NBC’s on-air promo for Michael’s farewell to “The Office” promises a lot of teary-eyed moments, and we don’t doubt for a second that we’ll need a tissue or two while we watch the episode Thursday (April 28).
Having watched a few clips from the super-sized episode, though, we can say that it isn’t neglecting the funny in favor of 50 minutes of sentimental goodbyes. Not with discussions about how to survive a bear attack (hint: It’s not a good idea to carry cured meats), the kind of cake the staff should have for Michael’s (Steve Carell) farewell party and Angela’s (Angela Kinsey) state-senator boyfriend.
Those three clips are below. First up is Michael discussing bears with Dwight (Rainn Wilson) on the roof of the office building (Michael’s trying to get used to the altitude in Colorado), followed by his moment with Angela and the Party Planning Committee discussing cakes.
Carell’s last day at “The Office” airs at 9 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.
