The George Kennedy character Patroni has to clear the primary runway of a 707 jetliner stuck in an ice ditch, using the aircrafts engines.
His assistant sitting next to him in the cockpit says, "Sir, The book says it can't be done", but Patroni guns the engines anyway and the plane eventually lurches forward, out of the ditch.
Afterwards, the assistant says to Patroni, "The instruction book said that was impossible!".
To wit Patroni responds, "That's one nice thing about the 707. She can do everything but read."
