They’ll be there for us…to play ‘Celebrity Name Game!’ Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow are taking us down ‘Friends’ memory lane on the NBC game show, and you’ve got to see the amazing video of them bouncing off blasts from their sitcom past off each other!
This is must-see TV for any Friends fanatic, as Monica and Phoebe — a.k.a. Courteney Cox, 52, and Lisa Kudrow, 53 — are back on our screens again like time never passed to play Celebrity Name Game. The two are such close pals in real life that their total joy of being to hang out and essentially reminisce about their iconic show is written all over their faces.
In a newly released clip to PEOPLE, the pair are seen in a bonus round on the NBC game show that is all about Friends. For 45 seconds, Courteney got to throw a clue at Lisa who then had to answer as quickly as possible. But after 10 years of working together on the sitcom, they sometimes needed only one word between clue and guesses!
“I was married to him” Courteney said, to which Lisa immediately yelled, “Chandler Bing!” Next up, “Where we had coffee,” and “Central Perk” was Lisa’s immediate answer. She also got the name of the character who worked there, Gunther.
“You sang a song about it,” was Courtney’s most vague clue, but Lisa nailed Phoebe’s infamous “Smelly Cat” song. “We had lunch with her every day, she was on the show,” Court threw out, to which Lisa obviously answered, “Jennifer Aniston” Yep, that was a pretty easy one.
Courtney described, “He was across the way, we’d look at him through binoculars,” to Lisa’s response of “Naked Ugly Guy,” but when she didn’t get the ring point for it she guessed “Ross,” who famously moved into his apartment after bonding in the buff with their gargantuan neighbor. Lisa then reversed the names and correctly got “Ugly Naked Guy.”
“What Joey would say,” was next and Lisa with a big grin mocked the character’s infamous pick up line “How you doin’?” then the clock ran out before they could get to David Schwimmer as the last guess. The ladies then went over and clasped hands in victory as Lisa cheerfully yelled “That was SO good!” Yes it was Lisa, yes it was. Be sure to watch Courteney and Lisa’s full episode of Celebrity Name Game on NBC Sept. 20.
