Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) is the pretty and friendly receptionist at the Scranton branch of paper company Dunder Mifflin. A little shy but always kind, and certainly good-looking but reserved, she is the quintessential girl next door and the love interest for co-worker Jim Halpert throughout the four seasons of the show.
At the beginning of The Office, Pam had been dating Dunder Mifflin warehouse worker Roy Anderson since high school and engaged to him for three years.
At long last, she and Jim have gotten together, and it looks like it's for good!
Pam: [seeing a picture of Michael and Jan] Oh my God, is that Jan?
Michael: No... that's a German woman named... Urkel... grue.
Jim: So what's your strategy for this race?
Pam: Well I'm gonna start fast.
Pam: Then I'm gonna run fast in the middle.
Pam: Then I'm gonna end fast.
Jim: Why won't more people do that?
Pam: Cause they're just stupid.
