Match and the Anniversary Date

Jim: [regarding Pam’s father] What did he say? Is it my fault?
Pam: Yeah. He said that you told him much you love me. About how you feel when I walk in a room. And about how you’ve never doubted for a second that I’m the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with. I guess he’s never felt that way about my mom, even at their best.
