    I've seen the episode of The One where Heckles dies a bunch of times. He taps the ceiling with the broom trying to tell Monica and the others to be quiet and everybody starts stomping and he stops tapping. I don't get how he died. Please someone tell me how he died.

    When they went to clean out the apartment, everyone realized how sound was magnified down there. With all of them jumping at once, the sound would have been incredible. The implication was that he had some kind of cardiac event because he was startled by the thundering noise. At least that's how I watched it.

    I get the impression that he had a heart attack stressing himself out over how loud they were.

    Yeah I always figured he had a heart attack. Poor Mr. Heckles. I love Chandler's line at the end of the episode though, "Goodbye Mr. Heckles, we'll try to keep it down."
