After nine seasons, The Office series finale will give the employees of Dunder Mifflin the opportunity to say goodbye to their documentary, which airs this Thursday. We look back at the relationships and moments that made this show so special.

The Office took the mockumentary format that before 2004 was rarely, if at all, a viable television show concept. Over time we’ve come to love these quirky characters: Phyllis with her knitting, Angela with her cats, Creed with his, well, at times, suspicious activity, and Meredith and Kevin and Toby, the list goes on. The humor wasn’t in your face; it was every day, real-life, happens-to-real-people-sometimes humor thrown in with some wacky oh-no-Dwight-set-the-office-on-fire stuff.

Without further adieu, let’s commemorate the folks of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company before The Office finale. We should note that we talk about all nine seasons, so proceed with caution if you’re binging on Netflix right now – though we did mark specific spoilers from last week’s episode.

It should also be noted that there was too much material to adequately cover all nine seasons in this post. It’s hard to sum up all the plot twists and turns and appearances and revelations without writing pages upon pages of material. Think we missed an absolutely important aspect of the show? Let’s discuss in the comments!

Michael Scott

He might have left a couple seasons ago, but Steve Carell’s Michael Scott became somewhat of a pop-culture icon, known for his perplexing, funny, and sometimes heartwarming quotes (see below).

The show found it’s footing in its ensemble cast, however it was Michael Scott, manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton Branch, who became the break-out character the viewers tuned in for. In his quest to be universally liked by everyone in the office, his antics and silly personality often bordered on irritatingly childish or gullible. But when it came down to it, Michael was always there for his employees, ready to give advice (see: his conversation with Jim in the season one episode, “Booze Cruise”) or a supportive hug (see: his attendance of Pam’s art show in the season three episode, “Business School”). There’s no doubt the show suffered once Carell left, because no matter how hard a string of big names tried to replace him, Michael Scott could never be replaced. He also often had the most ridiculous, and therefore, gif-able lines.

The relationships

Jim/Pam

Where to begin with these two. At the beginning, I suppose. Throughout seasons one and two, Pam was engaged to jerk-wad Roy while Jim was forced to watch on the sidelines. Then there was the intimate season two finale kiss that gave Jam shippers hope for these two. But our hopes are dashed in the season three premiere when it’s realized Jim had transferred to a different branch in an effort to distance himself from the pain of watching Pam and Roy continue on with their wedding – which Pam had broken off. Great – they’re both single! But wait! Enter Karen, (Rashida Jones, the reason why a Parks and Rec and Office crossover can never happen) Jim’s new girlfriend, who stays throughout season three. She leaves – well, technically Jim ditches her – in the finale when he adorably interrupts one of Pam’s confessional sessions to ask her out to dinner. Ah, young love.

theoffice5

Season four passes for these two largely without incident, as they continue to develop their relationship. It’s not until the season five premiere Jim proposes to Pam at an unconventional time and location, but it’s passionate and works for these two. During the finale (major Jim/Pam moments seem to book-end the seasons), it’s covertly revealed that Pam is pregnant. Season six was a doozy for these two: they get married in the middle of the season in a spectacular television wedding, and then a few episodes later welcome their first child, Cecilia, into the world. As season seven blends into season eight, they realize they’ve become the boring married couple. But, they’re still in love and adorable. Still, they have a second kid, and things become routine.

Which brings us to the current, and final season. The show waited nine seasons to inject some drama into this relationship, after smooth sailing for so long, Jim and Pam have been doubting themselves and their marriage throughout the season, leaving viewers to think about the possibility of a divorce. Hopefully, the finale doesn’t have any big surprises for these two, but [spoiler] after last week’s tear-inducing final ten minutes that included a montage of their romance, and Jim talking to Dwight about love, I believe they’re going to be okay. They have to be. They’re Jim and Pam.

It was during season seven that the show’s quality began to suffer (and you can dispute me on that, it’s a opinion, though a widely-accepted one), as it coincided with the expansion of a cast of weaker characters (Gabe, Jo) and the departure of Michael Scott.

