Like every episode of so far, "Katie Girls" had no shortage of serious . But as fans have come to find out thanks to the internet, a much more light-hearted (and downright hilarious) scene between Randall and Toby was actually supposed to be in there to break up the intensity.
The deleted scene, which has surfaced all over #ThisIsUs Twitter overnight, shows Randall and Toby sharing a rather ... "intimate" moment at the hospital while Kate is undergoing surgery. As the couple's IVF doctor announced as Kate was taken in, she needed to collect some of Toby's sperm in the meantime (you can see where this is going).
The only problem? Toby is so stressed out and worried about everything that he's having a hard time relaxing and ... you know. And so, true to character, Randall is willing to do anything to help out his brother-in-law. Randall asks Toby to tell him a scenario where he's comfortable. When Toby responds "sitting on the couch watching eating a frozen-yogurt pop," Randall does his best to make Toby feel like he's doing just that. Watch the whole thing and get ready to roll on the floor:
Not surprisingly, the clip quickly became a hit with , who seemed pretty outraged that producers decided to nix it from the final cut.
Thankfully, the show's creator, Dan Fogelman, provided fans with a little bit of clarity over why the scene got chopped. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the actors or the content and everything to do with simply not having enough time.
But really, Dan, NEEDS these funny moments. Especially since fans are about to dive into the world of Jack's service in Vietnam, 's familial struggles, and Kate and Toby's fertility journey, any and every chuckle will be definitely appreciated.
