Fans of The Office know all about the famous teapot Jim gave to Pam for Christmas in season two. They also know he included a card with his true feelings for Pam inside the teapot, only to remove it before she sees it. In a big moment in the final season, Pam finally gets a chance to read the card, though viewers do not. So what was on the actual card? In the latest episode of her podcast Office Ladies with co-star Angela Kinsey, actress Jenna Fischer sheds some light, reports Mashable. It turns out that actor John Krasinski, who played Jim, wrote a personal note to Fischer about their time together on the show, per BuzzFeed.

"I'm going to say something that I've never said before—I also feel like I'm maybe going to cry," Fischer says on the podcast. "I'm the only one who knows [what was written in the note] and John knows." Fischer thinks showrunner Greg Daniels told Krasinski to write the genuine note—from John to Jenna, not from Jim to Pam. "So I'm on camera and I open up this note that John's written me and I just start crying, I just start bawling," she recounts. "The first take was probably not usable," she adds. "It was the sweetest note, and you know on camera Pam says, 'I'll never say what it said but just know it was perfect?' Well, I'll never say exactly what John wrote, but I will say just know it was perfect." (Michael Scott's spy thriller is now available for viewing.)
