Writing: best lines just before a fist fight

I’ve been trolling the net for someone whose made a top ten list of best lines ever used in a movie or novel just before one character drives in for a brawl, fisticuffs, fray, fracas, melee, rumble, or pugilistic episode.

It doesn’t seem to exist.

So here is the start of my (brainstorming) list:

  1. Them’s fightin’ words!
  2. How’d you like a knuckle sandwich?
  3. Roundhouse ready you bastard?
  4. Come get some! (from Ash, not Doom)
  5. You wanna piece of me?
  6. I’m takin you down
  7. I’m gonna get medieval on yo ass
  8. Settle in for your whompin
  9. It ain’t nothing for me to whup you!
  10. Watch the birdie!

As you can see, these are all cliche lines. I need fresh ones. Add your own here!

Added by xxhawkeyexx:

  1. “I promise it won’t hurt, you won’t even notice when I go get you”
  2. “Why are you looking for a fight, anyway? You know you’re going to get beaten up tomorrow”
  3. “Is that your best shot? My little sister has better aim and she’s four”
  4. “You are a dying on high cholesterol cow! So, don’t you dare call me fat, cow!” (<<<yeah quite random…)

Yet more…

  1. “Lets get ready to scrumble!”
  2. “Hey big guy, why don’t you pick on a real man!” – Jack Burton
  3. “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” – princess bride

  1. Hey, thanks for passing by my blog, and about a line that’s not cliched…well:

    “I promise it won’t hurt, you won’t even notice when I go get you”

    “Why are you looking for a fight, anyway? You know you’re going to get beaten up tomorrow”

    “Is that your best shot? My little sister has better aim and she’s four”

    “You are a dying on high cholesterol cow! So, don’t you dare call me fat, cow!” (<<<yeah quite random…)
