Canada's mom is here to make your day. Schitt's Creek star Catherine O'Hara taught fans on Instagram Live how to speak like Moira Rose. She even shared the most bizarre words straight out of a dictionary! 

The 66-year-old actress has played the matriarch of the Rose family for six seasons. However, tonight that comes to an end with the series finale of the CBC comedy.

During an Instagram Live on the Schitt's Creek account, O'Hara used her time chatting with fans to teach them life lessons, including how to adopt "Moiraisms" that we've come to know and love from her character.

Reading directly out of a dictionary, the actress defined words including suaviate, contiguity, abligurition, paizogony, and anaxiphilia, which are totally all words we could hear Moira muttering to her family. 

"Suaviate, of course, is kiss. Abligurition is excessive spending on food and drink. Paizogony is heavy petting, love play. And anaxiphilia is your right to fall for people who are no way worthy of your love, and that's okay, that's what we do."

O'Hara continued, "Perhaps when we get back to what once was, our good new days, a little lap-tea now and then. Now lap-tea is a very crowded tea party in which guests sit on each other's laps. Can you imagine such a thing the way we're living now? It will happen again."

In another clip posted by a user, O'Hara even mentioned her iconic "bébé" that she uses in the sitcom to refer to the many wigs she wears and adores.

"A doddymite is an infant, or bébé. A lobcock is a dull, sluggish lout or a relaxed penis. That's a lobcock."

Another user shared a clip of her putting on lipstick during the video writing, "You've heard of Catherine O'Hara laughing without moving her mouth.....now get ready for Catherine O'Hara talking while putting on lipstick—without moving her mouth".

The actress even signed off the chat with her iconic "caw caw" which the Schitt's Creek Twitter posted a clip of.

O'Hara's video was part of the Schitt's Creek Gives Back fundraiser. Each day a different cast member goes live to raise money for food banks in Canada and the US during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The GoFundMe page has a $150,000 donation goal and already surpassed it with over $164,000 in donations. 

You can say goodbye to the Schitt's Creek cast with the season six series finale tonight at 8 p.m. on CBC, followed by the Schitt's Creek Farewell documentary at 8:30 p.m.
