  1. Did anyone notice that Kelly is standing next to Ryan… and although kelly’s other man is there, he is holding a white baby…. drama?

  2. Oh gawd, Tanster – why do you post these clips during the workday? Do you really expect me to hold out until I get home to watch? Now I sit in my cube sniffling and wiping my eyes. Can I blame it on allergies? LOL

    I am super-excited to see that NBC filmed parts of the PNC Field event from the Wrap Party though!

    [ from tanster: i know. :( ]

  3. :’)

    Is it just me, or does the stripper look like the same stripper in Ben Franklin?

    [ from tanster: yes, that’s Jackie Debatin! got to meet her, she is so sweet. :) ]

  4. The world will cry that day.. At least I will for an hour + the hours after the episode x3

  5. Having a hard time dealing with this. I want to pretend like next Thursday will be like any other season finale Thursday, and that we’ll have a new season to look forward to in the fall. I’ve been crying on and off since I got up this morning.

    I want to retreat into complete denial. Can’t deal with it otherwise.

  6. I’ve lurked on this site for years, and I just came here to say this: If Steve / Michael isn’t in the episode, I will be extremely and outrageously pissed. It would have felt like it was all for nothing.

  7. Does anyone know if they’ll put the “looking back on the office” part on hulu? I don’t have TV!

  8. @8. I’m in the same boat. Couldn’t find it online but I bet they will. If not I’m sure it will be on NBC’s site

  9. Tanster, thanks for the clarification! That’s SO funny to me.

    @Ellery, not sure, but I’m sure it would be available online eventually. I don’t see why they wouldn’t.

  10. @ Brayden

    I noticed that too. I also noticed the stripper’s back. I’m sure will get plenty of callbacks to previous episodes.

    Actually, one thing I really hope they do for the finale is put EVERYONE’S name in the opening credits, like they did in “Stress Relief”. “Lost” did that for their finale.

    And denials or not, I’m still holding out hope for a Michael Scott appearance.

  11. The Office has been with me since November, 2005 – through the naivete of early college years to the unearned cynicism of these mid-to-late twenties. For me, and I’m sure for many others, this show has been there for the beginning of many beginnings, and lived beyond the end of many ends. Though I have not made a video since 2006 – part of my own evolution as a fan is embedded in the evolution of fandom, of new social mediums and burgeoning online cultures. This show is every bit the anthology of a decade of digital changes.

    To say that I am sad would be an understatement. So much of what I find funny, what I find romantic, and what I expect to be true about the nebulous adult world comes from this little series. Times have changed, and so has The Office. But that it’s always THERE, to anchor me through a life I never knew I’d be living eight years ago…well.

    Thursday nights will not be the same. And I will miss this community. Thank you, Tanster.

  12. Did anyone else key in on Darryl stepping out of the limo? I think that indicates Athlead blew up (in a good way). Jim owns a portion of the company. It seems like even if he didn’t go on the 3 month trip, he should still be rolling in dough.

  13. A re-run of Grief Counselling was on the other night and this quote kind of sums up how I feel…
    Michael: There are five stages to grief, which are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. And right now, out there, they’re all denying the fact that they’re sad. And that’s … hard. And it’s making them all angry. And it is my job to try to get them all the way through to acceptance. And if not acceptance, then just depression. If I can get them depressed, then I’ll have done my job.

  14. It would be awesome if someone recorded the retrospective for those who are not in the United States.

    I wish I were able to watch this before the finale, but I guess I will just watch it later.

  15. clearly the fans aren’t the only ones crying through these last few episodes. you can see tears welled up in several of the actors’ eyes during many of the scenes. must have been extremely difficult for them to get through some of the scenes.
    thanks so much and i wish all of them happiness.

  16. Pam standing on a roof dressed up… probably unveiling a mural?

    Phyllis giving Angela a piggy back ride down the aisle? Ha!

    Darryl in a limo… Athlead looks to be strong

    Andy comes back to The Office and Phyllis looks surprisingly emotional.

    Kelly holding a white baby in between Ryan and Ravi makes me LOL so hard.

    I used to watch your “All” Jim/Pam video on Youtube a ton. I found it again after this last episode to reminisce.

    My wife and I have watched The Office since the Basketball episode. We were hooked immediately. We were young 20 year old newlyweds, and now are approaching 30 with a 2 year old.

    I’ve been coming to this site every week since it started. Thanks for all of the work that you do Tanster!
