Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are getting ready for the premiere of their new series The Morning Show, but fans who've followed the actors throughout their careers know they first were seen together on Friends. Jennifer Aniston, of course, played Central Perk regular Rachel Green; Reese Witherspoon guest starred as her little sister, Jill Green, for a few episodes. In a recent interview, the pair turned the nostalgia dial up to one hundred by recreating one of their iconic scenes together—and it's a joy to watch.
When Aniston and Witherspoon sat down with Access Hollywood last week to discuss The Morning Show, the interviewer brought out a photo of Aniston and Witherspoon across from each other on the Central Perk couch. Aniston immediately recognized the snap from a scene Witherspoon loved. “Is this where you say the line that you love so much?” she asks Witherspoon in the video.
The question ends up being an invitation to recreate their scene. This is, well, we can say the line, Witherspoon says. Do you remember your line?
Aniston doesn't remember, so Witherspoon whispers it in her ear. (Teamwork: We love to see it.)
I say, ‘You can’t have Ross,’ Aniston recites. Then Witherspoon swoops in with the punch line: Can’t have? Can’t have? The only thing I can’t have is dairy.

It's just like the original—just twenty years later. Take a look at the full interview below.
Both actresses have done some reflecting on the show that brought them together in recent weeks. For the November cover of Harper's Bazaar, Witherspoon spoke to Natalie Portman about acting alongside Aniston on Friends in one of her early acting jobs.
