The Office's Pam Beesly actor Jenna Fischer is taking a page out of ol’ Dwight Schrute’s handbook and purposefully stirring the pot, with this instance involving her Twitter followers.
It all began when The Office's official Twitter account posted another one of their fun facts this week, revealing that Jim Halpert and Pam’s first kiss was during Casino Night in the 2006 episode. Fischer quote-tweeted the post, asking, “Or was it Dundies?? Discuss!”
Fans and followers have been battling over the question in the replies section, forming natural alliances in the two camps. Many argue that Pam was the one to drunkenly kiss Jim in “The Dundies” episode. Some say it doesn’t count because she was so drunk that she “[felt] God in this Chili’s.”
The other side argues that Jim’s face says it all during Casino Night, and that it was the first real kiss between the future couple. One user wrote, “I mean, unless you say that the Chili's kiss was a drunk thing and meant nothing, then ok. But a kiss is a kiss.....their first mutual, romantic, OMG I KNEW IT kiss was Casino Night...”
Whether you are someone who counts drunk Pam’s smooch at the Dundies, or one who holds out for the real deal at casino night, thinking about Pam and Jim’s beginnings is super heartwarming.
