It wasn’t exactly easy to say goodbye to all the characters in last night’s finale of HBO’s hit show Girls. We especially had a hard time saying a bittersweet farewell to Elijah, who arguably became the most hilarious and endearing character on the show, even though he had his many flaws (who didn’t, though?). This final season of Girls was an especially special time for Elijah to rise and shine. He got a lot more screen time, his nuanced relationship with Hannah was featured more often, and he landed a role on Broadway’s new musical “White Men Can’t Jump.”
As the characters on Girls changed and grew up — or, you know, didn’t — we found ourselves falling more and more in love with Elijah. Which leaves us with the ultimate question: HBO, will you please give Elijah his own spin-off TV show? Thanks in advance.
Here are the best one liners from Elijah, to make the goodbye a little less bitter and a little more sweet.
We’ll miss you, Elijah!
