"The Simpsons" had one final farewell for Edna Krabappel in the latest episode. Marcia Wallace, who voiced Mrs. Krabappel, passed away in October after a long battle with breast cancer.
While Bart had a quick chalkboard nod to her passing back then, she got a more complete tribute in the video above. It came after the main action of the episode -- the return of Sideshow Bob -- had finished. She and Ned Flanders, with whom she'd struck up a relationship, were dancing together.
Edna gave her classic laugh before Ned woke up from what he realized was a dream. "Sure do miss that laugh," he said. School bully Nelson, who also has a signature laugh, echoed the sentiment. "I miss her, too," he declared.
“Ned’s memory of Mrs. Krabappel after the credits is lovely and heartbreaking," wrote The AV Club's Dennis Perkins. "Presumably her ultimate fate will be addressed in the future. If the writers handle it as well as they did here, it’ll be a fine goodbye indeed.” Watch the whole sequence above.
"The Simpsons" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
