RARA-AVIS: Best Last Lines....

Just read Horace McCoy's NO POCKETS IN A SHROUD and loved it. One of the things I liked best about it was its closing line: "Then the top of his head flew off, and he fell face downwards across the garbage can, trying to get his fingers up to hold his nose."

It's my current favorite closing line. Whatever hard-boiled is, that line is it. What are some other great closing lines?
