So no one told us Jimmy Kimmel Live! was going to be this way…
Leave it to late-night host Jimmy Kimmel to finally give us the Friends reunion we’ve been obsessing about for years! Armed with an exact replica of Monica and Rachel’s kitchen and a bit of Friends fan-fiction, Kimmel surprised Jennifer Aniston by asking the actress to reprise her role as Rachel Green and perform a scene from his Friends fan-fic.
While Aniston promptly thwarted Kimmel’s humorous attempt at making her wear “the Rachel wig,” Aniston and Kimmel, who was portraying Rachel’s on-again/off-again boyfriend Ross, continued to read through Kimmel’s script until they were interrupted by two familiar faces: Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow!
After the audience applause subsided, Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe continued with the scene until a confused Kudrow asked why she was delivering Joey Tribbiani’s “How you doing?” catchphrase.”What happened to Joey, and where’s Chandler?” Cox asked.
“They’re dead,” Kimmel deadpanned. “Yeah, Marcel the monkey bit them and gave them monkey rabies and they died. Now can everyone please try acting like you’ve been on a TV set before and read the lines?”
