Could we BE any more excited? Well, yes, but only if the "Friends" reunion was for a full season instead of an eight-minute bit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

This was most definitely a break, and we're sure glad it's over.

It may not be a movie, holiday special or even a bit featuring the full cast, but Jimmy Kimmel has given fans of the smash '90s sitcom "Friends" the best reason to celebrate since Rachel got off the plane. On "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night, Jennifer Aniston humored her host by acting out some fan fiction he'd written, in which Kimmel would play the Ross to her Rachel.

As luck would have it, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow were in town to help bring his fantasy to life -- which also featured a nearly exact replica of Monica's oft-used kitchen and iconic purple apartment door, yellow frame and all. This was no joincidence with a j, though. Aniston was guesting on Kimmel's late night show to promote her new film, "Life of Crime" (read our review here), and it was announced earlier today the iconic "Friends" coffee shop Central Perk would be opening in New York to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary in late September. 

Sadly, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer did not appear, but seeing Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe together again is still quite the nostalgic jolt for anyone who's tried to master the art of unagi.
