Not long ago, in a galaxy of our own, these stars shone bright in their TV roles.

Peter's eulogy on Sunday, featured the comedic character making reference to sitcom theme songs from Friends, Cheers and Sanford and Son before he got more serious in honoring his friend.

"That was Angela — fearless, spontaneous, honest about herself just as much as she was about the world around her," Peter said.

Fisher's last vocal appearance in Family Guy's "Don't Be a Dickens at Christmas."

"She had grace, courage and an unmated zest for life. She may be gone, but her voice will live on in DVD and Hulu Plus and tiny droid-projected messages. I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess," he continued, in reference to Fisher's iconic role as Princess Leia in Star Wars.

The speech then ended with Peter realizing that he was at the wrong funeral.

Fisher died in December 2016 at the age of 60.

"Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely," MacFarlane said at the time.
