reQuote

That was too close... You were almost a Jill sandwich!

Original Japanese Quote

サンドイッチが出来上がるところだったぜ"

"Jill Sandwich" is a quote (reQuote) derived from a humorous English translation choice in the original 1996 Resident Evil game.

Barry Burton tells that line to fellow S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine after rescuing her from descending ceiling trap inside the Spencer Mansion.

The "Jill Sandwich" became a famous saying in the early fandom alongside "I have this" and "itchy tasty," which became an inside joke in other games. You can find this line referenced in these other games:

  • In Dead Rising (2006), there is a restaurant named "Jill's Sandwiches."
  • In The Mercenaries Reunion DLC for Resident Evil 5 (2009), Barry possesses a melee attack called "Barry Sandwich."
  • In the English translation of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (2015), Claire Redfield jokes, "I was almost a Claire Sandwich." which was not present in the original Japanese script.
  • In Dead By Daylight (2016), a power add-on for Nemesis is named "Jill's Sandwich."
