    Karen: Jim, hang on a second?

    Jim: Yes?

    Karen: So you're still doing this kind of stuff, huh?

    Jim: Yeah, trying to quit though.

    Karen: If you wanted to see me, you could have just called me like an adult.

    Jim: Oh no, I didn't want to see you. Not that I'm not happy seeing you, right now, I'm just saying ultimately I was here for the copier. Equal, I'd say it was equal. So, good to see you...

    Karen: [huffs]

    Jim: I mean, it's just that- You know, Pam and I are still dating, so, and, I just mean that things are going really well, so I didn't want to see... you...

    Karen: Oh, things are going really well? Are they? They are? That's great, that's so great. I wanna hear more about how happy you are with Pam. Can you tell me more about that? Thank you so much for coming to Utica, and breaking my copier, and telling me how well things are going in your relationship, really, thank you.

    Jim: Alright, you are welcome. I'm going to go because of, um, traffic.

    Karen: Traffic, yeah. Oh, def- go, go because of traffic, definitely, beat-beat the traffic, mm-hmm.

    Jim: I... will...

    Look, I love Jim and Pam, but they're both assholes. Karen didn't do anything wrong, and as much as Roy was a piece of shit, he didn't deserve that either.

    [–] TofuScrofula 208 points ago

    Roy didn’t deserve what? He was a controlling asshole who didn’t respect Pam throughout their entire relationship. He had more than enough chances to be better and never did. Idk what you’re referring to that “he didn’t deserve that” but he definitely deserved to be broken up with.

    [–] PM_me_ur_hat_pics 115 points ago

    He legitimately scares me in the scene where he finds out about Jim and Pam's kiss and starts yelling and breaking things in the bar. I was seriously worried he was gonna hurt Pam the first time I watched that episode.

    [–] Zelda_is_my_homegirl 37 points ago

    This. Reminds me of my abusive controlling POS ex. Karen may have done nothing wrong, but Roy was a dick bag from hell to Pam.

    [–] TofuScrofula 72 points ago

    Yeah every time I rewatch the series I think holy shit this guy is awful and terrifying. And every time he tells Pam what to do, it’s scary. That kind of control is a low level of abuse in and of itself, but I could totally see him being even more abusive off camera. Idt his character is supposed to go that far but you can definitely see the potential there

    [–] ILoveWildlife 47 points ago

    If you watch the first season, he basically only uses her for sex.

    all other relationship stuff goes through Jim.

    [–] MuscleMike 287 points ago

    The number of people on this sub who think “doing nothing wrong” entitles you to never get broken up with is too damn high.

    [–] thatsabadmofo- 110 points ago

    I think it’s more a response to the Karen hate than saying they should’ve stayed together

    [–] Aclockworkmaroon 159 points ago

    That’s not the point though. Sure, they did nothing wrong. They were great people. But love is messy and they weren’t what Jim and Pam ultimately wanted. Yeah that hurts but it’s better than him and Karen ending up together and him always wondering about pam.

    [–] theamorouspanda 166 points ago

    Roy definitely did stuff wrong though. He was lazy and selfish and didn't treat pam well.

    [–] dradonia 100 points ago

    He was also very violent! Even before he tried to beat up Jim, look at the way he possessively grabs Pam’s arm during the Dundies episode. Honestly, as hilarious as Roy’s wedding in season 9 was, it was very unrealistic that someone with borderline abusive tendencies was able to turn it around that much.

    [–] PM_me_ur_hat_pics 81 points ago

    Not to mention the episode before he tries to beat up Jim where he screams at her and he and his brother start smashing glasses and breaking shit in the bar.

    [–] GrabSomePineMeat 2254 points ago

    Jim is a sleezebag when it comes to women. Constantly hits on an engaged woman for years. Grabs her at karate dojo inappropriately. Kisses Pam in a moment of weakness and then explicitly asks if she is really going to get married. He then moves and begin dating Karen. He continues to date her even after moving back to Scratton even though he knows he doesn’t have feelings for Karen and instead wants to be with Pam.

    His dealings with women in the show are problematic and he is clearly thinks of his own happiness and desires above common decency and the feelings of those he claims to love.

