Awesome / Dirty Harry


  • The badass line to end all badass lines from the first film:
    I know what you're thinking, punk. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, 'punk?'
    • Not to mention that when Harry starts to berate Scorpio he says "punk" with such force the actor's hair is blown back.
      • Even better when the bank robber from earlier in the film says "I gots to know...". He needs to know whether Harry really did fire six shots or only five. Harry aims the gun at the man's head, he braces for death, Harry pulls the trigger...*click*. Harry just smirks and walks away, while the man is left muttering "Son of a bitch..." to himself.
  • Scorpio's theme music.
  • When Scorpio is psychotically gleeful at the fact that he's getting away with kidnapping a whole bus load of children, only to see Harry Callahan's figure in the distance, standing on a bridge and watching.
  • Real Life example: Clint Eastwood did his own stunts, including leaping from the bridge onto the bus.
