[MUSIC] Close your eyes. [MUSIC] See with mine. [MUSIC] You were a top student, but look at you now. You can't keep using your father's disappearance as an excuse to act out. Is that his work? What's it about? Their Dad, he wanted to touch the stars. [MUSIC] Imagine that the ant here, wants to get to her other hand. It's quickest option is to walk across the string. But it turns out, a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points, not if you, You use fifth dimension. It's outside of the rules we know as time and space. So? The ant arrives in my hand instantaneously. So you fold space? More like you wrinkle it. [MUSIC] Where are we? We heard a cry out in the universe. My father's alive. We believe he is. And we're here to help you find him. We are in search of warriors. Warriors who serve the good in the light in the universe. You're Kidding. Do I look like I'm kidding? A little. I'm not I'm not.

If only we could all be this friendly with our former flames!

Despite their romantic history, Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak are still amazing friends, trading oh-so-sweet sentiments on social media for all the world to see.

Kaling's new movie, A Wrinkle in Time, came out this week, and her BFF Novak noticed a pretty serendipitous promotion for the highly-anticipated film. On Twitter, the 38-year-old actor and producer explained that he spotted Kaling's face right outside the building where she first lived in L.A.

"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."

If you're not up-to-date on the history between these two, let us fill you in. Way back when, Kaling and Novak played an on-screen couple on The Office, and it would seem their romance spilled over into real life.

“Complicated,” was the word Novak used to describe his relationship with Kaling to People in 2014. “A really complicated person and a really complicated friendship, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”

Kaling had similar sentiments, calling their relationship "weird as hell" and impossible to define.

“I will freely admit: My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend,” Kaling told InStyle back in 2015. “I guess you could describe our relationship as a ‘romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,’ but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status.”

That was all several years ago, but romance rumors were sparked once again this year when the pair attended the 2018 Oscars together.

We can definitely respect these two being formerly-romantic BFFs, but we also wouldn't be mad if they were to get together again. Just sayin'.
