The show’s producers asked Fusco to improvise, he explained in an interview with the “Today” show that is now going viral.
“I was a little bit skeptical because my English then wasn’t as good as it is now, let’s face it,” said Fusco in the segment marking the comedy’s 25th anniversary. “But I was told not to speak any English: ‘Just say whatever you want in Italian.’”

Paolo briefly dated Jennifer Aniston’s Rachel Green until he made a pass at Phoebe Buffay (played by Lisa Kudrow) during a massage.
Fusco still had affection for his character, however, saying he “would love to see him now, after 25 years, how he presents himself.”
