Last Lines of the Whedonverse Dead

When Twitterer @monkeyonthelam issued the following tweet: "I wish there was a comprehensive list of the last line said by every dead Whedonverse character. I love lists, but that would be a lot of work"...we took that as a personal challenge. At least to come up with 25 of 'em. Well, this gets a bit lengthy so let's get to it.

...but before we do, we'd like to point out that during our research we realized there are many a great characters that do not really get a last line. The final thing they say may be a scene or 2 before the actual death or some-such. This includes: Anya, Buffy (the 1st time), Kendra (she's hypnotized), Jenny Calendar, Larry, Jonathan, Joyce, etc. Since they didn't get the glory of a last lick, why not make one up for them and leave it in the comments?

Without further ado, Buffyfest presents: Last Lines of the Dead.

Danners said...

You can really tell a lot about a character from their last words.

Or um, for some of these cases, I guess not so much.

Still really interesting, though! :D

Andre said...

Great list...Fred and Wes's last words still make me teary-eyed.

I was going to point of Faith, but then remembered that she didn't actually die. Silly me.

Oh, but what about Jonathan?? I know he gets a last line, because he had some speech about how he wanted to know how the people he knew in highschool were doing...I can't remember the quote, but he deserves a mention!

And you should throw a few random demons in there.
