No matter how many times you watch Friends you usually notice something you missed in the first hundred views.
But in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Maggie Wheeler – the actor who played Janice – pointed out a moment that the vast majority of fans probably overlooked.
As you can imagine, Maggie had some great insights into the legendary sitcom and she has highlighted one of the many moments where the cast really struggled to keep it together, reports The Independent.
In the episode The One With The Giant Poking Device, Chandler finds out Janice has been seeing her ex-husband behind his back.
Chandler discovers that I’ve been fooling around with my ex-husband and I’m breathing into a paper bag.Advertisement
I’m hyperventilating and we had rehearsed it many times, and every time he would just grab the bag gently and the air would just exit it.
But when they came to film the scene in front of the live audience, it didn’t go quite according to plan.
The adrenaline was pumping and we were in the middle of the scene and he was like ‘do you love him?’ – yes – ‘do you love me?’ – yes – and he just grabbed the bag with more force than he had in any rehearsal and it popped.
I was able to hide my face in the bag, but you can see if you look at it, he almost cracks up.
To be fair it’s just a flicker of a smirk that passes across his face, but you can definitely see the moment. Fair play to them for keeping it together though!
