Some variation of that phrase is spoken throughout fiction by characters caught between a rock and [[ToServeMan a slobbering monstrosity trying to eat them]]. For obvious reasons, it's quite common in animated comedies featuring animal characters, too. The phrase is not usually expected to actually dissuade the predator from attacking--often, not even by the character in question, who'll likely consider it quite radical and far-fetched--but it ''can'' be good for stalling, giving our heroes more time to think of an effective means of escape before they're [[EatingTheEnemy eaten by the enemy.]]
