No matter how many times I heard it in the schoolyards and on the sidewalks, this one always puzzled me as a rather dramatic and harsh way to reject a simple and sincere apology.

I understand that sometimes it takes time to let go of the hurt and forgiveness is a temporal process and all and all... but must it come down to life and death?

Usage

Me: "Oh shucks, I left your movie at home man... Sorry! Tomorrow, god promise
You: "Sorry won't make a dead man alive...
Me: "Geezus!"
Jesus: "Don't take my name!"
