* Alex taking out all four of the North Korean spies through a series of [[BatmanGambit Batman Gambits]] and XanatosSpeedChess, with only objects lying around his house, his pet rat, and his brother's talking parrot. By the time the police arrive, three out of four of the spies have been caught in his traps, with the leader being caught by the parrot a bit later. No matter what you think of this movie, there's no denying Alex is one [[Badass]] kid.
