Mindy Kaling And BJ Novak Joked About Their "Insanely Complicated Relationship" At The 2022 Emmys

"That show would take up your whole life."

You're likely aware that Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak have a, uh, storied history.

Well, the two reunited to present the "Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series" award at the 2022 Emmys — and I'm not saying that this was intentional, but they did walk out to the song "Baby Love" by the Supremes.

"To all the nominees, we just want to say, 'Congratulations, you lazy sons of bitches,'" Mindy began. "We came up during network sitcoms — 22 episodes a year."

BJ continued, "And that show would take up your whole life. No time for other projects."
