  • An amazing finale to a funny series

    I loved this episode. In my opinion, it was the best possible way to wrap the series up.



    I loved how they portrayed Jack Gallo as not wanting to deal with saying goodbye at first. That might make him seem cold-hearted to some, but think about it - who really wants to face that they're saying goodbye to someone or something they care about? I thought this portryal was very realistically done for a guy with a personality like Jack's.



    The goodbye speech in Jack's office - man, that was so well-done. It makes me tear up every time I see it. Whoever wrote that scene deserves an award - it was so moving, so touching, and included a perfect blend of laughter, tears and inspiration.



    It remains one of my all-time favorites of "Just Shoot Me."moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The title of this episode is a play on the pilot episode, "Back Issues". The closing music is also the same music played during the closing moments of the pilot when Maya and Jack are staring at baby Hannah in the hospital.

    • For the first and only time, we see what is behind Finch's desk: a trap door leading into Jack's cabinet. A few seasons earlier, when Finch's father visited, Jack escaped his office through a secret door--but Finch didn't know where it was. Now, Finch appears to have always known where it was.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Elliot and Maya lay on a bed, thinking about Jack's retirement)
      Elliot: You get horny when you're sad?
      Maya: (awkwardly) ...No
      Elliot: Yeah, me neither.

    • Jack: We made a great team, huh? My life, I've had a hell of a ride. But I wouldn't trade the time we had together for anything.
      (Jack embraces Elliot, Nina then Finch. They exit the office. Maya walks up to Jack)
      Maya: You okay?
      Jack: It's all good.
      (Maya exits. Jack pauses, then follows her out)

    • Jack: And you know what I'll always love most about you?
      Nina: My ass? Most people say it's my ass.

    • Maya: Someone take a pillow and smother me.
      Finch: Why don't we use your boobs?

    • Nina: When I needed a job, you were there. When I needed a friend, you were there. When I needed a kidney, you were there.
      Finch: Yeah, I think that was my kidney.
      Nina: Yeah, but Jack made you do it, and that's what's so sweet.
