The Variations of “Take It Easy”

How many instances can you use the phrase “take it easy” where it even remotely makes sense?

Calming someone down: "Whoa man, take it easy!" – You’re freaking out on me, stop it please.

Parting phrase: "Bye… take it easy!" – I’m leaving, and trying to appear chill and relaxed.

Pleading: "Hey now, take it easy." – I’m treading on some thin ice with you, and it would be in my best interest if you’d calm down because I need to get out of this situation.

Singing: "La, la la, take it easy!" – Singing a song with the lyrics, “take it easy” such as “Girl, Take It Easy” by the Pietasters.

Insulted: "Take it EASY, bro!" – You took it too far, and I want you to take it down a notch.

Offended: Take it easy with the [donuts, child porn, whatever]! – You are doing something I do not like and I think you should stop.

I seriously can’t think of any more. And I’m pretty sure started this blog post almost a year ago.
