You’re going to take some swings and misses, and you can’t be afraid of it. You can’t get paralyzed by “It has to be perfect.”
- Tina Fey [born May 18, 1970]
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LOVELY LADY!
ME TOO, TOBY. ME TOO.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. The time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. Let me see your face. Let me hear your voice. For your voice is sweet, and your face is comely.
Though Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, and John Krasinski got most of the attention and big laughs, the series’ true MVP was Jenna Fischer. She could land a good frustrated look with the best of them, but her vulnerability and warmth provided the series its humanity. Her character changed the most organically throughout the series’ life, and in a very unshowy way, she provided a center that made these characters seem like an ad hoc family, not just a collection of types. So it’s appropriate she uttered the final words we heard as we move from her taking the painting she drew of Dunder Mifflin off the wall, to Michael Scott placing it on the wall after buying it at her art show years ago, to a final image of Dunder Mifflin itself.
“I thought it was weird when you picked us to make a documentary, but all in all, I think an ordinary paper company like Dunder Mifflin was a great subject for a documentary. There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?”

They did the most beautiful job of giving me everything I wanted. Everything I wanted for the characters and everything I wanted emotionally, to send off this show. The way Steve’s return was handled was masterful, never overshadowing the show’s goodbye but respecting the deep…
