Did You Know?


During the scene at the airport where Michael talks to the camera for the last time, he takes off his mic and says "This is gonna feel so good getting this thing off my chest". Afterwards, the audio cuts out and if you look and listen very closely Michael says to the cameraman "That's what she said". See more »


Pam catches up with Michael at the airport after security screening. As Pam is not traveling, she has no ticket, and thus would not have been allowed through airport security to the departure gates. See more »

A Great Way for Steve (Michael) to Exit!
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was literally the most I cried in years..... I am a huge fan and thought they did a masterful job of Steve's exit. Last week the whole song scene brought me to tears it was so great, but this week I was bawling. I really hope that the series continues to go strong without him..... this was just amazing. I recommend this to anyone that has been a fan of the show. It is a great, classy way for him to exit!

I really can't help but wonder who will be the new manager. I hope it isn't an outside hire. When they tried that while Michael was at the Michael Scott Paper Company, they just couldn't function under a traditional boss. So that is just something to think about.

We will miss you Steve......
