You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have… this Facts of Life selfie.

Lisa Whelchel, Blair Warner on the long-running sitcom, shared a selfie with her former The Facts of Life costar Charlotte Rae—Mrs. Garrett to devoted Facts fans—after the two grabbed lunch. "She gave me some good advice. (Just like old times.:)," Whelchel said in the Instagram post.

Rae, 88, is still acting. The Facts of Life star will appear on Disney Channel's Girl Meets World and previously popped up on Pretty Little Liars.

Whelchel, who recently competed on CBS' Survivor, reunited with another former costar, Kim Fields aka Tootie on The Facts of Life, for a Hallmark Channel movie For Better or For Worse premiering July 19.

The cast of The Facts of Life—except Nancy McKeon—reunited on screen in 2001 for The Facts of Life Reunion TV movie. In 2011, the cast reunited for the TV Land Awards and a Good Morning America interview. Rae, Whelchel, Field, McKeon, Mindy Cohn, Cloris Leachman and Geri Jewell all took part.

Now, who can get all the Eastland girls in a selfie with Mrs. Garrett? Lisa Whelchel, the task is yours to complete!
