    The only three things a wingman should ever say are:

    * Two's up.
    * Lead, you're on fire.
    * I'll take the fat chick.



    And in a multi-place aircraft, there are only three things the copilot should ever say:

    * Nice landing, Sir.
    * I'll buy the first round.
    * I'll take the fat chick.




    A new copilot on a bomber was told to only say these three things and to otherwise keep my mouth shut and not touch anything:


    * Clear on the right.
    * Outer (marker) on the double (indicator)
    * I'll eat the chicken. (Crew meals consisted of one steak and one chicken to avoid possible food poisoning of the cockpit crew).

    Sometimes when my wife's driving I'll tell her "clear right" by accident to let her know no traffic is coming... then I feel like an idiot. :lol:

    Hey, don't feel so bad; I do the same thing. Learned it from my father who was a life-long aviator.

    Hey mk don't sell yourself short yet! What's her response to "Clear right"? If she says "Roger that" I'd say your compatibility index is pegged to the right. Lucky Man!!!!!!! :lol:
