    Moby Dick by Herman Melville

    Ishmael: Call me Ishmael.

    Captain Ahab: Crew, we will seek the white whale and kill it, because I am insane.

    Crew: Alas, your destructive obsession will be our undoing.

    (They almost find the white whale. Then they almost find the white whale. Then they find it.)

    Captain Ahab: I stab at thee. I stab at thee.

    (Everybody dies except Ishmael, although this is no surprise because it was foreshadowed CONTINUALLY from the BEGINNING.)

     

    THE END
