The long lost storyline from FRIENDS belongs in episode 3 of season 8, “The One Where Rachel Tells”. The episode originally aired October 11, 2001 – just one month after 9/11.

In the initial script, Monica and Chandler set off for their honeymoon but didn’t get past airport security when Chandler jokes about a bomb joke sign. This Monica-Chandler honeymoon storyline was replaced with ‘the couple who beat them to the punch’ storyline because the writers and producers felt it was too soon after 9/11 for even Chandler to land those jokes.

Check out the deleted scenes from Monica and Chandler’s original honeymoon story!

Friends Airport Security (deleted scene)

This scene was deleted from episode 8.02 (The One Where Rachel Tells). Since the epsode was to be aired soon after 9/11/2001 the scene had to be replaced with the scene where Monica was jealous of another newlywed pair.
