  2. Okay, how abou’ this then:

    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’
    We gonna do what they say can’t be done
    We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there
    I’m east bound, just watch ol’ Bandit run

    Or for those in the east –

    West bound and down, eighteen wheels are rollin’ ,
    we’re gonna do what they say can’t be done.
    We’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there.
    I’m west bound, just watch ol’ “Bandit” run.

    1. From “Smokey and the Bandit”? I remember seeing the movie (or parts of it) and nothing memorable sticks out. Please tell me I don’t have to watch it because nothing in there would make a good “Great Moments in Cinema History” comic. I have an entire list of those now including “Aliens”, “Poltergeist”, “Logan’s Run”, and there has to be something from the original “Planet of the Apes”. Next up though is from “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.” Not sure when it will appear, February is rapidly disappearing so probably in March.

      1. Youngster!!! In the 70’s that’s what constituted “action packed.” The epitome of movie magic and stunt driving. None of this feeble CGI stuff.
        (They did actually do some crazy stunts in that one. I even remember “How did they” videos, I think.)

        1. You aren’t doing anything to convince me my one-line summation of the decade (“Everyone was roached.”) is not accurate.

          Still, thank goodness social media didn’t exist then. I have a clear memory of sixth-grade-me wearing tight white bell-bottom jeans, and thinking that was cool…

      2. Two scenes stick out in my mind. Sally Field changing clothes in the front seat of a 78 (I think) Trans-Am and Jerry Reed, after a brawl in a road-side tavern, laughing as he heads towards a line of motorcycles. The rest is just a standard Burt Reynolds, 70/80’s era comedy. Amusing, but nothing to compare to Blazing Saddles.

        Smokey II is weak by comparison and III is a total waste of time.

        1. So, no, then.

          For some reason your description reminds me of what we thought of for Caddyshack. We see a nondescript brown object floating in a pool, and Q scoops it up and says to the crowd, “Don’t worry, it’s just a Hugo” and then everyone runs away in terror. I can’t remember why we rejected it. I think it was too hard for the visual department. How do you show a spork scooping something up?

          After writing that out, I suddenly just imagined it. To Scrivener! Although it IS a little hard on the Hugo, so maybe Q will scoop up something else…

        2. Well, there is the scene where Sheriff Buford T. Justice (wow, I can’t believe I just named him from memory) encounters the local sheriff he’s been talking to on the radio. Who just happens to be a black man (without sounding like one).

          Buford T. Justice: Hey boy, where’s Sheriff Branford?
          Sheriff Branford: I AM Sheriff Branford.
          Buford T. Justice: Ooo, Hee-Hee. For some reason or another, you sounded a little taller on radio, hee-hee.

          Or him criticizing his idiot son. (This one probably won’t work on your comic, but it’s a favorite of mine.)
          Buford T. Justice: There’s no way, *no* way that you came from *my* loins. Soon as I get home, first thing I’m gonna do is punch yo mamma in da mouth!
