Movie Quotes

Martin Ward:
[in French] Are you able to determine...
[in French] The height he fell from? Depends on the speed of the helicopter.
David Bouchard:
[in French] Who said anything about a helicopter?
[in French] Me, I could've sworn I just said helicopter. You see, an airplane goes too fast. He'd be cut in two, without your help. A failed parachute would still be attached. Hanglider straps are too complicated. You really have to want to kill yourself. The air-balloon festival hasn't started yet. If it was a stork, he would've been caught in a 46-year traffic jam. So, helicopter. But to reply to your question, 80 metres max. Or 236 feet, 4 and 7/8s inches for you. An inert body in free fall goes at 30 metres a second. Looking at this mess, I'd say a minimum of 25 and a max of 80. My feeling is that it's not 60. At 30 meters a second, the fall would take exactly 2 seconds. And that's too round a figure. I just don't feel it. Nothing in life should be so precise. Maximum 80 metres.
