In the episode " Heavy Competition " of Season 5, Dwight steals Michael's Rolodex and finds his own business card, on the back of which, Michael had written before leaving Dunder Mifflin : "Dwight Schrute, tall, beets".

Pam is visibly touched when, after many art show attendees dismiss her artwork, Michael is so impressed that he asks to buy her painting of their office building.

He often also refers to Jim as his best friend in the office, although, based on his impersonation of Jim using surfer slang in " Michael's Last Dundies ", does not have a very good understanding of his personality.
While Jim and Pam are both shown to care about Michael, his clingy nature makes them reluctant to socialize with him outside of the office; such as when, after numerous unsuccessful invitations, Michael is forced to trick them in order to have them over for a disastrous dinner in the episode " Dinner Party. During Cecilia Halpert's baptism, Michael approaches Pam referring to himself as "the godfather" while imitating Don Corleoneafter which she sympathetically but emphatically asks him to acknowledge that he won't be Cece's godfather, he is disappointed but does so and is hurt to learn that the godparents are a couple they'd only recently met.
Pam is shown to have a soft spot for Michael, such as when she consoles him after he finds Holly to be in a relationship with AJ, and when she advises him on how to propose to Holly. In " Goodbye, Michael " it is revealed that Michael is secretly planning to leave for Colorado at the end of his penultimate work day, thereby avoiding having to say goodbye to everyone.

Pam is so thrilled to see photos of Michael's children that she does not judge him for paying for two phones to hold all the pictures.
Despite liking the majority of the staff, Michael fiercely hate Human Resources Manager Toby Flenderson, likely due to Toby's requirement to enforce the rules of proper office behavior that Michael loves to flout. Michael once reasoned that "Toby is in HR, which technically means he works for Corporate. So he's really not a part of our family. He's also divorced so he's not a part of his family either". His longtime goal is to get rid of Toby and any attempts at reconciliation between the two usually backfire, with Michael resorting to name calling or jokes at Toby's expense.
In the episode " Goodbye, Toby ", Michael is thrilled when Toby decides to move to Costa Rica and gives as his going away present a rock with a note that reads "Suck on this". The next season, after Toby's replacement Holly is transferred, Michael is horrified when Toby returns to Dunder Mifflin. In " Frame Toby ", he goes to great lengths to get him fired, trying to frame him for possession of marijuana which turns out to be a caprese salad.

