Courteney pledged that "by the end of this quarantine I'm going to know so much more".
"I chose to binge watch Friends", she told Kimmel, "I just started season one". "It's really good!" Cox told Kimmel. Cox asked, befuddled, like the rest of us were when we watched that episode.
The actress appeared on the hit sitcom alongside Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry from 1994 to 2004, and is set to reunite with her co-stars for an HBO Max TV reunion special later this year.
"I don't remember even being on the show", she admitted during Kimmel's "Quarantine Minilogue" segment, matter-of-factly.
'Do you remember your character's name?' he asked.
When an amusingly gobsmacked Kimmel, 52, pushed Cox to explain herself, she responded, "I remember obviously loving everybody there and having fun and I remember certain times in my life that I was there, but I don't remember episodes!" But I don't remember episodes. I would never pass, I'd fail every test!'
"I decided during this time - you know, people love the show so much - I chose to binge-watch Friends", she said, adding that "I just started season one, it's really good!". "I just started season one". And with everyone socially distancing themselves from Central Perk, Cox thought this would be a great time to see what her Friends have been up to.
The actress was unable to answer questions about Monica's first kiss, the person who pees on her leg when she's stung by a jellyfish, and the officiant at Monica and Chandler's wedding, and she ultimately went down 5-0.
It's the one where Courteney Cox forgets she was on one of the most iconic series in television history. "Courteney, you've got to do some binging to catch up", said Kimmel.
"People love the show so much, I chose to binge-watch 'Friends, '" Cox said, clarifying that she recently purchased the series in full on Amazon Prime. The Friends discussion begins at the 9:40 mark.
