Happy Friday, The Office fans!

To celebrate the end of the week, Mindy Kaling shared an amazing gem on Instagram that has Kelly and Ryan shippers in quite a tizzy.

“This is 25! Flashback Fridayz courtesy of Jenna Fischer,” Kaling, 36, captioned a picture of her and her former Office costar B.J. Novak, also 36.

The two played polar opposites Kelly Kapoor and Ryan Howard, providing the hit NBC comedy with its most adorably dysfunctional couple.

They also dated on and off in real life while filming the series and have remained close friends since their split – though The Mindy Project star described their relationship as "weird as hell" to PEOPLE last fall when discussing her 2015 book, Why Not Me?

She also insisted she’s only been able to “date people that I work with or that I’ve gone to school with.”

“It’s like I need to be pressed into a mandatory situation with someone for many years in order to develop romantic feelings,” she said. “So that’s not very helpful for other people.”

The exes are also reportedly working on a book together.
