"Get to the Choppa!" Arnold Schwarzenegger's Trademark Demand Crushes 'The Tonight Show'


Nearly thirty years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger read a script. In that script - for the action classic 'Predator' - there was a single line. A simple demand. A request screamed in heat of battle. "Get to the chopper!" Perhaps Arnold considered his options. His inflections. How much desperation he would put into it. Should the emphasis be on the "get" or on "chopper"? There were too many options. Yet, he still picked the best one, resulting in an instant classic catchphrase: "Get to the choppa!!"

The actor/former governor has been forced to scream the line countless times since, but on last night's 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' Fallon found a fresh way to get the star to yelp it out over and over again. It involves a fake QVC show and, yes, a Slap Chop. So, what are you waiting for? Get to the get to the choppa...
