Pam Beesly has finally made her way back to Chili’s.
For all buffs of The Office, the chain restaurant carries significant meaning and brings back joyous memories. It’s where Michael Scott (Steve Carell) bonded with a prospective client over Chili’s baby-back ribs. But more importantly, it’s where Beesly, or actress Jenna Fischer, got shitfaced over one-too-many drinks at Dunder Mifflin’s annual Dundies celebration during season 2’s “The Dundies.”
On Monday, Fischer paid tribute to her old alter ego by tweeting a selfie in front of the iconic Chili’s. She confided in Twitter and asked, “Should I try to go in?”

The viral tweet provoked feelings of nostalgia on social media, garnering almost 97,000 retweets and over 300,000 likes. In a second post, a cup of coffee was pictured with the words “I feel God in this Chili’s tonight” printed on the mug, referencing Beesly’s alcohol-induced acceptance speech for winning the Whitest Sneakers award.

Chili’s eventually joined in on the fun, congratulating Fischer for her epic return to the establishment.
we hope you felt God tonight.

The mockumentary’s episode is also celebrated as one of the initial (and sweetest) Jim Halpert and Beesly moments.
Not only will this spark some Netflix binging, but it’s sure to evoke feelings of something holy. So don’t worry, Beesly. Your tweet has us feeling God right now.
