Great scene from the Family Guy when Stewie and Brian are on their way to the North Pole and they are having car trouble and run into this Canadian Trucker guy.
Stewie: Yeah, we’re trying to get to the North Pole. I don’t suppose you’re from Triple A, are you?
Canadian Trucker: Who?
Stewie: Triple A, you know, AAA.
Canadian Trucker: Ooh AA, eh? Hey, I just came from AA.
Stewie: Not AA, AAA.
Canadian Trucker: Yeah, that’s what i said, AA, eh.
Stewie: Oh, so you are with Triple A.
Canadian Trucker: Oh no, that’s AAA. I just came from AA, eh.
Brian: Stewie, I just think he’s a drunk.
Stewie: Well drunk or not, can you help us?
Canadian Trucker: I can if you want to join AA, eh.
Stewie: No, I’m already a member of AAA. I need help with the car.
Canadian Trucker: Oooh, I see. Yeah, looks like you have some water leakage. You might need a hose, eh?
Stewie: Jose, Roberta, whatever. If you got some Latinos up here that can fix cars, that’d be great.
Canadian Trucker: No, I mean it looks like you need a part, eh.
Stewie: Well yeah, when it’s fixed we can celebrate, but let’s deal with first things first.
Canadian Trucker: Well I can probably take you to a gas station, eh. You have cash, eh?
Stewie: I don’t know, my name carries a little weight, but I don’t see how that matters here.
Brian: We don’t have enough cash to fix our car. We’re kind of on our way to the North Pole.
Canadian Trucker: Oh, a car won’t take you there anyway. But if you like you can take my snow mobile.
Brian: Really? You’ll just give it to us?
Canadian Trucker: Oh sure! That’s what Canadian hospitality is all about. If you like, you can have all my money and my leg.
I don’t get the “cash, eh?” joke and “my name carries a little weight.” I feel really stupid for not getting this part
It is a play on the word cachet which is pronounced like cash, eh