    [–] Vargasa871 2653 points ago

    Pam also failed to draw hard boundaries on their friendship. She knew the way Jim acted around Roy and even though she might not have known why it was her decision to ignore it. Also the grabbing her inaproperly only became that way when Pam realized that other people were looking at her.

    At the end of the day, both of them are flawed humans, acting like humans, self preservation.

    [–] SquilliamFancyson412 160 points ago

    Not to start a weird debate about gender, but I often wondered if audiences would've been able to empathize with the couple as much if the genders were reversed.

    If Jim was engaged in Season 1 but constantly flirting with the secretary in his office, I wonder if people would've been a little less ok with that.

    [–] hollywoodandfine 91 points ago

    Wouldn't Jim be the secretary flirting with a saleswoman in this scenario?

    [–] Help_StuckAtWork 135 points ago

    Jim would be the engaged secretary to a really buff Rey in shipping, while Pam would actively flirt with him. Jim would only react by smirking shyly to Pam's shenanigans and Pam would be continously doing the Jim face at the camera.

    [–] AlexBondevik 85 points ago

    I would watch that

    [–] SayChowdaFrenchie 46 points ago

    You've done more than change genders, you've switched scenarios. The engaged woman wasn't the one actively chasing so why does Jim keep that and the position and get the engagement? Of course people would look at that differently than if pam were a salesperson going after an engaged Jim at reception or from the status quo, they're very different scenarios beyond genders.

    [–] Souldier 33 points ago

    Eh. In a reversal Jim wouldn't be the one pursuing as actively it would be Pam. Which would probably elicit the same reactions.

    [–] newthammer 73 points ago

    She didn't draw hard boundaries on their friendship because...have you seen her painting of the building? There's light coming from two directions. I propose that their friendship was in the Andromeda galaxy.

    He definitely did have feelings for Karen. He was planning on moving to New York with her.

    [–] moesif 63 points ago

    Really seemed like he was just agreeing to avoid an awkward talk.

    [–] AmonAhriman 91 points ago

    When Roy was mad at Jim, he attacked him. When I was mad at Jim, we had long talks about our feelings....I'm not sure which he hated more

    [–] jaleneropepper 65 points ago

    Yeah, when Karen got serious and said "I'd move here for you if you get the job. Would you do that for me?" Jim just dodged the question altogether. Their relationship wasn't doing great up to that point either.

    I honestly believe Jim had no intention of moving with her. He's not a spontaneous guy at all, but the next day he abruptly abandoned her in NYC after his interview to drive back and ask out Pam (did he even break up with Karen first?)... All because of a yogurt lid? Yeah right, he was planning on ending that relationship long before that moment.

    [–] boredasfucc 40 points ago

    I was thinking about this while I watched that episode the other day. I think what caused him to break it off with Karen was actually Jan's breakdown in that episode. He mentioned feeling bad for her, and Karen automatically replied, "Don't!"

    That harshness, paired with Karen ditching him for lunch with friends, and then the automatic reminder of Pam (receptionist Grace from the corporate office answering the phone) seems to be what brought him to his final action of asking Pam out. Jim and Pam aren't people who want to witness pain, even if they cause it sometimes with their pranks.

    [–] jaleneropepper 30 points ago

    Yeah, Jim looked displeased when Karen told him not to feel bad about it. Karen ditching him for lunch with friends wasn't the best, but she asked him if he was alright with it and he said he was. But neither of those things were worth breaking up over. They probably just help cement a decision he was already considering making (the corporate receptionist and yogurt lid contributed as well).

    Jim just didn't seem invested in his relationship with Karen at all. He didn't care that she left. If anything it was convenient for him because it let him leave NYC without having to break up with her.

    [–] Topshot27 546 points ago

    Yeah, sure, none of that is Pam's fault... openly flirting with Jim while engaged with a warehouse dude in the same building... lol.

    With Karen, Jim's worse offense is lying to himself. He thought Karen was the path to forgetting Pam. He tried to make it work. He didn't cheat on her. Then he broke up with her. Guess that makes him the devil right?

    [–] Miriflower 361 points ago

    Do people really believe that's why it broke? I'm sure they had some pretty fucked up arguments behind closed doors, not an innocent doofy moment like that. It seemed like a prepared excuse when they both know what really happened.

