The Office ended May 16, 2013. That might only be a year and a half ago, but with fall TV in full swing, The Office fans can feel the show's presence missing from our lives. Can't they just reunite and make new episodes already? Every other show/movie is getting redone or sequels or put on Netflix, why not skip the waiting period and do it now?
1. This show taught us amazing life lessons, like that you can be both feared and loved.
2. We also learned this very useful bit of advice about mistletoe.
3. The show gave us aspirations that we could do more than just sit in an office.
4. Kelly Kapoor is the reason we know what to say to sound smart.
5. And Michael broke the very important news over who loves pizza.
6. Kevin taught us all what dreams really are.
7. Our inner child smiled when Dwight used this insult we've been throwing at our friends since we could read.
8. This show introduced u s to a new National holiday.
9. They gave us hope to one day create such an amazing holiday card with our own co-workers.
10. Characters like Jim created places no one ever knew they wanted, but once we heard of them, we needed them.
11. But speaking of Jim, The Office also showed us that office romances can bloom into the most powerful and amazing things in the world.
12. The show gave us the perfect insult for Negative Nancys.
13. It also reminded us there are too many people on this planet.
14. Prison Mike let everyone know why we should never wind up in prison.
15. Stanley gave everyone a new life motto.
16. Jim and Dwight gave us very tough decisions. Did we love Jim as Dwight?
17. Or Dwight as Jim, more?
18. And honestly, is TV really even funny anymore if people aren't force-feeding Kevin vegetables?

Even when a television show is long past its prime, churning out only sad shadows of the quality for which it was once famous, it's still hard to say goodbye. The Office might be a few dozen rungs below its Season 2 prime, but the final bow for Dunder-Mifflin is bound to earn a few sweet tears.
On Saturday, the NBC sitcom officially wrapped shooting, closing the doors on the Scranton-based paper company once and for all. The cast and crew hit Twitter to express their sentiments on the end of the line for their Thursday night mainstay.

Getting ready to go to work at Dunder Mifflin for the very last time. It's a sad day for comedy. And paper.

Last day of shooting on The Office. Oof. Kind of hard to act and blubber at the same time.

Angela Kinsey (Angela)
I am so tired but my brain won't shut off. Lots of emotions today. Laughs and tears. Tomorrow is our last day. Very surreal. #theoffice

— Kate Flannery (@KateFlannery) March 16, 2013
Even one former cast member took the time to tweet about the show coming to an end...
Thinking of the cast, crew, writers, et al of "The Office" on your final day of filming. Love you.

Over at Entertainment Weekly, some of the major players shared a few hints about how the characters' stories might end.
Jenna Fisher talks Jim and Pam“I think this year we really portrayed them as a real married couple with real obstacles. People often don’t really deal with change well and Pam didn’t deal with the idea of Jim changing and his job changing. So I’m really proud of us for tackling some of those things in a realistic way and not a soap-opera way.”
Ellie Kemper talks Erin“Erin has a spectacular end that I can’t really tell you about. It involves some amazing people that I also can’t tell you about, but I’m really happy with how we see her in the last episode. … Basically my wishes for her send-off came true.”
Kate Flannery talks Meredith“I think in Meredith’s mind, it’s [a] positive [ending], but I’m not sure everyone else will think [that]. It’s all subject to the crazy reality of Dunder-Mifflin ... I think the fans are going to be really excited. Everyone is going to be very satisfied.”
Leslie David Baker (Stanley) talks the series finale“It’s going to be very heartfelt. It will give you a chance to see what people do when they leave — just like at a real office when people start to go their own separate ways.”
But just because the characters' time together might be coming to a close, that doesn't mean the same will be the case for the actors. Star Ed Helms said, “We hang out as it is, so there will be much more of that ... These are my dearest friends and family.” Yep, there are those sweet tears we were talking about.
