  • The reason the Jim-Pam-Karen love triangle worked so well was because of how fun, snappy and likable Jones made her character. When Pam revealed her feelings in episode 3x23 - Beach Games, you really felt for Karen when she said how hurt she felt and, indeed, called Pam a bitch. That's a delicate balancing act, but Jones really pulled it off. -- JCaesartalk 01:00, 16 February 2008 (EST)

  • In a show full of big name guest stars her turn as Joy's deaf lawyer is one of the best. Her dealing with Joy's inability to not laugh at her voice, unedjucated ways and general ineptitude was great fun to watch. She made great use of subtle and not so subtle disapproving looks. --the-jam
