"I'm gonna help you because I have 65 million followers. I know how to do this," Ellen replied. "We're gonna do something that's gonna be creative. Look what I got -- I got a set over here for us."
As Ellen guided Courteney to the other side of the stage, a recreated set of Central Perk -- the fictitious coffeehouse made famous on the long-running sitcom -- appeared. Courteney was thrilled, especially because Ellen managed to get the actual couch! The two cozied up next to each other and pretend-drank from their giant coffee mugs as someone from Ellen's team took their photo.
"I wish Lisa Kudrow was here because that would be fun," Ellen said. Moments later, "Phoebe" appeared and made her way to the set while the "Friends" theme song blared and the audience erupted in cheers. (Some people cried, and we don't blame them.)
"This is a shock!" Courteney said, hugging her former co-star. "This is my first Instagram post? Oh, my God -- it's downhill after this!"
Courteney thanked Lisa for the surprise, to which she replied, "I wanted to be there for you."
