Michael feels no connection to baby Astrid when he holds her, but when Jan tells him not to date Holly, he goes back to the office and holds Holly instead; they definitely have a connection, and she agrees to go out with him.
Jim and Pam spend the day having trouble connecting with each other over the phone.
Pam fails out of one of her art-school classes, but rather than spend three more months in New York to make it up, she comes home to Scranton to be with Jim.
The fifth season of "The Office" begins with Pam at art school in New York, Ryan returning to Dunder-Mifflin, Dwight and Angela having an affair behind Andy’s back, and Michael meeting the apparent woman of his dreams in new human-resources head Holly.
Pam eventually comes back from art school, gets engaged to Jim and gets pregnant, while Holly and Michael enjoy a short but intense relationship before she’s transferred out of town.
Holly decides that Meredith needs to be terminated for this infraction, and she and Michael have a tense lunch over which he tries to convince her otherwise.
Eventually, HR at corporate orders the affair swept under the rug.
To mess with Andy, Dwight decides to become a huge Cornell devotee, stocking up on the school’s memorabilia and even sending in an application.
