Favorite Famous Last Words
The words and context.

We all get the same amount of ice. The rich get it in the summer. The poor get it in the winter.
Who: Bat Masterson

Ow, fuck!
Who: Roald Dahl, Welsh novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot.

One last drink, please.
Who: Jack Daniel, an American distiller and businessman, the founder of the Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey distillery.

Van Halen!
Who: Darrell Abbott A.K.A Dimebag Darrel, former guitarist of Pantera and Damageplan.

Kurt Russell.
Who: Walt Disney
Note: Scrawled on a piece of paper. To this day, nobody knows what he meant by it, not even Kurt Russell, who was 15 at the time.

It's okay! Gun's not loaded… see?
Who: Johnny Ace, 1950s rhythm and blues singer.
Note: Ace was playing Russian roulette (or something similar; exact accounts vary) with his revolver on Christmas Day 1954, during a backstage break in his concert that day. Someone told him "Be careful with that thing..." and he replied "It's okay! Gun's not loaded... see?" Contrary to Ace's assertion, there was a bullet in the chamber, which, when he pulled the trigger with the barrel of the gun to his face, killed him instantly.

This is the fish of my dreams.
Who: Dan Dodds
Note: Dodds had caught a 20-lb. salmon, the biggest fish of his life. He turned to a stranger, said this quote, then fell into the river and died of a heart attack. The salmon was barbecued and eaten at his wake.

Goddamn the whole fucking world and everyone in it except you, Carlotta.
Who: W.C. Fields
Note: "Carlotta" was Carlotta Monti, actress and Fields' mistress.

If you don't like it, you can fuck off!
Who: Keith Moon, drummer for the British rock group The Who.

Yes, a bullet-proof vest.
Who: James W. Rodgers
Note: Asked if he has any last requests before facing a firing squad.

Note: Spoken to a police officer who had asked who shot him (Shakur).

RE: Favorite Famous Last Words
According to Shakespeare anyway:

Julius Ceasar...."Et tu, Brute? Then fall Caesar!”

Hamlet...."the rest is silence"

Romeo...."Thus with a kiss I die."

Cleopatra....."What should I stay"

King Richard III "A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!"

Polonius (from Hamlet) "Behind O, I am slain!"

________________

Abraham Lincoln....“She won’t think anything about it.”

John Kennedy...."No, you certainly can't."

________________

My favorite dying words have been attributed to several actors from the 40's and 50's but it looks like Edmund Gwenn, who played Santa Claus in the Miracle on 34th Street movie, might be the originator of these last dying lines.

"Dying is easy. Comedy it hard."

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Union General John Sedgwick was killed by a sharpshooter at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House on May 9, 1864, making him and Major General John F. Reynolds (July 1, 1863, Gettysburg) the highest-ranking United States soldiers to be killed in the Civil War. He is well remembered for his ironic last words: "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance." (Wikipedia) Consider

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

Cool Civil War stuff. I think Reynolds said something before he was shot to the effect of (when an orderly asked him to get down from his horse as he was a conspicuous target) "There are times when the life of a major general don't matter." Trying to inspire his men. Then shot in the leg, bled out.
