The few words, if any, to say before a fight ensues.
The most common topics to insult are:
Your Mom/dad
Your sister/brother
Your close friend

Your girlfriend/boyfriend
Your wife/husband
Your son/daughter

Your pet
Your financial situation

Or anything else you take seriously

Rick: I'm gonna kick your fucking ass! (He glides his arms around him to end up with him getting into a fighting stance, both said their fighting words.)