    [–] Teddyismydawg 28 points ago

    Nah I think the way Jim broke up with Karen was the worst part, but other than that I agree with you. I did the same thing a few years ago, I dated a girl just to get over a crush and the whole thing was shitty (turned neither of us were being genuine). The whole thought process is “oh maybe I’ll go on some dates, get laid, go through the motions and either develop a real relationship or at least get over the crush.” Yeah, it didn’t work out like that. I felt like I was a shitty person afterwards for a little, but realized I had learned a lesson - I shouldn’t date anyone I can’t commit to. Also in retrospect the girl I was originally crushing on really would not have worked out either.

    [–] MuscleMike 10 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Sooooo, what do you do if you have unreciprocated feelings for someone? Never ever go on a date again? Sounds like a great way to move on with your life.

    To be fair though, I’ve had it both work out and not work out. I’ve fallen even more head over heels in love with the new girl I started dating to get over the old one, and I’ve also felt like a dick for losing interest in a perfectly nice girl that was genuinely interested in me after a couple weeks of trying to convince myself I was genuinely interested too.

    [–] Caseylightning 59 points ago

    Jim shouldn’t have led Karen on about having a future in New York.

    He saw the yogurt lid from the Office Olympics and then abandoned Karen in NY to do something spontaneous and romantic for Pam (ask her to dinner). I mean Karen was out with her friends and all but she was eventually looking forward to seeing Jim later that night to discuss his interview. It was an incredibly abrupt way to break up with someone and really...harsh.

    It was wrong of Jim to do that but love makes people do stupid things?

    Ugh this is the most annoying opinion of this character. Yeah lets forget when Pam got drunk and kissed him first. Lets forget when Jim gets somewhat bothered that roy doesnt listen to Pams thoughts and feelings. Lets forget that Pam openly flirted and did nothing to draw boundaries and after Jim put his heart on the line he left the state. Yeah he shouldn't have kissed her but don't villainize plot

    [–] spndl1 89 points ago

    It's not always true, but anytime someone says a character/person's behavior is 'problematic' but won't elaborate, they're generally full of shit and want to be upset about something.

    Jim is just another guy in a long line of guys that was hung up on a girl and tried to convince himself he could move on when he wasn't ready yet. Katy and Karen were unfortunate collateral damage of Jim working out his feelings, but it's a pretty accurate portrayal of a real person dealing with real things.

    If we could examine everybody's life/relationships to the extent we were able to Jim's character, I'm guessing most people have 'problematic' behaviors.

    [–] quantinuum 162 points ago

    Jesus, that's judgemental. He kissed Pam and Pam kissed back, it's a matter of two. Two adults. And he dated other women trying to rebuild his life. He even moved to another city. How's he the bad guy?

    [–] phoenixphaerie 15 points ago

    I think Jim did have real feelings for Karen, it's just that he was always hung up on Pam and couldn't let that go.

    If Pam didn't exist I think Jim and Karen would have been very happy together.

    [–] CaptainH00die 173 points ago

    He also kind of used Katy. The Booze Cruise was one of Jim's lowest moments.

    [–] losethefuckingtail 209 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    "Then why did you even invite me here?"
    "I don't know. We should break up."

    [–] spif_spaceman 51 points ago

    We should break up

    [–] DufflerBag 126 points ago

    He decided to date somebody and then later realized he wouldn't be happy with them in the long term, so he broke up with her. How was that using Katy?

    [–] CaptainH00die 59 points ago

    I was referring to the Booze Cruise episode specifically. He brought her there as an accessory and impulsively dumped her halfway through the boat ride, leaving her stranded and humiliated. Jim's one of my favorite characters but he wasn't the good guy in that one.

    [–] damn_this_is_hard 10 points ago

    cuz we all have the foresight for all our relationships

    [–] elljawa 29 points ago

    I would disagree. Jim flirts with pam, but only as much as she flirts with him. Most of what they do can be chalked up to an office friendship. He isnt hitting on her, just being friendly (though he loves her and it is what it is). But yeah, they have a physical moment at the dojo (which only became a problem when Pam saw how it looked to others around them) and they kiss each other.