Dwight/Angela

Without over-simplifying it, these two have been on a nine-season-long lovers tryst. Stolen kisses and other ahem things happened most frequently in the dark corners of the warehouse during office hours, while the documentary film “cameras” were stil rolling. While they often dated other people, it was usually in an attempt to get a jealous rise out of one another. When Angela gave birth to son, Philip, at the beginning of season nine, the show duped viewers into believing it was a Schrute baby, but the paternal test results concluded otherwise she denied he was Dwight’s, but if you watched last week’s episode, [spoiler] you’d know that Angela confessed, Dwight is a dadddy! Cue their road-side engagement (also reminiscent of Jim and Pam’s in season five.)

Andy/Erin & Pete/Erin

When Ellie Kemper joined the cast in season five, she played the naive, innocent secretary part perfectly. Her chemistry with Ed Helm’s Andy was apparent and their courtship injected some energy into the show. Over the past four seasons, they’ve been on-again, off-again partners, until Andy took the three-month boat trip earlier this season, and Pete entered the picture.

The Office has done something that was either well or ill received this season – bring the show around full circle. If all ends well, we’ll see the receptionist and sales guy embarking on a new life together. A storyline that is too similar to Jim and Pam’s to be coincidental.

Jim/Dwight

While these two originally seemed to be more nemeses than friends in the workplace, with the endless pranks on Jim’s side, and Dwight’s endless search for more power than his counterpart, there’s been a shift over the years as they became comrades, partners in crime, and eventually, strangely, close friends. Jim comforted Dwight when Angela agrees to date Andy in season four, arguably the turning point in their friendship that went from occasional competitors on the sales team, to having one another’s backs.

Jim’s Pranks

They started in the pilot and haven’t stopped. Here are a few of the classics.

And then there was the one episode Jim and Dwight engaged in a massive prank battle and, in a role-reversal, Dwight pranked Jim for once.

Ain’t no party like a Scranton party because a Scranton party don’t stop.

Jim’s deadpanned looks to the camera.

After this became a thing on the show, just like the inner-monologue from JD on Scrubs, many people (this author included) pretended their lives were being filmed for the camera. Sometimes it’s fun to just look off into the distance and give a half-smile, and a shrug of the shoulders.

This article could have been a lot longer, and we could’ve dedicated much more time to all the relationships and friendships and memories from the show. If the penultimate episode is any indicator, The Office finale this Thursday is going to be filled with heart-warming moments, and tears, lots and lots of tears.

Be sure to watch the hour-long retrospective at 8pm and the “supersized” 75-minute finale this Thursday on NBC.

That they are, Jim, that they are.

Hypable sat down with Transparent‘s Judith Light and Jeffrey Tambor to discuss the life-changing experience of telling one of TV’s most compelling stories.

“You may be laughing at her, but your heart may be breaking too.” This single line from Jeffrey Tambor sums up Amazon Prime’s Transparent. Entering its third season, the break out comedy from writer, director, producer Jill Soloway pulls you into the Pfefferman family and delivers a gut punch straight from the start.

This is nothing new for the streaming series, but somehow you keep going back for more. Season 3, now available on Amazon Prime, is no different. In fact, the first episode alone demands you to pause the auto-play feature and take a deep breathe to process. The entire show is about processing, reflecting, and growing. Actions are quick, mistakes are lofty, but the aftermath, where the processing begins, is where the show lives and thrives.

In fact, the first episode alone demands you to pause the auto-play feature and take a deep breathe to process. The entire show is about processing, reflecting, and growing. Actions are quick, mistakes are lofty, but the aftermath, where the processing begins, is where the show lives and thrives.

Nothing is done for a laugh. Rather the laughs of this “comedy” arrive out of discomfort, the kind of laugh that breaks the silence at an awkward family dinner because your mind and body don’t know what else to do.

transparent season 3

Ahead of Tambor’s second consecutive Emmy win for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Hypable sat in on a roundtable conversation with Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light. They both spoke with such care for the show and gratitude for their characters Maura and Shelly. “Maura is not a character you just put down and walk away from. She stays with me and it’s invited,” said Tambor.

