At the end of the movie Unforgiven, Clint Eastwood's character needs to break out of town. He announces that if anyone tries to shoot him he'll kill him, then kill his family, and then burn their house down.

My colleague Neal Ford coined this term to refer to a contract (specifically an NDA) with particularly strong penalties, since he felt it was the legal equivalent to these threats.
