  1. Wow. Best farewell ever. I have always been a Seinfeld nut, and have over the course of the years allowed The Office to come forward and equal up with Seinfeld in my mind. But this season has forever pushed Seinfeld to second. As a total work, this show is the best and most groundbreaking sitcom of all time! Mostly because the people involved have heart.

  2. Sobbing. I can’t handle this. I always knew I would be devastated when the show ended, but it’s hitting me even harder than I ever expected. I just … this show has meant the world to me. I can’t even explain it. Beautiful, gut-wrenching farewell videos here. Thanks to the cast for making them, and for making this show that has meant so much to so many.

  3. My wife and I began our marriage by watching Season 2 and 3 in our honeymoon cabin. I’ll forever remember howling laughing at the sillyness of those beginning season episodes.
    You kinda hoped the show would go on forever, but deep down knew it wouldn’t.
    We are very sad to see this one of a kind show retire. There will never be a cast like this one again.

  4. David Denman’s farewell, I think, really captures what this show has given so many of us. Maybe it does seem strange that an actor can be years removed from a show and still be so affected by its end, but it makes sense to me. After all, isn’t that what happened with us – through the years, from near and far, maturing away from and coming right back to what The Office gave us:

    A family, and a kind nudge into our adult lives.

  5. The Office has been a unique experience because of the endearing nature of the characters and the actors’ portraying them. At times, I’ve enjoyed the bloopers / gag reels more than the show itself. That speaks volumes to the chemistry of this ensemble. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to say that for any other show.

    @tanster: I didn’t realize you *are* OfficeTally. I’ve been visiting this site since Season 2(?), and I can’t tell you how much I’ve appreciated you keeping up with not only the shows, but the people involved. Thank you.

  6. I have no idea how I’m going to make it into my own office on Friday. I was in the produce aisle at the grocery store yesterday and seriously felt sadness/nostalgia when I saw beets. ha :\

    Ugh. I’m going to miss these guys more than I do most people I’ve said goodbye to in real life. That sounds a little pathetic, but honestly, it’s just how much this show has meant to me.

  7. Rainn Wilson nails it in this clip when he says what all Office fans feel. It is amazing how this show can serve as a distraction for sometimes rough times in life. I didn’t start watching it until 2010, but DVDs of the first five seasons so I could catch up to that current season, got me through pneumonia and tough, stressful, times at work. That is what makes the great shows, great!

  8. Back in the day, much of my time was spent on this site, chatting with others who loved TO as much as I did. Because of that I forged some amazing friendships that last to this day. The Office will always hold a special place in my heart, as it was one of the greatest shows of all time, and I will always wish the very best for all of the actors involved. Thank you, to the cast and crew for such a wonderful ride.

  9. Not thinking, I started watching this at work, and realized halfway through that I was going to end up a puddle in my office. So a little while ago, I took a lunch break, walked to a park and watched this video (gotta love technology).

    Wow, this whole farewell series is incredible. It’s such a testament to how amazing this cast is, to take the time to say goodbye to us in a way that’s so beautiful. I’m starting to feel at peace, but still, Thursday is going to be the best/worst day ever. Thank you Office cast, writers and crew for making my favorite tv show!

  10. “Thank you for this.” I agree.

    I also want to thank them for loving the show as much as we did.

    I love them all.

  11. Omigosh… Jenna crying about how she would never be able to work there again… Two days from now… AH. I know this has been quoted over and over… but… This one’s gonna hurt like a motherf***er. Michael Gary Scott.

  12. Thank you…

    Wishful thinking: So, you know how Fox is going to do a “24” mini series that takes place several years after the finale, maybe the “doc crew” can do that again for us in 5 years or so?;)
