Marginal thinking in "The One with the Free Porno" - Friends
by Dirk Mateer `

One day Joey and Chandler find a free porn station on their cable television. The building superintendent tells them that when this happened to him he turned off the TV and the free porn was gone not to return. In fear that they too may lose the station, the guys decide to leave the TV on the channel 24/7 just to be safe. Throughout the episode the porn channel is in the background. We've edited together all the shots into one compilation. By the end, the guys are so sick of porn that they decide to turn it off. Perfect example of diminishing marginal utility, or how something that has value becomes worthless with enough exposure.
