With the holidays just around the corner, alums Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey got together to bake some gingerbread cake pops. But, before they could get down to the glorious baking, the pair hilariously attempted to recreate a brief-yet-beloved scene from their hit show’s fourth season.
Fans will remember that when Meredith (Kate Flannery) is hit by Michael’s (Steve Carell) car, the whole gang is forced to visit her in the hospital, including Angela (Kinsey), who asks her boyfriend, Dwight (Rainn Wilson), to care for her ill cat. However, when he later tells her that Sprinkles the cat died and is in her freezer, she suspects foul play. But before their confrontation, she talks with Pam (Fischer) about her suspicions. This is the scene the pair decided to recreate.
Although the old scene is brief, the friends struggle to make their way through the dialogue without cracking up. Along the way, Kinsey admitted that this is why they had so few scenes together because they continually kept each other laughing!
My bff, @msjennafischer , stops by our kitchen and we “try” to re-enact a scene from The Office! It went from giggles to tears! For the whole scene and to see us make delicious Gingerbread Cake Balls and ALOT of #twss moments click on the link in my bio! ❤️🎄 pic.twitter.com/GSqK1dUpVi
This touching bit of nostalgia arrives just weeks after a huge segment of the sprawling cast reunited for brunch including Wilson, Fischer, Kinsey, Ed Helms, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Leslie David Baker, Creed Bratton, Oscar Nunez, Paul Lieberstein and series creator Greg Daniels.
Fischer admitted on Twitter that they were attempting to recreate a group holiday photo from the show despite a number of co-stars being unable to attend that day.
We were attempting to recreate this photo :) Happy Holidays! We missed you Steve, Ellie, John, BJ, Mindy, Craig and Kate! We will see you soon! pic.twitter.com/P1kvaxn8FS
"I don't want to be a jerk about it, but I think people who like the show originally would want it to come back exactly the way it was, but that could never happen because all the writers would be different, and I just wouldn't want to recreate something that was a very, very specific moment in time," he explained. "I kind of don't want to do it because I love the show so much. I think people would be disappointed, I really do."
