I found this article about the last words famous people said before they died. Some of them are certainly memorable, as well as humorous...
Famous Last Words

Jimi Hendrix - "The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye, until we meet again."

Lou Costello - "That was the best ice-cream soda I ever tasted."

Ian Fleming - "I am sorry to trouble you chaps. I don't know how you get along so fast with the traffic on the roads these days."

Joan Crawford - "Don't you dare ask God to help me."

Humphrey Bogart - "I never should have switched from scotch to martinis."

Ludwig Van Beethoven - "Applaud, my friends, the comedy is over."

Errol Flynn - "I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it."

More at the link, along with some narration and description.

The link would only show me Steve Jobs.

One aspect of "famous last words" is that there is sometimes a discrepancy between the "official", bland report, and a more informal version.
E.g., I believe the "official" last words of King George V were "How goes the empire?"
The popular version is that the Queen tried to encourage him by telling him he would soon be well enough for a nice stay at Bognor (a seaside resort which he normally favoured). He retorted "Bugger Bognor", and then expired.
Similarly, the last words of Pitt the Younger were first reported as "How I love my country!" The more popular version has amended this to "I think I could eat one of Bellamy's meat pies".

There's an arrow to the right hand side of Steve's picture that takes you to the next one. If it isn't there, you may have a browser issue. It shows up in all of my browsers.

Love the quotes everyone has added so far. Keepem coming! lol.

I'm not dead or dying.
When I do pass,
"See you later" will be sufficient.
