LastWords, but before InstantSedation rather than dying. Sometimes they possess a bit of the impact of actual LastWords because the fainting character is in bad shape and using the last strength they have to utter them or because their general situation is bad and they don't know if they will wake up again.

If they don't have any meaning, it's NonSequiturThud.

The last words from the person ''doing'' the drugging are WhyCantYouSayGoodNight.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': At one point in the Skypiea arc, Sanji [[ShockAndAwe gets electrocuted]] by the ArcVillain [[AGodAmI Enel]]. Right before he faints, he tells him two things: "[[SmokingIsCool Thanks for lighting my cigarette]]" and to "[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome get ready to cry]]."
* In one episode of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', a doctor is trying to give an aggressive Pokemon being treated a shot of sedative. Because of how much the Pokemon is flailing, he accidentally sticks himself with the needle. He has just enough time to tell Ash, Misty, and Brock how long it's going to put him out for, before staggering off to pass out.
* After being poisoned and wounded Zen of ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' manages to order almost everyone else still clinging to consciousness in the room to get medical attention before passing out himself showing just how much he values the country's soldiers and his personal aides.

* In the original ''Film/TheNakedGun'', the Police Squad lab tech is demonstrating a tranquilizer dart-shooting watch to Frank Drebin (it's that kind of movie). When he shoots Frank's squadmate, Ed, the man puts his hand to his neck (where the dart landed). Then, as he's passing out, he says:
-->"Ted... ''why?''"
* ''Film/MysteryMen'': Right after Captain Amazing asks what he just picked up is if not evidence, it shoots out a cloud of pink smoke:
-->'''Casanova Frankenstein:''' [[WhyCantYouSayGoodNight "It's a chloroform-deploying portable enticement snare."]]\\
'''Captain Amazing:''' "... - Ah, dang!"
* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. HAL is effectively dead for the remainder of the movie, but is only shut down, as he's a computer. It's one of the most famous moments in film
-->'''HAL''': "Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do..."
* Near the beginning of ''Film/XXx'', Xander is shot with a tranquilizer dart.
-->'''Xander:''' (''confused'') It was only a Corvette! *Thump*
** This may come across as a NonSequiturThud, but it's not. Not ten minutes earlier in the movie, he had stolen a car (as part of a TakeThat to a Jack Thompson {{expy}}). The car in question was a Corvette. Which led to the quote.
* In the movie ''Film/DeathBecomesHer'', Bruce Willis's character gets smashed over the head with a large vase. He irritably turns to his attacker and asks "What?" before falling unconscious (and almost falling down a flight of stairs.)
* In ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'', Dark Helmet suffers this due to his own incompetent leadership; when he orders Colonel Sandurz to hit the emergency brake to get ''Spaceball One'' out of LudicrousSpeed, he continues forward into a console. After they pick him back up, somewhat battered, he suggests everyone take a five-minute break before he collapses. Meanwhile, Lone Starr and Barf are stuck on a desert planet. As Barf collapses, he goes, "Oh waiter...{{check please}}! *Thud*" in a NonSequiturThud. Lone Starr soon follows with a straighter example: "Must go on…must go on…who am I kidding? *Thud*" And a Spaceball guarding the self-destruct mechanism instructs Lone Starr how to do a proper Vulcan neck pinch, and when he does, "Like *this*?" The guard replies, "Yeah! *Thud*"
* In ''Film/TrueLies'', when Aziz's men capture the Taskers, Helen is tranq'd with a shot to the neck. "That ''hurt,'' you ba-" *thud*
* From ''Film/{{Thor}}'', when the title character wakes up in a hospital and starts fighting back the staff.
--> '''Thor:''' [[LargeHam YOU ARE NO MATCH FOR THE MIGHTY-]] [injection]
* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'': Jareth orders Hoggle to give Sarah a drugged peach; after she bites into it, she realizes something is wrong, and breathes: "Hoggle, what've you done?"

