Massad Ayoob Humor

Massad Ayoob is so tough that he:

  • Smacks Jack Bauer (24) around until Jack agrees that plastic pistols are "OK" to use.
  • Tells Charles Bronson that "shot placement is key" when shooting vigilantes with a nickel-plated .32.
  • Mentions to Lee Marvin that taking 12 military criminals on a suicide mission probably means he's not on the Colonel's List.
  • Tells Major Hogan in Stalag 13 to actually leave the camp since the series lasted longer than the war.
  • Shows up in Colorado for a nice hunting trip when some pesky Russians show up. Extremely peeved at them for messing up his vacation, he recruits some plucky teenagers and then successfully drives the Russians outside North America. A documentary called "Red Dawn" is made. Ayoob asks not to be credited.
  • Smacks some sense into John Connor (Terminator) and states that bad things tend to happen when plot devices, successfully used in the first 2 movies, tend to suck when an older actor is looking for a new vehicle. He then drives off the newly arrived Terminator machines.
  • Assists Kate Beckinsdale when she is trying to shoot through the floor by hitting "pause" and actively sawing a circle out under her feet, and by secretly reloading her guns.
