The play, "All's Well That Ends Well" doesn't include the title as a specific quote, but in the final scene (Act V, Scene 3), the King states:  "All is well-ended."

Yes and no. It is the name of what I think of as one of his best comedies but it was probably a much used saying long before he used it.
