Episode 1522 (Brian Williams with Feist) Season 33 11/03/2007
Sketch: Riley's Way

It's the very last shot of the very last episode of the best high school drama in the history of the CW, "Riley's Way." In caps and gowns, three students sit on the swings; they can't believe high school is over. Principal Jeffries appears to offer his advice for the future in the show's final line: "Live!" There's a technical problem, so the actors have to run the scene again.

Actor Barry, who plays the principal, knows he's going to get emotional at the wrap party, just like he did on "Quantum Leap." He wants to hang out with the young actors, but they're all starting on a spin-off next week, "Riley's Way, The College Years," and Barry learns that he's not going with them. In the second take, Principal Jeffries has different advice for the future, telling one actor to lose ten pounds another that he's gay, and the third to go to hell. The director yells cut. He can't put Barry in the spin-off. He's a great actor and he'll be fine; after all, he did "The Leap."

In another take, Principal Jeffries wears a baseball hat, claiming that he never finished his college degree, so he'll see the actors in the spin-off. Barry admits that Principal Jeffries wasn't the most popular character. He was just a man. He wishes all the actors good luck, hoping their next leap is the great leap home. Touched, the director calls in a writer; Principal Jeffries deserves a new ending. In the final take, a set worker plays a new character, the student who killed Principal Jeffries.
