What I was wondering is what you say to someone you have just collided with, especially if you manage to trip their anchor in the process?
Please don't shoot me!
or maybe ...
I have a wife and 12 children to take care of! Please don't shoot me!
Edit ... or if you are one of the Blues Brothers, then maybe ...
Jake:[Falling to his knees before her]
Oh please don't kill us. Please, please don't kill us. You know I love ya baby, I wouldn't leave ya. It wasn't my fault.
Woman: You miserable slug. You think you can talk you're way out of this? You betrayed me.
Jake: No, I didn't. Honest. I ran outta gas. I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from outta town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake, a terrible flood, locust's. It wasn't my fault!! I swear to God!!
Woman: Oh Jake, Jake, honey.
[Jake embraces her in a passionate kiss, then drops her in the mud.]
Elwood:[To the Woman]
Take it easy.
