Matthew Perry has revealed that he killed at least one story line on “Friends.”

On Thursday’s episode of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Perry played one of the show’s recurring games, “Plead the Fifth.” In it, Cohen asks his guests three questions and allows them to pass on only one.

Perry, who’s promoting the New York City run of his play, “The End of Longing,” had already used his one pass on the first question – Cohen asked him to play “Marry, Shag, Kill” using his female “Friends” costars.

The second question: whether Perry knew what costar David Schwimmer meant by his offhand comment during the televised reunion last year, which Perry couldn’t attend, that some “Friends” costars had had sex.

“I don’t know who he was referring to,” Perry said. “No, I think there was no sex between any of them, or I was really missing something.”

Cohen’s third and final question was whether there was a “Friends” story line that either “jumped the shark” or that Perry wouldn’t allow.

“There was a story line on ‘Friends’ where Chandler went to a male strip joint because he really liked the sandwiches,” Perry said. “And I called up, and I said, ‘Let’s not do this one.'”

He was successful in killing that story line, so fans never saw Chandler eating sandwiches with scantily clad men.
