AUSTIN, Texas — Friends fans deserve a belated pat on the back for helping to make what would become one of the show's main couples a reality. Speaking at the ATX Television Festival on Friday at a panel about series finales, co-creator Marta Kaufman revealed that Monica and Chandler's friendship-turned-romance was not always part of the greater Friends plan. Exec producer Scott Silveri had previously admitted that the London episode was meant to be a trial of sorts for the relationship, but Kauffman says the plot underwent major retooling after fans' reaction was heard. But that wasn't a person — it was an entire, immediate expression of joy.
