The Simpsons paid a final tribute to the late Marcia Wallace -- and her character, Edna Krabappel -- on Sunday night's episode of the animated show.

At the end of the episode, titled "The Bob Who Grew Too Much," Ned Flanders -- who married the teacher in an episode that aired a couple years ago -- is seen remembering a time the duo went dancing.

Back in the present day, Ned says, "Sure do miss that laugh." Appearing at his window, Nelson offers his own signature "ha ha," before agreeing: "I miss her, too."

The episode marks the final appearance for Edna, who also appeared in another episode, "Yolo," following Wallace's Oct. 25 death of complications from pneumonia.

Wallace won an Emmy for her voice work on the 1992 Simpsons episode "Bart the Lover."

In November, the show remembered her in its opening credits sequence. "We'll really miss you Mrs. K.," Bart Simpson wrote on the chalkboard.

Wallace also was known for her role as quick-witted receptionist Carol Kester on the 1970s comedy The Bob Newhart Show. She was 70.

The Simpsons airs Sundays on Fox.
