The 25 Best One-Liners in Action Movies

25. “I’ll take my coat back now, asshole.”

Did the world really need a sequel to John Carpenter’s 1981 action movie masterwork Escape From New York. That’s a negative, especially when you realize that Carpenter’s decision to once again have Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) own the screen resulted in the ridiculous, at times cheesy dumb-fun flick Escape From L.A.. Inferior to New York in every way, the 1996 follow-up does have some redeemable qualities, one of which comes when Plissken stumbles across a dead thug who’s wearing his precious leather jacket, prompting the appropriately disrespectful barb, “I’ll take my coat back, asshole.”
