Only Dolly Parton could go on a national talk show and talk about a threesome involving Jennifer Aniston.

Yes, that happened.

Parton, 72, blew up "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night as she discussed writing the music for Aniston's Netflix film "Dumplin' "(streaming Friday) and how excited her husband of 52 years, Carl Thomas Dean, was about the concept.

“I love her to death,” Parton said of Aniston, 49, who stars in and produced the movie. “My husband is crazy about her, and he was more excited that I was going to do a movie with her than he was that I got the chance to write all this music. I think he fantasizes, like, a threesome.”

Then Parton made a clever quip (seen in the NSFW clip below) about her husband being too old for the situation, causing Fallon to collapse in surprised laughter.

Aniston, too, was pretty stunned by Parton's comments.

“My mouth just dropped,” Aniston tells USA TODAY. “And then I laughed my (butt) off. That’s Dolly. “

Fully composed by Tuesday, Aniston says the comments were just Dolly being her classic, outrageous self, which is why the colorful country music legend looms so large in "Dumplin'," the story of a plus-size teenager (Danielle Macdonald) who enters a pageant organized by her former beauty queen mother (Aniston).

Here's the hilarious NSFW video clip:

“It was hilarious, I think it’s flattering. And that’s Dolly's sense of humor,” says Aniston. “No one in the world can get away with saying anything like that about their partner on live television, except Dolly. I mean, that is a quote."

While Aniston and Parton have laughed about the line together ("It's been discussed all day, shall we say"), they haven’t exactly set aside time on Google Calendar for any nocturnal activities.

“That was just talk-show fodder,” says Aniston.

What is real is the friendship between Aniston and Parton.

Besides an epic seven-hour meal shared at Aniston’s house, the two are pen pals. Dolly doesn’t text. She writes letters.

“They’re beautiful, all on stationary with this Dolly (letterhead). She’s so old-fashioned,” says Aniston. “I give her a phone call back after she writes. I like talking to her on the phone.”
