Matthew Perry revealed his favourite Chandler joke a decade after Friends ended

Matthew Perry revealed his favourite Chandler joke a decade after Friends ended

Matthew Perry, who recently died at the age of 54, was asked on Good Morning America what his favourite Friends joke was

Matthew Perry once picked his favourite joke from the entirety of Friends.

In the video below, you can see which moment he went for:

Perry sadly died this weekend aged 54 at his home in Los Angeles.

During his career he took on many roles, but none brought him such widespread fame and popularity than his time playing Chandler Bing in Friends.

Perry, as well as his co-stars Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow, became household names and at the height of the show were believed to be earning millions for each episode.

Perry’s character was known for his dry and witty humour, as well as the acerbic one-liners that came thick and fast during the entire show.

So, it must have been hard for him to pick a favourite one, but that’s exactly what he was asked to do on an episode of Good Morning America back in 2017.

The one he chose is from an episode called ‘The One with Ross’ New Girlfriend’, which was the first episode of the second season and aired in September 1995.

In the episode, Joey Tribbiani – played by LeBlanc and not famed for his smarts – starts telling a story about his family tailor.

“He did my first suit when I was 15,” Joey says.

Then, he corrects himself: “No, wait – 16.”

As Chandler goes to turn away from him, he grabs him once more: “No, excuse me – 15.”

Then, he asks: “Wait, when was 1990?”

This seems to have been about as much as Chandler could stand.

He shouts at Joey: “OK, you have to stop the Q-tip when there’s resistance!”

For those who don’t know, Q-Tips are the American word for the cotton buds that you can use to clean your ears.

Although, many medical professionals advise against using them.

After that, as the camera cut back to Perry in the studio, he admits that he ‘misses’ the show.

Friends was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffmann and ran from 1994 until 2004, taking in a whole 10 seasons.

During that time, the six major characters all grew up before the audience’s eyes, and left a big hole in a lot of people’s hearts when they eventually left screens forever.

That seems to be why so many have been affected by Perry’s untimely passing.

In a statement announcing his death, his family said: "We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother.

"Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend.

"You all meant so much to him and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love."
