The Moment: Michael Scott Returns (from "Finale")
What? You thought Michael Scott was going to miss Dwight and Angela's wedding? Come on! That's not Michael Scott. But still, viewers weren't sure if Steve Carell might not have better things to do than cameo on the "Office" finale. Nope! In a well-constructed scene, Jim explains to Dwight that he has to abdicate the responsibilities of bestich mensch, but that he's found a replacement. "Michael, I can't believe you came." "That's what she said." "Best prank ever." Michael Scott's return was just one of many great moments in an "Office" finale that erased a lot of bad memories from the bumpy stretches in the comedy's waning years. I could just as easily have taken Dwight calling Pam his best friend as the standout moment here, but Steve Carell's return to the show that helped make his career was probably the bigger moment, if not necessarily more emotional.
