Kindly submitted by P.E

Morton is a cocky whelp who, having suckled on Dick Jones'(q.v.) teat for so long, has finally usurped him as the main player in OCP's law enforcement programme.

Jones is not the sort of person to take this lying down and so hires crime lord, Clarence Boddicker (q.v.), to pay Morton a little visit.

Boddicker shoots Morton repeatedly in the legs, disabling him, before putting on a tape of Jones, who is gloating victoriously.

As the tape is playing, Boddicker places a timed bomb on the table across the lounge from Morton and walks out. Morton drags himself over to the table but, before he can grab the bomb, it detonates, killing him and blowing the house to kingdom come.

I'd add irony to this. I actually felt sorry for this douche during this scene.
Comment 2 by 'servo' (reply to this comment)
Something I noticed during this death scene that was instead of a tape Boddicker pulled out a video disc of some sort, not a tape and put that in the machine. It was kind of predicting the future in a way back in 1987, seeing how DVDs would eventually overtake video tapes.
