vast American JFK airport just as his nation, Krakozia, has fallen in a
military coup. Therefore his papers, passport, visa, currency are all
worthless. His country no longer exists, and he cannot go forward or go back.
The film has all the time in the world. Just like Viktor Navorski. He isn’t

“What are you saying? It’s in your files. How?”
“Yes. We have a system of finding out who’s overdue.”
“GOD! This is too much.”
“Madam, I am sorry. I am following orders. I have to inform you are overdue.”

“Pay you? And if I refuse?”
“Well, in that case, Sir, we’d have no option but to cut yours off.”
“And what would my wife do then?” the husband asks.
“I don’t know. I guess she’d have to use a candle.

A young husband and wife were sunning nude on a beach when a wasp buzzed into the woman’s vagina. The husband covered her with a coat, pulled on his shorts, carried her to the car and made a dash for the hospital.
After examining her, the doctor explained that the wasp was too far in to be reached with forceps. He suggested the husband try to entice it out by putting honey on his penis, penetrating her and withdrawing as soon as he felt the wasp.
The man agreed to try, but because he was so nervous, he couldn’t rise to the occasion. “if neither of you object,” the medic said, “I could give it a try.“ Under the circumstances, both agreed. The doctor quickly undressed, slathered on some honey and mounted the woman. The husband watched with increasing alarm as the doctor’s thrust continued for several long minutes. “Hey, Doctor… What the hell is happening?”
“Change of plans,” The physician panted. “I’m going to drown the little bastard!.“
