Internet goes crazy for unseen Friends clip

Friends is one of those TV shows that, no matter how many times you’ve seen an episode, you’ll always spot something you missed before.

Despite it being over 20-years-old the love of Friends shows no sign of dying down anytime soon – so you can imagine our glee when a preciously unaired clip went viral this week.

The deleted scene shows Monica and Chandler arriving at the airport to go on their honeymoon.

As they’re going through security, Chandler spots a sign that reads: ‘Federal law prohibits any jokes regarding aircraft hijacking or bombing’.

Of course, Chandler is unable to stop himself from making a joke. He tells the security officer: “You don’t have to worry about me, ma’am. I take my bombs very seriously.”

Unsurprisingly he and Monica are then dragged away for questioning, where she becomes upset when they mess up her organised suitcase.

It’s classic friends humour and, if the circumstances had been different, it would’ve slotted into the show well.

But producers decided to pull the scenes because the episode, The One Where Rachel Tells Ross, was set to air two-weeks after the devastating 9/11 bombings.

The clip, which was originally uploaded four years ago, begins with a message explaining the situation, and ends with: ‘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’.
