->''"Cyrene? 'ow am I s'posed ta work on [[DeathWorld dat burny chunk 'o soot?]] It ain't like I can hides in da lava! Mork knows, [[NoodleIncident I ain't tryin' DAT trick again]]."''
-->-- '''Spookums''', ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar: [[ExpansionPack Retribution]]''

A stock phrase used after the hero has done some daring do that obviously was very painful and/or taxing. In saying this, the Hero is acknowledging that he is not open to repeating the experience as he tries to recover.

It's a form of LampshadeHanging to the kind of exaggerated heroics often displayed in action shows. Can also be used tongue-in-cheek in response to a particularly absurd suggestion.

Contrast with WasntThatFun.

* [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad]] says this after he removes his mask to prove that it is, in fact, his face, and that there's nothing but bone, muscle, and veins beneath it.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* In a "Frogger" episode on ''SaturdaySupercade'', Frogger used his tongue to prevent a fatal accident. Unfortunately, the only thing he can latch onto is a cactus and afterward, his tongue is painfully perforated with cactus needles. Cue trope title.
* In one ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode, ComicBook/{{Metamorpho}} [[DisneyDeath apparently sacrificed his life]] to stop a monster. Fortunately, Metamorpho is able to reconstitute himself with a satisified but weary comment, "I'm not doing that again."
** And when the Flash finally [[IAmNotLeftHanded hits top speed]] to defeat the BigBad and the rest of the JusticeLeague pulls him from the brink, we get the page quote. Earlier in the same episode, this is his reaction to the way he took out his evil, Braniac-generated doppelganger (punching through its chest and vibrating until it exploded, knocking him for a loop in the process).
* In the ''WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGobots'' episode "Et Tu, Cy-Kill?" Leader-1 ends up having to fly in jet mode, at jet speeds, through a huge corridor filled with stone columns, dodging all of them. Afterward he [[TransformingMecha transforms]], falls to his knees, and says, "I couldn't do that twice."
