Awesome: The Rock
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: An unarmed Mason calmly facing a group of heavily armed Marines; telling Hummel he's a "Fucking idiot",and not flinching when Hummel puts a gun in his face.
  • Goodspeed becoming a Badass:
    • For context, Captain Darrow comes in while Goodspeed is disarming one of the last rockets. Darrow starts to advance around the rocket towards Goodspeed, who backs away around the other side of the rocket.
      Goodspeed: *Holding up the missile's payload of vx* "You shoot me, I drop this, we're both dead."
      Darrow: "Come on, come on, don't be scared. I won't hurt ya. Come on."
      Goodspeed: "You know how this shit works?"
      Darrow: *Pulling out a combat knife* "You know how this shit works?"
      Darrow: *Stopping directly in front of the missile* "I don't need the gun," *He drops the gun but keeps the knife* "Come on, let's play."
      Goodspeed: "Listen, I think we got started off on the wrong foot. Stan Goodspeed, FBI... uh, let's talk music. Do you like the Elton John song Rocket Man?"
      Darrow: "I don't like soft-ass shit!"
      Goodspeed: "Oh, you don't? oh... well, I only bring it up because... it's you. You're the Rocket Man." *He flips the switch that fires the missile, which smashes into Darrow and throws him out the window*
      Goodspeed: *Smirking out the window* "How do you like how that shit works?"
  • Goodspeed later killing the Big Bad Captain Frye by shoving a chemical ball down his throat. "Eat that, you fuck!"
