Matthew Perry Reveals His Favourite 'Chandler' Line

Each Friends, fan has their favourite character, but it is universally acknowledged, and accepted, that Chandler Muriel Bing is 'the funny one'.

He gave us sarcasm, awkwardness (especially around Richard), cringes and loads of material for our future. Maybe that was just us?

He was witty, self-deprecating, sarcastic and he did have most of the best lines.

But which was Matthew Perry's favourite? Surely he must have one? Turns out, he does. And it's probably one of the less memorable.

Speaking to Good Morning America, he revealed which line was his all-time fave:

Just in case you needed a quick refresher.

For those who aren't American a 'Q-tip' is a cotton bud.

If you're a little disappointed you're not alone. But don't worry we've got about 100 better one-liners from Bing-a-Ling.

Here are a few:

1) Chandler: Donald Duck never wears pants, but when he comes out of the shower he always wraps a towel around his waist. I mean, what's all that about?

2) Joey: When you see Frankie, tell him Joey Tribbiani says hello. He'll know what it means.

Chandler: You sure he'll crack that code?


3) Chandler: I'm funny, right? What do you know, you're a door. You only know knock-knock jokes.

4) Monica: "Okay, I've got a leg, three breasts, and a wing."

Chandler: "How do you find clothes that fit?"


We can't just ignore the most exciting part of the interview with Good Morning America which has to be Matthew Perry explaining that he misses the show.

Is it time for a comeback? We would argue absolutely.

Six mates, two siblings, seven babies (Ben, Emma, the triplets and the twins - don't test me), countless weddings (mostly for Ross) and how many coffees? It doesn't sound the most riveting.

But for many, it was a staple of our childhoods. And maybe some of us have re-watched every single episode back to back each night, and hungover Sunday, for the past few weeks. Or months.

All those jokes that used to go over our heads we actually understand now.

However, some viewers are seeing the show in a very different light to when it aired in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Some have labelled the show homophobic, transphobic, sexist, misogynistic and accused it of fat-shaming.

But one of the famous six, Matt LeBlanc - aka struggling actor Joey Tribbiani - has slated those who label the show offensive.

Speaking to the BBC about the new series of Top Gear, the 50-year-old was asked about what he thought of the angry tweets doing the rounds on social media.

He said: "I've heard those rumours too about people taking pot shots at Friends, but I don't want to get into that. I disagree with all that.

"On Friends we steered clear of that kind of thing, too. Friends was about themes that stand the test of time - trust, love, relationships, betrayal, family and things like that."
