It's an excellent moment indeed, and a brilliant movie all-around.

But it's well worth noting that this scene is clearly an homage to Captain Rhodes from Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD. A scene which still manages to top even the awesomeness of the homage, for the original has three points in its favor: 1.) Bub, 2.) the unrefrigerated pig intestines that made the cast gag, and 3.) Pilato's legendary ad-lib, "CHOKE ON 'EM!"

Of course, maybe it's not an homage, as I don't recall hearing that said outright by Wright and company. But it seems pretty obvious to me.
