Lisa Kudrow Shares Funny Story About This 'Friends' Prop She Was Gifted by Matthew Perry

If you were wondering what happened to the Cookie Time cookie jar that sat on Monica’s kitchen shelf in Friends, Lisa Kudrow has it!

The 56-year-old actress recalled the funny and cute story about the prop that she ultimately was gifted from the set.

“We’re shooting a scene, years before we were finished, and my line was, ‘Oh! I better get going,’ like, ‘Oh! I’m late, I better get going,’” she explained during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week.

However, Lisa realized that she actually didn’t have a watch and the first thing that she could find that kind of had a clock on it was the cookie jar.

“As the words were coming out, I went, ‘Oh, good. There’s a clock,’” Lisa continued. “I gestured to that, and said, ‘Oh! Look at the time. I gotta get going,’ and during shooting, Matthew [Perry] said, ‘Did you look at the cookie jar and say look at the time?’”

Then, when they wrapped the series, Matthew gifted her with the jar, to remember the improvised line.

“I think the first thing I asked was, ‘This was so nice, did you get permission?’ I mean, my car used to get searched every night when I left,” she shared.
