      • The director's cut version - * boom!* "...I ain't that good."
    • Ash cutting off his own possessed hand in the film prior to that seemed like more of a "Holy Shit!" moment. His subsequent mounting of a chainsaw to the stump can only be described as "Groovy."

      • Or in Evil Dead II, when he responds with "Swallow this." [Shotgun blast].

  • Lord Arthur's stand in Army of Darkness.
