Quotes: No One Could Survive That
Red Mage: The point is that we defeated him. He's gone. He shall never trouble us. Ever again.
[Cut to Hell]
Lich: Time is a window. Death, a doorway. I'll be back.

Thief: Did the plan work?
Red Mage: No one could have survived that, Thief.
Black Mage: Point of order: us.
Red Mage: We're statistical outliers on the survivability curve.
Black Mage: It's four for four! That's 100%! How is that an outlier?
8-Bit Theater, again.

Gunn-Sar: What's the tally of challenges?
Cato: Twenty-five dead and one missing, sir.
Gunn-Sar: Oh, come on, Cato. Don't quibble. Marquin fell backwards off the cliff.
Cato: Yes, sir.
Gunn-Sar: So he's dead. Like, you can't say someone's missing as such. Not when they've taken a dive into a bottomless gorge.
Cato: No sir.
Gunn-Sar: So, it's twenty-six dead.
Cato: The council ruled it was twenty-five, sir, and one missing.
Gunn-Sar: [unperturbed] Twenty-five men lie dead who tried to stand against me. And one, if he's not still falling, is no more than a greasy spot on the rocks, right?
Blake's 7, "Power"

Tonk Fah: You think he'll live?
Denth: He just fell out the third-story window, plummeting toward certain doom. Of course he'll live!

Naraku: Oops, killed your girlfriend again Inuyasha.
Inuyasha: Bullshit, do you know how many cliffs Kikyo has fallen off? She'll be fine. Hell I threw her off one last week.
Inuyasha: Episode Infinity

Mook 1: There's no way he could have survived that fall.
Seto Kaiba: Actually, I seem to be okay.
Mook 2: Nope, he's definitely dead.
Seto Kaiba: You guys are idiots.
Mook 1: At least we're not dead, like you.

Batman: Nothing could have survived that. Not even Darkseid.
Superman: You know something, Bruce? You're not always right.
Justice League, "Twilight"

J'onn: In many ways, Lex Luthor represents the worst mankind has to offer.
Superman: But he died saving us all.
Batman: I doubt either of them died.
Superman: We saw it this time...
Flash: You saw it last time, too.
Green Lantern: What's the old saying? Believe half of what you see -
Hawkgirl: And none of what you hear. They'll be back.
Justice League, "Destroyer"

Cooler: So. Who thinks he's dead?
Sauza: Dead.
Neiz: Krii!
Doore: That boy is dead as mud.
Sauza: Qu'est-ce que fuck.
Dragon Ball Z Abridged, "Revenge of Cooler"

"Supervillains never die in bottomless pits. It's like an unwritten law or something."

"She's not gonna make it! [Azula manages to stop her fall] ...of course she did."

"I buried you alive and I put a rock on what was going to be your could you get out of that?"
