  • Air Force One, "Get off my plane!"
  • The 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland (2010):
    Alice: Off with your head!
  • Alien Apocalypse: In this Bruce Campbell flick, Bruce's character Dr. Ivan Hood shoots a traitor with an arrow. As the traitor writhes in pain, he protests, "Ungh... you said you're a doctor. You're supposed to heal people." Ivan replies, "I am. Your stupidity is terminal. And now you're cured." before finishing him off with another arrow.

  • An indirect example can be found at the end of Batman Begins, when Batman leaves Ra's Al Ghul stranded on a train that's about to crash and explode:
    Batman: I won't kill you... but I don't have to save you.
    • There's also one (though the person on the receiving end survives) from Scarecrow when he sets Batman on fire.
      Scarecrow: Oh, having trouble? Take a seat. Have a drink. You look like a man who takes himself too seriously. You want my opinion? You need to lighten up.
    • The Joker gets some in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). First, an Ironic Echo variation as Jack Napier, when he kills Corrupt Cop Eckhart; "Think about the future!", then in his introduction proper as the Joker ("You can call me... Joker. And as you can see, I'm a lot happier."). Later he hangs a lampshade on his one-liner before shooting Bruce Wayne, not knowing that he's, well, Batman:
      "Did you ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight? I say that of all my prey. I just like the sound of it."
    • And the Joker in The Dark Knight.
      Joker: I'm gonna make this pencil disappear. (Slams goon's head onto table with pencil piercing his head.)
  • Batman Returns: Shreck tries to do this, but doesn't succeed at killing Batman or Catwoman - the latter even scores a successful one-liner on him. Brownie points for poise, though.
    Shreck: ...Bruce Wayne? Why are you dressed up like Batman?
    Catwoman: Because he is Batman, you moron.
    * Points gun at armor-damaged Batman*
    Shreck: Was. *Bang*
    Later
    Catwoman: You killed me. The Penguin killed me. Batman killed me. That's three lives down! You got enough in there to finish me off?!
    Shreck: One way to find out. *Cue Barrage*
    Catwoman: [after taking four bullets] Two lives left. I think I'll save one for next Christmas. But in the meantime, how about a kiss, Santy Claus? *puts nearby electric cable between their mouths*
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Batman to Anatoli Knyazev, before shooting the villain's flamethrower, causing it to explode, in a Shout-Out to The Dark Knight Returns (where the line's used as a Bond One-Liner instead).
    Knyazev: I'll kill her! Believe me, I'll do it!
    Batman: I believe you.
  • Battle: Los Angeles: Martinez's last bit of dialogue before his Heroic Sacrifice:
    Martinez: This is Second Lieutenant William Martinez, Echo Company, 2nd Battalion 5th Marines. Ooh-Ra!
  • Battleship: Cora gets one in as an alien footsoldier standing on the deck of a ship finds himself standing directly in the line of fire of one of the turreted guns.
    Mahalo, mother-*BOOM*
    • A veteran manages to one-up her later.
      Let's drop some lead on these mother-FIRE!
  • The Beast of War (1988). The Soviet tank crew leave Koverchenko tied to a rock for the Afghan rebels after he threatens to report them. As one of them places a grenade with the pin out under Koverchenko's head he says: "If you want anything, just nod."
  • In Big Game, Moore finally gets his President Action on.
    Moore: You gotta cock it, motherfucker. [pumps an entire magazine into Hazar]
  • This one from the end of Blade: "Some motherfuckers are always tryin' to iceskate uphill."
    • Or the line from Blade II "You obviously do not know who you are fucking with!"
  • In Bound (1996), when Violet has a gun aimed at her abusive ex.
    "Put the gun down, Violet. I know you. You won't shoot me."
    "Caesar, you don't know shit."

