"Friends" star Courteney Cox celebrated Thanksgiving by recreating Monica Geller's iconic turkey dance from the hit sitcom.

"Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I hope you're having a great day," the 56-year-old actress said in a video posted on Instagram on Thursday.

"I'm feeling so thankful, and also, if I get one more goddamn GIF with that turkey on my head dancing like a f—ing fool, I'm just gonna snap," she said, including the aforementioned "Friends" GIF in her post.

"So anyway, since I'm the symbol of Thanksgiving, here you go. Hope it makes you happy," Cox said as the video cut to her shimmying with a raw turkey on top of her own head. 

Similar to the "Friends" episode, Cox wore a green shirt and the turkey wore a pair of sunglasses.

Cox's friends and followers couldn't get enough of her video. 

Costar Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) commented: "You DID THAT!!"

Reese Witherspoon, who played Jennifer Aniston's on-screen sister on "Friends," wrote: "Love you sister! ❤️."

Fans of the hit NBC show will recall that the popular episode took place during a season five episode titled "The One With the Thanksgiving Flashbacks," in which the friends recalled their worst Thanksgiving experiences. 

After Chandler (Matthew Perry) learned that Monica accidentally severed his toes years ago in retaliation for him calling her fat, she went to apologize to him.

To cheer him up, Monica stopped by his apartment wearing the turkey and began dancing, which led Chandler to laugh and tell her he loved her for the first time.
