Friends and fans alike congratulated the cast of A Wrinkle In Time as the movie finally hit theaters last weekend. This was no exception for Mindy Kaling—who plays Mrs. Who in the film—and who received the most endearing tweet from her best friend BJ Novak last Friday.
“When I met @mindykaling she lived in a small apartment on Fairfax Ave,” Novak wrote. “This is what’s in front of that building today. Congrats Mindy and a future congrats to all those who see you in it and are inspired to do great things.”
The photo included in the tweet was of a giant A Wrinkle In Time movie poster.

Of course, everyone on Twitter thought the message was the cutest, and let Novak know. Many used GIFs and memes from The Office, where most fans know Novak and Kaling as the infamous Ryan and Kelly.
I predict that will be me as well! It's beyond genius. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/ICaGZzEh1E

It can be difficult to separate actors from their characters. I literally first read this like EVEN STILL TODAY, Ryan is stalking Kelly's old place. Then I realized genuinely decent people are celebrating each other. And I know @bjnovak and @mindykaling are more than just actors.

A sweet and meaningful observation, also a personal reminder of your journey as well.
I am brand new Office fan, and am mesmerized by the magic!

Even Kaling responded to Novak’s tweet in the most adorable way.
Oh my god I’m like full crying. I will never be mad at you again https://t.co/aaikJtxSYC

Although Kaling and Novak are not dating, according to People, Novak did accompany Kaling as her date to the Oscars last weekend.
