The Office co-stars Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show to catch up, and they dished about everything from Halloween to hospital visits.

The three women bonded over how tricky it can be to balance work and parenting, something so many fans can relate to.

"That's one of the things we trade messages about all the time...strategizing," Fischer told Clarkson."Strategizing how to be where you need to be for work and how to be home when you need to be home for the important stuff." 

It was so inspiring to hear how much Fischer and Kinsey show up to support each other.

"Many years ago I was working on a new show called Splitting Up Together, and they came to me and said I was going to have to work on Halloween," explained Fischer. "My kids were little at the time, and Halloween was everything to them."

Knowing how hard it was for Fischer to miss the occasion, Kinsey swooped in like a true BBF and saved the day by hosting a pre-Halloween Trick or Treat event, even enlisting the help of her neighbors. 

The gal pals also shared some tips for making it through tedious events from the book they co-wrote, The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office From Two Best Friends Who Were There. 

"We kind of had to learn how to be at these fancy shindigs together, and so we came up with a bunch of these rules," said Fischer.

"Definitely eat, they don't feed you," laughed Kinsey. "And there's a lot of adult beverage."

Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer's rock-solid friendship has been going strong for almost 20 years. After Fischer took a bad fall, fracturing her back in four places, Kinsey rode in the ambulance with her and held her hand at the hospital. 

"My favorite thing was the nurse was like, 'Would you like your friend to step out while we give you a catheter?'" said Kinsey. "And [Jenna] said, 'I'd like her to stay and hold my hand.'"

Now that's what friends are for.
