“The Goldbergs” marked the final appearance of George Segal’s Pops character with a touching montage featuring the late actor.
Following Wednesday’s episode, titled “Couple Off,” ABC presented a 45-second video montage, bookended by graphics that read, “DEDICATED TO OUR FRIEND, GEORGE” and “We will miss you, George.”
The clip featured some of Segal’s most memorable moments from the show’s eight seasons — dressed in outrageous get-ups, offering words of wisdom and embracing members of his TV family, including his daughter Beverly, his son-in-law Murray, and his grandchildren — Barry, Erica and Adam — played respectively by Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeff Garlin, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia and Sean Giambrone.

The episode was shot before the Oscar-nominated actor died on March 23 from complications of bypass surgery.
When his death was announced, the cast of the “Goldbergs” released a statement about the actor’s death.
“George was the true epitome of class and he touched all of our lives so deeply,” said the “Goldbergs” cast. “It was an honor and a privilege to have him as a colleague and friend all of these years. It is no surprise to any of us that knew him so well that he is a true national treasure. He will be missed by all.”
