I think one of the funniest things I ever saw was in Episode 41 where the woman saw the floating sex dolls and thinks it is the rapture. My roomie was so offended as I almost fell out of the chair from laughing so hard.
This show was incredible.

I loved that show too. That episode made me cry and it just made me cry again. Lame but true.

Oh man that always makes me cry when I watch it. Thanks for sharing it.

You gotta love a series that has a balls to end by killing off the entire cast.

There's 4 things that always intrigue me in this clip when I watch it:

-- At Keith & David's wedding, WTF is the hitchhiker doing there?!?! He's in the second row between Vanessa and Federico. There's obviously a message of forgiveness here... an untold story. Could I forgive this guy, the way David must have in order for him to be at the wedding?
I dunno...

-- At Claire's wedding to Ted, Notice that Keith & David's younger boy, Anthony, is all grown up... and his date to the wedding is a man!

-- When Brenda died, what *exactly* was she doing with her right hand? It always looks uncomfortably to me like she's diddling herself in front of her brother. Which, given their semi-incestuous relationship...

-- Claire died in 2085, at the age of 102. Can you fucking imagine how much the world will have changed by then? Oh, to be able to see out beyond those curtains...

Claire died in 2085, at the age of 102. Can you fucking imagine how much the world will have changed by then?

I'm trying to imagine how she felt, starting her life as the youngest, with the ready-made family, and living THAT long, having been without her oldest brother - whom she'd known forever to the point of his death - for 80 years.

I like how Keith shows up just before David dies. The ones you most miss, and all that ...

I lost track of the seasons somewhere in the second and I am just about to start netflixing all of them to catch up. Was seeing this a spoiler? Yes and no. This is show has to be the single-most personally impactful show I have ever seen. The clip absolutely made me cry, which does NOT happen easily. I watched it a second time, and again, I was reduced to a puddle. For all my most articulate moments, I struggle to describe the feelings this almost-ten-minute clip has summoned here. The only thing I can say is....

Claire at the end of the series reminds me of my Great Aunt Mary.

Mary's son was killed in 1955, at the age of 19, in a plane crash while returning home from Korea. Her husband died in 1967 of lupus; one of her brothers died the same year from alcoholism. Her daughter died of lupus at age 26, in 1970.

Mary died last year at age 95, having outlived her spouse, both of her children, both of her siblings, and everyone else in her family except for one brother's children--who cared so little for her they would not even contribute money to put her name on her grave--and me.

Like Claire, her home was decorated with photographs of the family she'd outlived by decades.

I've never ever been so moved by a TV show. This scene still haunts me. I think its perfection. Everything is tied up in a little package.

There's never been or ever will be a better show or better ending. Thanks.