    C 
  • The Casper film:
    Dibs: I've got the power! I've got the treasure!
    Carrigan: And you have a flight to catch!
    Dibs: Huh?
    [Carrigan flings Dibs out the window]
  • Andy has one near the end of the first Child's Play:
    Chucky: Andy, no! We're friends to the end, remember?
    Andy: This IS the end, friend!
  • Cloud Atlas: "And don't call me a stupid wetback!"
  • Commando has several:
    • The first one is before Cooke kills a trash man.
      Trash man: I'm afraid you'd miss me.
      Cooke: Don't worry, we won't.
    • The second one is before Cooke runs over Forrestal.
      Cooke: You know what I like best?
      Forestal: What's that?
      Cooke: The price.
    • The third one is when Matrix refuses to cooperate with Diaz to reclaim his daughter.
      Diaz: My people got some business with you, and if you want your kid back, then you gotta cooperate. Right?
      Matrix: WRONG!
    • The fourth one is when Matrix breaks his promise of killing Sully last.
      Matrix: Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last?
      Sully: That's right, Matrix, you did!
      Matrix: I Lied.
    • The fifth is when Matrix kills Arius' henchmen to save his daughter locked inside the mansion with a "¿Cómo estás?" before tranquilizing one of them with a pitch fork.
  • Con Air has "You're not getting near my daughter. Buckle up!" and "Cy..." "...onara!"
  • In The Condemned:
    Jack: Sounds like you've had a hard life.
    Ewan: Yeah.
    Jack: Good thing it's over.
  • The Crow: "Victims...aren't we all?"
    • "Is that gasoline I smell?"
      • Subverted. Gideon survives.
    • T-Bird gives one to himself that is rather fitting, as it was from Shelly's book that he took on the night he and his colleagues murdered her: "Abashed the devil stood, and felt how awful goodness was."

    D 
  • Paul Kersey of the Death Wish series had some good ones.
    • From Death Wish II:
      Paul Kersey: [notices that the punk has a cross] Do you believe in Jesus?
      Punk: Yes, I do.
      Paul Kersey: Well, you're gonna meet him.
    • From Death Wish 4: The Crackdown:
      Rapist: Who the fuck are you?!
      Paul Kersey: Death.
    • From Death Wish V: The Face of Death:
      Tommy O'Shea: Listen...whatever you want...whatever you need...
      Paul Kersey: I don't need anything. But you...need a bath.
      [shoves Tommy into a pool full of acid]
  • The Devil's Advocate has versions of this, notably several pages worth by John Milton as his demons pursue Eddie Barzoon (although the speech is not for the benefit of Barzoon). Also, Kevin Lomax's simple statement of "Free will", before launching his kamikaze ploy.
  • The Die Hard series:
  • Dirty Harry has his famous speech, which is actually an offer for his enemy to surrender. The second time he gives it, at the end of the film, is very much in keeping with this trope, as Harry Callahan is in no mood to let Scorpio live after all he's done:
    Harry: I know what you're thinking, punk. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, I've forgotten myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?!
    • Sudden Impact: The words so badass the President used them:
      "Go ahead. Make my day."
      • From the same film, there's also this.
      Harry: Well, we're not just gonna let you walk out of here.
      Crook (chuckling): Who's "we", sucka?
      Harry: (slowly drawing his gun) Smith & Wesson... and me.
    • The Dead Pool has Harry use this on the Big Bad:
    "You're out of bullets. And you know what that means. You're shit outta luck."
  • In Dredd: "You have been judged. The sentence is death."
    • This gem from the opening.
      Judge Dredd: [aims his Lawgiver] Negotiation's over.
      Zwirner: Hey, what are you doing? Didn't you hear what I said? I'll kill the bitch!
      Judge Dredd: Yeah, I heard you, hotshot.
      Zwirner: What?
      Judge Dredd: I said, "Hotshot".
      [Dredd's Lawgiver sets to Hotshot and he fires at Swirner.]
    • In Judge Dredd before Judge Dredd throws Rico off the Statue of Liberty to his death.
      Judge Dredd: Court's adjourned.

  • "Harry Potter… the boy who lived...come to die."
    • Subverted Trope: Harry had to get a taste of death in order to remove the piece of Voldemort's soul stuck in him. Relieved of that piece, he's able to come back and finally finish business.
    • Also, earlier: "You've been a good and faithful servant, Severus, but only I can live forever."
    • Lest we forget: Molly Weasley's "Not my daughter, you bitch!" before she disintegrates Bellatrix Lestrange.

