F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is the first sitcom I started watching and I have been a fan right from the first episode. That moment when Ross says “I just want to be married again..” and Rachel enters wearing a white gown, and that’s the first time Chandler quips “And I… just want a million dollars!” That’s when I knew without a doubt that he was going to be my favourite character!
Chandler Muriel Bing (or, as I fondly call him, Miss Chanandler Bong)! Where do I begin?
Where do you begin with someone as awesome and funny and witty and smart and lame and adorable as Chandler? And his sarcasm! Oh God! Could he BE more sarcastic??!?!?
To every British person who thinks Americans can’t imitate their acerbic wit, or that sarcasm is only a Brit thing, I wanna shove Chandler Bing into their faces!
Joey: Just because she went to Yale Drama, she thinks she’s like, the greatest actress since sliced bread. Chandler: Ah, Sliced Bread. A wonderful Lady Macbeth.
One of the best things about him is how much he loves Monica, her OCD and all.
Earlier I used to think about him as the lame (even though exceptionally funny) guy in the group, but since this episode I started thinking of him as, well, a guy!
I don’t know… he just looked really hot in it- with that unbuttoned shirt and everything. Hehe….
No pictures do him justice though. Gifs simply come close to capturing the essence of this person that we know as Chandler Bing (his parents really did take away his chances, with a name like that, didn’t they?).
What comes the closest to describing him are, of course, his very own quotes, and honestly, would you rather I rambled or had Chandler advocate himself and make you nostalgic about those good old days when you watched this hilarious and adorable group of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. who lived life their own way, always sticking together and taking shit from nobody? :’)
>> You know what’s weird? Donald Duck never wore pants. But whenever he’s getting out of the shower, he always puts a towel around his waist. I mean, what is that about?
>> Handle? I can handle it. Handle is my middle name. Well, actually its the middle part of my first name.
>> Monica: Shut up. The camera adds ten pounds.
Chandler: So, how many cameras are actually on you?
>> (To Joey when he raises the idea of hitting a woman whom they thought was a stalker with a frying pan) Yes, hitting her with a frying pan is a good idea. We might want to have a back-up plan though, just in case she isn’t a cartoon!
>> Chandler: What else you got? Magazines, Diretoes… Condoms?
Joey: Hey, you don’t know how long where going to be in here. We may have to repopulate the Earth.
Chandler: And condoms are the way to do that?
>> You know, on second thought, gum would be perfection.
>> Rachel: Guess what, guess what, guess what!
Chandler: Let’s see, the fifth dentist caved, now they all recommend trident?
>> Chandler: [Enters Central Perk Monica, Ross and Phoebe are there] Oh good, okay, I can’t take it anymore. I can’t take it anymore. So you win, okay? Here! [Hands him the 50 bucks he’s about to owe him]
Chandler: – Pheebs? Flying a jet? Better make it a spaceship so that you can get back to your HOME planet! – And Ross, phone call for you today, Tom Jones, he wants his pants back! – And Hornswoggle? What are you dating a character from Fraggile Rock? [He sits down and sighs in relief]
