Three and a half years ago, when I came to Greendale, I met six very important people— Sorry, seven. And meeting these people changed my life… Yeah… I’m sorry. I-I don’t know what to say. I’m so used to being the guy who can talk his way out of anything, but what do you say when you don’t want a way out? What you’ve all done for me is… indescribable. It’s unbelievable. And my love for you is immeasurable… Even when you split it seven ways.
“We did a screen test and so, they brought in cameras, and then there were four Jims and four Pams, and we got mix-and-matched. Every time I was matched with John, it was so easy and it just was so natural. On the second day, of auditions he leaned over to me and he said, ‘You’re my favorite Pam.’ And I said, ‘You’re my favorite Jim! Oh my gosh! I hope we both get it!’ So, when they called me and said that I got the role, I said, ‘Who’s Jim? Please say John Krasinski.’ They said, ‘Yes, it’s John Krasinski.’ And I knew. I started to cry and I knew that the two of us together… I couldn’t be Pam without him. He’s my Jim. He just is.”
