On Tuesday, Jimmy Kimmel opened his show by promising what he called the “E.R. reunion of your dreams.” Remember, this was that man that got Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow together on stage, in what to this day remains the closest thing we’ve had to a Friends reunion (well, not for long). So, the prospect of seeing George Clooney, who was the night’s lead guest, joined on stage by Noah Wyle, Julianna Margulies, and Anthony Edwards seemed at least somewhat plausible.
But alas, it was not to be. However, that doesn’t necessarily make Kimmel a liar. After all, he did promise a reunion of our dreams, and only in our dreams could we concoct a scenario in which Clooney’s Dr. Ross is assisted by none other than Hugh Laurie’s Dr. House, in an attempt to save the late night host’s life. And only in our dreams would that include one of the most debonair movie stars ever, rapping Sugarhill Gang’s hip-hop classic “Rapper’s Delight” on national television.
But, it happened, and if this indeed was a dream, then we don’t ever want to wake up. Watch above.
