Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow Nailed a ‘Friends’ Trivia Game

Ross’ epic lightning round? Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow deserve the Geller Cup after crushing Friends trivia during an episode of CBS’s Celebrity Name Game.

The former costars threw back to their beloved NBC series in a 45-second bonus round. Cox, 52, shouted out clues while Kudrow, 53, answered the questions — and she didn’t disappoint.

“Where we had coffee,” Cox said. Kudrow replied: “Central Perk!”

In another question, Kudrow had to guess Jennifer Aniston’s name. “We had lunch with her every day!” the Cougar Town alum said. “She was on the show!”

The longtime pals got a kick out of the competition — and Kudrow didn’t break a sweat. She also got questions correct about Chandler Bing, Joey Tribbiani’s catchphrase and her character’s famous “Smelly Cat” tune. She got tripped up only once, when name-dropping Ugly Naked Guy.

Cox and Kudrow played Monica Geller and Phoebe Buffay on the comedy for 10 seasons from 1999 to 2004. They starred opposite Aniston, 47 (Rachel Green), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and David Schwimmer (Ross Geller).

Back in January, the cast — minus Perry — reunited to honor legendary TV creator James Burrows. The Odd Couple star, 47, couldn’t attend because he was rehearsing for his play The End of Longing in London at the time.

Schwimmer, 49, opened up about the special event during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “Well, it was just lovely to be in the same room and to honor Jimmy, who we all really love,” the People v. O.J. Simpson actor said that month. “He’s a prolific director, and he really helped forge the cast as an ensemble and really clarified all those relationships from the get-go, so it was lovely to be there.”
