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.
