Actress Lisa Cash who also acted in the show, shared how Perry's character Chandler Bing was supposed to cheat on Courteney Cox's character Monica Geller but the whole idea was dropped. Lisa appeared in the 1999 episode from season 5, "The One in Vegas: Part 1".

According to the report, the original scene involved Monica getting involved in a heated argument with Chandler. Lisa's character would have then brought room service to Chandler's room in a Las Vegas hotel leading to Chandler and her character would have got along after his fight with Monica. The script writers wanted Chandler to then have an affair with Lisa and cheat on Monica.

Although Perry rehearsed the scene, he thought that such a script would upset the fans. Perry then convinced the show's writers to drop the idea. After the script got axed, Lisa went on to act as flight attendant in Ross and Rachel's scene in the episode.

The report highlights that had the scene taken place, it might have given an advantage to Lisa in her career. But years down the line, Lisa supports the decision.
