Is that where the conception took place?

For me, the Twidiots were the laughiest part of the article.

I used to think such a thing, public birth, would be quite embarrassing.  Then several women tell me that when they were in severe labor, they didn't care if the entire freaking world had a front seat.

That kid was born for NYC...

"Hey, I'm gettin' born here!"

Can you imagine how much money she saved?

According to a Paste Magazine article on movie ad libs:

"A real-life taxi driver ignored the barricades and filming signs around the area and drove straight through filming, almost hitting Dustin Hoffman. Lucky for him, and us, he has quick reflexes. His quick thinking and improvised acting introduced us to this notorious scene in cinema giving New Yorkers a reputation that's lasted for 43 years and counting."

The water was cold: According to a Paste Magazine article on movie ad libs:



yeah but aren't there also accounts that they did several takes?  great scene don't get me wrong but i thought that was an urban legend in itself.

i think my favorite ad lib is jim carrey's chicken skin to the face in "Cable Guy";  "silence.....of the lambs!"  you can see matthew broderick crack.

and also, people cite harrison ford's "i know" in ESB, but, isn't the story that Ford told Lucas after several takes of "i love you too", that he wanted to try something different?  if it was kinda planned, is it not an ad lib?

Frankentots: Can you imagine how much money she saved?


Not a cent. The EMTs loaded her up and took her to the nearest ho$pital (Mt $inai I'd guess) for "observation", without a doubt. The only bill she saved was the OBGYN but, there's still going to be a follow up there, and now she owes for the ambulance ride and the EMTs.

"I walked down the block and watched someone give birth in the middle of street. New York is weird. "

New York is weird?  How about you standing around watching someone give birth is weird.  Jesus how about you make sure they are in good hands and go about your day.

Basically.  Doctors, nurses, students...all sorts of people are in and out of your room in a hospital, so it gets to the point that you just don't really give a damn and just want it all over.

But was she hot? I'm concerned.

This is right outside Hunter College, so there's never a shortage of plugged in, hipster young adults in this area to document the area.

You were born in the city
Concrete under your feet
It's in your moves, it's in your blood
You're a man of the street

When I am walking in town and drop my hotdog on the sidewalk, I leave it or pick it up and throw it away.

It would be ashame to have to do that to a baby.

This, except for when I was in labour for my son and a male intern patted my knee and said "it's not that bad".  I almost ripped his arm off and I made it very clear I did not want nor need him in the room.

Babies born in taxis, cars, elevators and other "well I guess this is happening now" situations have very good outcomes.  It is the prolonged, not-sure-if-this-is-happening-or-if-it-is-just-the-pitocin talking births that can go South fast.

H31N0US: Not a cent. The EMTs loaded her up and took her to the nearest ho$pital (Mt $inai I'd guess) for "observation", without a doubt. The only bill she saved was the OBGYN but, there's still going to be a follow up there, and now she owes for the ambulance ride and the EMTs.


No anesthesia, though, which is around $5-10K, and a lot less in the way of "hospital charges" like fetal monitoring cuffs, absorbent pads, and all the pre-birth rigamarole.

According to the Daily Mail, a woman swiped her taxi and she was forced to give birth on the sidewalk. Picture of mom in article.
