Explosions fix everything!
He did 'Boom!'. No matter how many times you hear, it's always a good sound.
Let's see: sixty seconds on the clock plus one 300kg bomb equals lots
of little pieces of submarine.
"If it's bombs they want... I'm happy to oblige."
My years with Mr. Tesla have taught me that there's one underlying scientific principle common to all existence. Everything

Why do things always explode?
You see, I'm a guy of simple taste. I enjoy, uh, dynamite, and gunpowder, and gasoline.
Dude, you have a bazooka. Stop thinking Prague Police and start thinking Playstation. Blow shit up!
Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Fan in Crowd
: Blow something up! Tony Stark
: What? Blow something up? I already did that.
The Alchemist's Guild is opposite the Gambler's Guild. Usually. Sometimes it's above it, or below it, or falling in bits around it.
Ch3C6H2(NO2)3 + Hg(CNO)2 = well, what? An enormous hole in the ground, a pile of masonry, some bits of flesh and mucus, a foot, with the boot still on it, flying through the air and landing, flop, in the middle of the geraniums—the scarlet ones; such a splendid show that summer!
"Their songs followed the simple premise of boy being meets girl being under the silvery moon, which then explodes for no adequately explored reason."
I don't have
to blow up everything I see. I just like to.
Pretty. What do we blow up first? Wedge:
Write that down. That ought to be Wraith Squadron's official motto.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is— BOOM!
—And I'm from the Department of— BOOM!
What's cooler than saying 'fuck'? Blowing something up!
— Claire Hooper, The Sideshow With Paul McDermott
I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
I was gonna send for another [sonic blaster] but somebody
blew up the factory! Rose Tyler:
Oh, I know. First day I met 'im, he blew my job up, it's practically how he communicates.
I guess when they say you can't fight City Hall, they really mean it. Derek:
Well, whoever said that didn't have as much plastique as we do.
"Sometimes, when I morph, I can't help but notice this gigantic explosion right behind me for no apparent reason."
"I assume you're referring to the residual energy runoff that is sometimes necessary to clear the suit's bio-field channels during the morph."
"I'm referring to the six-story-tall fireballs - like that one, right there! Now, could that happen to me in the kitchen or something?"
: C3H5N3O9, the highly explosive force used to create dynamite. (drops chemical formula which then explodes)
In the first Predator
, doesn't his respiratory-whatever-device he has...It gets fucked up, so he has to take it off? It's like a big, awesome reveal. Rich:
Well, everything's quicker in this one, 'cause they gotta get to the point. Jay:
the point? Rich: BOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
I get a big charge
out of being here. Crazy Harry
[entering with a dynamite plunger
]: Did you say a big charge?
I'M TORGUE, AND I AM HERE TO ASK YOU ONE QUESTION, AND ONE QUESTION ONLY: EXPLOSIONS!?
TORGUE GUNS MAKE THINGS EXPLODE! ....END OF SALES PITCH!
DID YOU KNOW THAT 97% OF CREATURES ON PANDORA AREN'T EXPLODING RIGHT NOW?! THAT'S BULLSH*T! BUY A GODDAMN TORGUE GUN!
Don't worry! On Pandora, it's super-weird if something's not
A nice explosion now and then keeps the mind sharp.
Goddess of Explosions:
Anyway, what is your wish? Princess Pitch:
More explosions. Goddess of Explosions:
Your wish is granted!!!
It's time to BLOW $#!% UP!!!
If at first you don't succeed, blow it up again!
Every real man knows the 1 golden rule of macho movie making: if you see a truck on screen, blow it up. In Thelma & Louise
, the women saw a truck. What did they do? Susan Sarandon pulled out her gun and blew the truck way the fuck up. Another sign of the times. Arnold's [[Terminator
tromping around praying for the earth to save itself and Ms. Davis and Ms. Sarandon are drinking and shooting and screwing their way all over the macho west. Citizen Kane
? A masterpiece. But every real man knows it would have been better if a huge Mack truck with the word ROSEBUD emblazoned on the trailer drove through the front gate of the mansion and then KAA-POWWWWW!
Caboose: Andy, calm down. Think of a happy place. Now, what makes you happy? Andy:
(sentient bomb) Being in the middle of a huge explosion! Church: Less happy place, Caboose!
Wood, mortar, plaster... various materials mundane materials that share one important quality. They all can be blown up. Torg:
Riff, that's always
your plan. Riff:
It's more of a philosophy.
The latter half of the 19th century was filled with advances in man-exploding technology—particularly those advances that allowed you to blow up people who were not you, but that had angered you in some way and so deserved to die. Progress!
As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.
I got to draw superfluous explosions, though! Those are my favorite kind!
And most importantly... we must BLOW STUFF UP! Wolf, Thatch and Kiki:
Um... blow... evil... stuff... up...
