She was engaged to her ex-fiance Roy, who works in the warehouse, for 3 years before finally ending it when she realized her feelings for her co-worker, Jim. Pam is an artist, and she always wanted to go to art school. She eventually started dating Jim and they got married soon after. They now have 3 kids and attend marriage counseling after a rough couple of months when Jim devoted all his time to his job in Philadelphia. Dunder-Mifflin Dunder-Mifflin is a moderately successful paper company around the world. The Office focuses on the Scranton branch of the company and the people working there. Jim Halpert Jim works as a salesperson at Dunder-Mifflin Scranton. He likes to pull pranks on Dwight when he gets bored, which is very often. Jim has worked at Dunder-Mifflin for a long time, with a desk right next to Pam. He always liked Pam, but didn't say anything, as she was engaged to Roy for 3 years. He's very sarcastic and Michael loves him, though Dwight considers him an enemy. Jim finally tells Pam how he feels, and she rejects him, but she also breaks it off with Roy. Pam and Jim get together later in the series and get married and have 3 children, but go through a bumpy patch in their marriage when Jim gets a job in Philadelphia at a company called Athlead. The Office is a show based off of the original British version. It is based in Scranton, Pennsylvania at a paper company called Dunder-Mifflin, Inc. It is about a documentary being filmed in an paper company office to capture the truth of the American Workplace.

She is embarrassed about her affair with Dwight, and likes to think that no one knows about it. Later on, she gets married to the Senator, who turns out to be gay and having an affair with Oscar. When this becomes public, Angela gets separated from the Senator and has to move in with Oscar, who the Senator also left, to raise her child, who turns out to be Dwight's. Angela is very intolerant of people who don't share her ideas, which is why she was initially attracted to Dwight. They get together in the end of the series and are happily married. Erin Hannon Erin is the young new receptionist brought in when Pam becomes a sales rep. Erin was a foster child who got moved from house to house when she was little, and it has clearly affected her.

Dunder-Mifflin Sabre Sabre takes over the branches of Dunder-Mifflin and the coordinating director Gabe joins the office. Sabre is a very proactive company with lots of new, time-saving ideas, such as blocking YouTube and Twitter on office computers.

When Micheal sees how poorly David's life is going after he left Dunder-Mifflin, he decides to stay with the company despite the new changes. Robert California Robert is the CEO of Sabre with some very unusual business techniques. When he first comes to the Scranton branch office, he makes a list in a little notebooks of the 'winners' and 'losers' of the office.

Gabe dated Erin for a while, making his relationship with Andy strained, but she eventually ended it. He has no social life, as his former boss put him on an insanely demanding schedule, and he is therefore used to working long hours. When Sabre's boss liquidates all of it's assets, Gabe is no longer seen in the office, until Andy rehires him, along with Pete's ex-girlfriend, to make Erin and Pete feel just as awkward as Andy does after Erin breaks up with him.

Micheal immediately thinks of her as the 'New Toby' and proceeds to haze her, until he finds out that she doesn't like Toby either.

They begin a happy relationship, until David Wallace finds out and transfers Holly to the Nashua branch, forcing them to end their relationship. When the two reunite at the company picnic, it is revealed that she is living with her long-term boyfriend A.J., that she has been seeing since she arrived in Nashua. Holly returns to the Scranton office to cover for Toby while he is on jury duty for the Scranton Strangler case, and she eventually ends it with A. J., as he didn't want to commit.
