Lisa Kudrow Recalls Run-In Where Jerry Seinfeld Told Her ‘You’re Welcome’ for ‘Friends’ ‘ Success

According to Kudrow, she once found herself at the same event with the Seinfeld star, who teased Kudrow about how his show was boosting Friends’ profile.

“I remember going to some party and Jerry Seinfeld was there, and I said, ‘Hi,’ and he said, ‘You’re welcome,’ the actress told The Daily Beast. “I said, ‘Why, thank you … what?'”

According to Kudrow, Seinfeld then told her, “You’re on after us in the summer, and you’re welcome.”

As it happened, in Friends’ first season on air it followed the Helen Hunt/Paul Reiser sitcom Mad About You. But the series really “exploded,” according to Kudrow, during the summer of 1995 after NBC placed the show’s season 1 reruns after re-airings of Seinfeld, which was a certified hit in its sixth season.
