A line from "Meet the Parents" diverts an airliner!

An American Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale to San Juan, Puerto Rico has been diverted after a passenger found a suspicious note written on a napkin behind her tray table, an FBI spokeswoman told CNN.

About 40 minutes into the flight, a note saying, "Bomb, bomb, bomb ... meet the parents," was found on a crumpled napkin with a wad of chewing gum in it.

The note could be a reference to the 2000 movie "Meet the Parents," which starred Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro.
