Jenna Fischer talks about 'The Office' and what comes next

Jenna Fischer, who for nine seasons played warm-hearted office drone Pam Beesly-turned-Halpert on NBC's "The Office," joined us for a video chat Thursday morning to reminisce about the comedy as it anticipates whether its final-hurrah season gets recognition this awards season.

"The Office" ended its run in May. The comedy, which seemed doomed in its beginning, would go on to become the pillar of NBC's Thursday night prime time.

Seated in her sublet apartment in NYC — squeezing in time before taking the stage on Neil LaBute's "Reasons to Be Happy" — Fischer reflected on life after bidding the Dunder Mifflin offices adieu (yes, she's still texting her co-stars), what props from set she sneaked into her purse, and the marital hiccup between Jim and Pam that had its legion of supporters on edge. Also, if you're like us, you'll get a kick out of learning what impressions John Krasinski does well.

We even got Fischer, who's looking to take a bit of a breather from showbiz to focus on mommyhood, to give us one more "Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam" greeting.

Go on, watch.
