Many have tried to organize an official Friends reunion in the decade since NBC’s beloved show went off the air — but we came as close as we likely ever will on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night. The late-night host asked Jennifer Aniston to perform some fan fiction in an impeccably re-created version of Monica and Rachel’s (and later Monica and Chandler’s) kitchen.
Halfway through the sketch, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow joined in the fun and the audience members — rightly — lost their minds. Particularly when they spoke the lines of the Friends theme song.
It’s enough to make you wish the cast would just cave already and give us the reunion we want/need/deserve. The 20th anniversary of the premiere is Sept. 22, so Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, get on it.
