    To really be able to answer, we'd need to know what each participant's previous sentence was. As it stands it's hard to discern your actual intent. – gone fishin' again. Jun 24 '15 at 8:29

Some well-used examples:

  • You are my one and only.
  • For your eyes only.

It also works well where emphasis is required - "The equipment is for the use of club members only" or, any variation on members/staff/residents etc

P1. No, XYZ is only a great product. No, XYZ is a great product only.

P2. I was saying only that. I was saying that only.

P3. The club is only for members. The club is for members only.

Yes,you can use the word only at the end of a sentence to give extra emphasis to the word or word phrase that it applies to.
