Final Score, +10: Pam trading the iPod to get Jim’s teapot back was a pretty amazing gesture and shows that she does care very much for Jim and their friendship. It’s a little hard to say why Jim took the card back before Pam could read it, was it because he lost his nerve or was it because he decided it wasn’t the right time for it? Regardless, it turned out to be a nice Christmas for them both.
