Shut Up Hannibal / Live-Action Films

Go To

Shut Up, Hannibal! in live-action movies.

  • Most of Arnold Schwarzenegger's have this. For example:
    • His character in Commando confronts an unusually confident bad guy sitting in a chair moments after his associates have kidnapped Arnie's daughter. "Moments" being the key word here— Arnie just shoots the guy and chases after the kidnappers in his truck. Oops.
    • Conan the Barbarian:
      • In the end of Conan the Barbarian (1982), villain Thulsa Doom (played by James Earl Jones) proceeds to tell Conan (played by the aforementioned Arnold) that he is the most important person in the barbarian's life, and without all the things he did to Conan (killing his family, selling him into slavery), he would not have turned out as awesome as he is. Conan's rebuttal? He uses what's left of his father's sword to chop Doom's head off.
      Conan: ENOUGH talk! (impales a baddie with a dagger)

    • The 6th Day.
      Mr. Drucker: We can cover this up. Kill Adam Gibson. No one needs to know that you're a clone. That I'm a clone. In a few years, I'll have influenced enough Senators to have the laws changed. And then we won't have to lose our brightest minds to death.
      Adam Gibson's clone: And who decides who lives and who dies? You?
      Mr. Drucker: Do you have a better idea?
      Adam Gibson's clone: How about God?
      Mr. Drucker: Oh, you're one of those. Well, if you believe God made man in his own image, then He gave us the tools to understand genetics, to invent cloning. I'm just picking up where God left off.
      Adam Gibson's clone: If you really believe that, you should clone yourself while you're still alive.
      Mr. Drucker: Why? So I can see things from your unique perspective?
      Adam Gibson's clone: No. So you can go fuck yourself.

    • End of Days (1999):
      • "The Man" (Gabriel Byrne) is giving Jericho Cane (Arnold Schwarzenegger) his temptation speech (he is The Devil after all) and trying to convince him that a satanic apocalypse wouldn't be so bad after all.
        The Man: Just tell me what you want.
        Jericho Cane: I'll tell you what I want. I want you... to go to Hell.
        The Man: Well, you see, the problem is...
        (grabs Cane and lifts him)
        The Man: Sometimes Hell comes to YOU!
      • Later in the film:
        The Man: Now you're making me angry. You don't want to see me angry.
        Jericho Cane: Oh, you think you're bad, huh? You're a fucking choir boy compared to me! A CHOIR BOY!
    • In Terminator Genisys, both T-3000 and Genisys\Skynet have their Evil Gloating stopped by the heroes' violence. A standout is 'Pops' impaling the T-3000 onto a giant screen while saying "John Connor talks too much".

  • The Exorcist III. Kinderman interrupts The Gemini Killer's Break Them by Talking by wordlessly interrupting him with a punch to the face that breaks his nose. The Gemini is unperturbed ("Ooooh, a few boos from the peanut gallery.")
  • 300: After the Persian messenger has delivered his threats, Leonidas bellows "This! Is! SPARTA!" and kicks him down a well. More of a Hot-Blooded challenge of "Bring it on!"; what else would you expect from Spartans?
    • Just before the battle, a Persian messenger is said to come to the Spartans offering a chance to surrender. When Leonidas refuses, the messenger says "Our arrows will block out the sun!" To which Stelios replies "Then we will fight in the shade."
    • Also in the scene where when asked to "lay down your weapons" King Leonidas responds with "Come and get them!" which is allegedly what he laconically said in the historical battle.
  • The Dark Knight:
    • The ending, where the people trapped on two ferries refuse to play along with Prisoner's Dilemma, deciding to not to blow the other ferry up, even with the threat of the Joker blowing them both up at midnight, their decision proving the Joker's Humans Are Bastards viewpoint wrong. Even cooler is that one of the ferries has prisoners on it, and a stereotypical Scary Black Man just says no.
      The Joker: We really should stop this fighting. Otherwise, we'll miss the fireworks!
      Batman: There won't be any fireworks!
      The Joker: [expecting one of the two ferries to explode] And here we... go! [neither ferry explodes and the Joker looks out at them, confused. He turns to a small clock and realizes that it is past midnight]
      Batman: What were you trying to prove? That deep down, everyone's as ugly as you? You're alone.
