All of the BJ quotes from the article, “And God Created Mindy,” in Elle Magazine (Picture from 2014 SAG Awards After Party):

"A friend of mine who doesn’t know Mindy told me that for a year she considered Mindy’s book one of her closest friends,” say fellow Office vet B.J. Novak, Kaling’s ex-boyfriend and current collaborator/best friend. “People really respond to her voice. It’s extremely intelligent without being the least bit pretentious.”
"She’s a gangster," Novak says, "And guys respond to that. This is not a girl who waits by the phone. This is a girl who picks up the phone and calls whoever she wants."
Kaling’s habit of diving headlong into every detail is ingrained (“She has a big me-too-ism in her,” Novak says. “She always wants to know what everyone else is doing and if that’s more fun.”), but it also served as a desperately needed diversion when her mother, a real-life ob-gyn, died of pancreatic cancer on the day that FOX green-lit The Mindy Project.
"We learned most things on The Office that a person can learn in television,” Novak says. “The one thing The Office didn’t teach us is how to lead, how to be a star. Mindy had to find that out for herself.”
