Big Friends fan? Watched the episodes 200 times (or more)? Yep, us too. So you’ll want to watch the deleted scene that even hardcore Friends fans (like us and you) haven’t seen.
The scene, originally intended to air during the episode The One Where Rachel Tells Ross (you know, where condoms are only 97% effective, “well they should put it on the box in huge black letters!”) has been doing the rounds on the internet.
The three-minute clip, scheduled to go live shortly after 9/11, was sensitively removed as the storyline involved airport security and talk of the B-word as a joke.
Fans (yes, you) of the show will know that this scene was instead replaced with the newly married Bings’ moaning that they don’t get honeymoon upgrades on their trip.
*Spoiler alert* The video opens with the message from the makers: “As part of the history of the show, we hope that the scenes can now be viewed in the spirit which they were originally intended.”
The scene goes on to show Monica and Chandler arriving at the airport for their honeymoon, Chandler sees a sign warning that people who joke about bombs will be taken into custody.
Chandler, being the Chandler we know and love, makes a joke and is detained and questioned – where he makes more jokes, including one about his Speedos.
And, just as they are free to go, Monica has a fight with Joey on the phone about the gas leak in their apartment and, after yelling, “no I want you to stand there and wait for the whole place to blow up!” and is dragged back in for more questioning.
You can see why they cut the scene, but don’t take our word for it, just watch…
