It never aired because of a major historical event.

Who can understand the vagaries of the internet? Not I, but do the patterns of waxing and waning interest *really* matter when there's a deleted scene from Friends to be watched? Didn't think so.

Originally uploaded in 2007, the clip below involves Chandler and Monica being taken for terrorists as they leave for their honeymoon. Writers cut the footage because the episode ("The One Where Rachel Tells Ross") was due to air two weeks after 9/11. 

Today, Mr. and Mrs. Bing's misadventure is getting loads of unexplained traction on social media, which seems to suggest, as the scrolling introduction notes, that the scene really can "now be viewed in the spirit which they were originally intended."
