Quickly. From an oriental phrase. Use mostly in the form Mo Riki Tik. Mostly used by U.S. Marines.

The phrase "most riki-tik" was used in the Movie Jarhead, and more recently in an episode of the Unit. Although the usage is primarily a Marine Corps slang term.
Better get up that hill most riki-tik before Gunney comes.
