I think I first encountered this word in Star Wars. See? Pop culture increases your word-power! Funnily enough, the Streets of San Francisco TV series which I liked (Karl Malden, great actor) used to do this whole Prolog, ACT IV, Epilog thing. A tad pretentious but it was a good series. Watching it one night with mum and dad I asked,

Dad chuckled and told me it was pronounced epilog. I felt silly « again.

Reminds me of Zoolander and his graveside eu-googlie (eulogy)!

Still struggling with that word though! Here's another example if you're feeling nostalgic yearnings for the earlier part of the book:
