A preview clip for the fourth season features Andy taking up inner-tubing. The fourth-season premiere, " Fun Run ", has Andy competitively participating in Michael's superfluously named run for rabies prevention through strategically drafting Kevin, although he falls prey to "nipple chafing.
He also develops a relationship with Angela, not being aware of Dwight and Angela's previous romantic interludes. He steals an elaborate ice sculpture for Angela's launch party, and serenades her later in the same episode with a rendition of the ABBA song " Take a Chance on Me ", receiving a rare, yet quickly suppressed smile in return.
Andy discusses the exclamation of "Oh, D! This is evidenced later in " Did I Stutter? However, in a deleted scene, Jim reveals Andy was invited in order to benefit Jim, as Andy's pride for Cornell would push the client- a graduate of Dartmouth- toward him. The scheme plays out as intended when the client invites Kevin to play golf with him again but denies Andy's request to join them.
Angela accepts his proposal with a somewhat irritated "Okay"; shortly thereafter, though, she rekindled her intimate relationship with her former lover, Dwight, which is witnessed by Phyllis and the camera crew, who walk in on them making love by her desk. Season 5[ edit ] Between season four and five, Andy plans his wedding with Angela, although his ideas are often rejected by her. It takes until " Customer Survey " to convince her on a wedding concept, although Angela has manipulated Andy into having the only option to satisfy her demands being Dwight's farm.
However, Andy has already placed many non-refundable deposits on other wedding ideas and lost them to Angela's indecisiveness. In " Business Trip ", Andy and Oscar bond over Andy's failed attempt to set Oscar up, drunkenly calling Angela and asking why they haven't consummated their relationship.
Andy does admit Angela makes him a "better man" during his talks with Oscar, although he fails to hear Dwight in the background of the call. In the morning, Angela pushes him back to first base, although Andy feels better from the closer relationship he's gained with Oscar. During a tour of the wedding chapel, Andy portrays Angela's father and Dwight as Andy in a wedding rehearsal that Andy is oblivious to be a real wedding whose marriage license Angela later voids.
This forward act by Dwight pushes Angela toward committing to Andy in the long run. While he is in another room, Phyllis reveals that Dwight is having an affair with Angela. Andy then returns, unaware of what the rest of the staff know and decide not to reveal, and goes home with Angela.
They meet out in the parking lot, where Dwight realizes that Angela has had sex with Andy as well, despite telling Dwight that she had only been sleeping with him. Realizing that they have both been lied to, Andy cancels his wedding cake, and Dwight throws out the bobble head in his likeness, implying the men's relationships with Angela are now over.
Everyone panics, and Andy attempts to escape out one of the doors, but burns his hand, as Dwight had previously heated it with a propane torch. When Dwight sets off firecrackers, Andy believes that "The fire's shooting at [them]!
He then teams up with Jim, and they attempt to use the copier as a battering ramagainst one of the locked doors. Later, he miserably notes that Dunder Mifflin also lost the account. Oscar informs the other staff that Andy is attending one of his honeymoons, which puzzles Michael. Oscar then explains that when Andy was making plans for the wedding, he put down non-refundable deposits at multiple destinations, and ended up going to all of them, to fulfill the deposit.
Andy is later called "that new jackass" by Bob Vancewhen he and Phyllis are having lunch with Jim and Pam. With the rest of the staff, Andy insists that Michael stop before he makes things worse for himself and for everyone else. Later, in the Break Room, when Michael decides to start his own paper company, he offers him a job, to which a visibly uncomfortable Andy is about to reject Michael, when Dwight enters the room, and Andy refers Michael to Dwight, before leaving.
However, he mistakes Pam's rejection of Jim's ideas as Pam controlling him. Andy assumes the role as Jim's emotional rock, which Jim goes along with, as a prank. When Andy makes an announcement to the office for them to respect Jim's emotional needs, Phyllis informs him that Jim is just messing with him. When he goes to confront Jim over the matter, Jim tells Andy that he is very happy with Pam, and assures Andy that, while his breakup with Angela was "A bummer", he will find someone else.
In the last scene of the episode, Kelly and Andy are seen in the men's bathroom, where she is about to give him an ear piercingsomething that he fears the pain of, as well as worrying that he will be pierced on the "Gay ear".
However, the pair are both too timid to reveal their feelings for one another. In " Murder ", Andy asks Erin out on a date while playing a game called Belles, Bourbon, and Bulletsbut is confused whether she was just playing along with the game. When she implies that she said yes as Naughty Nellie, he says that he also asked her out in character, leaving both disappointed. He then proceeds to give Erin the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Subsequently, Erin becomes injured by the geeseterrorized by the other gifts of birdsand angered at whomever is her secret Santa. Michael, disgruntled by the fact that Phyllis was made office Santa that year instead of him, reveals to the entire office that Andy is Erin's secret Santa.
Unfazed, Andy hires 12 professional drummers to perform for Erin and the rest of the staff at the end of the episode, which Erin enjoys. Andy confesses that he had never done the splits before, but he is motivated to perform this dance move to impress Erin. Pam takes Andy to the hospital the night before her wedding as everyone else is too drunk to drive. In " Sabre ," he believes that after hiring professional drummers for Erin, she should ask him out.
However, she believes that he will ask her out and she can't wait to see how he "tops [the drummers]. In " New Leads ," after Michael distributes the sales leads to rest of the staff, Erin hides Andy's leads.
At the end of episode, a "hot-blooded" Erin offers a cold Andy her jacket in a landfill where they share their first kiss. Earlier in the episode, Andy lets the new sales leads get to his head and greatly offends Darryl. He, along with the rest of the sales staff, is convinced by Jim that their poor attitudes have alienated everyone else, and agrees to Jim's proposal to smooth things over with the staff.
During " Happy Hour ," Andy and Erin's attempts to keep their relationship under wraps, backfires constantly when they're too overzealous about hiding it. Finally sick of hiding the truth, Andy declares their relationship during the company's happy hour gathering.
In " Secretary's Day ", Andy pulls out all stops in making sure that Erin has a memorable Secretary's Day, even asking Michael to treat Erin out to lunch, which the boss reluctantly agrees to do. However, when Michael reveals that Andy was engaged to Angela, Erin reacts badly. She even throws cake in Andy's face when he tries to serenade her with one of his songs, and wants to take a break from their relationship.
Michael does smooth things over a bit with Erin, but Erin does not change her mind about breaking up with him, and Andy remains distraught. During " The Cover-Up ", one of his clients informs him that their Sabre printer catches fire, which worries Andy.
When he decides to investigate the matter, he enlists Darryl to assist him. However, Darryl wants to get revenge on Andy for almost getting him fired a while back over mistaken shipments, and goes along with the ploy by playing up his fears. But when Andy video tapes the printer that catches on fire, it confirms his suspicions. This prompts Darryl to call off his prank, when he realizes it could get himself in trouble. When Michael is revealed to be dating a married woman in " The Chump ", Andy is furious because of his own cuckolding at Angela's hands, and is driven to make Michael realize the error of his ways.
Andy drives Michael to a high school baseball game that the woman's husband is coaching and makes the two meet, making it uncomfortable for Michael and eventually leading to him ending the affair. Andy initially denies it, even though he is accused of this. But he eventually comes clean with the truth by admitting to submitting a letter to a news editor and the video he recorded of a printer catching fire. Andy admits this as he doesn't want to see the printer fire cause a catastrophe to a school or hospital, but finds himself harassed throughout the day by the sales staff when they all suspect he did it.
However, as he leaves at the end of the day, Andy is commended by Erin for his bravery, and he leaves smiling. He invites the entire office to come and is particularly hopeful to impress Erin with his performance—but when Erin agrees to babysit for Pam and Jim's daughter Cece so that they can attend, Andy nearly blows the performance checking his phone for word from her on stage.
Erin ultimately is revealed to have been watching from the back, Cece in tow, to Andy's delight and to Jim and Pam's chagrin.
Andy is sad once again when Erin leaves quickly to attend to a cold-suffering Gabe, but he then sings for the delighted office crew and finishes his evening on a happy note. In " Costume Contest ", he mentions in a conversation with Darryl that he wrote daily op-ed columns for his college newspaper, "The Cornell Daily Sun. In " Sex Ed ", he holds a sex education seminar for the office because people are insulting Meredith, but is really only doing so to find out if Erin and Gabe are sleeping together the answer is "Yes".
When the employees make fun of him, he gets angry and throws a pizza box at the wall. Later Gabe bluntly tells Andy to never behave like that again, especially after Andy gave Gabe permission to ask Erin out over the previous summer, but Darryl cheers him up.
In " The Sting ", Andy gets jealous over hearing of a former Here Comes Treble member's musical success, and forms an underwhelming but enjoyable office band with Darryl and Kevin. In " Christening ", Andy joins Michael Scott's plan to travel with the church group to Mexico, as both men are deeply unhappy with their personal lives in Scranton, but they quickly realize their mistake and return to their regular lives.
In " Viewing Party ", Andy isn't happy to be attending a " Glee " viewing party at Gabe's apartment, and takes so much of the obscure Asian potency items Gabe had collected that he becomes visibly ill.
In " Ultimatum ", Andy reveals that his New Year's resolution is to "learn how to cook for one", since his regular cooking leaves him with twice as much food as he needs. He flatly tells Pam that he's not going to meet anyone, and that "some people are destined to be alone". He later goes with Darryl and Dwight on a trip to a bookstore, and they later have fun at a local roller skating rink.
In " The Seminar ", Andy holds a small business seminar in the office with some special guests because he needs to overcome his pathetic sales figures. At the end of the seminar, Andy is able to sell three packages, thanks to the advice of Michael.
Andy is at first reluctant but relents at Erin's friendly urging.
The hunt starts with a puzzle picture, which leads to Gabe's stereo in Darryl's office, which leads to glow in the dark stars in Ryan's closet, leading to sparkling cider with Hank the security guard, and finally to a Valentine's cookie in the break room. When the cookie tells her to enjoy her Valentine's kiss, Erin thinks she's supposed to kiss Andy.
Andy points out Gabe blowing a kiss through the window and leaves awkwardly. When the staff gathers in the Conference Room to see the screening of Michael's movie "Threat Level Midnight" in the episode of the same nameAndy is shown playing a character with a New Jersey accent named Billy the Bartender. Jim starts laughing uncontrollably at a particular scene, causing everyone else to laugh with him.
Michael angrily stops the movie and takes it away, to which everyone protests, including Andy, who says that some people are doing a superb job in the movie. In " Todd Packer ", when office administrator Pam gets a new computer for the receptionist's desk to replace the current, ancient one, Andy wants a new computer too. Pam states that if she were to get a new computer for one sales rep Andyshe would have to get one for every sales rep, which leads the entire office into believing that new computers are being freely handed out.
Since Pam refuses to give him a new computer, Andy switches his computer with Erin, a trade Erin seems to be fine with. Pam is angry with him, saying that the computer was not meant for Erin personally but for the receptionist's desk in general, and therefore it was not hers to switch.
Pam tells Andy that the only way he can get a new computer is if his breaks, which leads to him accepting all cookiesintentionally opening pop-up adsand placing food in the disc drive. Pam then buys Andy a new computer, which they scratch up so it figures into Pam's fake cover story finding a spare model in the warehouseand Pam later doles out some vacation days to Darryl to keep the whole lie nicely bottled up. As the instruction booklet is not with the game, Andy and Darryl make up the rules as they go along, much to Kevin's objection.
Eventually, Kevin notices the money they had bet on the game with is missing, and storms out. As Darryl and Andy look at each other in confusion, Kevin reveals to the cameras that he has the money, stating, "And that Deangelo loves the antics of Andy, who has resorted to physical comedy when his jokes fall flat, getting to the point where he pours hot coffee on his pants and, at Deangelo's urging, eats soap; Andy tells the camera with dazed sadness that "this is my life now".
In " Goodbye, Michael ", Andy is given Michael's client list as a going away present, and after losing one, requests the help of Deangelo to retain them.
Deangelo nearly screws up a relationship with a client, but Andy gains enough confidence to salvage the sale.
When Toby returns to Scranton for the reunion and Angela and Dwight's wedding, Nellie also returning to Scranton from her new home in Poland lets the camera crew know she isn't thrilled about seeing Toby again. At the airport, Nellie rebuffs an attempted hug from Toby, snidely brushes aside his comment about a relationship she ended by saying she un-followed him on Facebook and questions him of how long he's been stalking her Toby quietly says anyone can read non-protected tweets and declines his offer to share a cab into town.
After that point, Toby has no further interactions of any kind with Nellie. Pete and Clark[ edit ] After the departure of Kelly and Ryan, Toby appears more excited with the arrival of the two twenty-somethings who are single like himself.
He appears to see them as closer friends than they see him but neither of them treats him meanly either. He convinced both of them, along with Kevin and Darryl, to grow moustaches from " Movember ", believing this was a bonding activity.
He was disappointed when Pete shaved his moustache off after Erin found it off-putting. Toby appears to consider Pete a better fit for Erin than Andy, largely because he doesn't appreciate Andy's belittling treatment of him and also because he never had any romantic interest in Erin. At the documentary reunion, Pete is nice to Toby and is visibly happy when Toby decides to attend an after-party he had been planning to skip.
Seasons 1—2[ edit ] Toby only appears in a few episodes, showing up first in a scene in " Diversity Day ," in which he jokes about sitting in an Indian Circle to which everyone else laughs. Michael, having told many more offensive jokes, is offended by Toby's joke and tells him that "This is an environment of welcoming, and you should just get the hell out of here. This is the first instance in the relationship between the two, Toby trying to be responsible, and Michael trying to demean and undermine him as much as possible.
In " Hot Girl ," Toby is introduced by Michael to Katy the purse saleswoman; after Toby and Katy begin talking happily about their high school days, Michael deliberately humiliates Toby by mentioning his divorce and how he once briefly had to live in his car. He also notices the picture of Toby's daughter on his desk, and refers to her as "cute"; however, this is probably a further attempt to portray Toby, a divorced father, as undesirable.
Michael then states that everyone is still "generally quite happy," which he thinks is because Toby has not yet had the meeting. In fact, Toby did have the meeting and everyone clapped after he was done, leaving them in a good mood. In a deleted scene of " Halloween ," Toby tries to persuade Michael to make a decision as to which employee he must fire. When Michael chooses Toby, Toby replies that he does not report to Michael.
When Michael then tries to get Toby to quit, Toby replies that someone else will just take his place. Michael then claims that if he had the authority, he would immediately fire Toby, to which Toby calmly replies, "I know, Michael.
When Michael orders the ship to leave without him, Toby grins broadly, implying he had planned things in order to miss the event. Toby and Michael have a good conversation about Michael's desire to have a family: Michael wants to have a biological child, and Toby hints that he should seek out alternatives.
When Michael asks if Sasha already has a godfather, Toby quickly replies, "Yes. Toby shows that he handles inter-office complaints calmly and efficiently, only to see his work undone by Michael's stupidity.
When Dwight threatens to quit unless Michael fires Jim because of Jim's history of pranks against DwightMichael attempts to resolve the conflict by making vague promises of future action, an approach similar to one Toby had used successfully in the past. Toby covertly shows that he files Dwight's complaints against Jim in a trash box and that he puts the huge number of complaints against Michael in unmarked boxes that are filed into the vast space of the warehouse.
Michael's response is to demean him in front of everybody.
Toby just lets him finish. Later, Toby says to the camera, "I'm not gonna lie—it felt good to take money from Michael. I'm gonna chase that feeling. Michael is visibly stung when Jim says no he later tells Michael about his declaration of love for Pam. In " The Convict ," Michael jokingly refers to Toby as a rapist, much to the dismay of those present. Later, Toby convinces Michael to release the office employees from the conference room, whom he had locked in there as punishment for unfavorably comparing Dunder Mifflin to a prison.
In " A Benihana Christmas ," Michael has Dwight take Toby's gift bag present of an expensive robe when they run out of enough of them for everyone. Pam later comes over and kindly gives her robe to Toby.
Michael tries to accuse Toby of stealing the file from him, but Toby says "nine different people sent it to me, including my ex-wife, and, well, we don't talk. In " Phyllis' Wedding " Toby is seen with a beautiful woman whom he says he met in the gym, although Kevin believes she is a paid escort. When Phyllis tosses her bouquet, it is Toby's date that catches it, and then excitedly runs back to Toby and the two share a brief embrace and kiss.
Toby is then shown in a talking head as very ecstatic towards the outcome. It is implied that Toby and his date eventually broke up afterwards as this is the only episode where she is seen. In " Business School " he tells Pam he cannot make it to her art show because his daughter has a play.
He then offers to miss his daughter's play because "what they do is not art. When he finally wins it, Pam suggests that he give it to his daughter instead. Toby wonders if Michael did this to punish Toby and that if he did, it was a genius move. Toby goes with Michael and Darryl to New York after Jan says she will not do the contract negotiation unless Toby is there.
When Michael repeatedly mentions his and Jan's relationship at that point, Toby takes notes and Michael insults him, but Toby just says he's "preparing for the deposition" that he thinks will inevitably occur because Michael threatened to withhold sex from a female superior in order to get a modest, scheduled raise, commenting, "It will be a groundbreaking case when it inevitably goes to trial. In " Women's Appreciation ," Toby is out of the office at a parent-teacher conference when Phyllis is flashed.
When he returns, Michael scoffs at his alibi and seriously asks to see his penis to rule him out as a suspect. Toby turns towards Michael and looks like he's about to get angry; Michael then seems to catch himself and admits what he said to Toby was wrong. In " Beach Games ," Michael bans Toby from attending the beach event because he wants it to be fun and says it will not be if Toby is there. Toby is visibly upset that he will not get to see Pam in a bikini which she ends up not wearing there and is seen despondently doing paper work in a deleted scene from the episode.
He describes Michael's "invention" of a safe George Foreman Grill after he burned his foot, which involved putting the Grill inside a bunny cage. He says that his job is not a nightmare because you wake up from nightmares; it's more like an unrelenting "daymare. He says, "HR isn't just a job, it's a way of life. Pause But I wish it was just a job. Before the race, Dwight puts Imodium in Toby's drink instead of Ex-Lax and Michael pulls Toby's shorts down right before the starting gun is fired.
Toby later wins the race to cure rabies, beating Michael and accomplishing something noteworthy; however, no one notices his win, and Kelly does not even bother looking up when he crosses the finish line. Toby then wonders why the 5K course was a straight line instead of a circle that would have returned everyone to the Dunder Mifflin building. When Michael accosts Toby about the memo thinking it's about him and Jan having sex in the officeToby tells him, in front of everyone, that it is about Jim and Pam.
When they confirm that they are dating everyone is happy, except Toby. Later Pam and Jim visit him to see if they have to sign a "Love Contract," but he tells them to wait and see. In a scene that was added to the episode's repeat airing on NBC, Toby comes into work with a woman he says is his girlfriend and makes out with her right in front of the reception desk and Pam. In " Money " Toby shows that he uses very good grammar when he corrects Michael and clears up a confusion between the usages of the words "whoever" and "whomever" "who" is used as a subjectwhile "whom" is used as an object.
Michael responds by telling Toby to shove a letter opener in his skull. In a deleted scene of " Local Ad ," Toby pitches an idea of having a stop motion ad that Michael, of course, puts down although the rest of the office seems to like the idea. When the local ad is being played at the bar, Toby is in the ad, but only briefly.
While Michael was shooting the scene of the paper airplane flying out of the hand of Creed towards the conference room window, you see Toby in the conference room packing up whatever work he was finishing. Michael did not want Toby in the video; however, for a fleeting moment, Toby had managed to unintentionally get a part in the ad. Toby's distaste for Pam's relationship with Jim is again brought up in " Branch Wars " when Jim is allowed to join "The Finer Things Club," an exclusive organization built up by Pam, Toby, and Oscar, dedicated to discussing civilized culture.
During the episode's final scene, after Jim contributes his ideas on the book being discussed, Toby scrutinizes him very bitterly, hinting again at his disdain for Jim's success with Pam.
His irritation is attributed to the fact that Jim did not read the book, though Oscar and even Pam are also annoyed with Jim's wisecracking, uninformed behavior. Also in this episode Michael tells Karen she can have Toby instead of Stanley; when Karen says Toby is not a salesperson, Michael briefly tries to talk up Toby's ability to learn before saying he can't fake it and insulting the HR rep anew. In the episode " Survivor Man ," Toby ends up getting on Jim's nerves.
When Jim is named Acting Manager while Michael is off on his "wilderness adventure" and starts altering the office's birthday schedule, Toby asks Jim if he can have a birthday celebration, explaining that Michael deliberately held a party for Toby at 4: Jim agrees but comments that he likes Toby but that the guy is really annoying him, claiming that sometimes Toby can sometimes be a little bit much.
Jim's dismissive, disgusted attitude toward Toby whom he has always gotten along with before very closely mirrors how Michael treats Toby. It is not clear whether Jim is genuinely fed up with Toby or whether this interplay showed that Jim was beginning to act like Michael. It is also possible that Jim was not annoyed at Toby specifically but at the general reaction to his plan.
Jim's disgusted attitude can also be attributed to the fact that Toby has been treating Jim fairly poorly in previous episodes due to his jealousy of his relationship with Pam. Michael's hatred for Toby is brought up again in " The Deposition " when Michael says he does not want Toby in the deposition and nastily asks if the HR rep is there "to renew your divorce vows" Toby is also sitting a conspicuous distance from Michael in the uncrowded room being used for the proceedings. When the two happen to sit next to each other at lunch, Toby kindly tells Michael that he can relate to Michael's situation, of Toby's parents' divorce.
While Toby is talking, Michael pushes Toby's lunch tray on the floor, then gets up and leaves. Later in the episode, Toby begins to laugh at Michael after learning Michael thinks Ryan is "hot.
In the episode " Night Out ," he puts his hand on Pam's leg and caresses it for a long, awkward moment, which everyone standing around seems to notice, making this the first time the employees see Toby's possible crush on Pam. Immediately thereafter, realizing what he had just done, he abruptly announces that he is moving to Costa Ricaruns outside to the security fence, scales it, and disappears into the night.
This scene was done by a stunt double, as Lieberstein wanted to do it himself but it was decided for insurance reasons to let the stuntman do his work.
In " Did I Stutter? Toby then says to the camera that Jim's time spent with Pam "has finally caught up to him," but he repeats Pam's name several times when unnecessary. Toby later says, though, that he agrees that Jim has good numbers but Ryan thinks they are not good enough.
In the same episode, Toby convinces Michael he needs to deal with Stanley for his open insubordination during a staff meeting, though Michael goes about it a different way because Toby's method "did not work because it was stupid. It is also shown that Dwight thinks Toby may be Jewishas Dwight's org chart shows a blue Star of David with a question mark next to Toby's name; Toby did not say what if any religion he practiced when Michael prodded the staffers to talk about their religious practices in Fun Run.
As Toby spent time in a seminary as revealed in season five episode " Casual Friday ," he is most likely a Roman Catholic. In " Goodbye, Toby ", he follows through on his earlier plans and quits his job as HR representative to move to Costa Rica. Michael is overjoyed at his departure and plans to throw a lavish goodbye party that reflects this.
Both Kelly and Pam say they are sorry he is leaving, with Pam saying in an interview that she thinks he's kind of cute. Toby also ends up annoying Holly, his replacement, to a degree while showing her around the office and she is somewhat rude to him and claims that he almost bored her to sleep, something which Michael enjoys hearing Holly remains oblivious that Michael, in fact, abuses Toby and Michael claims that Toby tortures him, though it is possible she only puts Toby down so as to get on Micheal's good side.
Toby faces a cruel exit interview from Michael but the tables are turned when Holly and Pam join the interview. Michael is unable to berate Toby at length as Holly takes over. When Toby is asked; "What would you improve about Dunder Mifflin? Realizing that Toby has a potential opportunity to reveal and complain about his unethical work behavior and abusive treatment, Michael hides his face and angrily glares at Toby and silently threatens to kill him if he answers the question.
Toby does not seem afraid but simply gives a "things are OK as they are" answer. Toby later tells the camera that he has made it far enough without disclosing Micheal's behavior and that there is no point in doing so.
Toby gets revenge when Michael's insulting farewell gift to him is exposed a rock with a note reading: Toby's main concern on his last day is getting pictures of himself alone with Pam, which he finally does as his party is ending. Michael gets a last dig in by having Hank the security guard escort Toby out of the office as he leaves for his new life in Costa Rica and is still shown to be upset when Toby looks at his new watch. In a deleted scene at his farewell party, Toby refers to an undefined incident involving his sister; this marks the first time Toby has mentioned having any siblings, although late in season 7 he reveals also having a brother Rory.
He explains that he has yet to see the beach, but expresses some happiness with the camera crew for visiting. In a deleted scene from Baby ShowerToby can be heard on the speakerphone with Hollynoting that he enjoys his stay at the hospital more than his treatment from Michael at the office.
In " Frame Toby " it is revealed that Toby had returned to the office for a week without Michael noticing. Michael then attempts to get Toby fired by giving Pam a fake letter to give to Toby, asking him to hug and kiss her no matter how much she resisted, and taunting the HR rep into punching him, but both plans fail.
