Final score: +3, Though on the surface it seems like there’s little Jim and Pam progress, there are a few positive things to derive from this round. We get a real glimpse of Roy’s insensitivity, and how tired Pam is becoming of it. We also see Jim’s crush isn’t entirely one sided; Pam is quite jealous of Katy, and we see Pam giving Jim a bit of a longing look at the end, perhaps wishing she were the one he was going out to get drinks with.
