Daily Show host Jon Stewart bid adieu to John Oliver on the show Thursday, which included a DS career retrospective and tears.

“Daily Show” host Stewart wrote a royal family comedy bit that was never meant to actually play out. Stewart let Oliver go on a bit until Oliver said, “Are we not doing the bit?”

“No, of course we’re not doing the bit,” Stewart said. “There’s only one British Royal here that I care about tonight, and his name is Prince John Oliver.”

Oliver was full on Niagara Falls with the waterworks. Hugs were shared between the two late night comics, and a well-deserved standing ovation was given by both host and audience.
