"I don't care what you say, I'm coming to work Monday!" - The final words spoken on the sitcom COACH/ABC/1989-97.

Cast of COACH

For the last program, the show's cast gathered together to view some of the funniest moments from the life of the series.

As the program came to a close Jerry Van Dyke who played assistant coach Luther Van Dam refused to believe the show was actually over for good.

His fellow actor Ken Kimmons (who played Howard Burleigh) interjected "Jerry, its the final episode. They dedicated the stage to us. Here looks at this." [shows him a plaque] "Ah the prop department can make anything," snarls Jerry.

Craig T. Nelson, the star of the show then interrupts, "Putting Jerry aside, the show is over and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for watching the nine years of COACH and letting us do something that we truly, truly love. Thank you and goodnight."

As everyone leaves, Jerry refuses to go. "Come on Jerry," requests Craig T. Nelson. Jerry shoots back "Until somebody in a suit tells me its over, its not over." In walks a man in a suit. "Jerry, it's over." "That's not a suit," protests Jerry.

As the studio light are turned off for the last time, Jerry sits alone in the dark. A moment passes and then Jerry comments "Cheap special effects. Anybody can turn off the lights."

Finally, in a last ditch effort, Jerry stubbornly says "I don't care what you say, I'm coming to work Monday."
