Buondì, WRF.
Nel film 'The Greatest Beer Run Ever' Chickie, il protagonista sta parlando con la famiglia della sua decisione di partire, come civile, per portare delle birre ai suoi amici che stanno combattendo in Vietnam, e discute con la sorella, che invece manifesta per la pace e il ritiro delle truppe americane. Interviene il padre, che ridendo dice la frase in oggetto, di cui non riesco a capire il significato, e fa ridere anche la figlia. Queste le battute:

CHRISTINE - If you really want to support them, help us get 'em the hell out of there.
CHICKIE - Oh my God, you're like a broken record.
MR.DONOHUE - You know I can't figure out how he's gonna get the Clydesdales on the boat.
MRS.DONOHUE - You two, don't laugh at him! You'll talk him into this foolishness and get him killed!

Grazie!

    Maybe it's a reference to this:

    Why does Budweiser Use Clydesdales in Their Ads? A Quick History

    The Budweiser Clydesdales refers to teams of Clydesdale horses used to pull restored turn-of-the-century beer wagons for Budweiser.

    Ciao, Joan & Charles.
    Allora ho paura che dovrò cambiare completamente la battuta, in Italia nessuno farebbe questo collegamento, come non l'ho fatto io.
    Grazie mille! :)

    Sì, mi hanno mandato lo script revised e c'è questa nota:
    (Clydesdales = a joke, the Budweiser Clydesdales refers to teams of Clydesdale horses used to pull restored turn-of-the-century beer wagons for Budweiser, so he is saying that there won't be space for the horses and their beer wagons on the ship)
    Grazie ancora.

    They still use the Clydesdale beer wagon team in their advertising. We live near Busch Gardens Williamsburg (it’s an amusement park run by the Busch corporation) and they have a team of the horses there along with the wagon. They appear at events in the area, too
