So, how do you end it all?
Every attempt I make at a closing line sounds cheesy. Or anti-climactic. While browsing for inspiration, I’ve picked out this set as particularly noteworthy:
> “Out there. That-a-way.”
> “You okay, Jim? How do you feel?” “Young. I feel young.”
> “Jim. Your name is Jim.” “Yes.”
> “All right, Mr. Sulu. Let’s see what she’s got.”
> “Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream…’ ‘…merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream…”
> “Course heading, Captain?” “Second star to the right, …and straight on ’til morning.”
Yes, of course, these are the (original) Star Trek films. However, there are two things to note:
1) If you have no familiarity with the franchise, these lines are mostly meaningless.
2) Besides the cheesy maverick that is William Shatner, who on earth could pull them off?
In short, I still have no idea what the last line should be. But I’m amusing myself nonetheless.
