Like host Jon Stewart, "The Daily Show" correspondent Samantha Bee is also leaving the Comedy Central series, and her final episode aired Thursday night.

Stewart marked the occasion with a sweet speech praising Bee's talents, calling her a "delightful, incredibly funny person" and noting that her departure marked the "end of an era" for the show. Bee was "The Daily Show"'s longest-running correspondent, after joining the satirical series in 2003.

A clip reel of some of Bee's best moments from her time on "Daily" revealed just why she'll be missed so much, including her repeated visits to the Republican National Convention, her uncomfortable attempts to discuss race relations, and getting a penis pump stuck to her face. Bee made only a brief appearance herself during the episode, walking out to cheers from the audience, crying as she and Stewart shared a big hug.

Check out the clip below, and prepare for an emotional rollercoaster.
