"Premature Endings", Way to Die #1000, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Sor-Dead Affair", which aired along with "Locked and Low Dead" as the one-hour season finale on February 29, 2012.

Plot

Most of Sharon Levy Memorial Hospital's patients were dying of different causes ranging from germs, toxins, injury, illness, catastrophe, calamity, and their own stupidity. Examples shown are a drunk driver having a steering wheel in his intestines, a pervert dying from a broken soda bottle lodged up his butt, a drunk man who sliced his own leg off by his table saw, a guy that lit up a match when there was a gas leak, another who have a hard white stick on his neck, and a woman who fell of a ladder while holding a knife.

There was one patient, however, that stood out from the rest; he is dying peacefully from old age. He is at the end of a long and healthy life, having been faithful to his friends and family.

His daughter, who was oblivious to the other patients, was the only person to see him go, and while she's sad to see him pass on, she's glad to know that he's going to a much better place. 

"His daughter is understandably sad... but she also knows it's his time to go."

List of deaths shown

Before meeting with the patient dying peacefully

"1000 Ways to Die has a lot of fun mocking all the dumbasses who manage to die...in the most idiotic of circumstances. But ideally, that's not how we wanna go, is it?"

After meeting with the patient dying peacefully

"In the end, the choice is yours. You can be a total moron...die a victim of your own stupidity, and wind up on our show...or live a long and sensible life...and go home and watch it. All this time, 1000 Ways to Die has been an instructional manual...for how to live."

Trivia

  • This Way to Die reaches the bottom of the list at #1000.
  • This death has no interviewees, as dying of old age is one of the most common ways to die in real life. In many developed countries, almost everyone who dies does so due to complications related to age.
  • Like Ichiboned, this death is sometimes considered one of the most heartwarming, as all the people involved died from a normal situation that could happen to anyone, and the people involved had not done anything morally wrong or stupid beforehand.
  • This is one of the few deaths along with Ichiboned, Frightmare, Crappy Ending, Pissed Off and Coming & Going in where the victim is actually innocent of doing anything wrong.
  • As the 1000th and final Way to Die, it reflects on some of the previous deaths shown throughout the series.
  • The main deceased character in this death is the only one to not have died from any injuries, catastrophes, germs, toxins, or even illnesses.
  • This is the second death from 2011 featured in this series, but "Apocalypse Harley" is still the youngest, 34 days away.
  • This Way to Die was supposed to be the series finale, but 1000 Ways to Die was renewed for another season. It was instead featured in the finale of Season 5.
  • For some reason, in the Spanish dub of the series, Sharon Levy Memorial Hospital is depicted to have been located in London, England (the setting for Ex-Squeezed), but it's doubtful that this is true.
  • The intro to this death is in motion.
  • Despite being #1000, it is not the final death in the series, because, as mentioned earlier, the series was renewed. The final death in the series is Phlegm Phatale.
  • For those deaths that appeared before and after the patient dying peacefully, they are all achieve footage.
  • The pervert who would die from a broken soda bottle that lodged up his butt with his mouth taped may inspire a similar death that aired 2 episodes later.
