Jan Levinson (formerly Jan Levinson-Gould) is played by Melora Hardin. She became known as Michael Scott's superior at the New York City corporate headquarters of Dunder Mifflin, a paper company.

At the onset, Jan is presented as a no-nonsense manager and strong female role model, but she eventually devolves into a total mess, getting divorced, then fired, then - after beginning an on-again, off-again romance with Michael - letting her half-crazy, awkward, neurotic side come through in a big way. What will Jan do next?

David, here it is. My philosophy is basically this. And this is something that I live by. And I always have. And I always will. Don't ever, for any reason, do anything to anyone, for any reason, ever, no matter what. No matter... where. Or who, or who you are with, or, or where you are going, or... or where you've been... ever. For any reason, whatsoever.
