25. "Casino Night," The Office
Air Date: 5/11/06
Leave it to a quirky comedy like The Office to end on a dramatic moment. The Steve Carell penned script finds Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) taking one huge step forward when they finally share a kiss...and then one equally sized step backward when she resolves to go forward with marrying Roy (David Denman).
At least "Casino Night" has brilliant moments of levity in between the Jim-Pam saga, like the revelation of Kevin's (Brian Baumgartner) Police cover band, Scrantonicity, the hilarity derived from Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela's (Angela Kinsey) secret relationship, and the inadvertent love triangle Michael finds himself in when he invites both Jan (Melora Hardin) and Carol (Nancy Walls) to Casino Night.
