It didn't take long for the official Twitter account for the PATH commuter train line between New Jersey and NY to help by offering the trains' schedules.

On a recent episode of her show, The Mindy Project, Mindy Kaling's character Mindy Lahari made a dig at Newark - and it caught the attention of the city's former mayor and current New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. Either way, it gave us some pretty adorable Twitter banter, and confirmed that Booker, like many, is a fan of The Mindy Project. "I can't believe he came.I guess anything to get out of Newark, huh?"

Some of Berry's classics, covered by hundreds of artists over the decades, include Johnny B Goode and Roll Over Beethoven . He nudges out Little Richard for the top honor and stands a head above Elvis Presley for the coveted King of Rock title.

Later, Booker tweeted to the actress, saying he heard her character had "dissed" Newark and posting a link to an article in Vogue magazine about why Newark is worth visiting. And, PATH train has already sent the schedule. To which she wholeheartedly agreed.

On the show, Kaling's character is surprised Booker attended her friend's party, CNN said. She, in her own way, has given motivation to millions of girls both white and colored that you can get as far as you yourself allow.

"Ouch!" Booker tweeted, accompanied by a broken heart emoji. We can only hope for the best for the two and that they should keep us in the loop like they did with the proposal.
