He knows he can't get his hand out in time, so he decides to FaceDeathWithDignity and make a HeroicSacrifice instead, detaching the damaged booster from the ship. His last moments with Fiona are a poignant, heartfelt exchange before he pushes himself and the booster away from the ship and rides it into Pandora's atmosphere, bellowing his CatchPhrase all the while.]] He still thinks that it's an awesome way to go.

* A subversion during the [[WorldWarII Battle of Midway]], a crippled Japanese carrier was in the process of being [[AbandonShip abandoned]] by her crew due to severe damage and fires caused by an American dive bomber attack. An American submarine saw the opportunity to launch a CoupDeGrace on the vulnerable ship (in case the Japanese may have [[DamageControl managed to save her]]). American torpedos of the time [[ReliablyUnreliableGuns being what they were]], the torpedo struck dead on, then promptly [[EpicFail didn't explode]]. The warhead snapped off and sank, leaving the body of the torpedo bobbing in the water, whereupon a Japanese sailor promptly hopped on and [[GallowsHumor pretended to ride it like a horse.]] For their trouble, the submarine crew spent the rest of the day being chased by a Japanese destroyer trying to play whack-a-mole before they escaped to fight another day.
