We all know the adrenaline rush that comes along with walking into your place of work and declaring that you're done for good. Whether you're throwing your black waiter apron to the floor solo or urging others to follow suit (à la "Jerry Maguire") that feeling of freedom and fear is a classic one -- but it doesn't seem to happen quite the same in Hollywoodland.

While some actors stick to their last words, for most, declaring 'I Quit' seems to be a melodramatic way of staying relevant.
