My roommates and I have a weekly ritual — wine and The Office. After a long week of homework and tests, we take 30 minutes out of our busy schedule to watch Jim, Pam, Michael, Dwight, and all of their co-workers get through their workday. The show, starring Steve Carell, has been on air since March of 2005 and has attracted followers among all age groups.
One reason why Office lovers have remained faithful to the show is because of the long, time-coming romance between Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer). Don’t get me wrong, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Michael’s office pranks keep my ribs aching from laughing so much. But if you ask most Office viewers, Jim and Pam’s relationship has kept them intrigued over the past four years. Watching Jim wait over various seasons for Pam to realize the special bond they have was heart-wrenching.
Since Jim and Pam have been together for the past season, various intense events have occurred. When they finally got together, I thought the world was going to die of happiness. No one would have guessed what happened next: Pam got pregnant. Of course, the next course of action would be to have a wedding! Thus the one-hour episode dedicated to Jim and Pam’s wedding aired on October 8.
The whole office was invited, which terrified Pam. Andy was on a quest to get Erin to fall for him. Stanley brought his mistress Cynthia, a chance to get some play while away. Dwight was on a quest, along with Michael, to get some bridesmaid loving. And the lovely wedding couple just wanted to get married. All of this was going on, while Jim and Pam were trying to keep her pregnancy a secret.
After the extremely awkward rehearsal dinner, the party actually began. I loved the “office” party that Andy threw, which in turn ended up tearing his scrotum. Poor Pam was forced to drive him to the ER because she was the only sober person around, for various reasons. Jim was previously getting drunk with Michael and his brothers. And the rest of the office, minus Dwight, was busy dancing the night away. Dwight, on the other hand, hooked up with Pam’s best friend throughout the night.
