Taking control or over-reacting

Do you watch movies? Do you ever get lessons from them? If you saw Crocodile Dundee in 1986, you may remember this part of the movie.

Dundee is threatened by a mugger with a switchblade]
Sue Charlton: Mick, give him your wallet.
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: What for?
Sue Charlton: He’s got a knife.
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: [chuckling] That’s not a knife.
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: [Dundee draws a large Bowie knife]
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: *That’s* a knife.
[Dundee slashes the teen mugger’s jacket. He and his friends run away]

How about the Untouchables in 1987? Do you remember this advice from Jimmy Malone (Sean Connery)?

“He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!”

I love movies with a message.
