The Office - 7x21 - Goodbye, Michael - Jim Halpert (John Krasinski)
"Do I have a special someone? Uh well, yeah of course. A bunch of ‘em. My employees. If I had to choose between a one-night-stand with some stupid cow I pick-up in a bar, and these people? I’d pick them every time. Because with them, it is an everyday stand and I still know their names in the morning."

Tonight was the second-to-last episode of The Office ever. I was incredibly emotional. I’d be lying if
I said I didn’t shed a tear.
I’m aware that The Office is a TV comedy, but this show has awakened so much in me. It showed me what I found funny. That’s a big deal for someone who wants to work in comedy. It taught me to be okay with who I am, like Michael. But most of all, it showed me that it’s possible to find true love like Jim, with a girl who’s a perfect fit, like Pam. Those two are my absolute favorite couple ever. Jim inspired me to hang on just a second longer for “the one”. And although the girl I was holding on for wasn’t my “Pam”, I remain confident that my Pam is out there. One day I’ll meet my receptionist, and we’ll goof around and fall in love and learn so much from having known each other.
From the time that Jim first looked longingly at the receptionist’s desk from his workstation, to the time he first revealed his feelings for her to Michael on the booze cruise, to the time that Jim confessed and put everything on the line to Pam (twice) and was rejected (twice), to the time when Jim moved away and found another girl to distract him, to when he moved back and Pam realized that he was the one for her, to their reveal to the documentary crew that they were dating, to when Jim proposed at a gas station, to when they found out Pam was pregnant, to their secret wedding on a boat at Niagara Falls, to when they started their family, and through their recent rough patch, and acknowledgment that they literally mean the world to each other, I’ve been right there with them. They have what I want, and what I’ll be searching for, even if I search until my dying day.
Goodbye, The Office. You’ve all done more for me than you’ll ever know. Even Toby. And he’s the worst.
One episode left.
