The Office Gives Steve Carell an Extended Farewell Episode

at . Comments

NBC needs longer than 30 minutes to say goodbye to Michael Scott.

The network announced today that Steve Carell's final episode of The Office will be extended to 50 minutes! Parks and Recreation will take that extra 10 and extend into the next half hour, stretching itself for a 40 minute-episode beginning at 9:50 on April 28.

That week's Office is the second part of Michael Scott's farewell, appropriately titled "Goodbye, Michael (Part Two)." The first part airs a week earlier, April 21.

The Office Quotes

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
