While we’re still (very patiently) waiting for that long-awaited Friends reunion, it seems the cast are already getting back into character.
Courteney Cox has given us a glimpse into her Monica-like tendencies with a new Instagram video where she asks her followers to “tell me you’re a Monica without telling me you’re a Monica” – a play on the widely-used TikTok phrase for showing people your habits without actually saying the words.
In the video (which has been ‘liked’ over 1.3 million times at the time of writing), Courteney shows the inside of her cutlery draw, her spice draw and her highly-organised cupboard. At the end she comes back into the frame to utter one of Monica’s most iconic lines: “I know”.
Courteney’s character in Friends, Monica Geller was known for being the Type-A, mother figure of the friend group. She would obsessively clean, cook and everything had to be in order and placed exactly where she wanted it to (lucky she was so lovable).
Courteney captioned the Instagram video with “Am I the only one?” and fans were quick to react with their delight. One user wrote: “Thanks for making my day!” while another added “Okay now I love you even more.”
Another fan commented: “Show us the secret closet” in reference to the episode where Chandler discovers all of Monica’s mess is in the closet that remains shut in her New York City apartment (and no, Richard wasn’t kept in there as he originally thought).
Courteney is set to appear alongside fellow Friends cast members, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer in HBO Max’ Friends reunion show which is expected to be unscripted. The show was originally meant to air last year but filming was delayed due to the pandemic and is only now being filmed.
Last month, Chandler was voted as the best Friends character out of the core cast of six after Ranker.com received nearly 150,000 votes. Joey came in second, Phoebe third, Rachel fourth, Monica fifth and Ross was last.
