* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Ted Striker says that he was in the Air Force, but the flashback in the Drambuie bar has him wearing a US Navy dress uniform (And soldiers aren't supposed to wear their dress uniforms in bars anyway). Of course, had he been wearing the dark blue USAF dress uniform, the subsequent ''Film/SaturdayNightFever'' joke [[RuleOfFunny wouldn't have worked.]] He later shows up in an Army hospital, although that could've been justified if he was in WWII, in which he would've been part of the US Army Air Corps, but he's too young[[note]]''Zero Hour'', the movie that ''Airplane!'' is a parody of, was made in the 1950s, and the Ted in that movie did explicitly serve as a pilot in WWII[[/note]], and they didn't have disco back then...ahh, [[MST3KMantra screw it and enjoy the movie!]]

* AcceptableTargets: American film, slams American city. ->'''Ted Striker:''' It was a rough place - the seediest dive on the wharf. Populated with every reject and cutthroat from Bombay to Calcutta. It was worse than Detroit.

** Johnny. Just...Johnny. But primarily the RunningGag where McCroskey and others ask him to fetch some coffee by asking "how about some coffee" to which he always replies "No thanks!"

* TheRemake: The plot and much of the "straight" dialogue were taken from ''Zero Hour!''. Here's [[http://www.rogermwilcox.com/zero_hour.html the dialog script]], so you can see for yourself. The lines that also appear in ''Airplane!'' are in boldface.
