And now, "toolish" last lines of Shakespeare

So I just did famous last words.  It's only appropriate (I wonder if this person saw the same post I did?) then to look at cases where the last words of a figure weren't exactly something to write home about.  Last lines that, in the author's opinion, end up making the character sound like a tool.

I think he cheaps out with the Pyramus reference, since that wasn't a real character death.  But I agree with Paris, he was a bit flowery for me, even when dying.

Hah. I do agree that I cheaped out with Pyramus. I hadn't read your article until I saw that you linked this post.

Glad you agree about Paris.
