A British Army term, slang for using one bullet of a sniper rifle to kill two men.
The term comes from the 1990 film Quigley Down Under in which the hero, played by Tom Selleck, uses an old Sharps rifle to devastating effect.
While Rifleman Osmand was stationed in the sandbox, he did a Quigley on two escaping Taliban riding a motorcycle.
This phrase is mostly commonly found at the end of every broadcast of "The Daily Show", with Jon Stewart saying the tag line after the last commercial break, and throwing up a short video clip before the end credits.
