Pam and Jim hang out in the background play fighting. At one point, Jim blocks a light punch and spins Pam around and grabs her in a bear hug. Later, Jim tries to apologize through e-mail, but as is often the case with Jim, the apology or situation must be about him. Roy was in charge of their relationship, and many of his actions made us dislike him, but Pam still went along with what Roy wanted.
A big, abrupt change happened after she called off her wedding with Roy. She expressed and stood up for herself better when she realized she was interested in Jim.
She was excited until Roy discouraged her. As her boyfriend, Jim encouraged Pam to apply and go to Pratt. He helped her reason out why it was a great idea. Pam wanted to quit because she was overwhelmed and missed Jim. She says yes, finally admitting that he is the father of her son Phillip. Despite this, Michael frequently dismisses Dwight and often appears embarrassed by his antics; for much of the series, he also refuses to promote Dwight from "Assistant to the Regional Manager" to "Assistant Regional Manager".
In later seasons, Dwight was shown to return the favor, such as Dwight telling Michael that he would have a better career if he'd taken a job at Home Depot. Several times throughout the series, however, it is revealed that Michael does care about Dwight's feelings, and the two sometimes share bonding moments. In " Training Day ", Dwight is unhappy when the open branch manager position goes to Deangelo Vickersand when he learns that Michael did not recommend him for the job, as he led him to believe, he snubs Michael and goes to a meeting Vickers has called, leaving Michael standing outside, by himself.
In " Goodbye, Michael ", Dwight is still frustrated with Michael, but his hostility turns into heartfelt appreciation as Michael hands him the recommendation letter. At first, the letter does not seem to impress him, but, as he reads through, he realizes that Michael really does respect him.
They are later seen engaging in a friendly paintball fight, and Dwight's loyalty to Michael is once again restored. After Michael left, Dwight did not have the same respect for Deangelo and Andy that Dwight previously had for Michael, implying that Dwight truly respects and values Michael.
In the episode "Finale", as Jim explains that the "Bestest Mench" best man in Dwight's wedding must be older than him, Dwight is disappointed. Michael watches as his "family" is sitting together, and is last seen dancing with Dwight. Jim Halpert[ edit ] Dwight is frequently the victim of practical jokes by co-workers Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly, including putting his desk supplies in the snack machine, putting his stapler into jello, and moving his desk into the men's restroom, although it appears that he remains oblivious to Pam's involvement; these pranks tend to exploit his stubborn and gullible nature.
Dwight's frustration with Jim's pranks reaches a crisis point in " Conflict Resolution ", when Dwight threatens to quit unless Jim is transferred. Professionally, Dwight wins the Salesman of the Year Award, although, this is likely due to, at least in part, his theft of Jim's largest client. In " Traveling Salesmen ", Dwight quits and hugs Jim as a farewell which surprises Jim as he does not know that Dwight quit. Later, Jim is irritated when Andy replaces Dwight and even says that he misses Dwight.
Dwight Schrute - Wikipedia
Earlier in the same episode, Jim and Dwight make an incredibly efficient sales team, functioning well as a duo and thinking similarly in their tactics. The two were paired together when they began as traveling salesmen at the company. In Company Picnic the two embrace in celebration after Dwight sets Jim up to score the final point in volleyball. Jim often supports Dwight when he is genuinely hurt or in danger such as in " Money " and " Last Day in Florida " and occasionally compliments his successes such as in " Dwight K.
Schrute, Acting Manager ". However, when Jim is promoted to co-manager, Dwight's enmity returns to full force, and he conducts an ongoing campaign to depose Jim, who eventually resumes his old job as sales representative in " Manager and Salesman ". The two at first cannot agree on a plan, but eventually trick Packer into thinking he has got a job offer in Tallahassee. This prompts Dwight to overreact, first by stripping down to ward off bugs and then spraying Jim's bed with cleaning chemicals.
However, the ploy works when Kathy exits the room. Jim and Dwight are then shown sharing ice cream and a friendly smile in Dwight's room, while watching TV on his bed, where it is implied Jim will have to stay the night due to the chemicals in his own room, as earlier Dwight suggested Jim stay with Kathy.
In " Last Day in Florida ", Robert California confides to Jim that he's going to terminate Dwight's plans to launch the Sabre store, effectively terminating Dwight's job altogether. Jim tries to let Dwight know, who dismisses his warnings as nothing more than just another prank and insults Jim throughout the day, including in front of the other Sabre staff.
At Pam's insistence, Jim tries to tell Dwight one more time before he's dismissed, just as Dwight is about to accept what he thinks is his promotion in the board room. However, Jim physically attacks Dwight just before he goes in, and the two had a wrestling match to which Jim finally concedes.
When Dwight steps in, he sees that Packer, who has stolen Dwight's promotion in the meantime, takes the fall and is promptly fired by Robert in the meeting. Defeated, Dwight walks out of the boardroom and lends Jim a hand up and returns to Scranton. When Kelly sees Dwight, she mentions that she thought Dwight was staying in Florida, prompting Jim to distract her with a compliment. During season 9's " Dwight Christmas ", Dwight is convinced by Jim to hold a traditional Christmas party in the style of his family.Michael, Jim, Dwight epic scene
Jim must leave before the party is over and Dwight is noticeably emotionally upset when Jim must leave. Later, when Jim returns, Dwight embraces him in a hug.
