It's been over a decade since the last episode of Friends was aired on TV in 2004 and we're willing to bet you've watched at least every episode at least 20 million times. However, there's one scene you've almost definitely never seen.

In the third episode of the eighth season, “The One Where Rachel Tells Ross,” an entire scene had to be deleted. The scene in question featured Monica and Chandler as they embarked on their honeymoon and comprised entirely of classic Chandler style foot-in-mouth jokes during an airport security check. In cringeworthy timing, the episode was due to air two weeks after the 9/11 attacks.


As the newlywed'd Mr. and Mrs. Bing excitedly make their way through an airport, Chandler makes a crack about a bomb and the pair are dragged off for questioning by police.

After reading a sign that said, "ATTENTION. Federal Law Prohibits Any Joking Regarding Aircraft Highjacking or Bombing," Chandler retorts, "You don't have to worry about me, ma'am, I take my bombs very seriously." Seconds later security swoop in.

Following 9/11, the scene was immediately pulled by producers as it was deemed insensitive and disrespectful. However, they have since released the footage in hope that it 'can now be viewed in the spirit which they were originally intended.'

Uploaded to YouTube in 2007, it has only just now gone viral.

Good timing, guys.
