Jennifer Aniston recently revealed on The Graham Norton Show that she wouldn’t mind doing a Golden Friends reunion, in which the entire cast is of retirement age. We may have some plot ideas already prepared…
At this point, every time a former Friends star gives an interview — regardless of subject — he or she will inevitably be asked about a possible reunion. It’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
So naturally when Jennifer Aniston paid a visit to The Graham Norton Show to promote her new film Horrible Bosses 2 with co-star Jason Bateman, the host shamelessly (as usual) broached the subject of a Friends reunion. It turns out Aniston has a pretty brilliant idea for a reunion special — featuring the elderly versions of your favourite Friends characters!
“At this point, honestly we should just wait… I say we just wait until we’re really much older and be Golden Friends,” Aniston said when Graham Norton posed the question of all questions. “Then you wouldn’t have the comparison.”
Boom! You guys, this opens the floodgates. We have a pretty generous chunk of time before any of the Friends actors hit retirement age, which means we can come up with the best possible plot for this reunion. Which will happen. The people get what they want. Here are just some ideas we threw together (they’re genius):
1. The one with the other Thanksgiving
Let’s make it a holiday — plenty of material to go off of. Obviously Thanksgiving will be an occasion for the whole gang, including their kids, to get together. They can all pile into Chandler and Monica’s place — as is tradition — and maybe Joey can get his head stuck in a turkey again. Some things just can’t change.
2. The one with the vacation
Maybe the whole gang can go on a cruise or just vacation together to take a break from their hectic lives and offspring (or grandchildren). Someone will get locked up somewhere, one couple will have a fight, Joey will hook up with a super-hot woman, and Chandler will give some bad advice to a stranger.
3. The one with the club
Realizing they are not the young, lively people they used to be, the main characters get together to party as they did in their youth. Maybe they’ll go to a club. The comedy practically writes itself.
4. The one with the no coffee
The group reunites in an attempt to support one another in quitting coffee and living a healthier life. We want to see the shakes, the headaches and the fury that years of heavy coffee drinking will surely bring out during withdrawal. It’ll be fun.
