She may not have appeared in the scene herself when "Friends" first aired, but Courteney Cox got a real-life re-do of a classic moment from the sitcom while moving furniture at her home over the weekend.

In a video shared on her Instagram page, Cox, who played Monica Geller on the hit series, channeled her onscreen brother, Ross (David Schwimmer), by helpfully -- or perhaps not so helpfully -- shouting "Pivot!" to a group of guys relocating a desk to a different room in her house.



Devoted "Friends" fans should immediately get the reference, which aired during the episode "The One With the Cop," a season five installment that just celebrated its 20th anniversary last month. (We're going to pause for a moment to feel old as hell.) In the scene, an increasingly frustrated Ross repeatedly shouts "Pivot!" at his pals Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) while the trio try -- and fail -- to carry a couch upstairs.

Watch the original scene here (the action starts around the 1:00 mark):



Cox had much better luck than Ross, since her movers were able to successfully get her piece of furniture to its destination (and without having to cut it in half, either). We just wish one of her helpers had retorted with Chandler's "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!" Next time, Courteney.
