88. Getting impaled by a hot steam pipe by Arnold Schwarzenegger
As Seen In: Commando (1985)
When putting together our Arnold Schwarzenegger Soundboard, it was inevitable that many choice quotes would be left out. For example, there's the Austrian action hero's memorable line from Commando: "Let off some steam, Bennett."
Typical of Schwarzenegger's soundbites, it's a hokey but enduring pun, said as his character, John Matrix, finally gets the upper hand against a worthy physical adversary, Bennett (Vernon Wells), by hurling a large, pointy-ended pipe straight into the man's chest. As the steam funnels out of the pipe's opposite end, Schwarzenegger's dialogue becomes truly poetic.
