A second variety of Title Drop occurs when the title of a work is used as the last line spoken. Here, it's not nearly as big and flashy and important as the first variety, but it still explains things to the audience a bit more. You can probably find these mainly in thriller works, where it makes you sit up and think (and adds a bit of drama to the ending). It's also common in plays that were written during the Victorian era.

Note: If a series is named after a [[CharacterTitle central character]], [[ThePlace setting]], group, etc., it does not count as a Title Drop, unless they are usually called by another name. Hence, ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''Series/TheWestWing'', ''Series/{{House}}'', and things like that don't qualify. Often, the Title Drop will finally explain why the episode/book/etc is called that way to begin with. If this explanation comes by ''[[ShowDontTell showing]]'' [[ShowDontTell instead of by]] ''[[ShowDontTell telling]]'' (i.e. it is not actually spoken aloud by any of the characters), then it's TheNamesake.
