    Won't you, please?

    Hello,
    I heard that on a TV show (The Simpsons) some minutes ago :
    I wanna live, Marge!
    Won't you let me live?
    Won't you, please?


    Wouldn't be it better to replace the 3rd sentence by this one:
    Will you, please?

    And could it be possible that there are 4 sentences, not 3?
    I wanna live, Marge!
    Won't you let me live?

    Won't you?
    Please!


    If you need more context, here you go:
    YouTube - live.avi (08 seconds).

    Cheers!

    Will you, please? No, the third sentence is fine as is.

    And could it be possible to have 4 sentences, not 3?
    I wanna live, Marge!
    Won't you let me live?

    Won't you?
    Please!

    It's possible, but there is no need to separate the third sentence into two parts.
    If you need more context, here you go:
