* From ''Film/TheCowboys'', Jebediah Nightlinger is about to be killed by Asa Watts. Knowing that the BigDamnHeroes are on their way, he asks for a moment to make peace with God, then he prays aloud:
-->'''Jebediah Nightlinger:''' I regret trifling with married women. I'm thoroughly ashamed at cheating at cards. I deplore my occasional departures from the truth.

''[looks directly at Asa Watts]'' ...and those I am about to.

* ComicBook/YTheLastMan has an interesting variation, where the apology is not over anything violent... Yorick apologizes to a girl for the two times he kissed her. Then he interrupts her confusedly asking when the second time was, with a kiss.
