It’s been nearly five years since The Office ended, but Jenna Fischer is still answering questions about her role as Pam Beesly.
In an Instagram live video on Tuesday, Fischer answered one of the lingering questions fans still have to this day: What did Pam say to Michael in Season 7’s touching episode, “Goodbye, Michael?”
In Steve Carell’s farewell episode, Michael says goodbye to everyone in the office except Pam, who was busy running an errand.
Pam was MIA because she thought Michael wasn’t leaving until the next day, but once Jim found out Michael was catching a flight to Colorado to live with his fiancé later that night he brought Pam to the airport to make sure the two got to part ways properly.
Pam and Michael meet up and exchange words, but no one could hear what was said because neither of them were wearing their mics (it was supposed to be a documentary, remember?).
“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,” Fischer told her Instagram followers. “That was a really emotional scene.”
BRB, crying all over again. If you want to re-experience the touching moment with this new knowledge you can watch the entire scene below, but you might want to have some tissues handy.
Fischer was also asked to reveal her favorite episode, a question to which she had a very thorough answer.
“I just watched ‘Branch Wars’ from Season 4 and I was kind of loving it,” she said. “But my ultimate favorite is ‘Dinner Party.'”
How great is it to know that the entire cast is just as obsessed with that episode as fans are?
Fisher went on to give the “Health Care” episode in Season 1 a shoutout, along with the episodes after Pam gave birth. The actress revealed she loves when Pam nurses the wrong baby in “The Delivery,” sharing that her IRL husband was in the episode.
Long live the Dunder Mifflin fam.
