The Best Moments from ‘The Office’ Series Finale
The ninth and final season of NBC’s The Office came to a conclusion in an episode that fans on social media have deems an instant classic. We’ve compiled the best moments from ‘The Office’ finale.
The two hour and fifteen minute Office send-off event started with a one-hour documentary about the mockumentary. The doc spliced the actors talking about their time on the show and showed some action from a large fan fest held in the series’s fictional home town of Scranton, PA.
The finale itself took place one year after the airing of the fictional documentary. The episode reunited the cast of office mates for a reunion about the fictional show and for the wedding of Dwight and Angela.
Some of the moments fans have picked out as momumental from the show:
The return of Michael Scott
The producers of the show were mum about whether Steve Carell would return. He did, he’s got a few kids, presumably with Holly and when he reunites with Jim and Dwight we get one last ‘That’s What She Said.’
Oscar attends Dwight’s bachelor party
Oscar joins the guys. Problem was, he kinda forgot how to do the straight guy thing. The moment gives us a flashback to a classic Michael Scott Whazz-up moment.
Andy Bernard’s Poignant Words
Ed Helms may have the most quoteable moment of the final episode. His Andy Bernard contemplates
“I wish there was a way to know you were in the good ‘ol days before you actually left them.” wise words from the final #TheOffice
