Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert will forever be considered one of television’s most beloved couples.
Over the course of nine seasons, we watched as the Dunder Mifflin coworkers went from crushing coworkers to adoring spouses, heating up “The Office” with their undeniable #Relationship Goals.
True, he was dating Karen at the time, but Karen is also who he left stranded in New York after a job interview, so that’s not a valid excuse for not going. They are bullying Dwight, this is true, but it is bullying nonetheless.
"For a while, we were all thinking about applying to a restaurant close to the studio, so that at a moment's notice we could go work over there.

I’m sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine the acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became that popular onscreen—and I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship.
