It was unclear what would happen to the beloved blowhard pundit Stephen Colbert on the final episode of "The Colbert Report." Grimmy the grim reaper, who was the scheduled guest, loomed ominously.

Luckily in the end, Stephen Colbert cheated death, and (spoiler) killed Grimmy with his trusted gun named sweetness. Following an epic musical extravaganza, Colbert, Unicorn Abraham Lincoln and Alex Trebek rode off into the night.

What followed Colbert's ride to eternity was an amazing outtake from"The Daily Show"/"The Colbert Report" history. It is emblematic of the partnership between Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, and the incredible hour of comedy the two of them created. Watch below:
