Famous Last Words (or Lines)

Long ago, I shared with you my discovery of a set of great first lines from novels. I recently visited the online source of that list (the American Book Review site), and was thrilled to find a counterpart: "100 Best Last Lines from Novels." (Scroll down the home page to locate it.)

Anyone have any favorite "last lines" to add?

I just taught Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron, which Hazel ends by repeating, "I could tell that one was a doozy."
