And now we celebrate Dr. Callie Torres with GIFs

ABC/Tony Rivetti

It's the end of a very rewarding era for Sara Ramirez, who has officially said goodbye to her Dr. Calliope "Callie" Iphegenia Torres character on Grey's Anatomy. The actress announced after the medical drama's Season 12 finale last night (May 19) that it will be the last time she'll walk through Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes (the woman also behind ABC favorites Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder) and Ramirez paid tribute to her departure, as she will be taking time off from acting.

While Ramirez wasn't a part of the original Grey's cast (she joined in 2006, during Season 2), she brought complexity, a strong will and a fierce personality to the show. She was also praised by GLAAD and and LGBT website AfterEllen for her portrayal of a bisexual character.

To honor of Dr. Torres' awesomeness, we put together ten of her most badass and unforgettable moments on Grey's Anatomy!

1 / 10

Experimental procedures are always risky, but when faced with skepticism and criticism, Callie would rather you shut up and let "The Dream Team" do its job.

2 / 10

Fiercely unapologetic, Dr. Torres continuously won the hearts of millions for her self-acceptance.

3 / 10

From dancing in her makeshift Seattle Grace basement home to dancing in Arizona's arms, Callie was never afraid to let her hair down and take her pants off.

4 / 10

When Callie's extremely religious and conservative father presented her with a priest to "discuss" her sexuality, she made sure everyone in the room was aware of just how gay she was.

5 / 10

Okay, so cursing out a dead patient's boyfriend might not have been Callie's best moment, but she made sure the guy knew just how crappy of a person he was. Callie's ex, George, overheard the whole thing, which was honestly perfect since her harsh words were actually about him.

6 / 10

Even as a resident, Callie was confident, bold, and sassy. And if you pissed her off, she could literally break you.

7 / 10

The girl liked her tequila. And wine. And various other alcohol beverages.

8 / 10

When Lexie started hooking up with Dr. Sloan, a.k.a. Mark, a.k.a. McSteamy, she gushed about every detail to Callie, the only one who knew about their secret relationship. But the very single Dr. Torres seriously gave zero shits.

9 / 10

She always got straight to the point. No bullshit.

10 / 10

Dr. Torres will be damned if pretty boy Jackson and his I-run-the-hospital standing dictates how she does her job!