In " Michael's Last Dundies ", Michael eggs Toby's house in the cold open while yelling, "you suck", while he and Deangelo are handing out Dundie nominations. In " Goodbye, Michael ", Michael is seen saying goodbye to Toby without insulting him, possibly indicating that he will miss Toby on some level. Toby suggests Michael visit his brother Rory, who also lives in Colorado. He is initially unkind to her as he misses having Pam as his receptionist, but she is able to earn his respect by cheering him up after his disastrous school visit in " Scott's Tots.
Although he generally enjoys Erin's thoughtful treatment, his dismissive feelings towards Erin continue until " Secretary's Day " when he reluctantly agrees to take her out to lunch.
Erin relishes the opportunity to spend time with her boss while Michael finds their conversation awkward and mentions that her then-boyfriend Andy Bernard was previously engaged to Angela Martin of which Erin was previously unaware, she is upset to learn this and ends her relationship with Andy. Their working relationship then develops smoothly while they bond by making each other laugh with childish jokes, such as Erin pointing out that the phrase "it's not" sounds like "snot.
Throughout the night, she unsuccessfully attempts to get Michael and Gabe to bond. Michael is jealous that the office looks to Gabe as the boss and attempts to sabotage the party. After being confronted by Erin in private, Michael questions why his opinion matters so much to her as he is not her father.
In a moment of insight, Michael realizes that Erin, who was raised in foster care, does indeed look to him as a father figure and he instigates a playful fight as father and daughter by saying "go to your room, young lady! Erin sees that Holly is able to sense where Michael is, and when she sees them reconcile, she finally understands their love for each other and smiles. Later in " Goodbye, Michael ", Erin talks to Michael about her love life and wishes that she knew her birth mother so she could tell Erin what to do.
Michael advises Erin that she shouldn't rush things and that she'll know what to do when the right guy comes along. Michael then tells her that she won't need her mother for advice, because she will always have his personal phone number when she needs advice and kisses her on the head. Shortly after the dissolution of his troubled relationship with Jan, Michael found love with Holly FlaxToby's replacement as HR Representative, who appears for a while to be Michael's best chance at love, with the two sharing a similar sense of humor and social awkwardness.
However, after David Wallace witnesses them kissing, Holly is transferred to the Nashua branch and she and Michael break up after choosing not to pursue a long-distance relationship.
Despite the breakup and Holly's new relationship with another man, their affection for each other doesn't go away, as it's shown that Holly had been writing a note for Michael on her work computer, as well as their subtle romantic glances at one another during the summer company picnic. Throughout her absence in Season 5 excluding "Company Picnic" and carrying on into Season 7, Michael hooks up with a few other women, but ultimately he realizes that they're nothing compared to her.
Around Christmas in Season 7, Toby is forced to leave the office due to being selected as part of the jury duty for a local murder case, resulting in Holly returning as the temporary HR replacement. There is initial tension between the two of them and hesitation on her side mostly after her sudden break-up with A. The two continue dating for a few weeks, and on Valentine's Day, they tell each other they love each other, decide to move in together, and resolve that they will not allow Dunder Mifflin to interfere with their future together.
With her time at the Scranton branch almost up and the recent knowledge that her aging parents need to be taken care of, they ultimately become engaged. Holly later moves back to Colorado and Michael follows her soon after.
In the finale it is revealed that they have children together. It was revealed in a photo album on NBC that they have three children and are expecting their fourth child. Michael's longest relationship before his marriage was with Jan Levinson Melora Hardinhis original-then-former boss from Corporate. Starting with a one-night stand after they closed their business deal at Chili's in " The Client ", Michael and Jan begin awkwardly dating, become an official couple, and eventually move in together after Jan is fired from her job-although Jan usually treated Michael with contempt.
After Michael fails to defend Jan in her wrongful dismissal suit against Dunder Mifflin, they remain together for a short while, but end up blowing up at each other during an ill-fated dinner party and eventually break up. He also dated Carol played by Carell's wife Nancy Carella real estate agent from whom Michael bought his condominium. Michael was much more interested in Carol than she was in him, and after he made an unwanted and rejected impromptu public marriage proposal, Michael's decision to Photoshop pictures of himself over Carol's ex-husband in her family pictures resulted in their breakup.
On a business trip to Winnipeg, Michael and "Concierge Marie" become close, and Michael does not wish to leave her after they are caught necking in her suite. After Jim and Pam's wedding, Michael begins dating Pam's mother Helene much to Pam's horrorbut he breaks up with her on her birthday after discovering she is turning Near the end of season six, Michael begins dating Donna Amy Pietzthe manager of a local bar, but later finds out that she's married and he is, as he puts it, "the mistress".
He continues seeing her until the disgust of his employees drives him to listen to his conscience and break things off with her. In Season 7's " Sex Ed ", Michael reunites in person or by telephone with all of his aforementioned past girlfriends when he believes that he has contracted herpes.
In doing so, he realizes that Holly was the only one he truly loved. Given his proclivity for constantly trying to keep his employees entertained and coupled with his juvenile personalityMichael has created a variety of different alter egos which he uses for both entertainment, and, at times, educational purposes. Often at times he uses these characters names to hide transacting information, and at one point his credit card uses "Michael Scarn", instead of Michael Scott.
The show often uses the joke " that's what she said ", which was popularized by the Wayne's World sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Michael Scott's Journey Through Love - The Office
In the original BBC version of The OfficeRicky Gervais's character David Brent frequently used the similar phrase "as the actress said to the bishop" as an inappropriate joke. Michael inserts the phrase as a sexually suggestive double entendre even in the most inappropriate circumstances, including business meetings and legal depositions.
Michael finds uttering the phrase so irresistible that in " Sexual Harassment " he is goaded into saying it just seconds after Jan Levinson and a lawyer from Corporate specifically ask him not to do so.
He owns it! Although originally based on David BrentScott developed into a significantly different character than his British counterpart. Whereas Brent is shown to be irredeemably incompetent, Scott is portrayed as an outstanding salesman who is unwisely promoted to a management role to which he appears completely ill-suited. In a scathing performance review during episode eight of season two, Jan Levinson suggests that Scott should be removed from his management role and return to sales.
Scott is thus an apt example of the Peter principle which states that competent persons in a hierarchical organization will "rise to the level of their incompetence" after which they will not advance. Despite his failings, Scott has been oddly successful as regional manager. This is attributed, in part, to his weakness of procrastination wherein he typically forfeits a bad choice by seeking the advice of his more competent subordinates such as Jim, Oscar, or Darryl and uses their recommendations.
Scott's success is also partly attributed to his main strength: genuinely caring about the well-being of the office and treating his employees like family. After the merger of the two branches Scott does not lose a single client despite a great deal of employee turnover much of which he was directly responsible for.
Although it is suggested that Brent has had similar success, such claims only ever come from Brent himself, thus making them unreliable.
Scott's social immaturity and inability to cope with responsibility is balanced with a personality that is much more caring than Brent's, even if both make unwise comments in the heat of the moment. Unlike Brent, who pretends to be friendly with many of his employees purely for the benefit of the cameras, Scott seems to genuinely like his colleagues, with the exception of Human Resources Director Toby Flenderson.
Scott's need to be liked by his staff and his belief that people see him as a genuine friend leads him to become very hurt when he realizes this is not the case.

