    Known for his role as Jim, John Krasinski recently appeared on his co-actors Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey’s rewatch podcast ‘Office Ladies‘. The trio talked for hours reminiscing about their days on NBC’s Emmy-winning comedy series.

    During the conversation, Krasinski recalled his last day on the show when creator Greg Daniels, whom he called an “evil genius,” took the cast to film a scene at the cast’s beloved dive bar, Poor Richard’s. After several takes, Krasinski remembered walking out of the set for the last time and seeing the entire crew gathered together.

    I’m choking up just talking about it,” Krasinski said during the podcast conversation. “When you come back in and see your TV dad and all of your family waiting there and clapping, and [Greg] said, ‘That’s the end of The Office,’ I think the color black came out of my mouth. It was just the scariest, most beautiful, horrific moment of my life,” the actor added.

    However, soon after this emotional farewell, Krasinski revealed he took the Dunder Mifflin company sign along with him and never gave it back. “I’ve always lied to Greg that I didn’t take it, but I did. I stole it,” he confessed on the show.

    The podcast host Angela Kinsey, who played the character Angela on the show, also recalled seeing Krasinski hiding the sign in the back of his car after his confession. The actress called it “one of her favorite memories” from the final day of filming of ‘The Office‘.

    I was like, don’t look over here!” Krasinski remembered. “It wasn’t quite dark enough, so it just looked like I was putting a body in a car,” he said.

    Krasinski then revealed that Daniels later confronted him at ‘The Office‘ wrap party about stealing the sign. In response, Krasinski feigned ignorance. “He goes, ‘Aw, that was the one thing I wanted,’” the actor recalled telling him during the party.

    Kinsey also admitted that though she knew he had stolen the sign, she “never told anyone” about it. “Well, now you did. You told everyone. And I was dressed like a cat burglar,” Krasinski joked in response.
