Fans of The Office will appreciate the hell out of this week’s SNL monologue from host Steve Carell, who is a very good sport about the fact that he’s probably asked in every single junket interview he’s ever on if he would be up for a reboot of The Office.

In the monologue, he rejects doing a reboot of The Office, saying that the show has had its run and that he’s happy off doing movies now, but members of the audience — including Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms, and Jenna Fischer — continue to insist that Carell stop being a dick do the reboot.

It is not the most hilarious monologue, but it’s fun to see Carell reunite with at least a few members of The Office to kick off his episode of SNL. There’s a cruel tease there in the end, though, so be warned.
