‘It was amazing. It was very nice. We had many special surprises – and it was fantastic. Really, ”she gushed.

Ellen asked her if there were “things that came up that all of you had forgotten?”

Ellen laughed as she brought up a popular photo of the entire cast of Friends after jumping into the fountain featured in the show’s opening title.

After the host asked whose idea it was to come in, Courteney clarified, “Well, it certainly wasn’t mine.”

Not a fan: According to Courteney, the cast sat in the fountain for a long time.  'Someone thought that would be a lot of fun, and let me tell you, it's no fun.  It's no fun dancing in a fountain for hours on end '

According to her, the plaster has been sitting in the fountain ‘for a long time’.

‘Someone thought that would be a lot of fun, and let me tell you, it’s no fun. It’s no fun dancing in a fountain for hours on end. ‘

She remembered Matthew Perry, whom she didn’t know well at the time, jokingly, “I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t in this fountain.”

Ellen wondered why it was taking so long and suggested someone just keep them in there to teach them a lesson.

Remote roommates: In another part of the interview, Ellen revealed that she was staying at Courteney's house while she was away because she sold her Beverly Hills home and needed temporary shelter to stay with her wife Portia de Rossi.

She interrupted the conversation to play a humorous video she had filmed at Courteney’s house.

As she went through a closet in search of office supplies, she found a strange new gift package, “Undies for Two,” which had a man and a woman fitting on the box in single panties.

The Finding Nemo star clarified that it was her wife Portia’s assets that were on Courteney’s side.
