Matthew Perry Hid A Secret 'Friends' Tribute In His London Play
But if you were lucky enough to grab a ticket in the UK (or New York, where it's now showing in an even smaller theatre) did you recognise the Friends reference hidden within? Perry wrote in a naughty jibe at an old rival show...
“Why is every single episode of NCIS the exact same thing?” says Perry's character, Jack.
Actress Jennifer Morrison responds as Stephanie: “You know what? You are right. There is some sort of crime. Mark Harmon comes in and solves it. It’s the exact same thing over and over again.”
Jack replies: “And like 17 million people watch that shit every week."
Speaking of the acerbic line about the CBS show, Perry told The Hollywood Reporter:
“That was bitterness because that was the one show that kept beating Friends".
Riskily, he's just wrapped CBS' 'The Odd Couple' and is featured in 'The Good Fight' - but it seems he hasn't had any repercussions from the network just yet. Let's hope it stays that way...
