Andy Buckley is pretty spot-on in pointing to the “nice guy” quote as a distillation of David Wallace’s core opinions about Michael Scott. No matter how frustrating Michael got, and no matter how disastrous and awkward he could make a situation simply by being in the near vicinity, his actions were rarely, if ever, malicious. And at times, he was actually pretty good at his job in ways that made him stand apart from other Dunder-Mifflin managers. So in David’s eyes, that was enough to put Michael in the “nice guy” column, which is always better than landing in the “hopeless douchebag who deserves to get smooshed by a fridge from Bob Vance Refrigeration” column.
