Courteney Cox is still on a “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” frame of mind.

Still fresh from the much talked-about and watched reunion special on HBO that featured the lead actors of the iconic comedy show, Courteney Cox is still operating on “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” time.

At least that’s how it looked after the actress was seen jamming with a pair of popular singer-songwriters on “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” related content.

Just a day ago, Ed Sheeran posted an Instagram video of him doing “the routine.”

On a field somewhere, the “Shape Of You” singer partnered with Courteney herself on an almost accurate recreation of the hilarious dance routine that Cox, as Monica Geller, originally did with David Schwimmer’s Ross Gellar character.

“The One With The Routine” originally aired as the tenth episode on the sixth season of “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” which aired way back December 16, 1999.

The episode has since been cited by fans all over the world as one of the funniest episodes ever.

The 30-year-old red-headed singer did hold his own against Cox, who at 56 years old, still moved sprightly and still has ‘the routine’ memorized.

Sheeran wrote the hashtag “#obviously better than ross” as a personal comment on his and Cox’s efforts.

Meanwhile, Charlie Puth’s claim as the biggest “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” fan was put to the test by Courteney herself on an episode of “Quizzed” on Billboard’s YouTube channel.

Courteney quizzed Puth on matters regarding “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” that only a true fan would know.

Puth, who during the course of the quiz, sang perfect pitch vocal renditions of even the transition music from the TV show impressed Cox with his musical agility.

But Cox reserved her praises, especially after the second round of questioning, where Puth was seemingly stumped by the craftiest of questions.

The “Marvin Gaye” singer eventually regained his footing and mustered a late rally to convince and impress Cox of his knowledge of “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” related trivia.

Courteney Cox is fit and looked every inch radiant 17 years after the last “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” episode aired on May 6, 2004.

Cox, alongside Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Matt leBlanc popularized the show and turned it into a global phenomenon that continues to gain fans to this day.
