As Regis Philbin says his final farewells to daytime television and America cries into their coffee, here is a little reminder why we love Regis so much.
On his final week as co-host of "Live! With Regis and Kelly," the 80-year-old icon took the tour of talk shows seeming more humbled with each appearance and showing off that same sense of humor that has kept his fans smiling for decades. Regis appeared on"Good Morning America" to discuss his amazing career, filmed “Regis Philbin: The Morning Maestro” with Katie Couric, which aired on the eve of his last day and to end the tour with a bang, he appeared on "The Late Show With David Letterman."
The two television greats continued their man-love affair, playfully poking fun at one another. Although Regis kindly reminded Dave that he's getting older and invited him to come along for the retirement ride, it wasn't until they went outside that things got a little dicey.
Regis took to the streets to try out his new ride, a vespa, given to him by Dave. After the first failed attempt, which landed Regis on the ground, Dave offered to give him a lift and cruised around the streets of New York City together.
Take a look below at the photos of the spill and the two riding off into the sunset.
