Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 3.55.44 PMIt was a sad weekend for fans of Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele”: News broke that the fifth and current season of the Emmy-nominated show will be its last.

“It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart,” Keegan-Michael Key told TheWrap. “I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie.”

Avoid your natural instinct to curl up into a ball and cry (first “The Colbert Report,” then Jon Stewart, now this?!) and re-live the good times with our staff’s five favorite sketches:

Gay Wedding Advice

“Cousin Delroy’s getting married – to a man,” and his family seeks guidance on what to expect at the ceremony.

Substitute Teacher

Inner-city substitute teacher Mr. Garvey is out of his element at his latest assignment.

The duo’s East/West Bowls are among their most well-known sketches, but this year’s edition stood out for its cameo from former Longhorn Fozzy Whittaker. (Parts one and two are also excellent.)

Menstruation Orientation

Hilarious and educational.

Obama’s Anger Translator

Last but certainly not least: The president’s anger translator, Luther, says everything the commander in chief can’t.

BONUS: Luther stole the show at this year’s White House Correspondents’ dinner:
