This two-hour special aired 3-29-78 and features highlights from the past 11 seasons as well as a final Family sketch and a Mrs. Wiggins/Mr. Tudball sketch. Eunice finally goes to see a therapist and Mr. Tudball moves the office and doesn’t tell Mrs. Wiggins where. Vicki Lawrence comes out of a stage door, signs Carol’s autograph book, kisses and hugs her and then leaves. Tim Conway comes down some stairs and does the same. Carol turns over a card with her show’s logo on it to a “Closed” sign. She walks down center stage and sits on a small bucket in a spotlight. She talks about how hard it is to leave and why she decided to end the show despite a 12th season renewal. She says it felt like the time to move on to do other things while the show was still doing well. Carol talks about each member of her cast and how much she loves and respects them. Finally, she thanks the audience and sings a soulful rendition of the show’s theme-song while trying to hold back tears. She blows a kiss to the audience and says goodnight. She gets up and quietly walks away, to the back of the huge stage, as the studio audience rises to their feet in applause.
She kisses the head of a sleeping security guard and goes out the huge stage door. The camera fades to a shot of the bucket and mop sitting on the floor and then fades to black. Comes with Case.
