Carroll Alum, 'Office' Star, Looks Back on Hit

The final episode of 'The Office,' which aired Thursday, isn't just a difficult goodbye for the long-running NBC sitcom's die hard fans. It marks a major turning point for the cast too.

In an interview with Philly.com, America's favorite fictional alcoholic, Ardmore native Kate Flannery, opened up about her humble beginnings and her favorite moments from what was she said was the best, and longest, job of her life.

Here's what the Archbishop John Carroll High School graduate said when asked about her favorite episode of the show:

Favorite episode ever, from Meredith's perspective?

"I'm going to have to say 'Moroccan Christmas,' where Michael Scott [Steve Carell] basically decides to hold an intervention during a Christmas party, literally dragging [Meredith, whose hair caught fire in the episode] into rehab. And that episode was directed by Paul Feig, who directed 'Bridesmaids.' "
