"The One With All the Poker" is a Friends classic.

From Phoebe being Phoebe and "realizing" that "joker" is "poker" with a "j" to Ross awkwardly flirting with Rachel, it's just a wonderful episode filled with the six friends being adorable with each other.

From Phoebe being Phoebe and "realizing" that "joker" is "poker" with a "j" to Ross awkwardly flirting with Rachel, it's just a wonderful episode filled with the six friends being adorable with each other.

But to make us love the episode even more than we already do, the cast revealed during NBC's James Burrows special that "The One With All the Poker" was actually inspired by the real-life games of poker the six actors played with each other on set.

THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. THEY REALLY, REALLY DO.

After Matt LeBlanc said that Burrows — aka Jimmy — encouraged the cast to get along outside of filming (d'aww), Lisa Kudrow started talking about how they all used to play poker together in an attempt to become real-life best friends.

And that's when Jennifer Aniston got excited and said, "They wrote an episode about it, actually!"

That's right — the onscreen BFFs were also offscreen BFFs, and they were so damn cute together that their poker friendship had to be shared with the rest of the world.

The only question that remains is: Did Aniston ever have to tell David Schwimmer that his fly was open during one of their poker games?
