Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) is a comedy written and directed by John Hughes about two very different men, uptight executive Neal Page (Steve Martin) and jovial salesman Del Griffith (John Candy), who embark on an accident-prone Thanksgiving journey together.

Life Lesson:

“Don’t sweat the small stuff … and it’s all small stuff.”

Richard Carlson

Movie Scene:

Del: “You have any idea how glad I am I didn’t kill you?”

Neal: “Do you have any idea how glad I’d be if you had?”

Del: “Oh, come on pal, you don’t mean that. Remember what I said about going with the flow? … Like a twig on the shoulders of a mighty stream.”

  1. I haven’t seen the movie…Very good motto for life though….
