Jennifer Anison & Lisa Kudrow Borrowed This Iconic 'Friends' Line From Matthew Perry

Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow reunited on a virtual call to promote the upcoming Friends reunion and reflect on the hit television series for Variety‘s Actors on Actors feature.

As the two discussed their new projects, Lisa and Jennifer also brought up watching old Friends episodes.

“I love stumbling on a Friends episode,” Jennifer admitted. “This one time I was with Courteney [Cox], and we were trying to find something to reference, an old Friends thing. And then we stumbled on — there’s bloopers online — and we sat there at the computer like two nerds watching these bloopers laughing at ourselves.”

Lisa adds, “I’ve done it too. I’ve done that, hours watching bloopers.”

Lisa also admitted that she borrowed the iconic “My eyes, my eyes” line from Matthew Perry.

“When we’re at Ross’ and we’re seeing Monica and Chandler start undressing each other in front of the window. And then, [I’m like], ‘My eyes! My eyes!’,” she recalled the scene. “That’s how Matthew Perry said things.”

She went on, “I actually asked his permission before we shot it. I was like, ‘I don’t know if you’ve seen the rehearsals, but I’m saying ‘My eyes! My eyes!’ the way you do. So I just need to know that that’s OK with you. If not, I’ll say it a different way.’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, go for it.’”

Jennifer added, “I feel like Matthew required us to ask permission when we borrowed Chandler’s cadence. We were like, ‘But it’s flattering.’ I think it’s going to be really fun also when we, if we ever get out of quarantine, get to do our reunion show.”