  • Hollow Man: "Go to Hell" (just as she drops him into an... inferno)
  • Subverted in Home Alone 2, in which Harry puts a gun at Kevin's head and is about to pull the trigger and do him in once and for all (just before the pigeon lady saves Kevin by distracting the crooks by dousing them with birdseed and letting the pigeons do the rest):
    Harry: I never made it to the sixth grade, kid. And it doesn't look like you're gonna, either.
    • Considering the gun was covered in varnish, he wouldn't have been successful in shooting him anyway, as proven when he tries to shoot the pigeon lady.
  • Hot Fuzz: "It's not your village anymore!"

    I 
  • The Dolph Lundgren movie, I Come in Peace (aka Dark Angel) was an entire movie built around the somewhat obvious Pre-Mortem One-Liner.
    • For those who don't know, the quote goes as such:
      Evil Alien Bastard: I come in peace.
      Dolph Lundgren: And you go in pieces, asshole.
  • Inception: "Paradox."
  • In Independence Day, Russell Casse flies up to one of the alien ships and screams: "In the words of my generation: UP YOURS!" then collides with the aliens' death weapon and destroys the entire ship
    Russell: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA HELLO, BOYS! I'M BAAAAAAAAAACK!
    • In the sequel, Whitmore manages to deliver a worthy follow-up as he's about to blow up four cold fusion bombs right in the face of the Alien Queen.
      Whitmore: On behalf of the people of Earth, happy Fourth of July.
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: "Mola Ram, prepare to meet Kali — in hell!" Though Mola Ram doesn't die right away (unlike his mooks), it does serve as a one liner in the Arcade Game.
  • Innerspace:
    Tuck Pendleton: OK pal... here's how I spell relief! [releases his ship, sending the craft into the acid in Jack's stomach; Tuck's safe, but Mr. Igoe - who's hanging onto the ship trying to kill Tuck - isn't, and is quickly reduced to a skeleton] Jack, you just digested a bad guy.
    Jack Putter: [belches]
  • In I, Robot Detective Spooner's last exchange to V.I.K.I. is like this:
    V.I.K.I.: You are making a mistake. My logic is undeniable.
    Detective Spooner: You have so got to die. He then injects nanites into V.I.K.I, killing her.

    J 
  • Even James Bond did this instead of his traditional post-death quips, Pierce Brosnan in particular:
    • In the very first movie, Dr. No, Bond tells Professor Dent: "That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your sixth."
    • In Moonraker before airlocking Drax, Bond says "Take a giant step for mankind."
    • In GoldenEye when Trevelyan asks: "For England, James?", Bond replies: "No, for me".
    • In Tomorrow Never Dies Bond tells Elliot Carver: "You forgot the first rule of mass media, Elliot! GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!".
    • In The World is Not Enough Bond tells Renard (given some time earlier he revealed that he killed his partner/lover, Elektra): "She is waiting for you!"
    • Gustav Graves from Die Another Day tells Bond: "Time to face destiny." After he is sucked by the opened door of the airplane and is hanging from it, Bond replies: "Time to face gravity."
    • In Diamonds Are Forever, the Ambiguously Gay (though confirmed in the book, only hinted at in the movie) hitmen Mister Wint and Mister Kidd come up with a few during their repeated attempts to kill James Bond.
      • The first time, when they try to burn him alive:
        Albert Wint: Very... moving.
        Charles Kidd: Heartwarming, Mr. Wint.
        [Wint and Kidd begin to leave Slumber, Inc. as the casket in which they had sealed James Bond inches closer to the retort]
        Albert Wint: A glowing tribute, Mr. Kidd.
      • Coming across Bond a second time, after he had been gassed inside of an elevator:
        Albert Wint: If at first you don't succeed, Mr. Kidd...
        Charles Kidd: Try, try again, Mr. Wint.
        [they remove his unconscious corpus from the elevator and load him into a trunk before taking off to leave him for dead in an unfinished pipeline]
      • For their third and final attempt, there is of course the unforgettable Bombe Surprise.
      • They also get one on Shady Tree, who they off more successfully.
        Shady Tree: Critics and material I don't need, I haven't changed my act in 40 years!
        Charles Kidd: [shows Tree a water gun flower] Ah, but this one's surefire.
        Shady Tree: That's the oldest Godda
        Albert Wint: And this one... will kill you. [fires a "Bang!" Flag Gun at Tree]
        Shady Tree: [oblivious to their true intentions] Come on fellas, the popping gun and the Squirting Flower routine? You gotta be kidding me...
        [BANG! Mr. Wint fires a real bullet into Tree's brain, cutting him down almost instantly. Mr. Kidd proceeds to clean up the mess with the flower]
    • In Licence to Kill, after seeing that Krest's goons had killed Sharkey, Bond flips, grabs a spear gun and shouts "Compliments of Sharkey!" before spearing one of said goons, destroying their drug stash and stealing a plane carrying several million dollars intended for Franz Sanchez.
    • Previously, as Bond holds a Briefcase Full of Money:
      Killifer: There's $2 million in that suitcase. I'll split it with you.
      Bond: You earned it. You keep it, Old Buddy! [Throws the case at him, knocking Killifer into shark-infested water]
      • Sanchez himself has one after two of the tanker trucks are destroyed.
      Truman-Lodge: BRILLIANT! Well done, Franz! Another eighty-million dollar *write-off*!
      Sanchez: Then I guess it's time to start cutting overhead.
      • Sanchez attempts one only to get dispensed by another.
      Sanchez: You could have had everything.
      Bond: Don't you wanna know why? (shows the lighter given by Felix, uses it to set Sanchez on fire)
    • In The Man with the Golden Gun, when Hai Fat says that Bond's presence in Bangkok has become a problem, Scaramanga, right before killing Hai Fat with the Golden Gun, replies "That's no problem."
    • This gem from Live and Let Die, when an agent is watching a jazz funeral:
      Agent: Whose funeral is it?
      Assassin: Yours! (stabs agent)
    • Dryden attempts one in Casino Royale (2006), but Bond got to his hidden gun first.
      Dryden: Shame. We'd barely got to know each other. (click) (cue Oh, Crap! face)
    • In Quantum of Solace, Bond gets one on Colonel Cuervo who betrayed and killed Bond's friend, René Mathis.
  • Jaws: "Smile, you son of a-" *BANG*

