The Office: Finale

924. Finale

Aired May 16, 2013

The Dunder Mifflin gang reunite for the first time since the documentary series premiered one year earlier. They all attend a "Where are they now?" discussion panel on the same weekend as Dwight and Angela's wedding.

Quote from Michael Scott

Jim: Either way, Dwight, I can't be there for you. I'm sorry.
Dwight K. Schrute: Jim.
Jim: I just really wish there was something I could do. [looks off into the distance]
Dwight K. Schrute: [turns around] Michael. I can't believe you came.
Michael Scott: That's what she said.
Jim: [to camera] Best prank ever.


Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: [crying] I feel like all my kids grew up and then they married each other. It's every parent's dream.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Do I get along with my co-workers? Well, first of all, I don't have co-workers anymore, I have subordinates. So, have I gotten along with my subordinates? Let's see. My supplier relations rep, Meredith Palmer, is the only person I know who knows how to properly head bang to Motorhead. Oscar Martinez, my accountant, is now godfather to my son. Angela Schrute, my former accountant is now my wife. My top salesman, Jim Halpert was best man at my wedding and office administrator Pamela Beesley Halpert is my best friend. So, yes. I'd say I have gotten along with my subordinates.

Quote from Pam

Pam: I didn't watch the whole documentary. After a few episodes, it was too painful. I kept wanting to scream at Pam. It took me so long to do so many important things. It's just hard to accept that I spent so many years being less happy than I could have been. Jim was 5 feet from my desk and it took me four years to get to him. It'd be great if people saw this documentary and learned from my mistakes. Not that I'm a tragic person. I'm really happy now. But it would just... just make my heart soar if someone out there saw this and she said to herself "Be strong, trust yourself, love yourself. Conquer your fears. Just go after what you want and act fast, because life just isn't that long."

Quote from Kevin

Kevin: If there is one thing that I have learned through this whole experience, it's that if you film anybody long enough, they're going to do something stupid. It's only human natural.

Quote from Andy

Andy: I spent so much of my time here at Dunder Mifflin thinking about my old pals, my college a cappella group. The weird thing is now, I'm exactly where I wanna be. I got my dream job at Cornell and I'm still just thinking about my old pals. Only now they're the ones I made here. I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them. ... Someone should write a song about that.

Quote from Jim

Jim: I sold paper at this company for twelve years. My job was to speak to clients on the phone about quantities and types of copier paper. Even if I didn't love every minute of it, everything I have, I owe to this job. This stupid, wonderful, boring, amazing job.

Quote from Erin

Erin: How did you do it? How did you capture what it was really like? How we felt and how made each other laugh and how we got through the day? How did you do it? Also, how do cameras work?

Quote from Meredith

Meredith: I just feel lucky that I got a chance to share my crummy story with anyone out there who thinks they're the only one to take a dump in a paper shredder. You're not alone sister. Let's get a beer sometime.

Quote from Phyllis

Phyllis: Oh, some fudge?
Malcolm: Oh, thanks. I love your fudge.
Phyllis: Thanks.
Malcolm: I think I gained a couple of pounds since I got here.
Phyllis: [laughing] Oh, you can afford it.
[aside to camera:]
Phyllis: After 16 years, it's strange sitting across from somebody who isn't Stanley. But... he'll get there.

Quote from Oscar

Oscar: You take something ordinary, like a piece of paper. It's not much. But if you see it in the right way... And that's what you did with this documentary. But seriously, you made a nine-year documentary and you couldn't once show me doing my origami.

Quote from Jim

Jim: Imagine going back and watching a tape of your life. You could see yourself change and make mistakes and grow up. You could watch yourself fall in love, watch yourself become a husband, become a father. You guys gave that to me. And that's... an amazing gift.

Quote from Phyllis

Phyllis: I'm happy that this was all filmed so I can remember everyone and what we did. I worked for a paper company all these years and I never wrote anything down.

Quote from Creed

Creed: It all seems so very arbitrary. I applied for a job at this company because they were hiring. I took a desk at the back because it was empty. But...[chuckles] no matter how you get there or where you end up, human beings have this miraculous gift to make that place home. [to the two cops by his side] Let's do this.

Quote from Darryl

Darryl: Everyday when I came into work, all I wanted to do was leave. So why in the world does it feel so hard to leave right now?

Quote from Pam

Pam: I thought it was weird when you picked us to make a documentary. But all in all, I think an ordinary paper company like Dunder Mifflin was a great subject for a documentary. There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn't that kind of the point?

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: I brought in some new faces, and one old. I always like Devon. I hired him back after Creed faked his own death in the baler the day after the doc aired. The only person he fooled was Kevin. Then the police showed up. Turns out, Creed was in the band "The Grass Roots" in the 1960's. During that time, the police say he sold drugs and trafficked in endangered species meat and stole weapons-grade LSD from the military.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Oh, man, never thought I'd say this but I think I ate too much bone marrow.

Quote from Erin

Joan: I have a question for Erin.
Erin: Really?
Joan: Yes. Um, the thing I found most compelling about the documentary was your search for your birth mother.
Erin: Thank you.
Joan: So my question is, um, do... Don't you hate her? I mean, I would just imagine that you were so angry at her that you would hate her.
Erin: Maybe sometimes. But not like hate hate. More just like, "Mom, I hate you!" And then she would say "Go to your room, young lady." And I'd stamp my foot and run upstairs and I have a room, which is really cool. And then we'd just have dinner together. But I don't know. I'd have to meet her. Thanks.
Joan: Erin...
Erin: Yes?
Joan: Um... Oh, Erin..
Erin: Yes? Is there a follow-up question? [eventually realizes] Mom? [Erin walks to Joan, they hug]
Ed: Erin? Same question but about your dad. [they hug]

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Pam: I finally feel ready. Athlead is growing.
Jim: Athleap.
Pam: And Jim can jump back in without skipping a beat. We'll come back to visit. But I think it's time for us to officially-
Dwight K. Schrute: No, don't say it. You're fired! You're both fired!
Jim: Dwight, come on. Don't end on a bad note.
Dwight K. Schrute: Don't be an idiot. It's for the severance. The best that I can do is one month for every year you've been here. That's the max.
Pam: Thanks, Dwight.
Jim: Hey, and if you're ever in Austin...
Dwight K. Schrute: Whoa. Right. For what, the art? The music? The incredible nightlife? No, thank you. But if you're ever in the area, you'll always have a place to stay... in my barn.
Jim: There it is.
