"North By Northwasted", Way to Die #411, is the seventh and final death featured in "Death Certificates", which aired on July 15, 2012.


Dolph is a director looking to recreate the iconic cropduster scene from the Alfred Hitchcock film North by Northwest, using little people as actors (As Cary Grant = Gary Can't) (As Eva Marie Saint = Bob) and a remote-control plane to be the cropduster. Dolph calls Gary and Bob that politically incorrect word that rhymes with 'gidget'. After hours behind schedule, Dolph manages to get his cast and crew set for the scene. Gary Can't runs from the plane like in the movie and jumps out of the way as it gets near him. The plane flies past Dolph and severs his carotid artery with its' wing, causing Dolph to die instantly from massive hemorrhaging.

"Lower, you moron, lower! I don't care if it hits him, I don't care if it kills him, you get it lower!

-Dolph being a dickhead
