing) if we cut out now we can make the opening tipoff. - let's grab a seat on aero mass. - that's not gonna work because i put our passengers on that flight and it's all sold out. - oh great, we get tickets to the celtics game. what, it starts in two hours, what are we gonna do? - there's a 5:00 o'clock ferry to boston. you'll make it in plenty of time. - hey, what do you say we drop a few bucks on the game?
and oakley's in a slump. take the celtics, skip the points. - okay, break's over, get back to work. (ferry horn blasts) - brian, would you move it. i don't want to miss the ferry. - listen, will you relax. we're 10 minutes early, for crying out loud. besides, i don't get a runs like a swiss watch feeling out of this place. - what'd you bring these binoculars for? we've got floor seats, we're five feet away from the action. - yeah, so how else am i gonna look at the cheerleaders - as the big brother, let me give you a little advice. grow up. - hey earl, will you take my 6:00 o'clock ferry tomorrow night? i got a hot date. - a little advice from your big brother. you should get married like i did and settle down already. - hey, i settle down every night, get it? - why can't you grow up and take life more serious? you can't get by forever on your looks. - don't hate me because i'm beautiful.
you of someone? - no, what're you talking about? hey, let me have some change. i wanna get some candy. - attention windsurfer passengers. ferry three to boston is departing from pier one. - now, she looks familiar. - fay? - hi joe. hi brian. - fay, fay, what are you doing here? we thought you retired. - oh, well, i was going to go on a cruise and then it was all booked up so i had a little extra time on my hands and this wonderful opportunity came along. stuck in the engine. we're gonna have to dangle you over the side again. (audience laughing) - um, it's not as bad as it sounds. so, what are you two doing here? - well, we're just going to the celtics game. plane's down. - fay, what are you doing working in a place like this? - well, i know it doesn't look like much on the surface,
what is going on? the truth. - i don't know what you're talking about. - c'mon, standing behind a counter in a terminal making stupid announcements. i mean, what kind of life is that? - alright, um, um. well, it turns out that retirement isn't all that i thought it would be. i mean, i imagined i'd be doing all these wonderful things at to do with myself. i was lonely and i missed everybody. - so, why didn't you just come to us? - oh, how could i? i was so embarrassed. i mean, i made that big fuss about retiring and you threw me that wonderful party and everybody got so teary eyed at my speech. - yeah, the second hour was particularly moving. - fay, we're family.
- i hate this. i'm no good at firing people. - yeah, me either. why do you think you're still working here? (audience laughing) - i'll do it. the look of fear in their eyes when you say, "can i see you in my office?" the way their lower lip starts to quiver when they know it's coming. (audience laughing) (nervous laughter) - so, who's gonna fire her? - fair is fair, i'll flip ya. - you're the one that wanted to fire her since she started here. - she grew on me. i thought she was going to be bossy and overbearing.
