Chris Paul: So long, farewell, you’ve won the late night race. But I don’t care — the Clips are in first place!

Sheryl Crow: So long, farewell, I give a little wave, but not for Jay — I want to get on Dave.

Jim Parsons: So long, farewell, we’ve watched you when we’re weary. Your great success is called The Big Chin Theory.

Carol Burnett: So long, farewell, I’m here, so what the hell? For your last show, I’ll do the Tarzan yell.

Oprah: So long, farewell, you really raised the bar. If you were me, you’d buy them all a car.

All: The time has come to stop the late night talking. Into the sunset now we’ll see Jay walking… Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Mark Walhberg and President Barack Obama also popped up during the final show with special messages. Garth Brooks closed the show with Friends in Low Places.

For his part, Jay concluded with a nod to his predecessor: “It’s fun to be the old guy and see where the next generation takes this great institution. I’m so glad I got to be a part of it, but it really is time to go and hand it to the next guy. And, in conclusion, I want to quote Johnny Carson: ‘I bid you all a heartfelt good night.'”
