Looking back with a smile. The cast of Friends has spoken out many times since the series ended in 2004, reminiscing about the show and its many memorable moments.
Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow starred in 236 episodes over 10 seasons starting in 1994. However, there were many favorite moments that didn’t make it on screen – like like the cast resting between scenes.
“This time I was with Courteney and we were trying to find something to reference, an old Friends thing,” Aniston told Variety in June 2020. “And then we stumbled upon – there were errors online – and we sat there in front of the computer like two nerds looking at these mistakes and laughing at ourselves.”
She also revealed that she often watched the show while it was on and couldn’t help but remember every time the actors made each other laugh between scenes.
“This is what I love,” Aniston told Kudrow at the time, “which is when I watch an episode, I often remember where we were in the scene,” Aniston told Kudrow at the time. “You and I will always have a good laugh because you have this amazing ability — you will hit your bottom line and you will do this adorable thing when you are about to collapse. You would say the punchline and always turn to the audience and say, ‘I’m sorry, it’s really funny.’” However, each actor has episodes that stick with each of them in different ways. distinctive. Kudrow and Aniston both said they hope that the entire cast can watch the show together as a group — which is why Kudrow hasn’t seen much of it before. That said, she has a very good memory of “The One Where Everybody Finds Out,” in which the gang learns of Monica and Chandler’s secret relationship. “I stole [‘My eyes! My eyes!’] from Matthew Perry. That’s how Matthew Perry says things,” the Space Force actress said. “I actually asked his permission before we shot it. I said, ‘I don’t know if you’ve seen the rehearsal, but I’m saying ‘My eyes! My eyes!’ how you do it. So I just need to know that’s okay with you. If not, I’ll say it another way.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, go ahead.’”
