TFT's Movie Quote of the Day - November 4

Day 4 -- the second-to-last day of Comedy Week -- features Spaceballs, the 1987 Mel Brooks satire that takes on everything from Alien to Star Wars to Star Trek and Planet of the Apes.

One line always gave my brother and me a good chuckle. Perhaps it's because we were kids and actually managed to get the joke, but the fact that Dark Helmet's Number Two was named "Colonel Sanders" always cracked us up, even more so when the insidious leader questioned his second-in-command's bravery concerning Ludicrous Speed.

"What's the matter, Colonel Sanders? Chicken?"

Alas, we still wait for Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.
