While I understand the humor "ahh we are all gonna die!!!" The reality is that pilots are trained to be very cool under pressure. In many situations the pilots maintain calm radio communication while following the check list provided for any given situation. You can pretty much peek into any aircraft and see a check list tucked into a pocket somewhere. In the scenario the pilot would need to follow the engine shut down procedure followed by an engine restart procedure, assuming there was enough time to do so. Following the check list would assist them in troubleshooting the cause of the failure.

It entirely depends. The most likely place for an engine out is takeoffs and landings, when the plane is low, slow and changing throttle. We call those critical phases of flight (you can probably guess why). When you have an engine out in those conditions we ususally say "fuck the checklist" and fly the plane without power (gliding) into an off field landing (crash) unless we can make it to a runway.

A good landing is one you walk away from, a great landing is when you can use the plane after it.

Yep. If a pilot is shouting, he might be mad, but he's not driving a plane that's in trouble.

He's saying something like "It's hot in here. Who turned the damn fan off?"
