“The Office” is remembered as one of the funniest, most endlessly quotable, binge-worthy sitcoms in recent history. Of course, it could also pack an emotional wallop, and one such moment was so emotional, in fact, it was quite difficult to shoot.
The one scene that “The Office” cast almost couldn't film came during Season 7. To bid their boss adieu, the employees of the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin serenade Michael with a personalized version of "Seasons of Love" from the musical “Rent.”
By the time the song wraps up, everyone is nearly in tears, with Michael's eyes visibly welling up. As it happens, those tears weren't just for show, as “The Office” director Paul Feig revealed that the scene was "so emotional" to film that the cast was getting incredibly choked up during shooting.
