They said they'd be "there for you when the rain starts to fall" but one of the "Friends" has squashed any hope of a reunion with the six sit-com favourites.
Speaking to "Heat" Lisa Kudrow, who played the delightfully quirky Phoebe in the series for ten seasons, called the idea of the six key cast members getting back together "ridiculous".
"I feel like I'm just constantly bursting that little bubble of hope, each and every time it's asked," the actress said. "It's been 13 years, 13 years of the same question and right now, or in the future, it's not going to happen. And every time I say that, I get yelled at."
Kudrow continued to trample on every fan's hopes and dreams as she questioned the legitimacy of what the show would even reunite over. "What's it going to be about? Really, how is it going to work? This is what everybody is forgetting."
"They no longer hang out at the coffee house, they have all moved away. Chandler and Monica live upstate, Phoebe and Mike, probably the same. What reason would there be for them all to come together for a significant amount of time?"
All those coffees at Central Perk, just so Chandler and Monica could go live upstate? What about Joey? How is Joey surviving? Is he living in their basement, feeding off of rogue sandwiches that are dropped down some kind of vent? And what about Ross and Rachel?
And even if they DID decided to reunite, Kudrow doesn't even see the logistical reality of it ever happening.
"It would never work because everyone is on a totally, ridiculous work schedule, that's the opposite of someone else. It's even impossible for us to get together for dinner, it's really hard. It's six people, how easy it is for you to get six of your friends together?"
Recently the internet went into meltdown as the cast of "Will & Grace" began to slowly leak photos of themselves on a set, which turned out to be a voting PSA for the 2016 US election. The huge public reaction to the reunion caused NBC to announce that it would be bringing the show back for 10 episodes later this year.
In March Kudrow revealed that the cast HAD gotten together privately for dinner, but still maintained a televised reunion just wouldn't happen. "If we don't tell you that one's coming, and then it doesn't happen, you have no reason to be disappointed," she told the "Today Show", "I'm managing expectations."
So, I guess the "Friends" won't be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