    • Followed shortly by:
      Joker: You can't rely on anyone these days, you've gotta do everything yourself, DON'T WE! Luckily I came prepared. [whips out a third, long-distance detonator] It's a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, do you know how I got these scars?
      Batman: No. But I know how you got THESE!
      [Batman shoots the Joker with his gauntlet blades]
  • James Bond: Most of the Bond villains often give 007 a Motive Rant, gloat about their Evil Plans, or use Psychological Projection to identify Bond's flaws, only for 007 to make a sarcastic but accurately cutting remark about their insanity, angering them.
    • Dr. No:
      Dr. No: The Americans are fools. I offered my services, they refused. So did the East. Now they can both pay for their mistake.
      Bond: World domination. The same old dream. Our asylums are full of people who think they're Napoleon. Or God.
    • The Man with the Golden Gun: Scaramanga does a Not So Different speech to Bond. Bond replies, "There's a useful four-letter word, and you're full of it."
    • Casino Royale (2006) gives us this exchange as Dryden is lecturing Bond/mocking him for not having made the two kills necessary to be a 00 agent:
      Dryden: How did he die?
      Bond: Your contact? Not well.
      Dryden: Made you feel it, did he? Well, you needn't worry. The second is...
      Bond: [Shoots Dryden] Yes, considerably.
      • At this point, Dryden knows Bond is going to kill him, though. He's tried to kill Bond and failed, since Bond removed the magazine from his hidden pistol, so this also falls into the category of Famous Last Words.
    • Skyfall has a scene were a government minister was grilling M. When Mallory visibly disgusted when it becomes clear that the actual committee hearing is basically nothing more than a Kangaroo Court.
      Mallory: For the sake of variety, might we actually hear from the witness?
    • Spectre: When Oberhauser/Blofeld rambles about his Evil Plan and how he plans to use it by calling himself and his partner-in-crime C "visionaries", 007 simply tells that they're not visionaries, but insane lunatics.
      Bond: Visionaries? Psychiatric wards are full of them.
  • I, Robot
    • There's an awesome example near the end.
      V.I.K.I.: You are making a mistake. My logic is undeniable.
      Del Spooner: You have so got to die.
    • And there's a slightly friendlier example earlier in the movie given to Del Spooner;
      Del Spooner: You are a clever imitation of life... can a robot write a symphony? Can a robot take a blank canvas and turn it into a masterpiece?
      Sonny: Can you?
  • Serenity:
    • During the climax:
      The Operative: Do you know what your sin is, Mal?
      Mal: Aw, hell, I'm a fan of all seven. (headbutt) But right now, I'm gonna have to go with wrath.
    • Also:
      The Operative: I want to resolve this like civilized men, I am not threatening you, I'm unarmed—
      Mal: Good. (shoots him)
    • Shortly followed by:
      The Operative: I am also wearing full body armor; I am not a moron.
    • A part cut from the final scene:
      The Operative: Serenity. You lost everything in that battle. Everything you believed in, everything you fought did you go on?
      Mal: If you're still standing there when those engines start goin', you'll never find out. [rear hatch closes] What a whiner.
  • After spending half of Jurassic World listening to Hoskins ramble on and on about how his Velociraptors should be used as war weapons, Owen's so pissed off by the time he returns to the paddock that he just hauls off and punches Hoskins before he can start rambling again.
    Hoskins: The mother hen has finally arrived—
    Owen: [punches him in the face] Get the hell out of here and stay away from my animals.
  • Equilibrium:
    • Once he realises he's beaten, the Big Bad makes a desperate appeal to Preston's newfound emotions:
      DuPont: Wait! Wait! Look at me. Look at me. I'm life. I live... I, I breathe... I feel. Now that you know it... can you really take it? Is it really worth the price?
      John Preston: I pay it gladly.
    • And in the scene prior to this one, where after a big "Here's how I just beat you" speech from the big bad:
      DuPont: And now you've given me yourself. Calmly. Cooly. Entirely without incident.
      John Preston: No. Not without incident. (Cue lots of Mooks getting shot)
  • Star Trek VI: He doesn't actually say it to the villain, but during the Big Bad's William Shakespeare-quoting speech, McCoy does seem unimpressed: "I'd give real money if he'd shut up." Punctuated by the fact that he and Spock are modifying the torpedo that will be used to enforce it then there's Kirk's over-the-top "Fire!"
