Ugly BettyWhat will we miss most about 'Ugly Betty'? (Besides Betty Suarez's once-dreadful fashion blunders, now a thing of the past, thanks to four years among New York's fashion elite.) The witty repartee and casual cruelty of Mode players like uber-bitch Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams), sharp-tongued assistant editor Marc St. James (Michael Urie) and bitchy bimbo Amanda (Becki Newton).

Betty (America Ferrera) got off quite a few clever retorts of her own, and how could we not include her boss (and mate for life?) Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius), who often opened his mouth without thinking, to hilarious results. Or what about her always-fabulous nephew, Justin (Marc Indelicato)?

In honor of tomorrow night's series finale (10PM ET on ABC), we count down 20 of 'Ugly Betty's' best zingers.
