Death References

Postby Kooshmeister » Fri Jun 30, 2017 5:36 am

I figured I'd cover how the show handled mention of death, i.e., whether they actually say "die," or if they use euphemisms. Note, to count it must explicitly refer to a desire to kill someone or be in reference to someone who has been killed.

The Pastmaster Always Rings Twice:

1. "You have the right to remain buried!"
2. "These bones ain't movin' now."
3. "Eat afterburner!"

The Giant Bacteria:

1. "Although we believe he may have drowned in the bay."
2. "And now that you've had your breakfast, it's time to begin our commute into Megakat City!"
3. "French-fried bacteria!"
4. "Hey, you know a better way to cook a giant bacteria?"

The Wrath of Dark Kat:

1. "One more shot and Dark Kat is history!"
2. "Take care of him!"

Destructive Nature:

1. "Destroy the SWAT Kats!"
2. "Blast it!"
3. "Is there no way to destroy these things?"
4. "Blast 'em!"
5. "Eat my backwash, you lettuceheads!"
6. "Barbecued cabbage, my favorite!"
7. "It's oblivion for you, SWAT Kat!"
8. "You'll be joining him!"

The Metallikats:

1. "We heard youse drowned."
2. "I think youse two shoulda stayed dead!"
3. "You guys are history!"
4. "We're dealin' all a' you out!"
5. "Like rubbin' out that crud Mayor Manx!"
6. "Mac and Molly have been dead for months."
7. "No, they ain't dead!"
8. "They're back from the dead to get revenge!"
9. "I thought we bought the big litterbox for sure that time!"
10. "When my robots found you, your bodies were destroyed."
11. "End of story, end of you!"
12. "Think you can handle the Mayor while I go after them?"
13. "'Think you can handle the Mayor?'"

Bride of the Pastmaster:

1. "We're doomed!"
2. "Destroy the sorcerers!"
3. "Finish them off!"
4. "Destroy them!"
5. "My cyclops will destroy them!"
6. "It will be your final resting place!"
7. "My cyclops will pound you into eternity!"
8. "Then I will destroy you and your precious Megalith City!"
9. "We gave that one-eye the one-two!"
10. "Alas, now you both must perish!"
11. "He's gonna fry you for sure!"

Chaos in Crystal:

1. "You're doomed anyway! You hear me? Doomed!"
2. "They'll shatter Shard like a big pane a' glass!"

More to come.
