Good story. Some comedy. Nice twist with nun. Worth the listening time.

Someone aboard Flight 108 enroute from Central America to New York, has a bomb. It is up to a stewardess and co-pilot to find out who.

Ironic that the stewardess is trying to vet the doctor by giving an anatomy error, and while doing so speaks of "an air pocket." There is no such thing, and a real stewardess would know this and refer to it as "clear air turbulence." Makes her suspect, not him! And that opening chatter from Scotty about "Jolly Green Co-pilot" and such? "Make like this is the army and move!" Ouch. Some very bad writing in this episode.

I agree with Jerry that there was some terrible dialogue in this episode. However, I still enjoyed the episode and how they were deducting who the person could be. I found it interesting that they didn't include the actual person in their list of suspects at the end, even before they found out the gender of the person. I also thought it strange that they got information so piecemeal from the police (or whoever). It was, of course, just a plot device, but not the best one. Not the best episode.
