"So Steve, this week marked a huge anniversary for you and I," Krasinski said after introducing his guest. "We were on a little show called The Office and it turned 15 years old this week."

Krasinski revealed that he, like the rest of the cast, wasn't sure if the show was going to be picked up.

"I was a waiter when I got that job, I was 23 years old," he reflected. "After the pilot, I went back to waiting tables because I was sure nothing was going to happen with it."

"We all kind of came into it with that vibe. I remember none of us had done anything huge," Krasinski added.

'It's such a happy surprise that after all these years people are still tuning in and finding it today, it's pretty cool,' Carell agreed.

The former castmates also reflected on their favorite behind-the-scenes moments.

"Some of the most fun memories, personally or professionally, are intertwined and connected with that show," Carell mentioned.

As far as their favorite moment goes, the pair agrees it was filming the "Dinner Party" episode when Jan breaks Michael's plasma TV.


Another highlight for Krasinski was when Carell's character, Michael Scott, was competing to be 'The Office' Santa.

"I remember when we did the episode where you played Santa and were very upset that Phyllis was already Santa," he said. "So you were asking people to come sit on your lap and Brian [Baumgartner], thank God, was chosen to sit on your lap. I was supposed to be the button of the scene where they cut to me and make a Jim face."


"I was never there, I was physically never there because by the time they got swish pan to me, I was out. I was either on the floor or I left the room," John added.

The pair eventually got sappy.

"Listen I know everyone's talking about a reunion, hopefully one day, we just get to reunite as people. And just all get to say hi," Krasinski said.

'Just to see your face is so great. I miss you a ton man,' Carell told Krasinski.
