->''"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.

Not to be confused with WeAreNotGoingThroughThatAgain, where a character refuses a new quest, not just a particular feat.

-->'''Haddock:''' What?! Us go back there? To the moon? Me, go back to the moon?! May I be turned into a bollard, blistering barnacles, if I so much as set foot in your flying coffin again! Never, d'you hear? You interplanetary goat, you! Never!!


[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* In ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'', Trixie says this after [[spoiler:destroying Masquerade's [[PoweredArmor Puppeteer armor]] with a DeathOrGloryAttack that drained her mana engine so severely that she can barely stand and momentarily forgets she [[AnArmAndALeg only has three legs at the moment.]]]]

* Bobby in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' after being phased though the ground and back out again.

[[folder: Literature ]]

* Gets used several times in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', usually by [[DeadpanSnarker Marco]].
-->'''Marco:''' That was cool.
-->'''Tobias:''' ''Way'' cool.
-->'''Marco:''' Let's never, ''ever'', do that again.
-->'''Tobias:''' Never. Ever.
-->'''Ax:''' Repetition of that activity would be a very bad idea.
** In that particular case, morphing cockroaches and [[BanisterSlide sliding down a spiral handrail for several flights of stairs]], a ride a skateboarder would have traded both kidneys for.
** Ax also used this StockPhrase ("I will not do this again") in a more dramatic ShootTheDog context, when the plan involved him capturing Chapman and interrogating him in the ToThePain style for hours on end.
** When the kids morph ants--the ant morph has some ''very'' disturbing side effects. Turns out, the termite morph has very similar effects. That's another one nobody's ever doing again.
** Cassie says this when she leaves the Animorphs for a brief period, referring to a particularly grisly battle.

* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner:
** Strong Bad says this in the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "the chair" 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. Naturally, he does this while sitting in a high-backed chair, so the audience only sees a tiny, tiny sliver and hears the screaming.
** Done by Strong Sad in the email "radio", during Strong Bad's ImagineSpot to demonstrate how [[VocalDissonance radio announcers never sound how they look]]. Strong Bad temporarily turns the voice of timid and extremely soft-spoken Strong Sad into that of [[LargeHamRadio a obnoxiously loud and energetic morning radio host]]. Strong Sad pleads with Strong Bad "Don't you ever make me do that again!"

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* In a "Frogger" episode on ''WesternAnimation/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 satisfied 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 WesternAnimation/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."
* In the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Cheeseburger Backpack", after Steven inspires Amethyst to swing across a gravity vortex while holding the other two Crystal Gems, Pearl snaps at the two of them "Don't ever do that again!"
