... "This is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper." The last of humanity all die. Either by radiation poisoning or hopefully by the suicide pills issued by the government. Captain Towers sails away to ditch his nuclear sub while Moira watches him from a hilltop. The last scene shows a Salvation Army banner, the message now directed at the movie audience: "THERE'S STILL TIME BROTHER"
