Michael Scott Gets a Farewell Hug at the Airport on 'The Office' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 29th 2011 4:30AM

Michael Scott leaves 'The Office'The episode that has been talked about for months finally happened Thursday night -- Michael Scott left Dunder Mifflin. And thus Steve Carell left 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC). Despite the goofiness, it was a touching episode that showed Scott as a caring, capable human being. And when he finally gets to the airport, intercepted by Pam for a quick goodbye, it feels good to see him happy and doing the right thing.

The conceit that this is all one big, long documentary came back into focus in the ending scene. "Hey, will you guys let me know if this ever airs," said Scott before remembering at last to take off his mic. "This is going to feel so good, getting this thing off my chest."

Of course, Scott couldn't resist one more, "That's what she said," even if the mic was no longer picking it up. Then it was one last hug, and the plane took off, leaving a few last episodes covering the scramble to replace the World's Greatest Boss.

It won't be the same without Steve Carrell! As much as I love Will Farrell, ( I met him when he was still in "The Groundlings". He and Cheri Oterie were famous for their "Cheerleaders" routine. No one can replace Steve Carrell, on the "The Office"!

The Office has a great cast and Steve Carrell was perfect for his role! If you haven't seen it, then you missed a great talent! Anyone who questions his talent has not seen The Office or Date Night. The guy is a great talent, I don't care what anyone says!

I think there was a blooper at the end. Michael took off his mic so we couldn't hear him anymore, but shouldn't we have been able to hear Pam speaking to Michael? And we didn't.

I never, ever have added a comment anywhere on-line before, but (lower case j here!) "joker" ... you ARE a joke, so had to add a comment here. What a silly, non-sensical comment(s) from you . Steve Carrell trying to be Jim Carrey? Silly, silly, boy, The show is one of the funniest shows on television (That's why it is AND was on the "most prime time" of "prime time" television last night)...along with Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, and Community. Even, each of "The Office" characters has their own personality which is funnier than most comedy shows on the tube. Of course, "the Office MAKES MORE SENSE and is a much funnier show to "working people" who can relate, see the irony, and who actually "have worked" and have "spent time in a working environment" at sometime" in their lives. Hint. Hint. Lastly, Jim Carrey was great in his earlier movies, but has bottomed out and needs to return to his roots of physical comedy with better writers. In my opinion, Carrey is a different type of comedian/character from Steve. Steve, like the rest of "The Office" cast, but more so, brings out the extremes (the quirkiness, double-speak, silliness, etc., etc.) of the manager we "who have worked" all have come across sometime in our "work experience". That's what makes it so funny" So, OK Joker, fire back with more of your silliness ... I know you must have more to say. After all, anyone can see that you must have lots of time on your hands to talk a lot. I'm sure everyone out here is just waiting on pins and needles to hear more of your silliness. Or are you going to do all of us a favor, and just fade away, like your BFF Jim Carrey?

Funniest on television? You've got to be kidding. I've tried watching that show a number of times and never once did Carrell make me laugh, let alone even smirk. The guy just is NOT funny.

Wow, so your one opinion apparently outweighs the thousands of others who know he's funny? Conceited, narcissist jackass.
