    If someone can get the famous Strother Martin quote correct, word for word, in the next 10 minutes -- WITHOUT A GOOGLE (honor system, please -- I'll buy him or her a beer. You know the quote I'm talking about: the one after the whipping.

    Odds are you don't know it verbatim, though. No one ever gets it right, just like nobody can eat 50 eggs. :p

    Side note: Paul Newman says "a failure to communicate" when he mimics the Captain just before the movie ends.
