LISA KUDROW: Courteney Cox was the best known of all of us, and she had done a guest star on Seinfeld. She said, “Listen, I just did a Seinfeld, and they all help each other. They say, ‘Try this,’ and ‘This would be funny.’ ” And she said, “You guys, feel free to tell me. If I could do anything funnier, I want to do it.”
There’s a code with actors. Actors don’t give each other notes under any circumstances. So she was giving us permission to give her notes, and we all agreed that that would be great. Why not? And she also said, “Listen, you know, we all need to make this thing great.” She just set the stage with: “I know I’m the one who’s been on TV, but this is all of us.” She was the one who set that tone and made it a real group that way. And I thought that was a real turning point.