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In the episode "Chains" from the second series of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'':
-->'''Kidnapper:''' Excuse me, Meister...\\
'''Blackadder:''' Yes? What is it?\\
''Kidnapper hits him on the head with a large stick''\\
'''Blackadder:''' I said, "What is it?", not "Hit me hard on the head with a-" ''*thud*''
* Wilson in ''Series/{{House}}'': "You drugged me... *thud*"
** Similarily, House manages to mutter, "Who spiked my..." before falling to the ground.
* Mal and Inara in the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Our Mrs. Reynolds" both get curse words as [[spoiler:Saffron's]] knockout drug takes effect.
** Almost. Neither of them quite manage to finish cursing, but they both say more or less the same thing: Mal gets "Son of a--" and Inara, "You stupid son of a--!"
** In "Objects in Space", Simon is walking Zoe through removing a bullet from his leg (without painkillers, as he needs to remain alert). After she gets the bullet out, he says "Okay, I think I'm gonna pass out now..."
* From the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "I, Mudd:"
-->'''Mudd''': What can I do?
-->'''Kirk''': Nothing, Harry. Just.. go to sleep.
-->'''Mudd''': What do you mean? ''[Dr. [=McCoy=] produces a hypo]'' Oh, now, now wait a minute, gentlemen. No, what I, I.. ''[gets injected]'' had in mind was actually more in the line of a few words of sage counsel, as it were. Advice..
-->'''Kirk:''' Oh, Harry. I do believe you're putting on weight.
** From the episode "The Empath", after Dr. [=McCoy=] gives Spock a shot so that he can [[MoreExpendableThanYou sacrifice himself in Spock's place]]:
-->'''Spock''': Your action is highly unethical. My decision... stands. [falls unconscious]
-->'''[=McCoy=]''': Not this time, Spock.
* Vedek Fala's "Faith... faith" as his suicide pill takes effect in the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Covenant".
* In one episode of ''Series/HillStreetBlues'', [[ButtMonkey Lt. Hunter]] receives a gift in the mail from an admirer which he thinks is some sort of flute. One of the other officers in the precinct tries blowing into it. There is a pfft, and a feathered dart is sticking out of Hunter's chest.
-->'''Hunter:''' Oh. It's a blowgun. [Thud. Roll opening credits.]
* Casey in the ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' episode ''Chuck vs The Dream Job'' is shot twice with tranquilizer darts and has a third dart stabbed into his neck by [[spoiler:Chuck]].
-->'''Casey''' (to [[spoiler:Chuck]]): "I'm gonna kill you when I wake up."
* In one episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', Henry grabs a hypodermic syringe from a combative patient in the OR and gets a handful of the needle. He manages to count down to ninety-eight before collapsing. Counting backwards from one hundred is a common suggestion from surgeons to their patients to track when the patient succumbs to the anesthetic.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[spoiler:Kratos's]] last words before he faints due to [[spoiler:Yuan's]] lightning attack in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' are "Are you all right?...Good." This, of course, is spoken to the intended target of the attack he blocked, [[spoiler:Lloyd, his son]].
* In VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney after [[spoiler:Diana injects Agent 47 with a fake death serum/sedative to fake his death]], Mr. 47 attempts to fight back but winds up on the ground muttering "We can't...(the rest is inaudible)" before finally passing out.
* Twice in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4, the first time when Raiden is badly wounded after a fight with Vamp and manages to say "Go meet... Big Mama" before finally succumbing to his wounds. The second time is again with Raiden after he briefly wakes up, when he tells Snake and the others that a man in eastern Europe named Dr. Madnar, [[spoiler:the man who saved his life the first time]], can heal him before once again falling unconscious.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Dave in ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'': "I will use the last of my consciousness to state that this is not cola, this is in fact plain and simple ''paint thinner''."
* Although death is not impending, [[ this bit]] from ''Webcomic/CrimsonDark'' counts:
--> '''Daniel''' : Ok... Whisper, I think I'm about to pass out. [[HeartwarmingMoments Please don't take it personally]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks'', Clint manages to break free, grab Dr. Paradigm, and gasp out "What have you...", before apparently dying from the [[PlayingWithSyringes gene-slamming]]. His brothers [[NightmareFuel just scream in pain and seemingly die]] before they can say anything.
* ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'': Waspinator captures a protohuman girl and is trying to carry her back to base. Unfortunately, said protohuman got some pointers from Cheetor and puts them to use, hacking away at his joints so that by the time she's finally delivered to Megatron, he barely manages, "''Waspinator deliver fleshy-bot safe and sound...''" before he falls all to pieces ''[[TheChewToy again]]''.
