The deleted scene was cut from the episode that sees Chandler and Monica jet off on their honeymoon
You guys! It turns out that there’s a scene from Friends that we never even knew existed. As Janice would say, Oh… My… GOD!
The previously unseen clip has surfaced online, and the internet couldn’t BE more excited about it, with the video quickly going viral. Check it out below!
The deleted clip was set to be part of episode The One Where Rachel Tells Ross, where newlyweds Chandler and Monica head off on their honeymoon.
The scene, which sees Chandler making a joke about a bomb whilst passing through airport security, was deleted from the episode by Friends bosses as it was due to air in October 2001 – just after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in America.
‘The sign says, ‘no jokes about bombs,’ but shouldn’t the sign really say ‘no bombs’?’ Chandler jokes in the four-minute clip. ‘I mean isn’t that the guy we really have to worry about here? The guy with the bombs? Not the guy who jokes about his bombs. Not that I have bombs, but if I did I probably wouldn’t joke about them. I’d probably want to keep that rather quiet.’
The bigwigs behind the show decided to cut the scene as they felt it would be too insensitive to include it so soon after the attacks.
But now the clip has resurfaced and we’re doing a little Chandler dance about having some fresh Friends fodder to geek-out over.
The clip comes hot on the heels of the news that FriendsFest – yes, a festival ALL about Friends! – is coming to London next month.
For five days only, from Wednesday 16th – Sunday 20th September, Comedy Central UK will be re-building everyone’s fave New York apartment in Brick Lane and not only will there be a full-on set of Monica’s apartment for you to take as many selfies until your heart’s content, but there’s also LOADS of other fun extras for fans.
There’ll be original props and memorabilia for you to snap away at, you can get a classic ‘Rachel’ blow-dry at the salon, pose in front of the infamous fountain, and of course, have a cup of coffee at Central Perk.
