Anyone else remember this episode of Friends? It’s after Monica and Chandler are together, and Monica gets sent home from work because she’s sick. And there’s this great little conversation:
Monica: (Sick, but trying to act sexy) Okay, I’ll rest. But ya know, if I’m going to bed, then you’re coming with me.
Chandler: That would be impossible to resist if you weren’t all drippy here.
Monica: Are you saying that you don’t wanna get with this?
Chandler: Yeah, I don’t think you should say that even when you’re healthy

I kept having this scene go through my head today…because we’ve got this sequence in the play where a man and woman are obviously flirting on stage. The actor, however, is in the middle of some creeping sick. He usually has a gorgeous, resonant voice but on this occasion he’s reminding me of Monica…trying to sound sexy and failing miserably.
It must be a little hard to be all sexy when someone keeps giggling.
