The final scene of Terms of En-Rampagement

Terms of En-Rampagement is a "working title" for the film depicting Archer's "rampage" during the "Placebo Effect" episode. The film was largely shot by Lana Kane. The rampage took place as Archer investigated, interrogated, and murdered his way through the ranks of the Irish Mob. The cause of the rampage is due to Dr. Krieger pointing out that the cancer pills he was buying from the pharmacy were merely sugar pills and his IV therapy fluids were merely Zima. Archer begins his investigation to find the "douchebag in charge" at the pharmacy and ends with him killing the leader of the Irish Mob. (Note, it is not shown that Archer actually shot, or killed the leader, but it is implied).

The final scene is an homage to an episode of Magnum P.I. “Did You See the Sunrise?” where Thomas Magnum asks the question before he turns and shoots a former POW camp guard. This is considered one of the more shocking and memorable endings to a TV show. Archer asks a similar question, “Did you see Regis this morning?” (Regis may be Regis Philbin.)


  • The name is likely a reference to the film Terms of Endearment
  • The ending line "Did you see Regis this morning?" is a reference to an episode of Magnum P.I. in which the main character asks a Russian POW camp commandant "Did you see the sunrise this morning?", before shooting him in the same style as Archer.
  • Cyril and Cheryl both suggested various alternate titles for the film:
    • Cyril: Magnum P.U.
    • Cheryl: Citizen Dickbag; Snark Victory; Casablumpkin
