As Late Show With David Letterman winds down in its final weeks, expect more and more guest stars to drop by and wish the departing host farewell. The latest to return to the Ed Sullivan Theater: Cher, who stopped by not only say goodbye to Letterman, but also to remind him he’s still an “asshole”—something she called him on the show in 1986.

After she walked onstage to cheers from the audience, Cher dove right into her message, telling Letterman, “For a number of years, there’s something that I’ve always wanted to get straight between us… This is one thing that I really mean from the bottom of my heart, I’m not kidding, no bullshit: I really love you and I’m going to miss you.”

The two hugged. “That’s very sweet of you,” Letterman told her. “Yes,” Cher responded, “and you’re still an asshole.” Check out their reunion in the video below:
