Michael Scott has officially left The Office. Steve Carell’s amazing, 7 season character is gone.
Through thick and through thin, through cringe-worthy moments and hilarity, Michael Scott made The Office what it is today.
Some of what he says rings true in my life, too.
I often start conversations and hope to pick them up as they go.
Season Two, Booze Cruise. What a quality episode.
And so, on April 28th, 2011, we said goodbye to one of TV’s most influential characters, played by the marvelous Steve Carell. He will be sorely missed.
When asked if he had anything to say to the fans of the show, Steve said:
“I do, actually. I’ve made an enormous mistake, and I think that I probably shouldn’t be going. *Laughs* I’m really thankful, I think we’re all very thankful to have had the job – this is more than a job, really. I think everybody here feels that way. It’s been not only fun but – I was talking to my wife about it, and I’ve been pretty emotional the last couple of weeks too, and one of the things she said that I thought really hit the nail on the head was that it’s a part that has kind of defined me professionally, but on top of that she said these are your friends. So, that to me is why the show has been so important to me and the fact that people have watched it and enjoyed it over the years that I’ve been on it, and will continue to enjoy it because it remains and will continue to be a fantastic show.”
Thank you for making my life more hilarious, more awkward, and more fantastic than I can ever know.
Goodbye, Michael Scott!