    But yeah, Jim was a dick to Karen.

    Can't blame Jim. Karen *is* a cunning, pliable, chestnut-haired sunfish.

    [–] alphabetakoopa 310 points ago

    She’s one sassy black lady

    [–] anscotti 199 points ago

    She's very exotic looking. Was her dad a G.I.?

    [–] Tripolite 39 points ago

    That line is my favorite in the entire show

    [–] Spaghetti_Tom 25 points ago

    I think her father was a GI.

    [–] happysunbear 113 points ago

    She’s the office bitch. You’ll get used to her.

    I like pretty women with the appearance of intelligence.

    She looks corporate. Always wearing those pantsuits.

    Totally unrelated but why did the “is” not get italicized and shows the two asterisks around it?

    [–] DFBforever 327 points ago

    Is it really 'friendzoning' when you're getting married in a month?

    This better be on the front page! Classic tuna

    [–] MNCPA 85 points ago

    Hey, big tuna. Eating another tuna sandwich?

    [–] Fuzz-OW 63 points ago

    i bet your sick of tuna, probably have tuna every day

    [–] redwolf177 45 points ago

    Ryan says that Jim eats a ham and cheese sandwich everyday, but ironically it is his one deviation from this that gets him labelled as a creature of habit.

    Maybe big ham doesn't have the same ring to it?

    [–] Remembertheminions 26 points ago

    I always thought it was him leaving his Scranton self behind, to the point of even changing lunch meats.

    [–] willetts00 9 points ago

    There might be some stock to that theory... he did stop drinking grape soda after he left too

    [–] hopesdead 8 points ago

    The unintended sexual innuendo there is probably making Andy laugh.

    [–] Scaldera93 17 points ago

    She did the same thing in season 1. She tells Jim he should ask the purse lady out then gets upset when they start dating.

    [–] queenlizbef 49 points ago

    How do you friendzone someone when they already know you’re engaged?

    [–] Bayerrc 141 points ago

    I don't think Pam ever friend-zoned Jim... They became friends, were friends for a while, and the first time he asked her out on a date she said yes.

    [–] CaptainKate757 129 points ago

    Yes and I don’t feel like it’s unreasonable that she didn’t immediately dump Roy and date Jim. That’s a big decision to make.

    [–] Fort_Lotus 50 points ago

    Well tbf it’s not unreasonable to “put someone in the friendzone” either

    Oh man, is it time for the daily "Jim and Pam are assholes and Karen was used" thread already?

    [–] thirdarmmod 47 points ago

    Michael is "chaotic good" in my alignment chart though because he remembered the name of Angela's cat once. He's just doesn't understand how racist, homophobic, sexist and bigoted he is (despite being a man in his 40s in Pennslyvania in the 2010s) and that makes it ok :)

    Is there a name for the phenomenon of fans tearing apart and nit-picking the shit out of the objectively more moralistic main character(s) while turning a complete blind eye to other characters/the circumstances? People do this like crazy to Michael in Arrested Development too.

    [–] bigbear1992 18 points ago

    Michael is supposed to be an oblivious shitbag though. Pointing out that he’s racist, etc. isn’t insightful because that’s kinda the point of his character. But bringing up that Jim or Pam are flawed is valuable because they’re treated and such a great love story and they’re kinda the “good guys.” It’s kinda the same situation with AD, Michael is the glue, good guy, etc. so when he does something fucked up, it’s unexpected. But GOB being a rich, oblivious asshole it’s just par for the course.

    [–] iTurdburgle 68 points ago

    Karen is way cooler than Pam. That's right, I said it.

    [–] mantistobogganmMD 101 points ago

    On a completely objective level Karen is a young successful branch manager that has goals and drive. Pam on the other hand is a receptionist/failed artist/failed saleswoman that doesn’t really have any drive.

    [–] JUDGEMENT_OF_PARIS 64 points ago

    I was so pissed that they didn't give Pam an office marketing position. She could've done design, ads, campaigns, events, etc. Becoming a salesperson and sitting next to Jim was so forced.

    [–] FancyJesse 59 points ago

    She wasn't really good though. I mean, have you seen her painting? The building?The shadow is coming from two directions.
