The Day After (1983 TV Movie)
Georgann Johnson: Helen Oakes
Helen Oakes : My God. It's 1962 all over again. The Cuban Missile Crisis. Do you remember Kennedy on television, telling Khrushchev to turn his boats around?
Dr. Russell Oakes : "Full retaliatory response." He didn't bat an eye.
Helen Oakes : We were in New York, in bed... just like this, remember? 118th street.
Dr. Russell Oakes : Meatball sandwiches from Sharky's.
Helen Oakes : Your last year's residency. I swear we that made Marilyn that night.
Dr. Russell Oakes : We got up, went to the window to look for the bombs.
Helen Oakes : It didn't happen. It's not going to happen now.
Dr. Russell Oakes : Nah. People are crazy, but not *that* crazy.
Helen Oakes : Well... do you want to know from crazy? The Donnelly's left today for Guadalajara.
Helen Oakes : Guadalajara?
Helen Oakes : I swear it. I spoke to Herb as they were pulling out. He said they were dovetailing their vacation with the rising international tensions.
Dr. Russell Oakes : Aw, cut it out!
Helen Oakes : I'm not kidding. Well, they took their Vietnamese maid with them. And that rotten little barking dog with the pushed-in face.
Dr. Russell Oakes : [chuckles] Oh, what about their little combination tractor/lawnmower/golfcart with the silver hubcaps?
Helen Oakes : [laughs] Probably.
Helen Oakes : [sighs] What if it does happen? What'll we do?
