Divide four ways by media?[edit]

This list is much too big - how about we divide it four ways between last words in print media, in films, in TV shows, and in video games? BD2412 T 04:46, 14 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ahem, if I hear no objection in the next day or so, I'm going to split this article up according to my proposal above. BD2412 T 05:09, 22 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Good idea, go for it.--Joseph Q Publique 04:45, 23 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
One suggestion, though - perhaps, owing to the similarity in medium, perhaps instead of articles for films AND television we could have one for both?--Joseph Q Publique 04:46, 23 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Look at it this way: think of all the significant characters that have had last words in films; think of all the significant characters that have had last words in TV shows. Either list, if filled out, would still be enormous. BD2412 T 13:56, 23 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oppose merging this back into Fictional last words. I have been busily dividing the ridiculously oversized Fictional last words entry from a uselessly disorganized 270kb monstrosity to a series of still-enormous but at least manageable pieces - Fictional last words in literature, Fictional last words in television, Fictional last words in webcomics, etc. The reason I broke out Star Wars, Batman, and James Bond media for separate "last words" entries is that each is itself a sizeable chunk, and each reports last words in varying media - in movies, books, comics, video games, etc. Please DO NOT simply merge these back into Fictional last words - if you are intent on merging them somewhere, please divide the materials therein between the appropriate types of media for which "Fictional last words" entries have been established.

I'm not sure this page meets the notability requirement. In all honesty, I don't think this page, as it exists, has any place in Wikipedia. 17:59, 14 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"General" Last Words?[edit]

Those have got to go. They aren't 'quotes' by anybody, their inclusion is senseless.-- 20:05, 30 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Space Oddity[edit]

Please do not re-add Space Oddity. Major Tom appears in two subsequent works by Bowie, "Ashes to Ashes" and "Hallo Spaceboy". He is not dead.

That is a rather subjective call. Someone knowing only of Space Oddity, by far the most popular of the three, would not have that impression. It seems to me that it is more informative to include it and then explain why it might not be considered to contain "last words". Cheers! BD2412 T 15:25, 26 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
