1 question in The One with Mrs. Bing

The One with Mrs. Bing - S1-E11

Question: When we first see Mrs Bing on TV, Jay Leno mentions that she recently got arrested and asks how it came about. Her response is "occasionally, after being intimate with a man, I just get a craving for Kung Pao chicken" This gets a lot of cheers and laughter from the audience and Chandler shouts "that's too much information!" at the TV. What was happening here? Why does what Mrs Bing said get so much of a reaction from everyone and not answer the question she was asked? Am I missing something?

Chosen answer: Nora Bing, Chandler's mother, is a famous author of steamy romance novels. Like many celebrities, she deflects direct personal questions by giving a non-direct answer. In this case, she gives a somewhat titillating response that amuses the audience by ambiguously implying that after having sex, she has a need to rush out for Chinese food and that resulted in the escapade getting her arrested. Chandler is constantly embarrassed by both his parents, and his mother in particular because he feels she does not act her age and is sexually uninhibited.

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
