Getting Jiggered with Richard

In his inimitable style, Richard covered the Air Show in Farnborough, England on July 22, 2002 for CNN Live Today.

Let's listen in, shall we?

QUEST: Absolutely. So there you are. We have seen a plane land. We are going to see -- there is another one taking off in a moment, Kyra, and I'm absolutely jiggered. Remember that phrase, you are going to hear it a lot up Farnborough.

KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: All right, I'm feeling very jiggered now, Richard Quest. I hear you've got the company jet. You were able to come in on the CNN plane. You still have it -- are you still next to it?

QUEST: No, we don't have the company jet, actually. We have flown it off. I didn't know you wanted to see the company jet. I'll tell you what, if you come back -- well, I promise I will have the CNN corporate jet for you. We did have it here earlier. I'm sorry.

PHILLIPS: That's all right.

QUEST: I tell you, we may have the other -- the really big corporate jet. Look at that one. Now, I wonder what member of CNN management is arriving in that particular corporate jet at that end of the runway.

PHILLIPS: Definitely not you or me, Richard. We didn't get that in our contracts.

QUEST: Well, if you did, your agents are doing jolly good better than mine. I barely got a pair of roller blades and a bicycle.


PHILLIPS: All right, Richard Quest, with his head in the clouds there at the airshow. We will check in with you again, I promise. I will be looking forward to seeing the jet that you came in on, all right, Richard?

QUEST: All right, Kyra. I'm jiggered remember, jiggered.

PHILLIPS: Getting jiggered with it. All right, Richard, thank you.
