I went back and watched "Goodbye Toby" again last night, and I noticed how even at the beginning, Holly made Michael more... lovable. He's more self-aware and just a better version of Michael when he's around her..
My favorite moment of "Goodbye Toby" was when she touched his arm and they both got flustered but Michael didn't get all spastic about it until he was talking to the cameras. He suddenly had some self control which he never had with Jan or Carol.

Here is why I am in love with this couple: the writers found a way to make Michael date someone without
A) changing Michael
B) making the girl crazy
Carol dumped Michael as soon as she understood what dating Michael Scott was really about. Jan... well, we all know about Jan. But Holly legitimately likes Michael, and is still an intelligent, likable woman. I know she's not supposed to join the show as a regular, so I guess they'll have to break them up somehow, but I would be extremely sad to see them (and her) go. Holly's TH last night was adorable.

After last night's episode, it looks like David Wallace will be the one to break them up. His TH at the very end the show that he didn't know they were dating seemed awfully ominous for Michael/Holly. If Wallace does do something, that would really be a shame, because M/H are finally hitting their stride, so to break it up seems so cruel! They were adorable last night, and it's nice to see Michael genuienly happy with someone who's not ashamed of him, or afraid to be affectionate with him (although maybe Holly doesn't know him well enough yet...).
ETA: Just to be clear, I don't know what's going to happen, so my post is pure speculation based on Thursday's episode.

Holly is a nice dorky companion for Michael. It would be interesting to hear the character's backstory.

My guess is that David Wallace won't want Michael in another office relationship because of the Jan fiasco. I just hope they don't close the door on her altogether.
That was my first thought, too. The only issue I had was he technically wouldn't have the RIGHT to argue that. He wasn't in the company before their flirtation began (at least not very long before), and has no frame of reference to what exactly messed Jan up or if Michael really had any responsibility for it (I say he didn't).
And they're not in the same chain of command so I don't see why it would be against any big rules. The only thing I could see being a problem is if she didn't report it. But it's only been three dates. Should she report it as a relationship from the first "Want to go out?" If they find out she shirked other responsibilities because of her relationship with Michael, then it would make some sense. Not much but...