  • The Untouchables, when Frank Nitti says this to Eliot Ness to taunt him about killing Malone before shoving him off a roof:
    Nitti: "He died screaming, like a stuck Irish pig. Now you think about that when I beat the rap."
    (Ness gets calmly pissed and drags Nitti to the ledge and tosses him off, Nitti screams on the way down)
    Ness: Did he sound anything like that?!?
  • Girl, Interrupted:
    • The antagonist Lisa, whom the others see as a something of a badass, stalks the heroine Susanna through the labyrinth beneath the mental institution. She gives an increasingly unstable speech about how free she is and how easy it is to push people's buttons.
      Lisa: You know, there are too many buttons in the world. There's too many and they're just... There's way too many just begging to be pressed. [....] And it makes me wonder. You know, it really makes me fuckin' wonder, why doesn't anybody ever press mine? Why am I so neglected? Why doesn't anybody reach in and rip out the truth and tell me that I'm a fuckin' whore, or that my parents wish I were dead?
      Susanna: (whirls around) Because you're dead already, Lisa! No one cares if you die, Lisa, because you're dead already. Your heart is cold. That's why you keep coming back here. You're not free. You need this place. You need it to feel alive. It's pathetic.
    • And it doesn't stop there.
      Susanna: I've wasted a year of my life. Maybe everyone out there's a liar, and maybe the whole world is stupid and ignorant, but I'd rather be in it. I'd rather be fucking in it than down here with you.
  • Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood:
    The Leprechaun: (to Emily, who's dangling from a rooftop) For two-thousand years you filthy mortals have tried to steal my riches to satisfy your greedy urges... and it always ends the same, with you begging for your miserable lives. Was it all worth it in the end? One day your kind will learn that the treasure of the Leprechauns—
    Rory: Hey!
    The Leprechaun: Huh? (gets shot in the chest several times by Rory)
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: A vengeful adversary, whose hand Tuco previously shot and permanently disabled, catches Tuco naked in a bathtub. He delivers a long speech about how he tracked the bandit down, and how he had lots of time to learn to shoot with his left hand, which is cut off when Tuco shoots him with a gun hidden under the bathtub bubbles.
  • Van Helsing
    Aleera: Anna, my love. It is your blood that shall keep me beautiful. What do you think of that?
    (laughs triumphantly, then screams as Anna catches a silver stake and impales her through the chest)
    Anna Valerious: I think if you're going to kill somebody, kill them! Don't stand around talking about it!
  • Taken 's biggest Moment of Awesome is just that. At the end Bryan gets to the fat sheikh that has bought his kidnapped daughter as a sex slave. He puts a knife on the girl's neck and attempts to negotiate, but Bryan just shoots him in the head before he completes the third word.
  • M has a villainous example, as Hans explains to his captors why they're no better than him and have no right to judge him, but they don't listen.
  • In the movie Breakdown, the Big Bad starts to threaten the hero and his wife (the latter having just been rescued from the chest freezer in which the villains left her to suffocate) only to be silenced nine words in when a severely stressed-out Kurt Russell screams "You FUCK!!!" and kicks him in the face.
  • In the film-version of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, the Mouth of Sauron shows the heroes Frodo's mail-shirt, and laughs and lectures them about how Frodo suffered before he died; in response, Aragorn just chops his head off, then declares to the others that he will not believe it.
    Mouth of Sauron (mockingly): It takes more to be a king than a broken Elvish blade.
    Aragorn: (Calmly draws the not-so broken Anduril and beheads him with it.)
  • In what has to be one of the most epic demonstrations of this trope possible, the Lord Marshal in The Chronicles of Riddick puts down a naysayer by ripping out his soul and showing it to him before casting it aside. The guy drops dead on the spot and the entire assembly is cowed into submission.
    • Also note that as this planet was a religious melting pot, his actions are particularly effective.
  • Minority Report features one of these at its climax as the villain tells John Anderton his reason for setting him up to be arrested for murder:
    Lamar Burgess: Think about all the lives that little girl (Agatha) has saved! Think about all the lives she will save! That little girl could have saved Sean!
    John Anderton: DON'T YOU EVER SAY HIS NAME! You used the memory of my dead son to set me up!
  • Several times in Star Wars:
    • In, A New Hope, when Greedo encounters Han Solo in the Mos Eisley Cantina, his threat to take the Millennium Falcon over Han's dead body prompts Han to shoot and kill him.
