Corden opened by asking if the 72-year-old country legend had met Aniston’s German Shepard, Dolly, who was named after her. Aniston said the event occurred, adding, “There was like a blonde, fantastic affair.”
Although Parton initially didn’t know how to react to the news that a dog had been named after her, she got used to the idea. At the very least, it made Parton’s visit to Aniston’s house memorable.
“It kind of got a little embarrassing because there were other people and she’d be saying like, ‘Dolly, don’t pee on the rug!’” Parton joked.
Corden later had Parton play a game of “Dolly Would or Dolly Wouldn’t” (a reference to Parton’s Tennessee theme park, Dollywood). “Dolly would, or Dolly wouldn’t you play the Benny Hill theme tune on a kazoo?” Corden asked.
“Oh, Dolly would!” she confirmed, as Corden passed her a saxophone-shaped kazoo to try it out.
Corden then pulled out pictures of Aniston’s male Friends costars: Joey, Ross and Chandler.
“One of these, you have to marry, settle down for a lifetime, children, dog, family, estate, car, all of those things,” Corden said. “One of them, you have a wild night of passionate sex. But then the other one, you have to spend the rest of your life on a cruise ship sharing a room every day, but you don’t sleep with them.”
Parton decided she would marry Joey and take Ross to Dollywood.
“So you’re going to go on a cruise with Ross — and then the hot sex with Chandler?” pressed Corden. “Why not? He would forget me,” Parton said.
Finally, Parton was dared to play a washboard with her fingernails. She agreed, and sang her song “9 to 5” while scratching her orange acrylics on the instrument.
