Parting words, coming after [[SlippingAMickey drugging someone]] but before [[InstantSedation the victim hits the ground]]. May take the form of a PreemptiveApology. A kind of PreMortemOneLiner without the actual, y'know, death. The last words from the guy they ''drugged'' are PartingFromConsciousnessWords.

Trope name comes from Tony Basil's "[[SlippingAMickey Mickey]]".
