* Galen from the TV Series got one when a human was planning on using gas bombs first to wipe out the apes who'd been oppressing his village, then to wipe out all apes everywhere. The human had said, "As long as it won't kill my people, nothing else matters." The normally quiet and gentle Galen then picks up a big stick and knocks him out in one blow, saying, "He won't kill my people either.

After recovering from being shot in the throat, the intrepid space captain escapes into the city, where he's subsequently caught in a large net, in town square.

Added DiffLines:

**The ending certainly has to count as one, as it's perhaps the most famous DownerEnding for a Hollywood blockbuster. And Heston plays it for all its worth: "Oh my God... we finally, really did it. You maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
