As an Emmy-winning editor of Modern Family, Ryan Case has a professionally tuned sense of comic timing — and the Twitter sass to match — but it took a cosmic coincidence to put Case in a seat behind a severely drunken passenger so lacking in self-awareness that if she were a character on TV, we’d laugh the writers out of the room.

Oh did we mention that Case’s flight had a wifi connection? Thank you, cosmos.

Over the course of nearly four hours, Case pulled no punches while observing “the worst person in the world” — 64 tweets in all, each more hysterically appalling than the one before.

We won’t steal any more of her thunder, other than to say yes, she got a photo. It’s toward the bottom, but don’t worry, you’ll make it there — just enjoy the saga unfolding in real time, as we did early Monday morning:

Sitting behind the worst person in the world.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She was watching Hawaii 5.0 so loudly in her earphones that her seat mate asked her to turn it down. Worst move he ever made.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She apologized in the loudest, drunkest voice ever “SORRY ITS MY 1ST TIME NOT IN 1ST CLASS” & hasn’t stopped talking since.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I want to use mind control to make the flight attendant put tranquilizers in the double rum & coke she just ordered.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She keeps saying “I know David Guetta” in a prideful way.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I’m tweeting this so one of you will fund my defense team at my eventual murder trial.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

You guys, she goes to Vegas all the time and her table is always next to the DJ.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

After saying “MY ARAB FRIENDS” so many times she slurred “is that SO racist?” then kept on saying it

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She missed her intended flight and ended up here. She has a window seat and I’m in a middle. The universe has wronged me.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She invited herself on her seat mate’s Vegas trip.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

It baffles her that her seat mate doesn’t drink. She’s GRILLING him about it and sloshing her drink at him and I think trying to bone him

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

“I feel like in Dubai every car I sat in is a Range Rover.” – this girl

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She said “I have a very racist view of all Middle East.” She’s talking to a middle Eastern man, also mocking his accent.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

After awkward silence following a particularly racist comment miraculously came, “anyways am I talking your ear off?” & trying to bone again

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She keeps trying to take his photo & claims he looks just like her friend who’s GORGEOUS.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

97th time she’s asked “YOU DONT DRINK DO YOU?!”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I refuse to believe this girl has any friends.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s throwing business cards at him.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

“Oh those are my Tom Fords.”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She thought she lost her shoes then whooped loudly when she found them as if they weren’t 6 inches in front of her.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She just went to the bathroom. My greatest hope is she passes out in there for the duration of the flight.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I forgot the joy of silence there for a while.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I can hear her trying to beg the flight attendant in back for something, undoubtedly world peace. I’m kidding it’s vodka.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Fantasizing about the part in the movie Airplane! where passengers lined up with weapons. She’s back.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She just returned with beer and made her seat mates listen to a toast. She calls them “buddy” now.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

During her time in the bathroom, she forgot if her seat mate drinks or not. Again.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She asked if he’s ever been to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She said to him “ill take you. We can never be together but we’ll be good friends.” He has to be distraught.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Her Hawaii 5.0 is back on. May it lull her into the deepest sleep a train wreck has ever known.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Now she’s cackling and clapping at The Mysteries of Laura.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s taken control of her seat mate’s TV and is making him watch The Mysteries of Laura.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s listing all the things she wouldn’t be allowed to do in her seat mate’s country. She should go there if the list includes speaking.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She is taking 20 minutes to pay for her new drink. The flight attendant may rob me of the joy of this murder.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s pointing stuff out to seat mate on the interactive map. “The only thing good here is Vegas.”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

You guys she just slipped up and revealed she’s been married before and is freaking out now in the aftermath.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Someone married her.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She just kissed his neck twice. Look out.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

The guy in front of her just shouted at her. He’s a true hero.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

The couple in front of her are shouting at her. She’s slurring “what is first class? I’ve never been on it.”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She called this guy’s wife classless and “to shut the F up”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She called his wife a bitch. I don’t think I’ll have to kill her.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

“This is what the F happens when you don’t fly first class.” she shrieked.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

The flight attendant is confronting her abt several complaints made about her and says if she has another incident she’s calling authorities

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s been asked to stop speaking

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Her response was “they’re not on my level anyway”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Then she muttered “bitch” and it’s getting very real

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She just got yelled at so publicly.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s incapable of being quiet, like a toddler but not cute.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s confronting the people in front of her again with many “shut the F ups”. I can’t wait to see her in cuffs.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Police are meeting the aircraft.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

“I’m not allowed to talk any more.” she talked.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I’m starting to think Abdul won’t marry her!

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

We land soon and I hope I can get a pic of her in cuffs to end this saga.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I think she’s passed out on Abdul.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

We’ve landed. She confirmed with Abdul that he has her digits. Don’t hold your breath, Nadia. Her name is Nadia.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

She’s trying to use her phone but she’s so wasted she doesn’t realize the flashlight is on.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

God only knows what she’s texting her “friends”

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

A police car just pulled up.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Loud phone call. Surprising. pic.twitter.com/WzoK0ApyDy

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

4 cops are with her now.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

The amount of empty Titos vodka bottles under her seat was CHILLING.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Abdul sits at baggage claim, naked and afraid, looking over his shoulder constantly. LOL

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

I saw her kiss you, bro. To be fair though he RAN ASAP.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014

Not to be too Nadia about this, but I wish Abdul could have a stiff drink right about now.

— Ryan Case (@film114) September 29, 2014
