Mike's Opinion of Amanda
Mike has an obvious crush on Amanda.
In Dollhouse, Mike gets jealous of Amanda spending so much time with Cameron. He tries to make excuses for why she should stay behind instead of attend the rally at the basketball game then pizza with Cameron. He tells Amanda, under the control of a puppeteer-like collar, that he has always liked her since they were in 5th grade as they dance to a slow song. But to his dismay, Amanda isn't in her right state of mind since is was a doll. She does not remember her identity or recognize Mike and simply tells him that she's never had a ninja boyfriend before. Before he goes to battle against Dollhouse, she tells him that she thinks they would be great together while he tries to tell her that this isn't real. At the end, he accepts the fact that he has to move on and let Amanda go.
At the end of the episode Komodo, he is about to tell Amanda his feelings but watches as she walks past him with Cameron, holding hands. He then proceeds to hit his head on his locker door while Owen tries to comfort him.
