This Television Episode refers to Heroes
At the end of the episode, Dwight tells the camera " I am not a hero. I am a mere defender of the office. You know who's a real hero? Hiro, from Heroes. That's a hero. Also, Bono."
Roy attacks Jim for kissing Pam, but is subdued by Dwight with pepper spray. Roy is fired, and Jim, feeling guilty about all of the pranks over the years, tries to show his appreciation to Dwight for saving his skin, but each gesture is coolly rejected. Darryl asks for a 10% raise. When he discovers that the raise would make him higher-paid than Michael, Darryl goads Michael into going to Corporate to negotiate his own raise. Jan initially tries to keep their romantic relationship out of the negotiations, but ultimately gives Michael the maximum 12% raise that was authorized, despite his continued inability to properly negotiate. Kevin asks Karen how she feels about Jim being attacked over someone else, and she responds coolly. Pam tells Jim she's sorry that Roy attacked him, but her assurance that her relationship with Roy is over for good is met with polite skepticism. Roy picks up his last paycheck also apologizing to Jim about the whole violent incident and asks Pam to join him for coffee. Their meeting at a local diner is awkward and ends with their relationship (and even friendship) appearing to be over. Roy does not understand his long-time fiancée, especially her choice to not pursue Jim. Angela interviews people from the office to repeatedly hear the tale of Dwight's heroics. Believing themselves to be alone at the end of the day, the two kiss passionately. Jim sees them, and decides that keeping their relationship secret will be his gift to Dwight to make things "even." Andy returns from anger management, and Dwight, unprovoked, subdues him with pepper spray. Toby confiscates the rest of Dwight's arsenal.
