Alright, hold your tears and grab your favorite Dundie award because it's officially been a decade since the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch closed its doors for good. Yes, you heard that right, ten years since The Office aired its last episode and we're still not over it. The nostalgia hit us like a Dundie to the head when Jenna Fischer shared a behind-the-scenes photo from filming the series finale and wrote, "There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn't that kind of the point? Final Pam talking head." Oh, Pam, how we still miss you.
But, wait, there's more! Angela Kinsey, who played the "senior quality assurance" accountant, Angela Martin, also took to Instagram to share a memory from the finale: the time when Phyllis carried her character down the aisle to marry Dwight. "Ten years ago today Phyllis carried Angela down the aisle to marry her love, Dwight. #theofficefinale," she wrote. Now, that's one way to tie the knot! And, who can forget Kevin Malone, played by Brian Baumgartner, who posted a message on social media to commemorate the show's anniversary: "10 years ago today The Office series finale aired and we all said goodbye to Dunder Mifflin. (@soulstealer007 )" Well, Kevin, we still haven't forgiven you for spilling that chili.
But, if you're still not emotional enough, Jennifer Garner's comment on Fischer's post will do the trick. She wrote, "Finales really get to me but this one just about did me in." You're not alone, Jen, we're all reaching for the tissue box. Steve Carell, who played the iconic role of Michael Scott, revealed on the Office Ladies podcast that filming his send-off episode was "very emotional". We feel you, Michael.
So, let's raise a glass of scotch and soda to the show that gave us endless laughs, cringe-worthy moments, and the most iconic love story between JAM (Jim and Pam) we've ever seen. Here's to The Office, a show that will always be more than just a sitcom. As Michael Scott once said, "I declare bankruptcy!" Wait, no, that's not what we wanted to say. Oh, here it is, "That's what she said."
