Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres after the recent “Friends” reunion, Courteney Cox revealed that the memorable dance around the fountain that was the show’s intro was a total “nightmare” to film. Regardless of how much splashing and dancing there was during that scene, the actress recalled that she and her castmates spent a lot of time at the fountain. “I don’t know who, somebody thought that would just be really fun,” Cox added. “it’s not fun to be dancing in a fountain for hours and hours.”
As taxing as it may have been, thankfully, there was one member of the group who, at the time, was happy to joke about the whole ordeal. Cox explained that Matthew Perry proclaimed at one point, “I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t in this fountain.” To be honest, we can’t think of a time without it.
