Matthew Perry revealed his favorite scene from FRIENDS

In this episode, Chandler Bing, Perry’s character, finds himself stuck in an ATM vestibule with Victoria’s Secret model Jill Goodacre during a city-wide power outage. In his 2004 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Perry shared “The interesting thing about that episode was I didn’t speak much; it was mostly in voiceover, we prerecorded what I said, and I had to react.” Perry humorously noted “Let’s face it: Jill Goodacre is hot, so it wasn’t that difficult, I [remember] spitting my gum out, and it stuck to the wall. It was my choice to just stay frozen in fear and embarrassment. … What was great about that night was that I was also able to watch the other three-quarters of the show, which was these five great actors doing ensemble work that was amazing. This was the first time I realized, ‘Gee, this is really clicking.’”

Perry’s connection with the Friends cast extended beyond the show’s finale. In 2021, he reunited with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer for an HBO Max special. Their bond was evident as they spent quality time off-screen, attending each other’s premieres and birthday dinners. Perry, 54, passed away on Oct. 28, and his Friends’ costars attended his funeral on Nov. 3.
