Removing MovieClips

Hello all!

I wanted to know if there was a way to remove a movieclip using code from within the clip itself. In other words, I want the clip to remove itself. Im making a game where you abduct people, so when the human reaches the same height of your ship, he is removed. I have humans spawning randomly so I cant keep track of their specific MC names.

Well I guess I could make him respawn when he reaches the ship… :cross-eye

… but for future refrence does anyone know how?
