'The Office' Spent How Much On Jim's Proposal Scene?


"The Office" may have ended in 2013, but we're still learning so much about the behind the scenes of the hit series.

In an episode of the "Office Ladies" podcast, Jenna Fischer (who played Pam) and Angela Kinsey (also Angela in the series) dished about the show's most expensive scene in all nine seasons.

Do you have your guess ready?

If you thought it was the proposal between Jim and Pam then you'd be right! The ladies explained that the scene cost $250,000 to shoot and the gas station set took nine days to build.

"To create the illusion of highway traffic, they built a four-lane circular racetrack around the gas station set," said Fischer. "They set up cameras on the other side of this raceway and they had cars drive around it at 55 miles an hour. Then they added rain pouring down on us [with] these giant rain machines. Our production manager, Randy Cordray, said they had about 35 precision drivers. They were driving not just cars, but like, semi-trucks. When we were standing there on that set, you could feel the wind, like, of these cars speeding past you. It was so, so bonkers." 

Okay, that sounds pretty intense for just one scene, but also SO WORTH IT FOR ALL THE FEELS IT GAVE US!