    • Vader puts Admiral Motti in his place.
      Motti: Don't try to frighten us with your sorceror's ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen datatapes. Or given you clairvoyance enough to find the Rebels' hidden fortre—
      [at that moment, Vader raises his hand and begins Force-choking Motti]
      Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
    • In Return of the Jedi, when Luke is hiding and refusing to fight Vader
      Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
      Luke: I will not fight you.
      Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes...your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong, especially for...sister! So you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me, now his failure is complete! If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will—
      Luke: [ignites lightsaber and comes out of hiding] NEVER!!
    • And topping it all is the one he gives to Emperor Palpatine, defying the old bastard good and hard:
      Luke: Never. [tosses lightsaber] I'll never turn to the Dark Side. You've failed, your Highness. I am a Jedi. Like my father before me.
    • In the novelization of Revenge of the Sith, Grievous tries to intimidate Obi Wan by stating "I've been trained in your Jedi arts by Count Dooku!", to which Obi-Wan answers, "How interesting. I trained the man who killed him."
    • In The Last Jedi, Kylo Ren gives a Hannibal Lecture about how he's going to destroy the Rebellion and the Jedi Order, which will die with Luke. Luke answers with an incredible Call-Back to one of his lines earlier in the movie:
    Amazing. Everything you just said...was wrong.
  • In Kate Bush's The Line, the Cross and the Curve, toward the end:
    Miranda Richardson: We have a lot in common, you and I. It took me years to be rid of those shoes! You are so weak. So stupid. So...
    Kate Bush: You're scared. You're scared, because you know you're losing your power over me.
  • John Frankenheimer's Seven Days in May; toward the end, when the conspiracy to overthrow the President is uncovered, General Scott accuses his former underling, Colonel "Jiggs" Casey, who blew the whistle on him, of betrayal:
    Gen. Scott I asked you a question - do you know who Judas was?!?
    Col. Casey Yes, I know who Judas was - he was a man I worked for and admired until he disgraced the four stars on his uniform.
  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: Harry interrupts Mr. Fire's "tough guy" speech with a few bullets to the chest.
  • In the final confrontation of Scream 3 the killer rants at Sidney about how her mother brought her death on herself, and how none of this is his fault. She interrupts him in a CMOA, he doesn't take it well.
    Sidney: God, why don't stop your whining and get on with it? I've heard all this shit before!
    Roman: Stop!
    Sidney: Do you know why you kill people Roman? Do you?
    Roman: I don't want to hear it!
    Sidney: Because you choose to! There is no one else to blame!
    Roman: Damn it! Fucking damn it!
    Sidney: Why don't you take some fucking responsibility?
    Roman: Fuck you!
    Sidney: Fuck you!
  • The Condemned features a scene where Sociopathic Soldier McStarley attempts to reason with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's character Jack Conroy, telling him about the horrors of war he's been forced to endure as a soldier and how he was locked up in prison for a number of years.
    Conroy: Sounds like you've had a hard life.
    McStarley: Yeah.
    Conroy: Good thing it's over. (shoots McStarley dead)
  • Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (2010): The Jabberwock is giving Alice the speech. She replies, "That's enough chatter," and chops off his tongue.
  • Down Periscope has one conducted over underwater telephone.
    Admiral Graham: You watch yourself, Dodge, you're addressing a superior officer!
    Captain Dodge: No, just a higher-ranking one. Catch us if you can! [hangs up] All ahead full!
  • Indy's father, Henry Sr., gives a brilliant one to a Nazi colonel during Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade:
    Colonel Vogel: Tell me about this miserable little diary of yours. (slaps Henry Sr. with his glove) We have the map, the book is useless and yet you come all the way back to Berlin to get it. Why? (he slaps Henry again) What are you hiding? (he slaps him again) What does the diary tell you that it doesn't tell us?
    (he tries to slap him again, but Henry grabs his wrist, stopping him)
    Professor Henry Jones Sr.: (through his teeth) It tells me that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try reading books instead of burning them!
  • Batman (1989) does the same thing. Instead of a gun, Batman just punches the guy out.
  • Hannibal Lecter: Hannibal Lecter did indeed get this reaction a couple of times
    • In Red Dragon, Hannibal tries to pull his trope on Will. Will simply wishes him goodnight and leaves the room. This might be the only way to win (or draw) against the great Hannibal Lecter; he fancies himself being able to understand anyone, so simply ignoring him and his 'genius' is the best possible retort.
