After more than seven years on the show, John Oliver made his final appearance on The Daily Show last night. As he moves on to his own well-earned new show on HBO, Jon Stewart celebrated him the only way they could: By showing a highlight reel of the most embarrassing things they ever made him do.

Actually, they eventually got around to showing some of his best clips too, but nothing could stop both men from getting a little emotional. (The waterworks start around 7:25.)
