A Friends reboot will probably never happen, so whenever one of the cast members reference the show in any way, we get very excited.

Courteney Cox, who played Monica Geller in all 10 seasons of the hit NBC series, has been keeping our memories of the show alive and well since she joined Instagram, taking us back to iconic places and iconic scenes in a number of brilliant videos.

And now the actress has shared another video on her Instagram page, and it sees her attempt to recreate one of Monica's famous catchphrases – only it doesn't go down too well with the younger generation.

"So I'm trying to pass on the legacy and teach the younger kids how to say 'I know' as Monica would," she explains in the clip. "Let's see how it goes."

Unfortunately, while we might all get the "I KNOW!" reference – mainly due to our age (sob) and incessant streaming – it just doesn't go down too well with the member of the younger generation that Courteney was trying to teach, who spent the rest of the clip firmly refusing to play ball.

Courteney also recently treated us to a mini Friends reunion, when she shared an adorable photo of herself with her former co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow on Instagram during a birthday get together.

"How lucky am I to celebrate my birthday with these two??? I love you girls. So much," Courteney wrote.



Despite Jennifer Aniston admitting she'd be up for a Friends reboot, we're not too sure it would work and neither are the creators of the show.

Co-creator Marta Kauffman recently made it clear that it's never going to happen, when asked (again) by Associated Press.

"Why mess up a good thing? We wouldn’t want a reunion to disappoint fans," she said.

All 10 seasons of Friends are streaming now on Netflix.
