    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!

    Wouldn't be it better to replace the 3rd sentence by this one:
    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.
