Exclusive Office Video: Look Back at 8 Seasons of Dunder Mifflin Fun – Michael Scott Included!

Tearjerker alert! On the eve of The Office‘s ninth and final season premiere, NBC has unveiled an emotional, hilarious and all-around wonderful montage of the comedy that put “That’s what she said!” on the map.

Here, TVLine exclusively debuts the retrospective and offers you some sage advice: Keep your Kleenex — and possibly a loved one — handy while watching.

From “The Dundies” to “Beach Day” to “Goodbye, Michael,” the three-minute lookback — which leaves no Dunder Mifflin stone unturned — should most certainly achieve its goal of reminding viewers why they’ve long loved the NBC series and won’t want to miss how it all ends in May.

Overall, the German-spouting Dwight Schrute said it best: “That’s not a bad team. Perfectenschlag.”

  • I’m really going to miss The Office when it ends. It might not be as good as it once was but it still manages to make me laugh and put a smile on my face. That video brought a little tear to my eye!

  • Oh wow, my heart hurts a little after seeing that. The last few seasons may not have been great, but I really have loved this show. It came on right when I was finishing up college and getting out in the real world, dealing with my first office job, and I really connected to it. I’m really going to miss it. I hope Greg Daniels and co. manage to end it on a high note!

  • Even though the quality has been slipping since Season 6, I still love this show to death. It’s gonna be weird not watching it on Thursdays anymore :( Nine years is pretty impressive though. Not many shows these past few decades have made it that far.

  • Best comedy show ever. Cudos to all the cast and crew for all you did. You made me laugh, you made me cry, you made me happy and you made me shy. Thank you for all that. I will miss you all. One more thing, laughter thru tears is the best!!! I applaud you all.

  • *Wipes eyes* Awwww. What a lovely tribute. Even though it’s best for the show to have this be its last season, it’s still always sad when a show you’ve come to love and enjoy watching decides to end.

  • It just reminds me of how much that show relied on Carell. It should have ended when he left.

  • I never thought I would abandon the show after season 7, I couldnt take it anymore. The whole Andy boss thing is brutal. I will watch the last season though. I watch reruns on netflix every frickin day.

  • you KNOW Michael is coming back for the finale.

  • Awesome video! I think I was too busy laughing at the funny parts to cry at the sweet parts and the fact that this show is ending. Wasn’t too happy with season 8 but it had its moments and as a loyalist with my TV shows, I will watch this to the end. It’s still a pretty dang good one. And to echo everyone’s statements: Michael Scott better make an appearance before May. Maybe even in the finale?
