Alert. Alert. We need a time machine. We repeat. We need a time machine. And make it snappy, y'all.
In case you missed it, Matthew Perry sent Friends fans into a sick tailspin of despair, thinking about the additional Friends season could have been when he hosted Piers Morgan Tonight on Friday "If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped [doing the show]," Perry told his good friend and former co-star Lisa Kudrow
Well, while Doc tries to fix our Flux Capacitor, we sat down with Kudrow herself to get more torturous specifics.
"I think [Friends] could have gone on," Kudrow told me during a sit-down interview promoting her Showtime series Web Therapy. "It could have gone on. It's just a point of view, whether you want to go out when you're still hot, or wait until they ask you to stop. And it just depends on what you're comfortable with."
Hinting that perhaps she personally would have lobbied to do more, Kudrow added, "I don't ever really feel the need to leave a party early. I don't care what other people think. If I'm having fun, I want to stick around."
So what would another season or two of Friends have looked like?
"The great thing about being an actor on that show," Kudrow says, "is that the fabulous writers, that would have been their thing, figuring out how to keep Ross and Rachel apart longer."
Oh, well, hold up now, that probably would have been super annoying. Another year or two of the soul-mate lobsters doing their "on a break", "will they or won't they" dance? Maybe we can be OK with how it all went down after all…
Lisa Kudrow's Web Therapy airs Tuesdays at 11 on Showtime, and Steve Carell is coming up as a guest!
