Good night...

Cf. the mad Ophelia's departing words in Shakespeare's Hamlet:

OPHELIA I hope all will be well. We must be patient; but I cannot
choose but weep to think they would lay him i' th' cold ground.
My brother shall know of it; and so I thank you for your good
counsel. Come, my coach! Good night, ladies. Good night, sweet
ladies. Good night, good night.
(Hamlet 4.5.72).

Ophelia, too, met "death by water." (NA)