Most, if not all, of Scott's managerial blunders can be directly correlated with the degree to which he desires to be liked by his employees or jealously seeks their approval. The DVD commentary to the pilot episode suggests that Scott's character continues a process begun in the second UK series, in which Gervais and Merchant intentionally made Brent less nasty, and more of a buffoon.
It is said in the commentary that Gervais and Merchant suggested that this be applied to Scott. This also reflects a general change in the US version's attitude, which is more sympathetic to the characters, and tones down the cruel humor of the original. The commentary also says that Steve Carell had not seen more than a few minutes of the original UK series when he was offered the role of Scott, and has since made a conscious decision not to watch it in case it influences his own performance.
During an interview on Marc Maron 's podcast, Jenna Fischer said that, when initially developing the show, Gervais explained that it is much more common in the UK for people to spend many years working at jobs that they dislike or are unfit for than it is in the US, which is why Michael Scott is portrayed as being significantly more successful in the workplace than was Brent. The show's writers have said that the hit movie The Year-Old Virgin provided very useful guidance as they refined the character along with Steve Carell between the first and second seasons.
Michael Scott wore a large amount of hair gel and dressed sloppily in Season 1, but by Season 2 he had a more conventional haircut and dressed much more neatly. Also, while Michael is often rude and nasty in Season 1, he is generally nicer and less hard-edged in subsequent seasons. In the seventh-season episode " The Seminar ", Michael in fact briefly meets David Brent in the lobby and they establish an immediate rapport, joking together and generally signalling that they would have been good friends.

As much as I love the feeling of putting on a new set of workout gear, I cringe at the thought of dropping tons of money on clothes I plan on sweating buckets in. Unlike the model who frequents the treadmill next to me, after a good workout, my clothes and hair, and socks are typically soaked and dying to jump in the laundry the second I get home.
If I'm planning on sweating that much and washing those clothes frequently, they have to be sweat-wicking, easy to move in, supportive of my curves, and generally inexpensive.
