Now we don’t want to step on anyone’s toes here, but we have to say that we’re probably the single biggest fan of the TV show FRIENDS. No, this is not up for discussion. Anything you have to say on the subject is a moo point. A cow’s opinion. It doesn’t matter.
Anyway, our point being that we can pretty much remember everything about every single FRIENDS episode. We can recite lines along with the show, sing all of Phoebe’s songs by heart, debate Ross and Rachel’s relationship status to the ends of the earth, and even tell you that Monica wore a green top with black trim in the episode when she puts a Turkey on her head.
The only people that we would admit could remember more about FRIENDS than us is the cast members themselves. But according to a new interview with Courtney Cox, that doesn’t actually seem to be the case!
Courtney, who played Monica Geller for the show’s 10 seasons, joined Jimmy Kimmel Live! via video link amid the coronavirus pandemic yesterday.
During the interview they of course got to talking about the FRIENDS reunion, which was due to film earlier this week but was put on hold due to the coronavirus.
While that news was hard enough to swallow, wait until you try this piece of info on for size. During the interview, Courtney said that she literally doesnn’t remember being on FRIENDS. A show she was a part of for 10 freaking years!
“I don’t remember even being on the show,” she told Jimmy Kimmel during a segment called ‘Quarantine Monologue’.
“I remember, obviously, loving everybody there and having fun, and I remember certain times in my life that I was there, but I don’t remember episodes! I would never pass, I’d fail every test!”
Sorry, WHAT?! Also we have to point out how ironic it is that she doesn’t remember because that’s very un-monica like behaviour…
“Do you even remember your character’s name?” Kimmel joked.
“Yes, it’s Monica. I do know that,” she replied with a chuckle.
Thankfully Courtney is using her self-isolation time to refresh her memory, telling Jimmy that she’s started binging FRIENDS with her boyfriend Johnny McDaid and daughter Coco.
“I decided during this time, you know people love the show so much, I decided to binge-watch ‘FRIENDS’,” she said. “I just started Season 1. It’s really good.”
Yeah we know Courtney. We Know!
If you don’t believe that Courtney knows literally nothing about FRIENDS Jimmy then put her to the test against his cousin Anthony, who like us is a mega fan of the show.
It’s safe to say that she didn’t win… She didn’t even get one question right! Lucky her and Rachel’s apartment wasn’t on the line this time…