Soon after, in " Suit Warehouse ", Dwight absent-mindedly says "love you" at the end of a phone conversation with Jim, much to his embarrassment and the bemusement of his coworkers.
In " Livin' the Dream ", the 3rd-to-last episode of the series, Jim suggests to David Wallace that Dwight deserves to replace Andy Bernard as Regional Manager because Dwight loves paper more than anyone else.
David agrees and Dwight is promoted to Regional Manager at the end of the episode as a result; Dwight subsequently appoints Jim to fill his old position, Assistant to the Regional Manager. In the final episode of the series, " Finale ", Dwight asks Jim to be the best man at his wedding. Jim throws Dwight a commendable bachelor party rife with surprises which Jim refers to as "pranks". Before the wedding Jim informs Dwight that, under Schrute tradition, he is not allowed to be best man as he is younger than him.
Jim surprises him with the arrival of Michael Scott. The wedding proceeds in Schrute tradition with Michael as Dwight's new best man.
Later in the episode Jim and Pam tell Dwight they are quitting so Jim can pursue a sports marketing career in Austin, but Dwight fires them instead so he can give them severance packages. Pam Halpert[ edit ] Although she is often involved in Jim's pranks on Dwight, Dwight has, at certain times, displayed a curious sense of protectiveness towards her.
In " Back from Vacation " and " Diwali ", he comforts a tearful Pam, and in " China ", he secretly allows Pam to save face when she feels vulnerable about her job abilities. In " The Job ", Dwight offers Pam the position of "Secret Assistant to the Regional Manager", and following Jim's advice concerning any offers from Dwight to be involved in something secret, she accepts. Though Jim presumably meant this as the opening move of a prank, Pam instead uses it as a bonding opportunity between her and Dwight.
The two briefly become best friends while he suffers a concussion in " The Injury ".
The Office: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Jim And Pam's Relationship
In the season 6 episode " The Delivery ", Dwight shows more signs of his begrudging friendship with Jim and Pam during Pam's pregnancy. In the episode, he is sent to the Halperts' house to retrieve Pam's iPodwhile they are at the hospital. Instead of finding the iPod and bringing it back to her, Dwight completely rebuilds and repaints their kitchen, after discovering mold.
He also advises Pam on how to keep her daughter, Cece, from crying, during " Viewing Party ", by relating his child rearing experiences. Dwight's odd friendship with Pam is explored again in " Doomsday ". At this point, Pam is the only one in the office who is able to understand Dwight's inner feelings, as she successfully convinces him to deactivate his doomsday machine.
It is implied at the end of the episode that Dwight, despite his outward contempt for his coworkers, feels a sense of responsibility and possibly even affection towards them.
In a talking-head interview, in the episode " Tallahassee ", Dwight talks about how first impressions last forever. He recalls that, when he first met Pam, she said something to him that "slightly rubbed [him] the wrong way", and while he has since loved working with her, even stating that she is wonderful, due to that first impression, he hates her.
In the episode "The Whale", Dwight openly tells Pam that he considers her his friend. In the final episode of the series, Dwight refers to Pam as his "best friend", and he ensures that she and Jim get a large severance as they leave Dunder Mifflin.
Andy Bernard[ edit ] As a result of the Scranton-Stamford merger, Dwight loses his number two position to Jim and engages in an ongoing battle with new salesman Andy Bernardto gain Michael's favor for "third-in-command". The struggle comes to a climax in " Traveling Salesmen ". When Andy gets engaged to Angela, Dwight is greatly upset by this, and embarks on an affair with her.
Phyllis eventually lets it slip at a Christmas party that Angela is betraying Andy, yet none of the office members tells Andy for several episodes. That being said, there are some fans who believe they could have been dating since the very first episode of the series.
Much like the long-standing mystery of who started at Dunder Mifflin first between Jim and Pam, fans may never know when Dwight and Angela actually started dating.
Working in HR, Toby would always call out Michael when he did something inappropriate at work, which seemed to happen pretty much every day. Even though Toby would call people out when they did something wrong at work, very rarely did any discipline come from it. One of these times is when Dwight and Angela have their office relationship. Since the relationship had clearly caused conflicts between Andy and Dwight and made everyone else uncomfortable, Toby should have intervened in the relationship but never did.
No wonder Michael hated Toby so much! During the finale, all of the workers at Dunder Mifflin Scranton are seen at the wedding held at Schrute Farms. That being said, would all of them really have been invited? Sure Dwight had developed in the last season and actually considered Jim and Pam his friends, but Angela still seemed cold to many people in the office. Given that it was not only a life-changing day for Dwight, but Angela as well, it is highly unlikely that she would have realistically invited everyone from her work.
He once said he was a Lackawanna County Volunteer Sheriff's Deputy and even got on people who were slacking off at work. Dwight even goes berserk when he finds a random pill in the office and nobody will confess to owning it. Dwight always did everything by the book, but apparently, Dwight reads a different book when it comes to getting advice on relationships and betraying his co-workers.
