There have been numerous very short-lived relationships on “The Office,” which integrated Jim and Katie (Amy Adams), Michael and Helene (Shannon Cochran), and Darryl (Craig Robinson) and Kelly, however they had been slightly minor and did not grasp a lot weight within the grand scheme of items. The shortest primary courting within the collection used to be the only between Jim and Karen Filippelli (Rashida Jones), who coupled up within the Season 3 episode “The Merger.” Whilst it is hinted that the 2 may have begun courting simply prior to the Stamford and Scranton branches of Dunder Mifflin merged, this episode used to be the primary we realized in their courting.
Jim and Karen dated in the course of the finish of Season 3, when Jim breaks up along with her when they each whole (unsuccessful) interviews for a place on the company place of job. Karen at all times knew that Pam used to be Jim’s real love, and he in the end adopted his center on the finish of Season 3 by way of asking her on a date.
Many fanatics of the display in fact preferred Jim and Karen as a pair, and it is totally conceivable they’d have labored out if Pam used to be by no means round. They each loved taking part in pranks and gave the impression to have a good time in combination, however Pam’s looming presence made their courting not possible. Fortuitously, they each get their satisfied finishing: Jim finally ends up with Pam, and Karen marries and has a circle of relatives with a dermatologist named Dan.
Andy and Angela had the second one shortest courting on “The Office,” lasting only a few episodes longer than Jim and Pam. The ex-fiancés started courting in mid-Season 4 and broke up midway thru Season 5 when Andy in the end discovered about Angela’s ongoing affair with Dwight.
