Replace PVC tee with straight run

I'm removing a bathroom vanity and it will not be replaced. The sink drain enters a 1 1/2 inch PVC drain line via a tee fitting. I'm planning to simply cut the tee out and replace with a straight run (as if the sink had never been there).

What fittings should I use to do this? In my limited PVC piping experience, the fittings set up very quickly, so I don't think I will be able to use 2 couplings plus straight pipe.

Thanks for the help with this very basic plumbing question. I searched the internet and did not find the answer.

Why not leave the T and just cap it off where you removed the sink drain?

The tee projects into the room, so if I just cap it off, I will not be able to close up the wall with sheetrock.
