Steve Carell Surprised Jenna Fischer With an Office Reunion

Yes! God! Please! Yes!

Amanda Bell

It hasn't been that long since we saw the cast of The Office get back together -- just a few months ago, Steve Carell's opening monologue onSaturday Night Livebecame a mini-reunion -- but every time they reunite in front of the cameras it just feels right.

Such was the case on Tuesday's episode of Busy Tonight, when Jenna Fischer celebrated her birthday a little early by opening packages from her co-stars. The biggest gift, saved for last, was Steve Carell himself.

Ellie Kemper sent Fischer raisin crisps to commemorate a massive pig-out session they had together on the set of the show, and BFF Angela Kinsey sent her a bread shirt that she just so happened to be Googling when she got a call from Busy Philips about this surprise. Ed Helms even sent along a banjo to remind her of all his mid-shoot jam sessions with Creed Bratton.

But nothing could compare to the shock and visible glee Fischer experienced when her old pal Steve Carell popped up to wish her a happy birthday in person.

D'aw. The surprise was meant as a gift for his co-star, but obviously it was just as much of a treat for The Office fans. And since Carell is probably still not sold on the idea of a proper revival for the Dunder Mifflin crew, this -- at least for now -- is the only kind of Office reunion we're getting.

The Office is streaming now on Netflix.
