Jenna Fischer Finally Reveals What Pam Whispered To Michael As He Left 'The Office'
I'm not sobbing, you're sobbing.
If you, like me, are a diehard fan of The Office (A.K.A. the best comedy series ever made, don't @ me), you'll love this update: Jenna Fischer has finally revealed what she whispered to Steve Carell in his last episode of the show. In "Goodbye, Michael," Dunder Mifflin Scranton manager, Michael Scott, heads to the airport en route to Colorado to meet his new fiance, Holly Flax (Amy Ryan). Pam Beesly, his loyal secretary, catches him at security to say a final goodbye, but there's no audio for their brief chat. The audacity, am I right? Viewers were left speculating as to the content of their convo, and it left a nagging mystery hanging off the iconic character's exit.
In 2013, Fischer added fuel to the piping hot curiosity fire when she told TV Guide the whispered words weren't just Pam's farewell to Michael, but were in fact her own authentic goodbye to Carell. Still, she declined to share what she said to him — until now.
During a recent Instagram livestream session, Fischer recalled the profound encounter, and at long last shared what she said in Michael's final scene as a cast regular.
"I told him all the ways I was going to miss him when he left our show," she said. "Those were real tears, and a real goodbye. That was a really emotional scene."
In January, Zimbio chatted with The Office alum, Angela Kinsey, about the rumor of a revival of the series. Sadly, it seems none of the original cast has been contacted yet about reprising their roles.
"I can tell you that no one has been approached yet. No one has been told anything," Kinsey said. "Basically, we all read [about the potential revival] online just like everyone else. But we're all excited about it. The people I've talked to, anyway, would be excited. We loved that world, and it was an amazing, awesome, talented group to be a part of."
Fischer, who appeared on Kinsey's YouTube channel in December 2017, echoed her friend's statements during a January press tour for her show, Splitting Up Together.
"I haven't been approached about it and don't know anything about it," she admitted, adding, "but I love Pam!"
Now, you'll have to excuse me. I'm off to re-watch Michael's final episode with renewed vigor.
