    Classic.
    Haven't see commando, but that line reminds me of one from Thuderball:

    James Bond: Do you mind if my friend sits this one out? She's just dead.

    What? How is it that The Abyss only has 50% of the vote? What nonsense is this?

    I mentioned it in the Best Movie Scene of all-time tournament, but I'm not sure there's ever been a more badass introduction to a character than the one in Commando.

    That new ending hurts it a bit. What is insane is that To Live and Die in LA is going down to Commando.
