|— The Final Sacrifice|
Mannix! is a long-running television series about a private detective. Mannix was played by the late Mike Connors (aka Touch Connors of Experiment #503 Swamp Diamonds)
The Mannix riff usually involves someone jumping down/up, a quick car maneuver, or something else intended to be "action-y". Results of said "action" depends on the movie and load weight of character (e.g. Mitchell).
The Mannix riff sometimes includes a reference to the four-note opening sequence of the Mannix theme song.
