** During his appearance on the show in September 2011, AlGore mentioned Colbert's "character." Holding back laughter, Colbert responded: "My character? [[ObfuscatingStupidity What the hell are you talking about]], sir? ... Well, 'Al Gore', thank you so much for joining us." Later when he signed off, Colbert said, air quotes included, "For ''The Colbert Report,'' [[BrickJoke I'm 'Stephen Colbert.']] "

* GrandFinale: As expected, it was suitably impressive, with Colbert first [[spoiler: shooting Grimmy during the last-ever 'Cheating Death with Stephen Colbert' segment, becoming immortal]], then after a commercial break, he begins [[spoiler: to sing Vera Lynn's WWII standard "We'll Meet Again". The camera then pans to both JonStewart and RandyNewman (on piano) joining him. Then, over 150 former guests begin to gradually come out on stage to join him, along with several pre-taped sequences including the show's crew, Tek Jansen, astronaut Scott Kelly on the ISS, troops in Afghanistan and others singing as well.]] Once the stage clears and the studio is empty, we find Colbert [[spoiler: on the Colbert studio's roof, where he joins Abraham Lincoln, Santa Claus, and AlexTrebek in Santa's sleigh to live in eternity.]] Before he [[spoiler: rides away, he breaks character briefly, to thank the guests & crew that have been on the show over the last nine years.]] He then throws the show [[spoiler: back to Stewart, who wraps the show (inferring slyly it's been one big Daily Show segment) up as a 'great Report',]] before showing a [[spoiler: Moment Of Zen of Stewart & Colbert breaking character during a show hand-off from 2010.]]

Also, for having Green and White in the same picture.