    • Hannibal:
      • Ironically, the most literal example was not as dramatic as many other examples for this Trope:
      Lecter: Good evening, Clarice! Just like old times.
      Starling: Shut up.
      • Hannibal himself does in in response to Mason's To the Pain speech. Obviously, it was neither the time nor the place for his usual Trope. (Crazy doesn't mean stupid.)
  • X-Men Film Series
    • X-Men:
      Magneto: Why do none of you understand what I'm trying to do? Those people down there, they control our fate and the fate of every other mutant! Well, soon our fate will be theirs.
      Wolverine: You're so fulla shit! If you were really so righteous, it'd be you in that thing.
    • X-Men: First Class has one of the more unique examples of this. Magneto cuts off Sebastian Shaw's attempt at a Break Them by Talking by agreeing with him... but then explaining that his We Can Rule Together offer is never going to happen because "Unfortunately, you killed my mother." He then kills him. Brutally.
  • Played with in Mystery Team; Robert interrupts Jason's speech about why they are all going to survive by SHOOTING HIM.
  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon:
    • Sam finds himself facing off against Dylan Gould, a human who has agreed to assist the Decepticons in their takeover of Earth, provided that he is unharmed after the takeover (and possibly gets a fair share of the spoils; such as being leader of the human slaves). Sam tries to reason with Dylan, who ignores his pleas and turns on the final Pillar for the Space Bridge, warping Cybertron into Earth's atmosphere. Dylan then kicks Sam to the ground, telling him "You chose a side? You chose wrong!" Moments later, Sam appears with a metal bar in his hands, leading to this final conversation:
      Dylan: See that? (Points to Cybertron) I just saved a whole other world! You think you're a hero? You think you're a HERO!?"
      Sam: No... I'm just the messenger! (Rams Dylan with the metal bar, causing Dylan to collide with the Pillar's energy beam, electrocuting him to death.)
    • Optimus Prime does this to both the main villains, and it's as awesome as you'd suspect.
      Megatron: We need a truce. All I want is be back in charge. Besides, who'd you be without me, Prime?
      Optimus Prime: Time to find out. (Rips Megatron's head off with his axe...while being one-armed)
      Sentinel Prime: Optimus... all I ever wanted... was the survival of our race... You must see why I had to betray you...
      Optimus Prime: (picks up Megatron's gun) You didn't betray me, Sentinel. You betrayed yourself. (takes aim at Sentinel)
      Sentinel Prime: No. NO, OPTIMUS...!
      Optimus Prime: (Fires the gun, killing Sentinel)
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World has this:
    Gideon Graves: Who do you think you are, Pilgrim? You think you're better than me? Well, I'll tell you what you are. A PAIN IN MY ASS!!! You have any idea how long it took me to get the evil exes' contact information so I could form this stupid league? Like two hours! TWO HOURS!!! (coughs up some quarters) You're not cool enough for Ramona. You're zero! You're nothing! Me? I'm what's hip! I'm what's happening! I'm blowing up right now!
    Scott Pilgrim: You are blowing up... RIGHT NOW! (punts Gideon in the head, killing him)
  • In the original Dirty Harry, the title character is held at gunpoint by Scorpio, who plans to kill him after a good bit of Evil Gloating, but before he can get the chance, Harry stabs Scorpio in the leg. And for added humor, Scorpio lets out a huge girly scream.
  • From Pan's Labyrinth.
    Captain Vidal: Tell my son the time his father died. Tell him-.
    Mercedes: No. He won't even know your name.
    Pedro then shoots Vidal in the face.
  • Battle: Los Angeles has Nantz's speech to his squad at the ruined FOB base which merely reminds all his troops (one of whom assumes that he deliberately did it to get the medal) to "shut the f*ck up."
  • The Incredibles:
    • Discussed early in the film, when Frozone relates the time that Baron von Ruthless had him captured and at the mercy of his death ray, but instead of finishing him off, launched into a Breaking Speech about how weak Frozone was in comparison. It's not stated, but the implication is that Frozone proceeded to escape and punch von Ruthless' lights out mid-speech.
    • Mr. Incredible tries to invoke this during his first confrontation with Syndrome, getting Syndrome to launch into a Motive Rant with the aim of distracting him long enough to lob a tree at him.