The comfort and trust that filled the space between the two actors was palpable. The duo began their careers together over 30 years ago and yet it took Transparent to push them both well beyond their comfort zone with the infamous bath scene from season 2. Slight spoilers for season 2 ahead.

“I went to Jill and told her I was terrified,” Light said. The scene takes place one night in the midst of Maura and Shelly’s cohabitation as the pair are going through their nightly routines. Maura’s transition left Shelly without the one person she felt cosmically bound to and yet here she was in her bathroom. Trying to recapture the sexual spark of their relationship, Maura crosses a personal boundary she didn’t know she created with herself and gave Shelly a fleeting feeling that maybe everything doesn’t have to change.”

transparent bath scene

In order to create that feeling of intimacy and close in on just Maura and Shelly in that moment, Jill Soloway cleared the entire building, including video village.

“Before we started, [Jill] had us all stand there and take a moment of silence that the scene would be received in the way we wanted to give it. Which was to talk about something that was not talked about forever, as far as I can tell, in the way of mature people and their sexuality,” said Light.

Light, Tambor, and Soloway all wondered how an audience would react to such a scene. Those fears were quickly put to rest as Light explained, “People responded from every generation in the most excited and generous way. We think we know what people want to see and then you have a show like Transparent and you realize they really do want to see that.”

History plays a large role in the Pfefferman family dynamic. Not just the shared history of long nights around the dinner table and cancelled bat mitzvahs, but rather inherited family trauma. Shelly and Maura dive into their personal histories and the history of their shared relationship in season 3, exploring through flashbacks what drew them together.

Season 3 leaves room for a noticeable change in focus, leaning on Shelly finding her voice. While this may be something that will cause viewers to cringe at the mere thought of, it was a shift that Tambor embraced for his counterpart.

“Freedom is very powerful and when it does happen sometimes you don’t know the boundaries… Of course [Shelly] is going to go on Twitter, of course she is going to go on the back of a motorcycle because she is free,” said Tambor.

Light expanded to include, “[Shelly] doesn’t see that everyone is rolling their eyes at her in some way or another, but that is what I think is so powerful about the show and Jill’s brilliance in the show — creating somebody who is very human and very flawed in so many different ways… This is one of those stories where somebody is coming into one of their own their own voice and doing it very clumsily and very badly.”

Freedom to explore her own transformation in light of Maura’s move to pull away from her leads Shelly to give temple talks and explore what her personal rebranding under the handle, “To Shell and Back” could do for her. Tambor continued, “This is a woman who could not make up her mind to what channel her husband would like, so thank God she is on Twitter and making these mistakes.”

transparent light shelly

There is an important conversation both Light and Tambor agree needs to come of the relationship between Shelly and Maura — acceptance of other’s true authentic self, whatever that may mean. Light explained, “Maura has allowed herself to be oppressed by society and live in an oppressive society. It took her 70 years to come out and be her authentic self and it’s something we need to be discussing more because it’s the topic of how we relate to each other or how we relate badly to each other.”

Going forward into season 3, Transparent places Mort and Shelly in pre-transition life where the kids argued over the name of a pet turtle and even further back where Mort, at age 12, began to realize the weight of the struggle that comes with feeling trapped in the wrong body.

Echoing his earlier sentiments about playing Maura, Tambor explained what it was like going back and playing Mort, a task he had not done since season 1. “I found myself saying, ‘I have trouble doing it.’ I felt very actory, but I felt very, very comfortable as Maura… these are not characters you put down at night or during the summer, they stay with you.”

Tambor carries Maura with him every day, opting to wear her ring on his pinkie all year round. “She’s so profound and it’s such a profound change in all of our lives.”

What else can we expect to see in season 3 between Maura and Shelly? Light revealed a takeway about their relationship saying, “They always have their eye on each other. They are always on each other’s radar. I don’t think that is going to go away… When Maura says the things that she does, they either hurt or they remind Shelly of how much love there is between the two of them.”

Transparent seasons 1-3 are now available to stream on Amazon Prime.

I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.”
