[Vorstedt and his goons have broken into Murtaugh's house and have gagged him and Trish]
I bet you're wondering what we've done to your kids, aren't ya?
[squeals and groans from the Murtaugh's]
I'll bet your mind is going fucking bananas, isn't it?
[more squeals and groans]
Now this has just been a warning. Next time it will get bloody. Now you tell your people to *back off*. Don't you go being a smart kaffir. Perhaps we'll let you live, ja.

Double the lethal, double the weapon, double the fun! :D
A terrific sequel to one of the first action duo films that worked well. Adding Joe Pesci to the cast, what a great choice! He was so funny, together, Mel, Danny, and Joe are the three stooges of Lethal Weapon. They work together so well. This movie has everything that you could want: action, romance, comedy, and drama.
Again, like in my last Lethal Weapon comment, must we go on for ten sentences? I mean, is it just me or isn't that a little silly? I think so. It's like, you can't just put down you liked the movie or hated it? I miss the old IMDb! *sob!*
PS: Ask me questions about the movie if you have doubts about me witnessing it's glory.
