100 Greatest One-Liners Compilation Before The Kill Honors Famous Last Words, From Winners To Losers

If you have about 12 minutes to spare today, you have time to share our appreciation for how “100 Greatest One-Liners: Before The Kill” honors the shared virtue of every generation’s men and women of action that we respect the most: a sense of decorum.

There really is a certain propriety to carrying out a cinematic kill. Clocking in at several times the beginning-to-end length of most action sequences, this tidy compilation highlights over 50 years of that inevitable moment when heroes and villains alike eloquently mark their adversaries’ mortality with one sentimental quip. From the iconic greats such as Schwarzenegger (“I’ll be back”…”Knock-knock”…”You’re fired”), Bruce Willis (“Yippee-ki-yay, motherf***er”…”Happy trails, Hans”), Roddy Piper’s legendary declaration that he came to chew bubblegum and kick ass (SPOILER: he’s all out of bubblegum) and even the immortal John Wayne’s command to “fill your hands, you son of a bitch” to the memetic “THIS. IS. SPARTA!” and TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE’s hilariously corny “Terrorize this!”, you never let a soon-to-be dead man walking have the last word.

That little parting monologue is much more than offering your opponent a sporting last chance to turn the tables on your smartass repartee. Let’s be honest, to dispatch a foe determined to go down swinging and NOT offer a cursory sendoff is a bit dismissive, don’t you think? You might as well dress your adversary in a cleanly pressed red Starfleet uniform before putting two between his eyes.

Even in a duel to the death, a little respect never goes amiss.
