Kelly leaves to go to a customer meeting and comes back in the middle of a game where everyone in the room has to put a card with a specific race on their forehead (with the race being unknown to themselves), and then must treat everyone as if they were the race on their card.Michael, frustrated that no one is playing properly, attempts to demonstrate how to play, by approaching Kelly as she walks into the room and speaking in a stereotypical Indian accent.
Unlike Angela, who cannot bring herself to follow Kelly's advice and say "I'm sorry" to irate customers, Kelly demonstrates notable skill at soothing the angry callers.
In "The Job," Ryan abruptly ends his relationship with Kelly after receiving a promotion to the corporate headquarters.
For instance, she wins the "Spicy Curry" award at the 8th Annual Dundie Awards.
She angrily questions an evasive Michael about why she got the award.
She dresses up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz on Halloween, which prompts Michael to say, "Interesting take on Dorothy" followed by his suggesting that she wear a soccer uniform and dress like Jess Bhamra, a character of Indian descent in Bend It Like Beckham.
During the company "Christmas Party," Kelly gives a possibly inebriated kiss to Dwight, possibly due to his comment in "Diversity Day," although this plot line did not develop (Dwight was already dating Angela).
In the episode "Take Your Daughter To Work Day," we see Kelly's manipulative side, after she witnessed Stanley's teenage daughter shadowing Ryan.
Kelly lies and tells Stanley that Ryan flirted with the teenager, after which Stanley berates Ryan.
Instead, Kelly was involved in a wildly uneven relationship with Ryan Howard, the office temp.
