Joey and Rachel Friends Reunion GIFs 2016

People Are Freaking Out About These Joey Tribbiani and Rachel Green GIFs

The cast of Friends — minus Matthew Perry — recently reunited for an NBC special, and the news has had a lot of fans freaking out. We first got a glimpse of the meetup from Kaley Cuoco, who shared a photo of her and her The Big Bang Theory castmates posing with Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow at the taping of the upcoming James Burrows tribute, and a video preview of the Friends cast doing an interview with Andy Cohen also hit the Internet this week. It wasn't long before fans noticed similarities between a snippet of the clip and a scene from a 2001 episode in which Joey brings Rachel as his date to the Soapie Awards.

The cute throwback GIF made the rounds on Tumblr with a reference to "gal pal Rachel Green" — Jennifer Aniston's character hilariously gives herself the moniker while Joey is being interviewed by Soap Opera Digest in the 2002 episode "The One With Joey's Interview." See the moments below now, then look back on all the times you wish you were a part of the Friends crew.
