"Friends" may be off the air for over a decade, but fans sure are not going to let it rot in the past. While repeated requests, online petitions and even threats for a reunion are falling on deaf ears, fans are looking back at old clips and reassuring themselves that "Friends" still exist.
The latest "Friends" video to go viral is from a deleted scene. The video shows Chandler Bing and Monica Gellar on their honeymoon. However, they get in trouble with the security personnel at the airport, thanks to Chandler's big, sarcastic mouth. Since the episode, which featured the scene, was scheduled to air two weeks after the 9/11 attacks, show-runners deemed it would be insensitive to air it.
Meanwhile, Matthew Perry, who brought to life the witty and sharp Chandler on the long-running sitcom, is turning 46 on Wednesday, 19 August. And what better way to celebrate it than reminiscing some of his best dialogues from the show. Because although he has gone on to star in other funny shows like "Go On", "Mr Sunshine" and "The Odd Couple", "Friends" still remains the highlight of his career.
