- We didn't do it that night. - We didn't do the huddle.
We didn't do it?
That's the one time we didn't do it.
- Why didn't we do it? - I don't know.
That's right, 'cause we were sort of like,
"You know what? We're taking too long.
The audience has been waiting. Let's just go."
I think that's why we didn't do it.
- Really? - Well, it was sort of early on.
- It wasn't like -- - It was very early on.
And then after that,
we were like, "Do we need to do the huddle?"
-他说"需要啊" -是的 需要
- And he'd say, "Yeah." - Yeah, we do.
"'Cause I don't want anything else falling off me."
- Yeah. - We do need to do the huddle.
After that, we always did it.
Let's go see where we did the huddle.
Right here. Let's go.
Straight down to this purple door.
We did the huddle right here.
- Yeah. - Right around here.

Come on, let's do a huddle. Come on.
Wait. You mean we...
So the atmosphere on tape night was always crackling.
There was a lot of energy.
It was exciting. You're putting on a show.
It was a fun night,
but it was a really hard working night for us
and we would listen to the audience.
And if a joke didn't land, even if we loved that joke,
they were telling us it's not good enough.
So we would put our heads together and try to beat it.
It's a buffet. It's in trouble.
It's in trouble, like I'm gonna go eat it all.
How about "Here's where I win all my money back"?
I like that. Great.
Kevin, there's a lot of changes coming.
- Good shit. - You guys ready?
Where is the waitress? I'm starving.
It's a buffet, man.
Here's where I win all my money back.
I really enjoyed the energy of the audience, though.
- I mean, the live audience. - Yeah.
- I mean... - I did, too.
It's like doing a one-act play every week with all of us.
I found myself, like,
when they would laugh at something,
I would think to myself, "Oh, if you think that's funny,
when till you get a load of this next line."
They would challenge me to try even --
I felt this rewarding feeling.
- Or not. - I'm coming over here.
- Or a flat nothing. - I feel left out over there.
At least to me,
I felt like I was gonna die if they didn't laugh.
And it's not healthy for sure.
But I would sometimes say a line,
and they wouldn't laugh, and I would sweat
and -- and just, like, go into convulsions.
If I didn't get the laugh I was supposed to get,
- I would freak out. - It would take you down.
- You didn't tell us that. - No?
No, I don't remember you ever saying that.
Yeah, I felt like that every single night.
One of the times we listened to the audience the most
was when we were shooting in London
and Monica and Chandler are in bed together.
I'm getting married today!
I'm getting married!
Do you think he knew I was here?
The audience went insane.
We were just standing there going "This is insane."
We just let them go.
Okay, your turn.
No, I'm kidding.
- Cut! - He told me to say it.
I think that moment was the beginning
of how we rethought Monica and Chandler,
'cause the original plan was
they would sleep together in London,
it was a brief thing,
and we'd have some fun with it afterward
as they're both like, "Oh, my God, what did we do?"
But the way the audience reacted,
we realized there's more to this
and we need to pay attention.
Well, I've never done that with you before.
That was the end of the season,
so we had time to really ruminate and think about it,
but it was such a powerful moment
that we knew we had to explore it more.
We expanded it from just a "One night in London" thing
to "This could be a thing" thing.
I'm still on London time. Does that count?
- That counts. - Good.
We still, at that point,
didn't quite realize how far it would go.
We still thought maybe it'd be fun with them doing it in secret
and hiding it, which did give us a lot of funny stuff.
It's me. Coming in.
I've had a very long, hard day.
I love the episode where they've just returned home
from London and Monica and Chandler
are trying to keep it a secret that they've been hooking up.

So thanks for having me over.
The cast, they know how powerful
just, like, a funny visual set piece will be,
and it's funnier than anything they could have ever said.
So the really great thing about "Friends"
is they're so good with farce.
What the hell was that?
So when there's a secret like Monica and Chandler are dating,
it's so fun because we the audience knows,
but none of the rest of the cast knows.
Okay, this is from "The One Where Everyone Finds Out."
Ugly naked guy's apartment.
Phoebe and Rachel have tagged along with Ross.
Although it's pretty empty, it's a great place.
Oh, my God.
I love this apartment. Isn't it perfect?
I can't believe I never realized how -- how great it is.
