59 Reasons We’re Going To Miss “The Office”

Good-bye, Scranton.

Tonight The Office finishes up its ninth and final season. Over the last nine years, that little paper company and its employees have been a source of swoons, joy, and, of course, laughs. Here are 59 reasons we will miss Scranton’s finest.

20. The Office was home to one of the greatest TV romances of all time.

ID: 1179498

21. And though things haven’t always looked good for them…

ID: 1180145

22. …and there were moments where it seemed like maybe one of them would give up…

ID: 1179509

23. …they were always going to end up together.

ID: 1180153

24. And it was their simple moments that will stick with us.

25. But it wasn’t all romance.

ID: 1179911

26. Sometimes it was nostalgic.

ID: 1179912

27. Sometimes it was surprising.

30. Other times it was about people who cared enough about each other to cheer each other up.

ID: 1179967

31. Sometimes it was about real talk.

ID: 1179855

32. Saying the things that some of us might not want to hear.

ID: 1179856

33. And though the pranks would occasionally go to dark places…

ID: 1179861

34. And some confessions would be disturbing.

ID: 1179863

35. It was always rewarding when dreams came true.

ID: 1179864

36. And even the seemingly least romantic of characters…

ID: 1179859

37. …would eventually show their hearts.

38. And though he’s been gone for a few seasons now, The Office also gave us one of the greatest TV characters of all time, Michael Scott.

ID: 1180205

41. And sometimes inappropriate.

ID: 1180203

42. OK, often inappropriate.
