    Would like to know how “clean one’s clock” means “pulverize someone.”

    well, at least he didn’t offer to paint his wagon.

    Don’t believe I’ve ever seen Rat drop a beer before.

    There are certain times that it’s good to drop your beer.

    It might be in line with “take you apart”, as that is needed to clean a clock.

    Not as good, but there’s also “I’m gonna rearrange your face!”

    Based on a current lame tv series featuring men w/motorcycles, he’ll hug you first, then ask if you’re okay. And then he’ll beat you.

    or send him to sleep with the fishes … (Note: not an invitation to go SCUBA diving …).

    I’m not sure, but I suggest perhaps it’s a reference to Cockney Rhyming slang – a clock face. He’s going to apply pressure to their faces… with his fist.

    In Cockney rhyming slang, face is boat race.

    The origin of Clean ones Clock appears uncertain.

    Even better than the Spilled Coffee trope is the Spilled Beer trope! At least Rat is smart enough to run and hide rather than have his clock cleaned by Biker Bob [I’m just guessing based on past Pastis practice that that’s his name].