  • The Outlaw Josey Wales involves a short conversation containing one between Eastwood's titular character and a bounty hunter.
    Bounty Hunter: You're wanted, Wales.
    Josey Wales: Reckon I'm right popular. You a bounty hunter?
    Bounty Hunter: A man's got to do something for a living these days.
    Josey Wales: Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy.

    P 
  • P2: "Merry Christmas, Thomas."
  • Pan's Labyrinth : "No. He won't even know your name."
    • May not sound like much, but it is probably the cruelest thing that you could possibly say to the man, considering his obsession with passing on his family legacy.
  • The Patriot: "My sons were better men." (stabs bad guy in the throat with bayonet)
  • Paul: A comedic variant. One of the guys in pursuit of the titular alien, a God-botherer of the first degree, yells out to another pursuer that he's on a mission from God. Said Agent gives us this gem: "Tell him you failed!" Boom, Headshot!. Either to mess with the audience, or because some form of Laser-Guided Karma is involved, the shooter goes over a cliff shortly afterwards, while the shootee survives because his bible stopped the bullet.
  • Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride has one planned out (to the point where it becomes something of a Verbal Business Card) for when he meets the man who murdered his dad: "Hello! My Name Is Inigo Montoya. You Killed My Father. Prepare to Die." When he does meet that man, the phrase becomes a Survival Mantra during Inigo's Heroic Second Wind. The duel ultimately concludes with this exchange:
    Inigo Montoya: Offer me money.
    Count Rugen: Yes.
    Inigo Montoya: Power too. Promise me that.
    Count Rugen: All that I have and more. Please...
    Inigo Montoya: Offer me anything I ask for.
    Count Rugen: Anything you want.
    Inigo Montoya: [stabs Count Rugen] I want my father back, you son of a bitch.
    • The novel has a bit more to it after this:
      Inigo Montoya: That was just to the left of your heart. [strikes again] That was below your heart. Can you guess what I'm doing?
      The Six-Fingered Man: Cutting my heart out.
      Inigo Montoya: You took mine when I was ten; I want yours now. We are lovers of justice, you and I— what could be more just than that?
  • The Professional: "This... is from... Mathilda."
  • Pulp Fiction: Ezekiel 25:17 (sorta).

