Missouri's got your back, Jenna Fischer.
The actress, who grew up in St. Louis, suffered an unfortunate wardrobe mishap right before she was set to go on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday.
She had a pretty dress all ready to wear. But the zipper broke at the last minute, and Fischer had to quickly regroup.
And crediting her Missouri roots, she did it with aplomb.
Kimmel looked as shocked as everyone else when Fischer walked out in a white towel wrapped around her torso as if she'd just gotten out of the shower. She wore skinny jeans underneath.
She had the broken dress, too, and laid it on the chair next to her.
“You know, I am a Missouri girl and the show must go on,” she told Kimmel. “I've never been more comfortable.
“I’m mentally freaking out (because) I’m on a talk show in a towel, but I’m physically very comfortable."
Fischer, former star of the hit comedy "The Office," was on the show to promote her new ABC series, "Splitting Up Together." She was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., but considers St. Louis her real hometown. Her parents still live in the suburb Chesterfield; her sister and her family live in St. Louis County. Fischer studied theater and journalism at Truman State University in Kirksville and roots for the St. Louis Cardinals.
In late 2016 Fischer arranged to remodel the kitchen and great room in her sister's house through a series on the home design website Houzz, in which celebrities give home makeovers to relatives, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Her sister, Emily Elmore, a Catholic school teacher, lives in their grandparents' 1,300-square-foot brick ranch house, the fourth generation to live there.
Fischer scored high marks for her Midwestern smarts on Monday — and surprised a bunch of people who didn't know she was from Missouri.
Back home, the St. Louis Blues hockey team came through with an assist.
"Hey @jennafischer, we're sending our favorite Missouri girl a personalized Blues jersey so the next time you have a wardrobe mishap, you have the very best backup plan," the team tweeted.
