While some movie characters pass away without any fanfare, other fictional characters' last words leave a lasting impression on our psyche. In particular, the last words that manage to elicit a small chuckle are forever seared in our brains. Even in their final moments, these characters still manage to pull out one last funny line, simply to ensure that they'll be remembered.
Of course, last words in real life are rarely as catchy. But if we could manage to deliver a final line like Dr. Schultz in Django Unchained or Jasper Palmer in Children of Men, we'd certainly go down in history, much like these film personalities.
Take a look below at some of the funniest last words in movie history and vote up the final lines that still make you chuckle.
