And by friend, I mean character from a TV show.
We all know I have a TV watching problem.**
Dear Michael Scott,
I will miss you sooo much. Yes, sometimes you are annoying and slightly ignorant. But you are also awesome and hilarious and kind. After tonight, watching The Office just won't be the same anymore. I mean, yes, I love Jim, Pam, Dwight, Darryl, Andy, Kelly, Angela and everyone else but something will be missing. I will have to think of it as The Office 2.0....or something. You have given me so much joy over the past 6 years. But all I ever wanted was for you to find happiness, so I can't be too upset to see you go. But seriously, I'm going to cry tonight.
1-Chunky-Michael is the only one to support Pam at her Art Show.
Michael: ...Chunky. Do you want half?
Pam: No thank you.
2-Pretzel Day Sugar High-Micheal eats a pretzel with all the sugary topping available in Initiation and then does some weird moves on his desk chair in his office. I always loved that scene. Then he takes a nap.
3-Michael Hits Meredith With his Car aka Best Season Opener Ever
Michael: Gah. Kind of a good news bad news there. I was able to be on the scene so quickly because I was in the car that hit her.
Jim: Who was driving?
Pam: Oh, Michael.
4-Lady Pants-Michael accidentally buys lady pants and Darryl calls him out in The Negotiation.
Darryl: Are you wearin' lady clothes?
Darryl: Are you wearin' lady clothes? Those look like lady... pants.
Michael: No, this is a power suit.
Darryl: That there's a woman's suit.
5-Sharpie Arm-In Benihana Christmas, Michael cannot remember which of the Asian girls is his new girlfriend so he comes up with a simple solution.
6-"Engaged Ain't Married"-Is this why Jim and Pam actually ended up getting together? I love this scene in Booze Cruise where Jim tells Michael he has a thing for Pam.
Michael: Is somebody there?
Jim: What happened to you?
Michael: Captain Jack has a problem with authority.
Jim: Oh, right, because you announced that his ship was sinking?
Michael: He just totally lost it. If you ask me, he caused the panic.
Jim: What a night.
Michael: Well, it's nice for you. Your friend got engaged.
Jim: She was always engaged.
Michael: Roy said the first one didn't count.
Jim: That's... great. You know, to tell the truth, I used to have a big thing for Pam, so...
Michael: Really? You're kidding me. You and Pam? Wow. I would have never have put you two together. You really hid it well. God! I usually have a radar for stuff like that. You know, I made outwith Jan...
Jim: Yeah, I know.
Michael: Yeah? Yep. Well, Pam is cute.
Jim: Yeah. She's really funny, and she's warm. And she's just... well, anyway.
Michael: Well, if you like her so much, don't give up.
Jim: She's engaged.
Michael: BFD. Engaged ain't married.
Michael: Never, ever, ever give up.
7-Jim and Pam's Wedding-I love the look of pride and joy on Michael's face at the end of the episode right after Jim and Pam get married.
This just barely scratches the surface but these were the ones that first came to my head.
So will you watch Michael's last episode tonight?
What are some of your favorite Michael Scott moments?
***In case you don't know or care, Steve Carell's last episode of The Office is tonight and I'm a bit sad about it. Please bear with me if you hate the Office or don't know what I'm talking about because this kind of took me a long time to write.
