Yeah I just got through watching JFK and it was just so mind boggling.

According the the Connellys, JFK's last words were something along the lines of "You can say that again" or "You're right about that" (I don't remember exactly).
It was an answer to Mrs Connelly (the Texas Governor's wife, riding in the middle-left seat) who'd turned and said "You can't say Dallas doesn't love you!"

The first shot that hit JFK went through his spine and throat. He couldn't say anything after he'd been hit. (Sorry to get all morbid and whatnot..)
