Maggie Wheeler, best known for portraying Janice on the beloved sitcom Friends, has some playful thoughts on part of the show's ending.

In a Nov. 23 video posted to the TikTok account for the performer Jax, as well as Wheeler's Instagram account, the Parent Trap actress, 60, made a surprise cameo during a musical number that the New Jersey-based musician wrote from Janice's perspective.

"So no one talks about the one mistake on Friends," the singer-songwriter begins over a piano rendition of the long-running sitcom's theme song.

"The best couple on the show never made it to the end," she continues. "Chandler [Bing] and Monica [Geller] went together well, but I think Chandler should have ended up with someone else."

Wheeler then pops into the frame (after providing some clapping assistance earlier in the tune).

"Oh my GAWD," she says in her signature Janice voice, joining in on the reimagined theme song. "Chandler, I'll wait for you when you and Monica get divorced," Wheeler sings. "I will wait for you, you know you always loved me more. You love me, Chandler Bing!"

During a 2016 interview on ITV's This Morning, Wheeler opened up about how she came up with her Friends character's telltale cackle, explaining that Janice's obnoxious laugh was used as a cover-up when Matthew Perry would make her break character on set.

"So the laugh happened organically in the first rehearsal, because I needed to find a way to laugh, because Matthew Perry is so funny," she said. "And working with him, I knew right away, I thought, 'This guy's gonna make me laugh on set, I've gotta be prepared. What am I going to do?' So I created Janice's laugh just as a safety measure for when Matthew made me laugh."

The actress, who has worked on a variety of animated productions like Archer, The Addams Family, Silver Hawks and more, also said then that she had no idea that Janice would become a fan-favorite character on the show over its 10 seasons.

"It was always a surprise that she continued to have a life on the show," she said. "I was always so thrilled every time the writers decided to bring me back," she said. "It started out as a one-shot deal – come in, do one episode — and out of that came 10 years of this extraordinary, joyful experience."
