At the very least, The Office brought Mindy Kaling into my life, for which I’ll be eternally grateful.Source: weedfucker95

“My relationship with my mom is really the single most profound relationship that I’ve ever had in my life,” she tells me. “By the way, it seems like I’m … I’m just blowing my nose. It’s not because I’m sad.” She has allergies and a cold, she promises. But her voice breaks when she starts talking about how she sat down with a pen and paper and asked her mother to give her all the advice she could possibly give her before she died, and Kaling realized she’d never be able to ask her mother for advice again. “I said to her, ‘Mom, I’m going to be so lonely without you.’” She’s crying now but keeps going. “And she just said, ‘You have to be your own best friend. If you always remember that, you will always have someone there with you.’”

Just like my favorite show, The Seinfeld Chronicles.

So many things.
- What is going on over at The Office?
- If Ed Helms is looking at other options why aren’t they movies full time?
- Bill Hader, not long for SNL?
- The West Wing’s Richard Schiff.
That is all.

UO: What is one of the worst ideas you’ve come up with as a writer?
Mindy Kaling: I am constantly made fun of at work for an idea for The Office that Dwight finds an old Willow tree behind Dunder Mifflin that was hollowed out and was a stop for the Underground Railroad. Michael Scott wanted it to become a historical landmark for the town of Scranton, and then they found out it was just a hollowed out tree by some kind of insect or something. It was one of the weirdest and dumbest ideas and I remember pitching it very passionately and to this day I’ll get crap about it.