    R 
  • RoboCop (1987): RoboCop accuses the Big Bad, but explains to the Old Man that he can't act against an OCP officer. They both get one when the Old Man spots the loophole:
    The Old Man: Dick, you're fired!
    RoboCop: Thank you.
    • Near the beginning, Clarence Boddicker gets one just as he's about to kill Alex Murphy (after he had tortured him first):
      Okay, fun's over.
  • In The Rock, right before firing a missile at an enemy, Nicolas Cage asks him about the Elton John song "Rocket Man" and then goes "Well, I only bring it up because, uh, it's you. You're the Rocket Man."
    • He also does one while "force-feeding" Deadly Gas to a mook: "Eat that, you fuck!"
  • The Rookie gives us another Clint Eastwood example:
    "There must be a hundred reasons why I shouldn't blow you away. Right now I can't think of one."

    S 
  • The 1984 vigilante film Savage Streets has a fairly awesome one from Linda Blair's tough-girl character Brenda, who has gone vigilante on a street gang who has raped one of her friends and murdered another. The recipient of this line has just threatened to rape her and then cut her into little pieces:
    Brenda: Sounds nice and kinky to me. Too bad you're not double-jointed.
    Fargo: Why?
    Brenda: 'Cause if you were, you'd be able to bend over and kiss your ass goodbye! [launches a crossbow bolt into Fargo's neck]
  • Saw: "Game over."
  • Scarface (1983): "Say hello to my little friend!"
  • Hmm, while we're at it, here are a few more Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy gems:
    • "SCREW YOU!!" Literally doing this to a villain with a power drill in the original Total Recall (1990).
    • Knock Knock!! After bursting through a door into a room full of soon-to-be-dead soldiers in Predator.
    • The Running Man: "Give you a lift?" before throwing a guard off a ledge, "How about a light?" before incinerating Fireball, and this exchange:
      Buzzsaw: I love this saw. It's a part of me. Now I'm gonna make it part of you.
      Richards: That's okay. Keep it.
      • Also the final exchange between Richards and Killian.
        Killian: You bastard! Drop dead!
        Richards: I don't do requests.
    • Last Action Hero:
      • A non-lethal example: "Wanna be a farmer? Here's a couple of acres!"
      • Lampshaded once he gets to the real world. "You've seen those movies where they say 'Make my day' or 'I'm your worst nightmare'? Well, listen to this one. Rubber baby buggy bumpers!"
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: "You once were a ve-gone, but now you will begone."
    • Earlier in the same fight Scott was one the receiving end of an (unsuccessful) pre-mortem one liner: "This pilgrim's journey has reached its end."
    • Later on, we get: "You are blowing up.....RIGHT NOW!"
  • In Scream (1996):
    Ghostface: [just for shooting a reporter] This is Gale Weathers, signing out. It doesn't work in the end.
    Ghostface: [just about to stab the main character] Say hello to your mother for me. [Doesn't work.
    Sidney: (after one Ghostface says "I always had a thing for you Sid! Bitch!"]'' In your dreams!
  • Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 has the infamous "GARBAGE DAY!"
  • Skyline: "Vaya con dios, you son of a bitch!"
  • Snatch.:
    Brick Top: Pete, talk to me!
    Pikey: If you want your friend to hear you, you'll have to talk a lot louder than that. [Boom, Headshot!]
  • "Give my regard to King Tut, asshole." — Colonel O'Neil(l) of Stargate the movie, just before pushing the button to induce a Portal Cut against Anubis (Ra's first warrior).
  • Star Trek III: The Search for Spock: I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU!
  • Star Trek: First Contact:
  • Star Trek (2009):
    Kirk: I got your gun.
    • Also, when the Big Bad's ship is being pulled into a black hole and he rants that he'd rather die than accept Kirk's help:
      Kirk: You got it. (Kirk then opens up with all the Enterprise's weapons to make sure Nero can't escape.)
  • In Star Trek Into Darkness, Khan to Admiral Marcus: "You should have let me sleep!"
  • Star Wars:
    Phasma: You were always scum.

