Watch the unaired ‘Friends’ scene pulled in the wake of 9/11

Footage from an old episode that aired two weeks after the September 11 attacks has resurfaced

By Keren Sim
A previously unaired scene from an old Friends episode has resurfaced online, and it includes an airport bomb joke that would have screened two weeks after the September 11 terrorist attacks.
In the clip, Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Monica (Courteney Cox) are lining up to go through airport security before jetting off for their honeymoon, when Chandler makes a joke about a bomb. A security guard quickly pulls him away, and he's later seen being questioned along with Monica by officials.
The quick clip was pulled from the episode so audiences never got to see it – but it made its way online in 2007, and has started to go viral again over the past couple of days.
“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,” producers said in an introduction to the clip.
The beloved show, which focused on a group of six friends in New York City, ran for 10 seasons and aired its final episode in 2004.
