Watch Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow absolutely nail this Friends quiz

It’s been an unbelievable 12 years since Friends ended.

But for Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and die-hard fans everywhere, the spirit of the 90s sitcom will live on forever.

So, when the real-life Monica Geller and Phoebe Buffay were challenged to an epic 45-second lightning round Friends quiz, there was no doubt in our minds that they’d ace it.

Appearing on the Celebrity Name Game yesterday, Cox was tasked with the job of describing a character, place or connection to the sitcom without saying the answer.

Kudrow, as you may have gathered, had to try and guess what her co-star was describing (it’s very similar to Articulate).

And, unsurprisingly, they absolutely dominated the game.

“I was married to him,” said Cox, 52, at one point in the round.

An excitable Kudrow, 53, responded almost immediately, correctly guessing the answer to be “Chandler Bing.”


“We had lunch with her every day. She was on the show.”

Kudrow, and everyone watching along at home, immediately answered: “Jennifer Aniston.”

However the two women, who are close friends in real-life, tripped up when it came to the infamous Ugly Naked Guy.

And they completely fell apart when it came to the final question.

Watch Cox and Kudrow play the game for yourself below:

Cox’s impression of David Schwimmer was, if we do say so ourselves, absolutely spot on – and to give Kudrow credit, she did almost get it right.

After all, to many fans, Ross Geller and Schwimmer are one-and-the-same.

However the best thing about the clip was seeing how happy the two women were to be in each other’s company.

The Friends cast rarely appear together on television nowadays, so, when they do, it always makes fans giddy with excitement.

Celebrity Name Game airs on Arena in Australia, and was developed by Cox and David Arquette's Coquette Productions.