  • In Suicide Squad, El Diablo says to Incubus right before both are blown by a bomb “Ya te chingaste, wey!” The subtitles go "Now you're screwed", but actually closer to "You're already fucked, dude".
  • Two in the B-Movie The Sweeper, one by Mark when he's about to give Benny a presudo Disney Villain Death with a rope:
    Mark: What's the matter, tough guy? Are you afraid of heights? What did they call that, vertigo?
    And another before executing some gangsters playing cards, by a Justice Inc. member...
    JI Member: Game over.

  • Taken : "It was just business, Nothing Personal!" "It was all personal to me." *BANG*
    • "I believe you... but it's not enough to save you."
  • Tank Girl. Both Tank Girl and Jet Girl.
    • After dropping a bucket of water on Kesslee's head and shorting him out:
      Tank Girl: Have I hurt you yet?
    • As Jet Girl points a gun at her sexual harasser Sergeant Small:
      Sergeant Small: Fuck Me!
      Jet Girl: How many times do I have to tell you? I don't want to! [shoots him]
  • The Terminator series.
    • The Terminator has several instances:
      • First when The Terminator demands clothes from a gang of punks during its first arrival in 1984.
        Punk leader: Hey, I think this guy's a couple of cans short of a six-pack.
        T-800: Your clothes. Give them to me, now.
      • The second is after the Terminator bought guns but instead opts to shoot the clerk with the automatic shotgun.
        Gun shop clerk: You can't do that.
        T-800: Wrong.
      • Third when the T-800 shoots a random woman named "Sarah Connor" to which it simply calls her name ("Sarah Connor?") and shoots her with a pistol.
      • Fourth is where the T-800 goes to see the real Sarah Connor at a police station with Sergeant Wright on the desk.
        Wright: Look, it may take a while. If you wanna wait, there's a bench over there.
        T-800 [examining the police station's surroundings]: "I'll be back." [rams a car into the station]
      • The last one is when Sarah Connor finally destroys the T-800 for good with "You're terminated, fucker."
    • Terminator 2: Judgment Day: "Hasta la vista, baby." (though the T-1000 doesn't die right after the line)
    • Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines: "You are terminated."
    • Terminator Genisys: "You're nothing but a relic from a deleted timeline." (again, the T-800 also doesn't die right away)
  • The Thing (1982). You can't really give him points for eloquence, but MacReady's One-Liner before blowing up the title monster is memorable enough:
    MacReady: "Yeah, fuck you too!"
  • Transformers has the quite literal "You want a piece of me, Megatron?! You want a piece?!" "NO! I want TWO!"
  • Kevin Bacon's parting quip to the last Graboid in Tremors: "Can you fly, you sucker?!"
  • True Lies: "You're fired", just as Arnie fires a missile on his Marine Harrier fighter, from which a terrorist who attempted to blow up Miami is hanging, sending it through a building and into a terrorist helicopter. After a prolonged fight on the Harrier.

    U 
  • While on the subject of Gene Hackman and Clint Eastwood, Unforgiven averts the trope when Eastwood delivers the Coup de Grâce to Hackman's character:
    Little Bill: I'll See You in Hell, William Munny.
    Munny: Yeah. (Shoots Little Bill in the face)
    • A bit anticlimactic, but blowing someone's head off is a fairly snappy retort all its own.
      • The preceding exchange should also qualify.
        Little Bill: I don't deserve this. To die like this. I was building a house...
        Munny: Deserve's got nothing to do with it.
  • The Untouchables:
    Frank Nitti: I said your friend died screaming like a stuck Irish pig. Now you think about that when I beat the rap.
    Eliot Ness: [pushing Nitti off the roof] Did he sound anything like that?

  • Wild Wild West. Jim West before killing a guy with knives in place of hands.
    Jim West: No more Mr. Knife Guy.
  • In Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Eddie Valiant manages to take down all the Weasels in one way or another, but only Smartass gets dispatched with one of these (and during an impromptu song-and-dance routine)
    Eddie: ♫ I'm sick of taking falls ♫
    ♫ And bouncin' off the walls ♫
    ♫ Without that gun ♫
    ♫ I'd have some fun ♫
    ♫ I'd kick you in the—(gets a vase dropped on him)
    Roger: NOSE!
    Smartass: "Nose"? That don't rhyme with "walls"!
    Eddie: (gets back up) No...but this does! (punts Smartass right in the dick, launching him across the warehouse and into a vat of Dip, killing him instantly)
