How well do you remember the series finale of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'?

Get ready to break out the tissues.

In the world of television, few shows get a proper goodbye. The series finale is something a show achieves once it's been on the air long enough, and with enough advanced notice to prepare for the end.

The series finale is also the episode most writers and producers have trouble cracking: How do they make the audience happy? That's the task the people behind The Mary Tyler Moore Show were assigned in the spring of 1977.

As a result, they produced the episode "The Last Show," which has gone on to become the gold standard for series finales. It had laughs, it had tears, but most of all it had heart.
