But as they say, ‘If she dies, she dies.'” (Paulson is 32 years younger than Taylor.).

She might typically ask of the crew, “How long have you been doing this?” Occasionally they will quip, “This is our first day” just to tease her. Pilots familiar with her phobia will often whisper her name “Saaarrraaah” over the cabin PA system during a flight coordinates update.
