'I don't remember even being on the show. I have such a bad memory,' Cox said before playing the game on Wednesday's episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
Courteney Cox will always be there for Friends fans.
During Wednesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC host quizzed Cox on Friends trivia. She competed against Kimmel's cousin's son Anthony, who 'is crazy for the show.'
Before introducing the segment, the actress, who appeared via video with Kimmel still at home amid the coronavirus pandemic, admitted that she is terrible when it comes to trivia about the beloved show. 'I don't remember even being on the show. I have such a bad memory,' she said. 'I remember obviously loving everyone there and having fun and I remember certain times in my life that I was there, but I don't remember episodes.'
She shared that she plans to take advantage of her time spent at home while social distancing. 'People love the show so much. I decided to binge watch Friends,' said Cox. 'I just started season one. It's really good.'
Anthony soon called in and was surprised to see that he would be competing against Cox in the game centered around her Friends character, Monica. 'This is like the greatest moment of my life,' said Anthony.
Kimmel kicked off the game by asking Cox and Anthony to name Monica's parents names. Anthony correctly answered Jack and Judy. Cox said that she knew the answer, though she would have said the actors' names Elliot Gould and Christina Pickles.
The host next asked who Monica's first kiss was. Anthony won the second round when he correctly answered Monica's brother Ross David Schwimmer. Cox responded, 'Ross was my first kiss?'
'According to Ross, Monica couldn't tell time until she was what age?' asked Kimmel. Cox guessed 22, while Anthony said she was 11. The correct answer was 13, so Kimmel gave the point to Anthony.
Kimmel asked who peed on Monica's leg when she was stung by a jellyfish. Anthony correctly said it was Chandler Matthew Perry, while Cox responded, 'I may have said Matt LeBlanc. I may have said Joey.' She added, 'I like that episode a lot.'
The following question was who officiated Monica and Chandler's wedding, which Anthony correctly said was Joey. 'He was late, right? I think he was late and he ran in,' said Cox.
Anthony won the game after getting every answer right. 'A fair thing to do would be just pick some item out of your house and send it to Anthony,' Kimmel told Cox. She said that she 'absolutely will,' though joked that her Clorox wipes were off limits.

In this edition of TV Bits:Showtime has changed the schedule of Black Monday and two other shows. Watch a trailer for Billions season 5. The Crown was able to beat the coronavirus and wrap early. Star Trek: Short Treks coming to Blu-ray in June. ESPN is airing an encore presentation of O.J.: Made in America.
The coronavirus scare is causing many TV shows to shut down production, which means several things are going to be delayed. Showtime was planning on debuting two episodes of Black Monday season 2 a week, but since the second season hasn’t had a chance to wrap yet, they’re changing things up. Instead, they’ll premiere one episode per week beginning March 22, and continuing through Sunday, April 12. Meanwhile, two of their new documentary shows, Outcry and Love Fraud, are moving to a later date this year.
One upcoming Showtime season that did manage to wrap is Billions season 5, which now has a trailer. In this season, “Bobby Axelrod Damian Lewis and Chuck Rhoades Paul Giamatti see their vicious rivalry reignited, while new enemies rise and take aim. Social impact pioneer Mike Prince Corey Stoll poses a true threat to Axe’s dominance, and Chuck feuds with a formidable district attorney. Taylor Mason Asia Kate Dillon is forced back to Axe Capital, where they must fight to protect their employees and their assets. Wendy Rhoades Maggie Siff reevaluates her loyalties and forges surprising new alliances that put her at odds with both Chuck and Axe. This season, the struggle for power becomes a struggle for survival, and all characters must adapt or risk extinction. Margulies will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author.” The new season debuts on Sunday, May 3.
While many shows are being forced to halt production, Netflix’s The Crown was able to get ahead of the curve and wrap filming on season 4 early. EW says the show, which was shooting in the U.K., rushed through the last of its production to finish a day early, ensuring that the series wouldn’t have to shut down, and that the new season would arrive on Netflix sometime this year. Season 4 is going to be the second-to-last season of the show, with season 5 concluding the saga of Quen Elizabeth II’s reign so far.

John Callahan, best known for All My Children, has died at age 66. His death was revealed by his ex-wife, fellow actress Eva LaRue, who posted a tribute via Instagram on Saturday afternoon.
No cause of death was given.
"May flights of Angels Wing you to your rest my dear friend," wrote LaRue. "Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever. We are devastated — my great friend, co-parent partner, and loving father to Kaya. That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize and to song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two stepping bad ass!"
She went on to call him an "All My Children soap stud," noting that she is "beyond broken hearted" by the loss. Included in the post were several pictures of Callahan with family members and work colleagues.
The actor was born in 1953 in New York and began his career in 1982 in an episode of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. He went on to become a series regular in Falcon Crest from 1986-88, and from there, he joined the cast of Santa Barbara and then All My Children, playing Edmund Grey in the latter daytime soap series for over 300 episodes.
Additional TV credits include Days of Our Lives, Desperate Housewives, Watch Over Me and The Bay. On screen, he had roles in Marvin's Room and Do it or Die, among others. His final roles were in A Doggone Adventure and Loyalty.
On Saturday afternoon, the Daytime Emmys Twitter account also posted about Callahan's passing, writing that they are "devastated" to learn of the actor's passing.
Callahan is survived by his daughter with LaRue, named Kaya.
