The Best TV Friend Ensembles Part 2: Co-Workers Edition

http://www.abbyrosedalto.com/2014/05/the-best-tv-friend-ensembles-part-2-co.html
I recently posted a list of my 20 favorite TV "friend" ensembles (inspired by the 10th anniversary of the Friends series finale). I've always seen a lot of myself and my friends in some of TV's quirkiest cliques, particularly how a lot of those friendships wouldn't necessarily seem to make sense on paper, but yet totally did anyway. I asked for readers to let me know if I left out any of their favorite TV friendships... and apparently I left out an entire category known for friendly bonding: co-workers.

I received the following comment on the Friends post:
I would argue that many of my most lasting and valued friendships started as co-workers, so I'd (ahem dump) change some of these to include things like, The Mindy Project, Parks & Rec, The Office, Better Off Ted, Scrubs...God, it's a whole new post so, yeah sorry. 
I've honestly never had a close group of co-worker friends (primarily due to the nature of my work) so as much as I do love the friendships on those shows, and others like them, those didn't resonate with me as much as shows with quirky groups of friends like Friends, How I Met Your Mother or Happy Endings. However, when you look at these friendships truly as friendships (and not just co-worker relationships) then they really are kind of amazing. So yes, the commenter was correct - it could be an entirely whole new post and now it is.

So here are my favorite co-worker friendship cliques from TV:
