Are there any jokes from any funny movies that you still don't get?

I was watching Airplane again and I was trying to figure out one of the jokes in the movie. It's where a boy named Joey Hammond is escorted into the cockpit by Elaine. Captain Oveur then gives Joey a model of the plane they're flying in and asks if he's been in a cockpit before. Joey answers that he's never been in a plane before. Then the questions get weird…

“Have you ever seen a grown man naked?”
“Do you hang around in gymnasiums?”
“Do you like movies about gladiators?
”Have you ever been in a Turkish prison?"

I'm wracking my brains on this one… O_O

I must be pathetic… It was years before I figured out the scene where Elaine is inflating the automatic pilot, then having a smoke with it afterwards…

It's Gay inuuendo

Seeing a naked man is obvious
hanging out in gymnasiums i.e The Village People's “YMCA”
Movies about Gladiators: A ton of muscley, scantily-clad men.
Turkish prison no doubt means something else.

Reference to fantasies of being raped by prison guards… Lawrence of Arabia is meant to have a fictional account of his rape (by Turks when he was captured), in his autobiography.
