If you've ever wondered what it would be like to text Dwight Schrute from The Office, now you have proof that it would be as random and great as you'd expect.

E! News reports that Dwight actor Rainn Wilson posted a screenshot of a couple of texts he recently shared with his Office co-star Ellie Kemper, who played Erin Hannon in the NBC series. As seen below, the conversation begins with Wilson bluntly asking a very Dwight-like request: “Can I borrow 17K?”

Texts with @elliekemper

Kemper, being the good friend she is, promptly answers, “Yes. But can you tell me what it’s for?” A fair follow up. Wilson replies, “I’m sorry I can’t do that,” to which Kemper states, “Why do you make loving you so damn hard.”

The second part of the conversation offers Kemper a (very strange) gig. Wilson asks, “Will you be our surrogate? I want another baby and you’re an ideal breeder.”

Kemper surprisingly doesn’t say no, despite the fact that she just had her second baby, and instead goes into negotiations, replying, “I could…but how much $?”

Wilson responds, “$250k,” and Kemper immediately agrees, “Yes. I’ll do it,” but then asks, “Will you provide medical care?”

Wilson takes another page from Dwight’s book and answers, “I’m sorry, no. That will be deducted.” Kemper states, “That’s fair.” He then adds another stipulation to the contract, writing, “Also it MUST be male or no deal.” Kemper simply answers again, “Also fair.”

This hilarious interaction has made many fans desperate for a reboot or reunion even more than they already were. One thing's for sure, based on these texts, the content is definitely still alive.
