  • "Desert Eagle. Point five oh."
    Tony: So. You're obviously the big dick. And the men on either side of you are your balls. There are two types of balls. There are big brave balls and there are little mincy faggot balls.
    Vinny: These are your last words so make them a prayer.
    Tony: Now dicks have drive and clarity of vision, but they're not clever. They smell pussy and they want a piece of the action. And you thought you smelled some good ole pussy and have brought your two little mincy faggot balls along for a good ole time. But you've got your parties muddled up. There's no pussy here. Just a dose that'll make you wish you were born a woman. Like a prick, you're having second thoughts. You're shrinking. And your two little balls are shrinking with you. And the fact that you've got 'Replica' written down the side of your guns...[they look in horror at their guns] and the fact that I've got Desert Eagle, point-five-oh written on the side of mine [They look at his with even more horror] should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now... [he picks up his drink] ...Fuck off.

  • Also, "Pikey reaction". Also, Bullet Tooth Tony realising Avi is in trouble, and bellowing the warning "Avi, pull yer socks up!" before executing the thugs by shooting through a wall and over the ducking Avi. Mickey's entire screen presence is one big CMoA too.
  • Similarly, every time Brick Top opens his mouth, CMoA ensues. "Hence the expression: as greedy as a pig."
  • "You know, fish, chips, cup o' tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins, London!"
  • Tony is a veritable showcase of these. And the "Pikey Reaction".
  • Tommy actually redeems himself with one when he uses his broken gun to ward off Brick Top's thugs before they could dismember Turkish.
    • Later, as the bare knuckle fight gets out of control, the trainers and promoters of both fighters get into the ring themselves. Tommy has to be pulled off of one of the opposing trainers. He certainly did find his minerals.
  • Mickey is four rounds into a bare knuckle boxing match, drunk out of his skull from the fatal-to-anyone-else amount of liquor he'd drank the night before, bleeding and bruised, and gets knocked down. He sees himself from an out of body experience, seeming to be floating in water while looking up at his body being kicked by his oppopent. The music swells. Mickey gets up. The guy he's fighting turns just in time to get an honest to God Megaton Punch straight across the jaw and goes down; Mickey wins.
  • Count 'em. Boris the Blade takes around a dozen rounds from a Desert Eagle .50, after being beaten up, stuffed into the trunk of Tony's car, surviving the wreck of said car, and getting hit by another car. In the meantime, he walked home and retrieved his own BFG, and delivered a Groin Attack to Tommy, without breaking stride. "Hard as the Soviet hammer" indeed.
    Bullet Tooth Tony: Don't take the piss, Boris.
    • Going off that, why was Boris the Blade in that trunk? Rosebud volunteered to beat him up, and he did. Sure, he's heavily injured and demanding a doctor afterward, and he might have had some help, but Rosebud took on a man harder than the Soviet hammer, survived, and got the upper hand.
  • It's a small one, but when Vinny and Sol enter Brick Top's bookies, wearing balaklavas and carrying shotguns, they point a gun into the face of the woman behind the till. She just looks a bit confused, and says only, 'Do you know who this bookies belongs to?'
    • And then she proceeds to stop their robbery. Twice. With their own gun.