      Syndrome: Turns out that's the way the world works: there are people, whole countries who want respect, and they will pay through the nose to get it. How do you think I got rich? I made weapons. And now I have a weapon that only I can defeat, and when I unleash it—
      [Mr. Incredible lobs a tree at Syndrome, who dodges it and freezes Mr. Incredible]
      Syndrome': You sly dog! You got me monologuing!
    • A straighter example occurs at the film's climax. Syndrome launches into a Villainous Breakdown rant, swearing to keep pursuing the Incredibles and trying to kidnap Jack-Jack to raise him as a villain; Mr. Incredible responds by throwing a car at Syndrome, knocking him into a plane's jet turbine and killing him.
  • Resident Evil: Extinction has this:
    Dr. Isaacs: (as the Tyrant) For so long, I thought you were the future; I was wrong, I am the future.
    Alice: (laughs) No, You're just... another asshole, and we're both gonna die down here.
    (laser grid turns on and slices the Tyrant into pieces, but stops after an Alice clone shuts it off)
  • The remake of Night of the Demons (2009) has a literal example when the protagonist Maddie is cornered in a magically-protected room by Angela (who's possessed by the lead demon), who goes into a rant about how how Maddie and her friends are going to suffer horribly before they're possessed.
    Maddie: Shut up, bitch. (slams door in Angela's face)
  • During the Final Battle at the climax of The Matrix Revolutions, Smith knocks Neo to the floor and proceeds to give a nihilistic rant that concludes with "Why, Mr. Anderson?! Why?! Why do you persist?!" Neo's response is a very simple Call-Back to his last conversation with the Oracle that perfectly shoots Smith down.
    Neo: Because I choose to.
  • Happens not once, not twice, not three times, but four times to Loki in The Avengers:
    • During the battle in Stuttgart, Germany, Loki forces a random group of bystanders to bow down to him. One refuses to kneel.
      Loki: In the end, you will always kneel.
      German Old Man: (stands up out of the crowd) Not to men like you.
      Loki: (chuckles) There are no men like me.
      German Old Man: There are always men like you.
    • Coulson gets his moment too. While he lays dying, he tells Loki he's going to lose and Loki starts to taunt him. Coulson blasts him through the wall with the Thorbuster mid-sentence.
      Coulson: So that's what that does.
    • Black Widow doesn't even bother to tell him to shut up. When he gives her a devastating Breaking Speech, she is visibly shaken and horrified... but then she walks off in the middle of his speech, leaving him confused. She was playing along to get him to spill important information while gloating. (It turns out that he did get to her a little. She's just such a good actress, he never realized.)
      Natasha: Thank you for your cooperation.
    • At the climax, Loki is cornered by the Hulk, who has just finished tearing through half of Loki's army. Loki, furious, seethes that he is a god and not someone to be bullied by a green simpleton who— *grab* *smash* *smash* *smash* *smash* (beat) *smash* *smash* *smash* *drop*.
      Hulk: Puny god.
  • The Truman Show's climax, where the eponymous show's producer, Christof, attempts to convince Truman to stay in the manufactured world he made for him, which is produced for television 24/7. Truman is stunned, but does give one hell of a great comeback:
    Christof: There's no more truth out there than there is in the world I created for you. The same lies, the same deceit. But in my world, you have nothing to fear. I know you better than you know yourself...
    Truman: You never had a camera in my head.
  • A Few Good Men: At the very end, when Jessup is arrested for Santiago's death, he coldly accuses Kaffee of only succeeding in weakening a country.
    Kaffee: Don't call me son. I'm a lawyer, and an officer in the US Navy. And you're under arrest, you son of a bitch.
  • At the end of Oblivion (2013) , you get this doozy:
    Sally: Jack... I made you. I am your God.

  • At the climax of Police Academy 6, Captain Harris is literally told to shut up by both Commissioner Hurst and the villain who is disguised as Hurst.
  • Iron Man 2:
    • Tony does this in the novelization, throwing Ivan's words about being a thief and murderer back in his face.
    • He pulls this off in the movie, as well, when he visits Vanko in his holding cell.
      Ivan: The truth: all I have to do is sit here and watch as the world will consume you.
      Tony: Where are you gonna be watching the world consume me from? Oh, right, a prison cell. I'll send you a bar of soap. Don't drop it.
