The "Say 'Goodnight', Dick" was not original to Rowan and Martin, nor to George and Gracie. It was originally spoken by Harry Lee Wigley.

My favorite exit line is from my Grandfather, who on his deathbed, looked at me and said "Aaaaaauuuuuuuggggggghhh"

General Stonewall Jackson is reported to have said, "Let us cross over the river and rest in the shade of the trees." Robin and Linda Williams wrote a great song based on it. Makes you wonder what he was seeing.

Shanks appeared, took the trophy and said "Thank's Billy. I deserve it" then walked off stage to the applause of his own team and stunned silence everwhere else. Priceless.

Gnu, That line was from the 1965 Blake Edwards movie "The Great Race". It was spoken by the evil Baron Von Shtuppe (played by Ross Martin) as he ducks out of the duel with Leslie (Tony Curtis) when it becomes evident he's losing. He leaps to the open window sill in the high tower which overlooks the moat 50 or 60 feet below and throws his sword at Leslie.

Leslie: (parrying the sword away easily) "Running away Baron?"
Von Shtuppe: "A very wise Englishman once said He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day Farewell, Leslie. I have a boat waiting."

Then the Baron dives out the window and crashes through the middle of the rowboat waiting below, splintering it to kindling.

Still love that movie. A Classic.


Another great exit line:

"Here's a quarter. Go downtown and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you,madam."

Well, there are a few favorites of mine.

When WC Fields lay on his deathbed he (allegedly) heard a newsboy hawking papers out on the bitter old, snow-covers streets. "I think I'll leave all my money to the poo newsboys," he said, feebly. A moment later, he said "On second thought, fuck the newsboys."

and,

When someone famous (memory faileth) was about to be hanged he said :I pray you will assist me to the top of the ladder. As for the descent, I shall fend for myself."

and (as I'm told by a friend at the NTSB), the universal last words recorded by pilots who are about to crash are "Oh shit..."

Dick,

"...When someone famous (memory faileth) was about to be hanged he said :I pray you will assist me to the top of the ladder. As for the descent, I shall fend for myself."..."

That sounds like Sir Walter Raleigh, he was beheaded by order of James I (or I of England & VI of Scotland to be pedantic).

When reading Keats' Ode to a Nightingale in college, I was struck by the poem's power, but particularly by the closing lines.
The poet hears the call of the nightingale in a solitary woods, and the sound seems to draw his soul out of his body in an exquisite way that suggests a beauty in final release, in the act of dying amid such perfection. And the hint that dying might be only an awakening into a different reality.
These are the last lines..

"Adieu! adieu! thy plaintive anthem fades   
Past the near meadows, over the still stream,   
    Up the hill-side; and now 'tis buried deep   
          In the next valley-glades:   
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?   
    Fled is that music:—do I wake or sleep? "

I'm pretty sure I got this from Mudcat--don't know specifically who:

You may not know that vehicles sold in the US have "black boxes", similar to those in planes. The National Highway Safety Admininistration has been checking the black boxes in vehicles after accidents fatal to all the occupants. They've uncovered a fascinating pattern. In most states the last words spoken in the vehicle are usually: "Oh, f---".    But in Texas, Alabama, and West Virginia the last words are:   "Here, hold my beer and watch this."

I love it, LH! Even better, the "Farewell Mudcat" Threads where some whiner decides to announce his departure from the Forum because

a)"This no longer a forum about folk music, and I must gather my dignity and leave..aloha"
b)"I have been insulted for the last time...goodbye"
c) "My comments have been edited, removed, and I can no longer submit to the heavy hand of the Moderators...farewell"

Really, my least favorite kind of thread I must say, and I can imagine the "leaver" savoring all the calls to desist and forgive. Reminds me of the King who decided to hold his state funeral before his death, in order that he could hear all of the praise and adoration which would otherwise have been wasted.

Some of them even start another thread announcing their return so that the tender souls who begged them not to go in the first place can welcome them back with open arms.

There was a news story last year about an execution in North Caolina, or some such place. The condemned man was hoping for a reprieve from the Governor. About five minutes before the execution, he was informed that his request for a reprieve had been denied. His reply: "Well - you can tell Governor Smith he's lost my vote!"

(I'm not sure the governor's name was Smith, though ... )

I don't know whether anyone has yet posted the gem attributed to WC Fields (probably myth, but who knows with WC).

The story goes that as he was about to die--within minutes--he turned to Barrymore and said, "Lionel, I look back on the times I was rued to little kids and I'm sorry. The times I told stray dogs to get lost and when they didn't leav I kicked them. The times I was miserable to orphans and other people. Lionel, I'm sorry." Story goes that Fields then closed his eyes and seemed to expire. As Barryn\more was leaving the room, he heard a noise behind him. He turned, and Fields had raised himself to his elbows. He said, "Lione, on second thought, fuck 'em." THEN he died.
