Married and dating episode 1
Although at some points the tensions between them increase, Pam's true feelings for Jim become more evident as it is revealed that Pam's fondness for him extends outside the office .
Pam is saddened by the fact that her father won't talk to her about his failing marriage but thinks he might open up to Jim.
When Pam's attempt to set Michael up with her landlady goes awry, Jim jokes that she's going to have to move out and suggests that they move in together, though she dismisses the idea saying that she wouldn't move in with a man without being engaged first.
After a quick exchange in which Jim says that a proposal is on the way, he reveals to the documentary crew the engagement ring he had purchased one week into dating Pam and states that he was not kidding about wanting to marry her but, after giving Michael advice on how to get to Holly and realizing that he and Pam had come such a long way since they first met, as well as the importance of their workplace in their relationship, he decides to propose during Toby's going away party.
Having felt that the moment was no longer appropriate, Jim doesn't propose, leaving Pam (who already suspected that Jim would propose that night) visibly disappointed .
In a talking head, Jim reveals that after Toby's party he and Pam talked and decided they would rather not get engaged yet since Pam would be spending the summer in New York studying graphic design at the Pratt Institute and they both didn't want to spend the first few months of their engagement apart.
Throughout the second season, Pam's romantic feelings for Jim become more evident although Pam herself seems to be ignorant or in denial of their existence.
