It's a sad but true fact of life that everything must eventually come to an end – and when it comes to TV shows, some of those endings are much more satisfying than others.
Ten years ago, Six Feet Under set the bar with one of the greatest series finales of recent years: "Everyone's Waiting." In honor of the show's decade-long reign as the standard to which all other finales should be held, we're looking back at some of the greatest finale episodes of all time.
You're going to want to make sure you have plenty of tissues handy (warning: spoilers ahead).

Preheat your ovens and prep your vegetables: It's time to get cooking!
We're mixing up a small-screen feast in honor of the return of Young & Hungry. One of our most reliable sources of dinner inspiration (witness: Emily Osment's millennial food blogger Gabi effortlessly whipping up breakfast, lunch and dinner while also juggling her messy personal life), the ABC Family sitcom is just the latest in a long line of cooking scenes on television.
Below, we satisfy our cravings with some of our favorite TV culinary moments ever. Think of them as an amuse-bouche, if you will …

It seems like every time our favorite TV characters take a vacation, they end up in one of three main destinations: Hawaii, Paris or Disney World.
It makes sense that these would be such popular destinations – after all; they're familiar, easy to film in and ripe for sitcom hijinks. And really, who doesn't want to hang with Mickey and Minnie or sunbathe in the tropics or even take a romantic stroll along the Seine?
Since all three of these locations seemed to entice our favorite shows over and over again, we couldn't help but wonder which other exotic destinations are statistically more likely to attract our favorite TV shows. Since we never pass up an excuse to binge watch Friends and Saved by the Bell, we dug through some classic shows from the TV archives and did a little math. You'll notice that some shows managed to rack up some serious frequent flier miles during their runs!

Amy Poehler's wonderful Parks and Recreation ended its seven-season run on NBC Tuesday night with an hour-long finale that wasn't strictly necessary: The season had been so good – and so good at building to this goodbye – that the show seemed to have already sneaked out of the room during a game of peek-a-boo.
You took your hands away from your eyes and realized the room was suddenly empty.
At which point you began to cry.

After seven brilliant seasons, Parks and Recreation airs its final episode on Tuesday night.
Though often overlooked despite its longevity and critical acclaim, the writers – with showrunner Mike Schur at the helm – created a rich universe filled with well-rounded characters whose quirks were celebrated often in the form of joke callbacks that were as hilarious on the second, third and 10th time they were told as they were the first.
In advance of the series finale, we thought we'd revisit seven of the best recurring jokes on Parks.

[BRIGHTCOVE "20902901" "" "peoplenow"] Following a possible overdose, Harris Wittels was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Thursday night, reports Entertainment Weekly. He was 30.
At the Unite4:Humanity event in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler paid homage to Wittels during her acceptance of the unity award: "So, here's my daily life – today, I lost a friend. I lost a dear, young man in my life who was struggling with addiction and died. Just a few hours before we came," she said.
"Jane [Aronson] and I sat and talked about it. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day and at the end of the day when things happen in our lives, we turn to people that we love, and we look to our family and our community for support, and we lean on people in a hope that they will ease our pain," Poehler finished.
