This scene broke my heart. Last scene Steve filmed, and it had so much emotion past Michael and Jim. All John and Steve.
I think we should just save the goodbyes for tomorrow…at lunch. And then tomorrow I can tell you what a great boss you turned out to be. The best boss I ever had.
ANGELA KINSEY: Is there anything you want to say to the fans as you…as your character departs the show?
STEVE CARELL: 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.
