Sick of quarantine? We've got just the remedy!

Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara (aka Juni and Carmen) from Spy Kids just reunited virtually and it's the most precious thing ever.

If you're bored, here's some good news: more and more former casts have been reuniting virtually.

One of the first to do so was The Nanny, the popular '90s sitcom that followed the hilarious antics of saleswomen-turned-nanny, Fran Fine.

Almost the entire cast got together on YouTube to do a virtual table read of the show's pilot episode.

This was done to help spread some positivity during this difficult time.

Fran Drescher, the show's star and co-creator, told Variety:

"Laughter is the best medicine! So, in these challenging times, Petah and I thought, wouldn't it be great if we pulled together the original cast of The Nanny for a virtual read of the pilot?"

Other sitcoms soon followed suit.

The cast of Fraiser got together on Skype to reminisce about their time on the show and to raise money for The Actors Fund.

Mandy Moore even took fans on a walk down memory lane.

While on Instagram Live with her husband, she performed 'Only Hope', the hit track from the 2002 tearjerker film, A Walk to Remember.

“Remember how we used to have the harness on for hours and we’d be like, ‘Can someone take it off?’ and then no one ever came?” Sabara recalled, causing his former co-star to laugh.

BTW, this was the first time that Alexa and Meghan met!

So, clearly, Meghan had to get the "sisterly" stamp of approval.

"You're so pretty," Meghan told Alexa. Aww!

The conversation soon moved on to props from the film. Turns out that both Daryl and Alexa kept some!

Meghan's parents even got one of the Juni's costume's framed for him. So adorable!

Since Alexa has two kids with her husband, Carlos, she even revealed that her kids haven't watched Spy Kids yet.
