** Even better. He's the only person in the entire franchise that could be eaten by a Graboid, survive, and the audience will absolutely believe the plausibility of said survival. It's believable simply because this is [[BadAss Burt Freaking Gummer]]. Chuck Norris has nothing on this guy.

** Oh, it gets better. He ''captured one of them alive''. By beating it into submission ''[[{{Badass}} with his bare hands]]'', and then tying it up and throwing it in the back of his truck.

** Earlier, there's his heroic charge to rescue Rhonda when she's caught on some barbed wire and being dragged towards the graboid's mouth. He starts by slamming a pickaxe through the graboid's head, then when that doesn't work he saves her through quick thinking and CuttingTheKnot (or rather, the pants).

Added DiffLines:

** As of Tremors5Bloodlines there is another survivor of being swallowed by a Graboid. He was swallowed whole, head first, and holding a gun. He convinced the Graboid to spit him out by "tickling its insides a little".

---> "Well, when the radios went down I decided to return to the refinery, but en route, I find ''I'M IN AN AMBUSH SITUATION!'' Must have been a couple dozen of these things! Well, I dropped the first wave with semi-auto fire, but they ''[[ZergRush just kept on coming.]]'' Sheer luck most of them were in front of the truck, so [[CombatPragmatist I just popped it into six-wheel]] and [[CarFu ran 'em down]]. The ones that got on board I handled with a combination of small-arms fire and hand-to-hand techniques. [''pulls out two pistols''] ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis I am completely. Out. Of ammo.]]'' [''{{Beat}}''] [[CrazyPrepared That's never happened to me before.]]"

* [[CrazyPrepared Burt Gummer]] is one big walking [=CMoA=], though his most defining moment is probably from the first film, when he and his wife Heather are attacked in their bunker by a Graboid. Listening on the radio the others hear Burt yell, "Jesus Christ!" and think it's all over...then a beat later, they hear gunshots echoing across the valley. Cut back to Burt and Heather going to town on the Graboid with their guns. They run out of ammo, and it looks like it's all over for real...then the camera pans over to the ''gigantic'' {{Wall of Weapons}}. Burt and Heather spend a solid two minutes or so blasting the damn thing with increasingly larger guns, with Burt finally taking it down with an [[{{BFG}} elephant gun]]. He comments "Broke into the wrong goddamn rec room, didn't you, you bastard?" Heather probably would be just as highly regarded if only Reba [=McEntyre=] hadn't cut ties with the franchise at that point.
