Captain Oveur Passes Away; RIP, Peter Graves – You Will Alwys be Over Dunn

A sad note for lovers of the movie Airplane:  Peter Graves, who played Captain Oveur (among many, many other roles), passed away over the weekend at the age of 83.  He was responsible for quite possibly the best airline-related scene in movie history:

Oveur: Dunn… gentlemen, let’s get to work.
Curtz: Unger, didn’t you serve under Oveur in the Air Force?
Unger: Not directly. Technically Dunn was under Oveur and I was under Dunn.
Dunn: Yep.
Curtz: So, Dunn, you were under Oveur and over Dunn?
Dunn: Yep.
Oveur: Yes, that’s right. Dunn was over Unger and I was over Dunn.
Unger: So you see both Dunn and I were under Oveur, even though I was under Dunn.
Oveur: Dunn was over Unger and I was over Dunn.