Are we done now? Fatman:
Yeah. Just wanted to leave my calling card. Raven:
What's that? [the prison base behind them explodes in the distance] Fatman:
A pile of smoking rubble.
: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE KIND OF EXPLOSION? Mr. Torgue
: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO BLOW SHIT UP, MR. TORGUE? Mr. Torgue
: THAT QUESTION IMPLIES I HAVE A LEAST FAVORITE WAY TO BLOW THINGS UP WHICH IS F*CKING QUITTER TALK
In the Game Boy game where Mega Man uses it, I think Mirror Buster is just a shield that can bounce shots, but instead I made it this thing that absorbs attacks and fires them back as some kind of converted blast. Why? Because explosions.
So anyway, boxes labeled TOP SECRET are stolen, helicopters are flown, buses flip over, and crap blows up. And when I say crap blows up, I aint talking a car or two. I mean like half the movie is either fiery explosions, or stock footage
of buildings imploding, all thanks to the miracle of stock footage...Anyhoo, the crux of the plot is this: Chyna
is going to build a mega-gravatron dealymabob.
Now Im just going to go out on a limb here as to what a mega-gravatron actually does: it will blow crap up.
She likes to do that.
First the lights all around the prison get blown out by some mysterious force!
... Its only then that we get the real action, when a bunch of the golden rings from Sonic the Hedgehog
blow up a fence. Obviously, this is what magnetism looks like. And also, 'magnetism' is the natural force that just straight up makes things explode. Im too lazy to look it up, but Im starting to think 'Jim Carlson' and 'Terrence McDonnell' might be pen names for Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.
—Chris Sims on X-Men
, "Enter Magneto"
In Lord of War
, he plays an arms dealer, a job that according to the poster consists of literally selling explosions to people.
So when Shaw blew up the keg of powder on the bar it only launched a stuntman
, but when Morgan drops a chandelier on one it takes out the whole block? Does black powder even do
that? And if it does, why would anyone have it on their dinner table? This is rapidly becoming the most retarded crap I've ever seen, and I've watched almost every episode of Walker, Texas Ranger
There are so many plot holes, unstated motivations, and damn confusing sh*t that you think the original plot was simply three words Blow sh*t up
. The writing for the action scenes are like a stoner version
of Can You Top This. Hey, lets have a car jump over five cars and do a somersault through the air!
No way man! Lets have TWO cars do a somersault through the air at the same time and then blow up!
DAY 12: Pearl Harbor
script hits by desktop and my imagination starts rolling. Things blew up at Pearl Harbor. Things blew up real good. I got it in my head to do a 2 ½ hour movie about things blowing up at Pearl Harbor.
— Michael Bay's "Diary", by Greg Muskewitz
Remember the first time you saw an explosion? Remember how cool it was? I mean, how can anyone, male female whatever age, not look at an explosion and say "Holy shit! That's incredible! A giant ball of flaming death! Smoke! Blaze! Incredible!" And, sure enough we said "We want more!" So we got more. Okay, we got 80's action films. We got the Stallones!
We got the Schwarzeneggers!
And then we had the 90's! And we got even more explosions! And then. We. Fucking! Got! MICHAEL! BAY!
And we got too fucking greedy! We got too fucking greedy! You wanna know why? Cause he kept shoving the fucking explosions down our throats!
Until now they doesn't even register. What's an explosion now? You know what an explosion is? An explosion is like a light breeze going across your face. No it's not even that because I would feel the light breeze. No, it's just air! THIS IS AN EXPLOSION NOW! IT DOESN'T REGISTER AT ALL!
"The gods gave us fire, but blowing stuff up? That was our idea."
Why isn't everything exploding?!
It's gonna go boom. It's Atari. It's gonna go boom.
Blue Unicorn: You did it, Charlie! You defeated the Millipede!
I didn't do anything! It just exploded, just like everything else that sings to me!
Explosions, people! In case you missed it!
I am not exaggerating when I say this leads to one explosive climax. Almost everything explodes in this scene. Even the water explodes! He didn't even do anything to that guy other than throw him in, and BOOM! It's like Princess Dragon Mom's headquarters is made out of nitroglycerin or something!
Michael Bay presents: Explosions! Explosions! from Michael Bay! Boom! Michael Baysplosions!!! Mi-ba-bla-ba-splosions!!! Michael-bla-bla-sploom!!! Ma-Ba-sploom!!! Michael *boom* Baysplosions!!!
Dynamite solves everything!
Why does everything explode so easily?
At last, all my powers restored! Speed! Invisibility! Astral projection! And my personal favorite... COMBUSTION!
Let me guess. You're going to flood the cave with water. Doctor Wily:
No, no, no. Nothing so boring. I'm going to flood it with bombs
There are no problems which cannot be solved by judicious use of high explosives.
— British Commando motto, World War 2
There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.
In the early planning stages almost all my stories end with a big explosion.
