Despite ending back in 2004, people still can’t stop talking about Friends.

And with the sitcom’s 25th anniversary fast approaching, the conversation has really stepped up.

Because of this, a hilarious blooper from the show’s 100th episode has just resurfaced online.

Posted on Twitter the clip quickly went viral, with many people realising they’d never actually seen it before – and others sharing the absolutely brilliant story behind the whole thing.

The scene features all six of the Friends, in hospital as Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) prepares to give birth to her brother’s triplets.

Friends ran for 10 years with over 200 episodes of distasteful jokes

 

Ross (David Schwimmer) attempts to calm his heavily pregnant pal down, saying: “Pheebs it’s gonna be okay.”

To which she replies: “Yeah easy for you to say, I don’t see three kids coming out of your d*** ditch.”

In the actual episode, Phoebe uses the word “vagina”, but at the time the of filming, the network wasn’t keen on this being said on TV.

So during filming, Marta Kauffman and David Crane were tasked with coming up with another word to describe a woman’s genitals – and the cast decided to help out.

In an interview from 1998, Kudrow revealed how the bizarre blooper came to be.

She said: “We weren’t allowed to say, I think ‘vagina’.

“Marta came over and said: ‘We are trying to figure out another word because the network would prefer that we don’t say vagina, so that’s what we’re doing over here, if you guys have any ideas let us know’.

“So everyone’s trying to throw out like ‘hoohoo’ or ‘hehe’ and LeBlanc says ‘I’ve called it a d*** ditch before’.

“And we all laughed so hard and we told Marta and she laughed so hard but said ‘Obviously we can’t say that’.”

But Matthew Perry wasn’t ready to let the term go – so he dared Kudrow $200 to say it to the audience during filming.

Then suddenly the rest of the cast added $200 each to the bet.

And of course from the clip we can see that Kudrow went through with it and won the money.

She recalls thinking at the time: “Like what are they gonna do? Fire me? So I was like, alright, it will be a moment that no one will forget.”

She adds that she knew everyone in the audience on set was over 16 so she didn’t feel too bad about using foul language.

Clearly the audience didn’t mind, as they, along with Matthew, David, Matt, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox burst out laughing the second the words left her mouth.

And now we can all laugh along with them over and over thanks to social media.
