Arnold Schwarzenegger, with his legendary catchphrases like “I’ll be back,” and “Get to the chopper,” has given cinema houses some of its most golden moments and his fans iconic scenes that they will cherish for years to come. Not only has he reached great milestones with his cinematic journey, but his prowess as a bodybuilder, too, is no hidden treasure. What is, however, a hidden treasure in the case of Arnold Schwarzenegger is his incredible humor.

The bodybuilding champion turned actor despite being the greatest rank holder in almost any room he walks into never takes himself too seriously. And a clip of the action star on Jimmy Fallon from 2015 is a testament to this.

Arnold Schwarzenegger made a paradigm shift from bodybuilding to acting and then to politics. However, throughout all this, the Austrian Oak kept his humor intact and even further enhanced it throughout the years. This is true for his appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show as he was promoting Sabotage. Fallon spoke about a weird dream he had about seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger on QVC and rolled a clip of the Austrian Oak promoting kitchen appliances.

While Jimmy Fallon does most of the talking while advertising a blender, an excited Schwarzenegger keeps pushing him to get to the “Chopper!“. However, in this case, neither of the two individuals is escaping a jungle or being hunted by an alien creature. And the “chopper” that Schwarzenegger wants Jimmy Fallon to get to is a simple vegetable chopper.

The clip is nothing short of a comedic masterpiece and is just one among the many instances where the bodybuilding champion has used his iconic dialogues for laughs. One of the most popular examples of the same would be his cameos in The Expendables franchise.

The multi-million dollar franchise, The Expendables, recently released its fourth movie without Arnold Schwarzenegger. While the actor explained why he was not a part of the fourth movie, it does not take away from the fact that he was the highlight of the other three in terms of comic relief and, of course, action. While James Fallon may have fetched out a kitchen chopper to get Schwarzenegger to recite the iconic dialogues, Sylvester Stallone got a real one for his rival turned-friend.

In The Expendables 3, the Austrian Oak recreates his iconic dialogue from the Predator as he yells for the squad to “get to the chopper,” in his heavy accent. Given his absence from the recent movie, it seems like this might have been the last classic Arnold Schwarzenegger joke that kept The Expendables franchise young for so long.
