Their different approach mirrored how people often approach new romantic relationships, "which are often reactions to the last relationship you had," he says."If someone's too high drama, you look for someone stable.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.For Vulture's weeklong celebration of 1998, former Friends exec producer Scott Silveri, who co-wrote the episode with future wife Shana Goldberg-Meehan (and, as with most sitcoms, lots of input from the rest of the show's writing staff) explains the genesis of the relationship, the reservations that nearly stopped it from happening, and why he thinks it added years to the show's life.It felt real." As they got together in summer of 1997 to map out story lines for the upcoming season four, the writers decided that bringing Monica and Chandler together would be, according to Silveri, "a great goal for the end of the season." They just needed to figure out how.The writers knew they couldn't "do the exact same thing" as Ross and Rachel, Silveri explains.
The hookup happened suddenly in the last half of the show, with zero preamble; after Ross excitedly bursts into Chandler’s hotel room then leaves, Monica pops out from under the covers and asks, “Do you think he knew I was here? (A season-seven episode, “The One With the Truth About London,” revealed more details.) "The goal from the get-go was to treat Monica and Chandler's hookup as a surprise, a jolt in the second half of the hour-long episode to add some energy and fun," Silveri says. Says Silveri, “[We were] basically shooting for the spot between, 'This stinks, that never would have happened!But then, in the second half of the season’s hour-long finale – the one with Ross's ill-fated London wedding weekend with Emily – another duo surprisingly hooked up, much to the glee of audience members: Monica and Chandler.Their relationship would evolve as the complete opposite of Ross and Rachel's: long-kept secret from the other roommates, and healthy and strong until the series ended with them married, parents of adopted twins."The only real debate was around just how we'd get Monica and Chandler there that morning, how many crumbs to drop to lead the audience and the characters to the moment, all in hopes that the fact that they ended up in bed that morning wouldn't feel unmotivated and false.” In earlier scenes at the rehearsal dinner, Chandler had tried to talk a drunk Monica out of her funk over having no boyfriend, and a drunk party guest mistaking her for Ross’ mother. '; and, 'This stinks, I saw that coming.' More of a delighted, 'That is surprising but also very satisfying and organic. '" Silveri and the other producers got a sense of how viewers would react to their storytelling decisions months before the episode aired on NBC.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.
