Last Action Hero (1993) Poster

Tom Noonan: Ripper



  • Ripper : Jack, what kept you? Andy here's been getting nervous. I promised him you'd come. Gave him my word of honor he could watch you die. Lose the cannon.

    Jack Slater : Has he hurt you Andrew?

    Ripper : Hurt, Jack? You say hurt? What do you know about hurt, Jack? You put me in a cage for ten years.

    Jack Slater : You should've gotten the death penalty.

    Ripper : Yeah, shoulda, woulda, coulda, yeah, yeah, yeah, right. Things crawling around on your head. Sitting on my chest when I wake up. You know what that's like, Jack? It was your illegal search, that rendered the bloody axe admissible. Remember, Jack? Now lose the gun.

    [Jack puts his gun on the ground] 

    Jack Slater : Alright, I'm unarmed.

    Ripper : Just one gun, Jack? You gotta be kidding.

    [Jack removes nearly a dozen guns] 

    Ripper : That all, sport?

    Jack Slater : Yup, that about does it.

    [pulls out grenade] 

    Jack Slater : Oh, unless you consider this a weapon.

    [throws grenade at Ripper's feet] 

    Ripper : Brilliant, brilliant, Jack. I surrender.

    Jack Slater : It's a live grenade.

    Ripper : Yeah right, Jack, right right right. You're gonna sacrifice your own child to get to me. I'm very flattered, Jack, but I doubt it. Andy, pick up the grenade.

    [Andy slowly picks up the grenade] 

    Ripper : Come on. Show it to me. That's good. Jack, that toy, can't hurt the boy.

    [flashes Axe] 

    Ripper : But this one can.

  • Ripper : Hey, Jack. What kept you?

    Jack Slater : Are you alright, Danny?

    Danny Madigan : Yes, sir.

    Ripper : You know, I tried to change, Jack. I really tried to do what he told me to do. You know, but I kept hearing that old music. That's how I knew you'd come, Jack. Now lose the piece.

    [throws gun off the roof] 

    Jack Slater : There, it's now it's between you and me. Now let the boy go.

    Ripper : Now we've played this number before haven't we, Jack? Let's see, what comes next. You t - you throw the gun away. Right... we did that part.

    [mock laughter, puts down axe] 

    Ripper : Then, you tell me to let the kid go. Ah, I'm getting bored, why don't we just skip to the end?

    [throws Danny over the ledge] 

  • Chris Connelly : Rip, Rip, come here. What brings you here tonight?

    Ripper : I, uh, I thought I might kill someone.

    Chris Connelly : [laughs]  You should start with your designer.
