Later in the speech, Lisa Kudrow also speaks about how people’s twenties are uncertain times, when they are still trying to figure out their path for the rest of their lives and how she coped with her twenties. She said, “When one door closes, another door always opens. It really does. That’s what I would tell myself to keep those moments of doubts, only moments. And it worked, I kept going. Then it all changed. After many auditions, I was the second person cast in the pilot called ‘Friends Like Us,’ which would later be changed to ‘Friends.’”

Lisa concluded her speech with how that firing from Frasier, which seemed so harsh, worked out for the best for her.
