Dwight refers to Michael as "the one person I have been hired to protect." Because of his authoritative personality, Dwight worships his boss. He sees Michael as a means to an end, and thus bends over backward trying to please him. Dwight is always the first to jump in on Michael's hare-brained schemes but to the contrary of his ideas isn't really the number one in Michael's eyes (Jim Halpert and Ryan Howard seem to come before him).

As well as shown in an earlier episode in the series (The Coup) Dwight really doesn't like Michael as much as he appears to. This is shown after Dwight is tricked into thinking he became the Regional Manager and exposes some truths about their relationship.

Michael finds Dwight irritating, but enjoys the attention and devotion Dwight lavishes upon him.


  • In the episode Dunder Mifflin Infinity, Michael tells Dwight to hang up the phone while Dwight is calling a cab, to pick them up at Lake Scranton, the lake Michael drove them into. Dwight does so immediately and without question.
