Former Friends co-stars Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow reunited on Piers Morgan Tonight July 26 and agreed that they did not want the sitcom to end in 2004.

Perry filled in for host Piers Morgan and had Kudrow on as a special guest. The pair talked about their memories from Friends and said that they would have wanted to keep the show on air for longer. The television series premiered in 1994 and aired its final episode in 2004.

"I find myself sort of reminiscing about how much fun the show was," Perry said. "If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped."

"Oh, I would keep going," Kudrow responded. "There would have come a time anyway when someone would have said 'we've had enough,' but why not have fun until they do?"

Kudrow played the eccentric Phoebe Buffay on the long-running sitcom. She said that she doesn't like to watch reruns on television but added that when she does, she likes everyone else's performances better than her own. Perry, who played Chandler Bing, seemed to agree and added, "That's why we're not plumbers. That's why we're actors and neurotic and needy."

They agreed that working on Friends was "the greatest job in the world." Both Perry and Kudrow also said they wish they would've suggested keeping the show running when the cast had a meeting back in 2004, where everyone agreed to end the series.

The Friends mini-reunion comes in the wake of Kudrow's announcement that a Friends reunion movie was definitely not happening. News of NBC bringing the show back spread around the Internet in April, but the network denied the rumors firsthand.

Perry told The Hollywood Reporter in June that he wished they never stopped production on Friends, saying, "I'd love to get in a time machine right now and go, 'Let's not stop.'"

Perry did reunite with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox for a skit on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. Aniston told the talk show host that it was nostalgic and said that she missed working with them.
