Jenna Fischer Finally Revealed What She Actually Said To Steve Carell During The Emotional Airport Scene From ‘The Office’

If you’re a fan of “The Office,” saying goodbye to Michael Scott was one of the hardest things for you to do.
Like myself, many people will watch the entire series all the way through and once Michael Scott makes his sad exit–stop watching and restart again. While I have love for the rest of the characters on the show, there is no denying that “The Office” got horrible after Steve Carell left.

During Carell’s last episode, “Goodbye Michael Scott,” there is a moment where Pam is not at the office when Michael is saying his goodbyes. Instead, she drives all the way to the airport to say goodbye to him before leaving.

Neither actor had mics on them at the moment–and fans have long wondered what was said between Pam and Michael–aka Jenna and Steve. Recently, in an Instagram video, Jenna Fischer told fans exactly what was said between the two–a question fans have been asking forever.

Fischer said:

“That was me talking to Steve. I told him all the ways I was going to miss him when he left our show. Those were real tears and a real goodbye. That was a really emotional scene.”

As the cast had been working together for years prior to Steve’s exit–I’m sure everyone felt the same way Jenna did when crying/saying goodbye to him. She also admitted that like many other castmates, “Dinner Party,” is still her favorite episode from the series.

Twitter has been all in their feelings since discovering that the scene was not acting, but real, live emotions.
