Did You Know?


When Michael tells Jim "my lips are sealed" about keeping the secret, he sings the titular line from the song "My Lips Are Sealed" and says "Bangles." Michael wasn't correct--the song is actually done by The Go-Gos. See more »


Michael Scott: Look. About you and Jim. I... No.
Pam Beesley: No, that's... You don't have to...
Michael Scott: No. I just feel it's my responsibility as your boss/friend...
Pam Beesley: No, it's really, it's okay. I know that Jim had, like, a crush on me when he first started, but that was a long time ago, so...
Michael Scott: It wasn't that long ago. It was on the booze cruise.
Pam Beesley: [Puzzled] Jim had a crush on me on the booze cruise, or he told you about it on the booze cruise?
Michael Scott: Uh-uh. Okay, shut it, Michael. I'm done, that's it. I'm out.

"Jim and I are great friends"
28 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end of the booze cruise episode, Jim, in a moment of alcohol induced weakness, confesses to Michael the nature of the Jim and Pam relationship, that Jim is in love with her. This episode addresses that situation. The entire premise is Jim going to any length to make sure his secret is kept a secret. This includes numerous interaction with Michael including a very funny lunch trip to Hooters. The subplot of this story deals with an employee calling in sick and Michael designating Dwight as the detective to figure out whether or not the employee truly is sick. This leads to one of the more revealing character development arcs to date in the series.

This episode contains many funny Michael and Dwight moments. It also gives new dynamic to the Jim-Pam relationship as Pam is told that Jim "used" to have feelings for her. I highly recommend this episode.
