And though the couple may be relationship goals off-screen, there’s a bit of drama for the pair in the TV world.

onnie (Allison Janney) encourages Christy to pursue Nick, who is also the nephew of Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy), despite the fact that he’s been declared off-limits.

This isn’t the first time Faris, 40, and Pratt, 37, have worked together.

Having married in 2009, the couple appeared together in What’s Your Number? and Take Me Home Tonight in 2011, followed by Movie 43 in 2013. This is the first time Pratt has appeared on Faris’ comedy since its debut in 2013.

Pratt’s appearance on Mom will air Thursday, Jan. 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
