Cox wrote in a now viral Instagram post:
“The one where the six of us went to Vegas and no one knew we were F.R.I.E.N.D.S. yet.”
Her adorable photo shows the cast of Friends (before it first aired in 1994) on a private jet to Las Vegas. According to a 2013 interview, director James Burrows flew the cast to Sin City to celebrate after filming the Friends pilot.
Burrows later told the cast “this is your last shot at anonymity,” while eating at Caesar’s Palace.
The cast’s 1994 getaway to Vegas sounds amazing!
I took them to Vegas. We ate at Caesar’s Palace in Spago. I had me and six of them and I said — I don’t know why I said this — I said, ‘This is your last shot at anonymity. Once the show comes on the air, you guys will never be able to go anywhere without being hounded.’ I knew the show had a chance to really take off.
Friends star Lisa Kudrow commented on Courteney’s post.
Other 90’s goddesses like Reese Witherspoon and Megan Mullally also chimed in.
People on social media reacted to Courteney’s epic ‘Throwback Thursday’ post.

But Friends superfans already knew all about the 1994 Las Vegas trip.
Can you imagine being an adult in 2019 who is JUST NOW learning about the trip the Friends cast took to Vegas before the show started airing? Like, I know nothing about world history, but I at least know that.

Courteney’s Instagram features plenty more Friends nostalgia though, including weird memes.
Her Instagram profile picture is currently ‘Fat Monica.’ 🤣
Idk if I’m late on this, but I’m living for Courtney Cox using Fat Monica as her IG pic 😂 pic.twitter.com/CDLJ8iAKL5

But I’ve discovered something amazing on Courteney’s Instagram…
LOOK AT THESE PUPS! 😍
Courteney Cox and husband Johnny McDaid are two lucky dog parents.
But we all hit the jackpot when the cast of Friends boarded that private jet to Las Vegas.
