We'll never be done talking about The Office. Lucky for us, Jenna Fischer isn't, either, and she's continuing to drop behind-the-scenes nuggets like it's nothing.

The latest is the disclosure of what Pam Beesly (Fischer) said off-mic to Michael Scott (Steve Carell) in the Season 7 episode "Goodbye, Michael." In the scene, Pam catches up to her old boss in the airport right before he gets on his plane, embraces him, and says something to him that the documentarians' microphones don't pick up.

In an Instagram live post Tuesday, Fischer revealed that it was sort of a blend of Pam talking to Michael and Jenna talking to Steve. She improvised some dialogue about how much Michael/Steve meant to Pam/Jenna.

"That was me talking to Steve," she said in the video. "I told him all the ways I was going to miss him when we left our show. Those were real tears and a real goodbye. That was a really emotional scene."

The reveal came during a Q&A with her followers, in which she also revealed her favorite Office episodes ("Dinner Party" and "Health Care").

Fischer's Instagram is a treasure-trove of Office-related content. Yesterday she posted a photo of a reunion of the members of the Finer Things Club with Ed Helms, Paul Lieberstein and Oscar Nunez.

Fischer currently stars on ABC's sitcom Splitting Up Together, which airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c, while The Office remains available for you to stream on Netflix for the 15th time.
