On Sunday’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, one of his final episodes, the host was in Indonesia. There, before attending a funeral celebration in a local villages, his conversation with a friend and resident named Lawrence eerily turned to Bourdain’s own death.
In their discussion, Bourdain admitted that he has considered “how I want to go” and asked Lawrence about his preference. The question was then turned back to Bourdain. “Leave me in the jungle,” he replied. “I don’t want a party. Reported dead.”
The moment struck a nerve with fans:
i need to go outside for a few minutes. that episode was heartbreaking. #partsunknown

That wasn’t the only scene that had fans feeling emotional. After an off-camera producer asked Bourdain to discuss a dish he was eating, he said he would do it later in a voice-over session.
“We don’t need to talk about this food because I know it very, very well,” Bourdain said. “I will speak incredibly knowledgeably about it in voice-over. Trust me.”
Bourdain, who died June 8 at age 61 from an apparent suicide, never had a chance to do the voice-over. Though he was cremated, in this episode he stated he had “zero interest” in what happened to his physical remains unless it could provide “entertainment value” of some kind.
“Throw me into a wood chipper, spray me into Harrods in the middle of the rush hour,” he said. “That would be pretty epic. I wouldn’t mind being remembered in that way.”
