Ray seems to be a walking CMOA with his Big Damn Heroes moments. In the first movie, after briefly being suspected of being the killer, Ray rescues Julie from the real one, Ben Willis. Ben takes Julie onto his boat and begins to sail out to sea, whilist Ray drives a motor boat after them and manages to climb aboard using the fishing net. Ray fights the killer unnarmed, even though the killer is still weilding a meathook, and is eventually knocked off the board. That doesn't stop him. Ray just climbs back aboard and continues the fight until Ben's hand gets caught in the ropes and Ben is pulled over the pulley, catapulting him in the sea and severing his hand. Talk about Hoist by His Own Petard.
The second movie takes it up to Eleven, where Ray realizes Julie (who is in the Bahamas) is in danger, after a brief encounter with Ben, who survived the first movie, Ray walks out of the hospital after getting very little treatment, and buys a gun, and convinces a dock worker to let him borrow a boat. Ray then sails to the Bahamas in a middle of a storm season, and still manages to pull off a Big Damn Heroes moment in the climax. All that with a broken arm and bottle of pain killers.
Julie gets one in the second movie, shooting and pretty much killing Ben Willis. Bonus points for Ben's body falling into the grave he intended for Julie.
