The single-line equivalent of a Wham Episode, where a single line of dialogue comes from out of nowhere and changes the situation drastically.

  • Haruhi Suzumiya: "...that's why I'm going to kill you and see how Miss Suzumiya reacts!"
  • Code Geass: "For example, if I told you to kill all the Japanese, it wouldn't matter how you felt about it."
  • Chapter 11 of Watchmen. You know the line.
  • Some others I forgot.

Some examples that I don't think should qualify are "Do you like me?" or anything to do with the big reveal in Fight Club. Too spread-out.
