Did rachel and chandler hook up

Print Share This story originally ran on Nov. Although pairing off sitcom characters is always a risky venture, especially when a show already has one successful couple, Monica and Chandler quickly became a fan-favorite romance, with viewers loving the chemistry between Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry. The idea had been "kicking around" since before Silveri and Goldberg-Meehan joined the show in season three, he remembers, with his predecessors taking note of the chemistry between the two characters as early as the season-two episode "The One Where Ross Finds Out.

It became clear it was too early to explore something like that. Plus, the logic of another coupling was starting to grow stronger, at least in the eyes of some of the writers. Their different approach mirrored how people often approach new romantic relationships, "which are often reactions to the last relationship you had," he says. And so with Monica and Chandler, we decided to roll out in a way that was a reaction to the last big relationship [the show] had.

And then in the third season, with the breakup, it affected the six of them as much of the two of them. Yes, some Friends fans probably saw hints of a relationship coming for a while; the first episode of season four had the twosome cutely bonding over a jellyfish sting. It might not stink! With the episode shooting in London where the show was also a hit instead of Burbank, producers wanted to give as many locals the chance to see a taping as possible.

So rather than following the standard practice of filming multiple takes of scenes, producers instead shot the episode all the way through, like a play, for three different studio audiences. And when Monica popped up from beneath the sheets [after their hookup], there was just this explosion from the audience.

They were just blown away by it. It was so intense, for the second or third takes, instead of watching the monitors, I just turned around and watched the audience. In fact, Silveri admits the London hookup was something of a trial balloon, designed to see how viewers reacted to the idea, and if Perry and Cox had the sort of sexual chemistry that producers thought they might.

And then they had such good chemistry, the producers and the writers at the time decided to explore it a little more. It was sound producing on their part. The writers knew Perry and Cox, along with the other four series regulars, were protective of their alter egos, particularly when it came to romantic entanglements within the group. The fallout came in the following year, when it became a relationship. They were acutely sensitive to how it played out.

Nobody knew about it. We as writers were almost as protective of it as those characters were. So we just kept taking baby steps forward and feeling our way through.

Audiences embraced the two as a couple, and Perry and Cox ultimately accepted the idea as well. This was no small feat: Most shows have trouble managing one big couple see: New Girl , let alone two.

The full series is available on DVD or streaming on iTunes.
