-->''(Cue video of Matt, one of the co-owners, slapping Dave, screaming expletives, and yelling "he's military, mother f***er" and trying to bribe "Syck," the bouncer, with a $10 an hour raise if he throws Dave through a window. Taffer continues.)''
--> '''Taffer:''' [[KickTheDog You get a $10 raise per hour if you throw your own employee through a glass window]]... Your bar isn't what's wrong, [[BrutalHonesty your character is what's wrong.]] The problem is [[StupidEvil you guys think this is okay.]] You guys are a mess. My tolerance for an owner hitting an employee is zero. You have no responsibility. None. You see, I have a reputation and I have to protect it. And you will destroy it, just like you destroyed your own. The ultimate ''coup de grâce'' is an owner hitting an employee. I am not going to rescue a bar, and then read in a newspaper that somebody got hurt here next week. I won't have any part of it. Since I've been here, you guys have proven to me you don't have the fundamentals to begin running this business, and have proved to me how irresponsible you are. So here's the deal. I'm leaving. I am not rescuing your bar. My advice to you is this, as another human being; you need some help and you need to pull your lives together. And then maybe you can save your business. You need a counselor, not a bar professional. But I'm done. This is the first bar rescue I've ever walked out on. You blew it. [[ScrewThisImOutofHere I'm gone. Good night.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WackyParentSeriousChild:
** Chilleen's has both owners alcoholics whose antics make it difficult for their teenage daughter who's trying to help them keep the bar business afloat. It's until they sobered up that things gotten better for them all.
** It's clear that Lonie of Underground Wonderbar is rather eccentric, but is too stubborn to accept Taffer's help. Her adult son Jordan has to convince her to let Taffer do his business if they want to keep the business running.

''Bar Rescue'' is a reality show that first aired on [[Creator/SpikeTV Spike]] (before it's rebrand to Creator/ParamountNetwork) on July 17, 2011. The show revolves around Jon Taffer, an expert food & beverage industry consultant and one of six members of the Nightclub Hall of Fame, going around to failing bars, figuring out what is wrong with them and how to fix them. Yes, this is basically ''Series/KitchenNightmares'', but [[RecycledInSpace with bars!]] Despite this, ''Bar Rescue'' is a pretty interesting watch, due in no small part to the "bar science" constantly shown through Taffer's planning. Of course, there is also a lot of drama with owners.

** This has, over the years become the apparent case of Piratz Tavern. It was doing better for a while, taking advantage of being a unique niche bar, earning about average or above average reviews. But neither Taffer nor the Piratz' crew have anything nice to say of each other; Taffer thinks they're a sinking ship and they think he's an arrogant blowhard. In April 2015, it seems they are indeed closed for good; however, the owners are still in the bar business (their new bar is called "Bar Refuge"), and it would seem they've buried the hatchet with Taffer, as he calls on them for recon in a later episode.

They also return on an episode of his Back to the Bar series and admit to him that he was actually correct on several fronts about them and that they have more fully embraced his lesson with their new bar.

* TheAlcoholic:
** Unfortunately, quite a few owners have resorted to sampling their own goods, something that Taffer has very little patience for. Two especially noticeable examples were Tim in "The Olive Pit" and both owners in "Chilleen's". The latter example was so bad that by the time Taffer had his initial meeting with the owners, they were so intoxicated that one of the owners, Donna, admitted the next day she didn't even remember the meeting. Needless to say, Taffer threatened to walk out if either owner had another drink the entire time he was there. He brought a breathalyzer in to test the owners' blood alcohol content every day during his stay, and also set them up with an addiction counselor.
