The 25 Best One-Liners in Action Movies

2. “Consider that a divorce!”

It’s the line that all unhappily married men wish they could say, yet can’t do so thanks to a little something called prison, not to mention the death penalty. But in director Paul Verhoeven’s endlessly entertaining sci-fi/action romp Total Recall, the always reliable catchphrase machine Arnold Schwarzenegger gets to speak for millions of discontent husbands worldwide when he says, after shooting his traitorous wife (played by Sharon Stone) in the head, “Consider that a divorce,” following her desperate reminder of, “Be reasonable—after all, we’re married.” That’s certainly much quicker than hiring a lawyer and meeting a judge.