Michael then tries out Dwight's idea of planting drugs in Toby's desk unknowingly buying basil from a caprese salad from warehouse workers who he thinks sold him marijuana. However, he does feel guilty about what he has done and, when the police are investigating the "drugs," Michael tells the police that it's a mistake and tries to stop them from arresting Toby. This suggests that, while Michael does hate Toby, there are limits to his hatred. He has a tendency to disrupt their daily work flow, and in a talking head interview, warehouse supervisor Darryl Philbin Craig Robinson explains that they have never been able to make a full year accident-free because of Michael's antics.
CFO David Wallace tolerates Michael's antics because he values his loyalty to the company, but Michael offends CEO Allan and the rest of the executives during his only meeting with them. Although many Dunder Mifflin employees are initially barely able to tolerate Michael, they gradually grow to appreciate his sincere intentions, even at times coming to find amusement in his sophomoric humor and behavior; this transition is most apparent in Pam Halpertwith whom he eventually develops a genuine friendship.
His co-workers are overjoyed when Michael finds his soulmate in Holly Flaxparticipate in his romantic proposal to her and are shown to be emotional at his leaving Scranton to be with her. Jim Halpert even teared up while calling Michael "the best boss [he] ever had. Although on the surface, Michael usually appears dismissive of Dwight and generally views him as a suck-up, he is genuinely hurt and angry at the few times when Dwight has deceived him, such as when Dwight went over Michael's head to vie for the manager's job or when Dwight refused to reveal office secrets to Michael's new company, the "Michael Scott Paper Company".
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: Michael also cares how Dwight feels about him. After Michael beats Dwight at his own dojo, Michael finds out that Dwight no longer wanted Michael as his primary contact in case of an emergency which causes Michael to promote him from "Assistant to the Regional Manager" to "Assistant Regional Manager", with a three-month probational period.
Dwight told Michael in Season 6 that Michael's pathetic career path hurt Dwight and he regretted working for him instead of taking a fast-track job at Home Depotbut they buried their differences later on. When Deangelo Vickers arrives to be the new Branch Manager, Dwight is depressed that he didn't get the job after Michael recommended him, only to learn from Gabe that Michael didn't recommend him after all.
At first Dwight is angry with Michael, but they make amends when Michael gives him a letter of recommendation on his final day at Dunder Mifflin. They end the day with a paintball fight behind the building. In the series finaleMichael is the best man at Dwight's wedding after Jim arranges it. Ryan Howard Michael has a one-sided mancrush on Ryan, which makes Ryan uncomfortable. Michael appears to view Ryan both as an idolized friend, such as when he grew a goatee just because Ryan also grew one, and as a son, which he says he views Ryan as in " Secret Santa ".
In " The Deposition ", a page from Michael's diary reveals he describes Ryan as being "just as hot as Jan, but in a different way. He later earns Ryan's respect when Ryan sees Michael's talents as a salesman over the phone.
In " Prince Family Paper ", Michael acknowledges that his heart has led him astray before, naming Jan and Ryan as examples of this. In Season 7, Michael shows the full gamut of his ties to Ryan: But Ryan is later stunned when Michael later calls out his negative qualities and makes it clear Ryan only has nine days with no wiggle room before he fails everyone. Michael is later relieved when Ryan sells the project and everyone gets their money back. Ryan later appears as part of the group to help Michael brainstorm a perfect proposal to Holly.
Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly later Halpert Michael doesn't hesitate to compliment or criticize Pam for her looks and he frequently mentions her breasts. In the episode " Diwali " Michael mistakenly thinks that he and Pam have a connection, and is rejected when he tries to kiss her.
Throughout their relationship, Pam has served as something of a shoulder angel for Michael by encouraging him to be more productive and discouraging his bad ideas, with varying degrees of success. She grows closer to Michael as he supports her goals in pursuing sales and art. 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.

Toby Flenderson Despite liking the majority of the staff, Michael fiercely hates Human Resources Manager Toby Flenderson, likely due to Toby's requirement to enforce the rules of proper office behavior that Michael loves to flout.

In " Goodbye, Michael ", Michael is seen saying goodbye to Toby without insulting him, possibly indicating that he will miss Toby on some level.
