This is what happens when you bring a knife to a gun fight.
I’m going to need a drink after this.
One more step Mr. Hands, and I’ll show you what I’d do for a Klondike Bar.
This is what you get for spoiling Season 3 of Game of Thrones.
Surrender, or die!
My horoscope said it would be a bad day for travelling!
This duel may be rigged but its barrels of fun.
-Michael E. Ackerman
Can you see my bullets?
Don’t worry–I have you covered.
Hey, give me back my rum!!
Are ya feelin’ lucky–arrrrgh!
You came to a gun fight with a knife???
I’M TAKING BACK THE BLACK PEARL!
-Carol Nicolucci (and Johnny Depp!)
Is that knife from Tiffany’s?
Trust me, this is a surefire cure for sea sickness
Your not gonna steal my precious sparkly unicorn this time!
Surrender Tiffany, or off with your head.
I won’t let you have the last Hostess Twinkie!
Once is not enough.
I told you I am King of the Mast!
Soon you will cease to exist!
Why can’t you just wait for your turn like everyone else?
Oh, come on, Mr.Hands! You know that two pistols ALWAYS trump one knife.
Hands off me booty!
No, you hand me the knife first, then I give you the guns, OR I’M TELLING MOM!
…Likely story. You thought I was stuck, and you wanted to cut me loose.
Go ahead–make my day.
Ahoy! Can we take this up later, there’s a great exhibit at the New Britain Museum!
Curse you, scallywag! Argh!
Climb a bit higher and I’ll have the whites of your beady eyes.
It’s nothing personal, I’m afraid of heights!
Not in my house!
Not kidding! It’s my turn to drive the boat!
Whoa, mate, I’m on your side!
Do these knickers make my butt look big?
Take a deep breath and “hold it”!
I said, don’t let me hear any more jokes about my mama…
I’ve got you now, me hearty!
Are you sure you don’t have a cell phone?
Not in THAT get-up, you don’t.
I swear I didn’t know she was your wife!
-Andrew D. Rich
Surrender! Or I will fire you right out of a job!
So long, John Silver!
What a revolting development this is!
Rock, paper, scissors, SHOOT!
But why is the rum gone??
Try, try, before you die!!
Would you like fries with your cheeseburger?
Did I tell you, you have the prettiest blue eyes!
Matey, the odds are 2 to 1, I win–you lose! Time for your swim!!
One more step, and you’re a dead man. So I’d advise you stay there. Unless you’d like to lie there on the deck!
You miss, you fail. I miss, I have another shot.
Surrender thy blade, scoundrel, or prepare to meet thy maker!
Fred, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times to use a toothbrush to clean your teeth!
Mock my shoe buckles ONE more time!
This blunderpluss will blow your head clean off. Tell me, pirate: do you feel lucky?
A fine position you’ve found yourself in, Hands.
