From the files of Stars, They’re Just Like Us: Maya Rudolph can recite lines from Airplane.

Appearing on Thursday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Rudolph explained how she watched the classic 1980 comedy so many times as a child that she had memorized a key sequence by third grade: the jive talk scene.

And with that revelation, Rudolph mimicked the scene, playing all three parts, including Barbara Billingsley. As host Jimmy Kimmel remarked after Rudolph finished, if there’s ever a need to remake Airplane, Rudolph can probably help out.

Rudolph, who has four children with director Paul Thomas Anderson, told Kimmel she showed her children Airplane for the first time this past summer. They loved it.
