There's some quality Michael and ensemble dialogue in this chapter!
I try as much as possible to include at least one regular character interaction with Pam since she's the one in the office so I try my best to stay truthful to what the character would probably say in that one small conversation.
With Michael, it's just free for all basically, I just think of the most ridiculous things for him to do so it makes writing him so much fun.

Pam-orama is 100% a good way for Michael to refer to Pam. You got his character spot on here I think. He gets even a little attention (that he didn't generate himself) and he HAS to spread it far and wide. He does have his own family now, but his Dunder-Mifflin family will always be important to him and that comes across.
Feels like maybe the beginning of a reconciliation between Jim and Pam. He's starting to crack jokes. She's not mad, just relieved.
And what I really liked was that you brought out the Michael that has a heart of gold. Great to see that. Nice job.
I spent so much time thinking on the nickname so I'm glad you liked it. I really had fun writing Michael's character because the possibilities are limitless with him. And his heart is always in the right place, it just doesn't translate properly into actions.
With Jim and Pam, I had to pick a point where Pam would slowly open herself up to him. I wanted it to be in a way that she thinks Jim came through for him by not being in Philly.
