    I knew it was one of the seekers, but wasn't sure which one. Thanks!

    (Meg Ryan sure was hot back then)

    And then the poor bastard died, so you know that kid is probably holding on to that toy even today.

    That movie should have been about Maverick and Iceman both going after Goose's widow. And wooing her through buying the kid more Transformers. :lol

    I did a quick Google but didn't find anything. You can see it pretty clearly for a few moments - Maverick and Goose watch the plane land, Meg Ryan and the kid come out, and Goose gives it to the kid and hugs him.

    I might be motivated to fire up the movie later tonight to give you a time stamp, but I'm pretty surprised there are people who didn't notice it.

    Huh?

    Um, Melanie Griffith was in Working Girl, not Meg Ryan.

    Wow, I can't believed I missed that part of the movie trivia....and to think I know I've seen it probably a dozen times since 87, never occured to me it was Screamer. Wow.

    G.A.P.
