Happy Birthday to one of our favorites, Mindy Kaling! Because it’s her special day, we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite moments from her time playing Kelly Kapoor on The Office. Hopefully this post is better than Dwight’s idea of a birthday party for Kelly.

This Day Is Bananas:
When there is a product recall at Dunder Mifflin, Kelly has to train the Accounting Department in customer service. It was b-a-n-a-n-a-s.

Kelly’s personal updates:
After Jim returns from Stamford, Kelly just has to tell him everything new that’s happening in her life.

It’s An Emergency:
Kelly has a good excuse for wearing white to Phyllis’ wedding.

Talking Smack:
Kelly explains the difference between talking smack and talking trash when Jim and Darryl challenge each other to a ping pong game.

Oh My God, Ryan Is Back:
After Ryan returns from his high horse at corporate, Kelly can’t believe it. But don’t worry, she won’t get too attached. She won’t she won’t she won’t she won’t…

I’m like, really smart now:
Kelly returns from a business program and can totally tell you about the top companies.

Kelly Kapoor, Business Bitch:
During Andy’s business seminar, Kelly introduces herself like any normal person would.
