It wouldn't have been an episode of "The Late Show with David Letterman" without a Top Ten list, and it wouldn't have been a fitting goodbye for Dave if it weren't a star-studded affair with big laughs and surprise guests.
Fortunately, the final countdown from David Letterman's final appearance as a TV host delivered all the necessities.
Ten big celebs, including Chris Rock, Bill Murray, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peyton Manning, Jim Carrey, and a once-again-clothed Tina Fey, took the stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater to deliver some parting words to the retiring king of latenight in a "Top 10 Things You've Always Wanted to Say to Dave" roundup.
Although everyone brought the humor, big-time, it was still an emotional trip to number one (Bill Murray, informing his longtime friend that "I’ll never have the money I owe you.")
Additional pro tip: Watch Jerry Seinfeld's face during Julia Louis-Dreyfus's delivery for the best uncensored, unscripted expression of butthurt ever to grace the screen.
