[<< wikiquote] Fictional last words in literature
The following is a list of last words attributed to various fictional characters in literature. Characters are listed according to source (i.e. the originating book), then the name of character the quote is attributed to (in case of more than one quote per source). Where quotes come from a series of texts, they are organised in the order of the texts they appeared in (for example, quotes from the first book in the Harry Potter series appear before quotes from the second book, and so on). Where possible, for the purposes of clarification, further explanatory notes have been presented. Additionally, if a character's final words consist of a dialogue with the other characters, the other character's speech may be included for contextual purposes; for example, if one character asks a question that the one who is about to die answers.
Some characters may have more than one "death," in instances such as being resurrected, or existing temporarily as an undead being. In some of those instances, their last words from each "death" may be added if they are significant. Additionally, significant last words from deaths that are merely assumed to have happened or are non-canon are included. Additionally, in instances where there are multiple outcomes, or in media with alternate timelines, the character's last words will be featured.
Note: for last words appearing in the works of William Shakespeare, see Last words in Shakespeare.

Notes: Although these are commonly thought to be the characters last thoughts, the actual source is the narrator guessing what the last thoughts of the condemned man might be.Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf. Get out as early as you can, and don't have any kids yourself.

Notes: Character, Lord General of the Blood of the Fold - an anti-magic organization - had just discovered he had the Gift of Magic, suppressed by his sister's shroud of "pretties", which had just been thrown in a fire.

Source: And Then There Were None
Notes: Leslie was Macarthur's wife, who had an affair with one of Macarthur's soldiers during World War One. After discovering the affair, Macarthur sent the young man on a suicide mission, knowing full well he would not return. The elderly general was haunted for years before being killed by way of a blow to the base of his head.No more Indian tricks tonight. I've seen to that...
Who: Thomas Rogers
Source: And Then There Were None
Notes: Rogers served as the butler of the house on Indian Island. He became suspicious of the fact that one of the ceramic "ten little Indians" on the kitchen table would disappear every time a guest on the island died. He proceeded to lock the dining room door before going to bed one night; the next morning, his head was split open with an axe while he chopped firewood.It's like a bee-a bumblebee.
Who: Emily Brent
Source: And Then There Were None
Notes: Brent, a strictly religious woman, was overcome by a spell of giddiness in the kitchen on the second morning at the island. She heard a buzzing sound in her ears, and noticed a bumblebee crawling on the windowsill.

Who: Vera Claythorne
Source: And Then There Were None
Notes: Claythorne managed to survive as the "last little Indian" on the island. In a delusional state, she walked up to her room and discovered a noose hanging from the ceiling, in respect to the last line of the poem: "He went and hanged himself and then there were none." Her last words were a recollection of her own crime, in which she told her nursery charge to swim to a far-off rock, knowing he would drown.And they will find ten dead bodies and an unsolved problem on Indian Island. Signed, Lawrence Wargrave.
Who: Justice Lawrence Wargrave
Source: And Then There Were None
Notes: Wargrave was the true mastermind behind the murders on Indian Island. He wrote his confession-the last line of which is the above quote-and placed it in a bottle, throwing it to the sea. He then committed suicide, finishing his "perfect crime."Cher ami... (Dear friend...)
Forgive me... forgive...
Who: Hercule Poirot
Source: Curtain: Poirot's Last Case
Notes: In both the novel and the Poirot TV adaptation, after main character has solved the crime by killing the manipulative mastermind, Stephen Norton, he makes a final atonement for the deed by keeping his amyl nitrite heart medicine out of reach so that he can have a calm, dignified end.  As he lies in bed dying of angina, he speaks to his friend, Arthur Hastings, for one last time before telling him to go downstairs for breakfast and to let him rest.  As Hastings leaves, character whispers this first line as his final words.  The TV adaptation adds that during his last minutes alone, he makes a final prayer to God in this second line, asking him for forgiveness and reaching out for the rosary.  In the next few scenes, as in the novel, Hastings returns to the room to find character lying in his bed, slumped and lifeless, with his eyes closed as in eternal sleep.

Who: Liet-Kynes
Source: Dune
Notes: Character notices that he is standing above a bubble of carbon dioxide that will eventually become a "blow" and engulf him. He thinks that is something that only desert creatures can sense, and while these are his last thoughts, they are a way of "speaking" to his dead father. He dies when he is swallowed by the blow.I’ve got her now, Majesty! Shall I dispatch her now-eeeeeeeeeeh! [Alia: I’m sorry, Grandfather. You’ve met the Atreides gom jabbar] You- you
Who: Baron Vladimir Harkonnen
Source: Dune
Notes: Character is speaking to the Emperor about Paul’s younger sister, Alia. However, she stabs him with a poisonous gom jabbar, killing him almost instantly.See, Majesty? See your traitor’s needle? Do you think that I who've given my life to the service of the Atreides would give them less now?
Who: Thufir Hawat
Source: Dune
Notes: Character has been commanded to kill Paul, but says the first sentence to the Emperor before committing suicide by stabbing himself with an extremely poisonous gom jabbar, which he had apparently been ordered to use on Paul.You see it here on my hip?

Siona.
Who: Duncan Idaho
Source: Various books in the Dune Series
Notes: Character is killed by the Harkonnen in Dune after saying the first line; he volunteers to stand guard after Jessica says that she trusts his protection, and is killed when the Harkonnen close in. However, he is resurrected as a ghola, a clone with all the past self’s memories. That ghola is killed in Children of Dune after provoking Stilgar, and says the second line after he is fatally stabbed, but is later resurrected. A ghola says the third line in God Emperor of Dune when he is dying of injuries after being crushed by Leto II during an assassination attempt. The line is a reference to Siona Atreides; Leto briefly ponders, but soon dismisses, the notion that the two are working together. The next ghola becomes an important character in God Emperor of Dune, and dies after the book ends. The current ghola is alive as of the end of Chapterhouse: Dune.One blasphemy remains! Blasphemy! And the name of that blasphemy is Alia!
Who: Paul "Muad’Dib" Atreides

Notes: Character, a human with a sandworm body, is dying after falling into the Idaho River as a result of a group of assassins destroying the bridge he is on, and gives instructions to Duncan Idaho and Siona before saying this as he hears voices. However, his "dream" remains in Heretics of Dune.Life and movement are 'out there' with the people of the Scattering who resist the whores. Whatever we do, we must make that resistance stronger.
I have won!
Who: Taraza
Source: Heretics of Dune
Notes: First line is spoken to Sheeana some time before her death. Second line is character's final thoughts, just before she passes on her Other Memories to her subordinate Odrade before dying of wounds from the Honored Matre attacks.

Notes: Character, a prisoner of the Great Honored Matre, had offended her captor by, in her estimation, being "too clever" and for calling her by her first name, Dama.

Note: God is debating with Man on the necessity of Faith in his own existence, and Man uses the Babel Fish as an excuse to prove he does, therefore negating the need for Faith and thus negating God's existence. He then "promptly vanishes in a puff of logic".Oh, that was easy.

In August of 1923 a woman in New York got worried because her sister hadn't written her for two months.
