The 2012 Film

  • The last 15 minutes or so of the film: Taylor and Z are gunned down by Big Evil and his gang, and Z doesn't make it. Taylor somehow survives, and at Z's funeral, he doesn't get more than four words into his eulogy before breaking down.
    Taylor: He was my brother...
  • In a bizarre case of Mood Whiplash, the last 3-4 minutes is the film's Funny Moment; in a flashback to the day of the shooting, Taylor and Z are casually chatting in their squad car, and Z recalls the memory of hiding under his girlfriend's parents' bed as a teenager, and they start making love unaware that he's there.
