This appears not to be an example. The trope requires one emphatic statement, a big reversal in circumstances, then the opposite statement. As currently described we ain't got the change in circumstances. We've also got two parties demanding opposite things at the same time — for the trope to work, its one person or group having a comical change of mind as their situation changes.

  • Also, from the same movie where Indy and Shorty are trapped in the death room, while Willy is outside.
Willie: (she is in a room filled with hideous bugs): Indy let me in.
Shorty: No, Let us out!
Willie: Let me in!
Shorty: Let us out!
Indy: SHUT UP !!
