Jan Levinson (formerly Jan Levinson-Gould) is played by Melora Hardin. She became known as Michael Scott's superior at the New York City corporate headquarters of Dunder Mifflin, a paper company.

At the onset, Jan is presented as a no-nonsense manager and strong female role model, but she eventually devolves into a total mess, getting divorced, then fired, then - after beginning an on-again, off-again romance with Michael - letting her half-crazy, awkward, neurotic side come through in a big way. What will Jan do next?

Michael

When I was in college I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was puke. I would chug a fifth of socos, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties, some brewskies, some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more soco, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight B's. They called me Buzz.
