  • One of the limo guys catches Ray Bones beating the crap out of Harry in Harry's office. The limo guy threatens to shoot Ray with the gun he's got tucked into his pants. Ray, holding his own gun, asks the limo guy if he's one of those "quick-draw artists". Just as the limo guy realizes what that means, and tries to bluff his way out of it by estimating that Ray's gun will jam up on him, Ray shoots him dead with a big grin on his face.
    • And then Ray puts his gun in Harry's hand, telling the barely-conscious producer to shoot the dead limo guy some more so Ray can stage the scene as "self-defense" with Harry as fall guy. Harry weakly tries to aim the gun right into Ray's crotch. Ray calmly and gently lowers Harry's arm and says softly "Come on Harry, knock it off, we don't have a lot of time here".
  • Bear tricking Bo into being shoved over his own balcony - the same one that he'd told Bear to rig so that it would give "just like in the movies" to kill Chili.

How well does it match the trope?
