Added DiffLines:

* Quoted verbatim near the end of ''Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle'' along with the implication that Churchill was a founding Kingsman.


* In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' ParodyFic "The Killer Dame", the EMH disguises himself as Winston Churchill while in a WW2 holodeck program, and this quote becomes an OverlyLongGag.

* The pilot of ''Series/RedDwarf'' said "The End" at the beginning of the episode and "The Beginning" at the end of the episode. This is because it's the [[EverybodysDeadDave end of everyone on Red Dwarf]] (except for SoleSurvivor Lister) leads to the setup for the rest of the series.

-->"Now this is not the end. It is not even, the beginning of the end. It is not even the end of the beginning of the end of the end. But it is perhaps, the end of the middle of the bit that comes after the end. Or perhaps the start of the end of the beginning of the middle of the end..."

Added DiffLines:

* The British [=WW2=] propaganda movie ''The Way Ahead'' (1944) concludes with the soldiers advancing into the attack with the words THE BEGINNING. One assumes the producers wanted the audience to believe our heroes were [[AndTheAdventureContinues just getting started in defeating the Nazis]], as opposed to marching off to their [[EveryoneDies END]].

''Film/BeginningOfTheEnd''. When it really is the end, see TheEnd.


* Literally: At the end of the apocalyptic/time-travel sci-fi BMovie ''Film/{{Millennium}}'' (not related to the eponymous TV series), a solemn voice-over proclaims: ''"It is not the end! It is not the beginning of the end! It is the end of the beginning!"''

** Which interestingly, it's similar to the quote Firion says at the end of Videogame/FinalFantasyII

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', starting with the Third Doctor's final serial "Planet of the Spiders" most outgoing Doctors get a GrandFinale storyline. They usually face a threat greater than any they've previously come up against, often end up making a HeroicSacrifice, and always have a denouement that treats their "death" and regeneration into their next incarnation as this trope. The revival series gives them a FinalSpeech as well and takes the trouble to tie up ''some'' loose ends of their MythArc. (The exceptions are Six, Seven, Eight, and War: Six and Seven meet their demises at the ''start'' of stories that are really about the new guys, Eight's regeneration is depicted in a short prologue to "The Day of the Doctor" and reveals it to have been under far more bitter circumstances than usual, and the special case of the War Doctor means his regeneration is only briefly seen as just one part of "Day"'s much larger story.)
