The mystery has finally been solved…
That bit at the airport, eh? Bit of a tear-jerker, no? Pam running up to Michael as he’s about to leave, then whispering something THAT WE DAMN-WELL COULDN’T HEAR. What did she say? Somebody tell us!
The show’s been done for about five years now, and we still haven’t the foggiest what was said - emotions have been shattered ever since. So thank Jenna Fischer then, who has finally put them back together again. For she has finally answered the lingering question, spilling the beans on an Instagram live video the other day:
“That was me talking to Steve [Carell]. I told him all the ways I was going to miss him when he left our show. Those were real tears and a real goodbye.
“That was a really emotional scene.”
Too bloody right, Pam.
She also answered another burning question: what’s her favourite episode?
“I just watched ‘Branch Wars’ from Season 4 and I was kind of loving it, but my ultimate favorite is ‘Dinner Party.’”
This is an absolutely fair shout, considering it gave us one of the best scenes (and blooper reels) of the whole series:
Mixture of emotions in this post, we must admit - from tears straight to laughter without a moment’s notice. But that’s ShortList.com, taking you on a rollercoaster ride every single day, whether you like it or not.
News broke in December last year that the US Office was ‘unofficially officially’ coming back to our screens for a new 2018/19 - head here for the full story on that.
