While there have been talks of a Friends reunion for years, Jimmy Kimmel successfully got the three female leads together for a skit on his late night show. Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reprised their roles as Rachel, Monica and Phoebe in a fan fiction scene Kimmel wrote. The late night TV host inserted himself into the scene as Ross. The nostalgic scene took place on a replica of the original set.
While half of the iconic cast were able to participate in the mini Friends reunion, the male actors were noticeably absent. According to Kimmel, Chandler and Joey died when Marcel the monkey bit them both. The scene included a button that played a laugh track and a throw back to the classic sitcom's theme song.
