When he is caught in a single alongside the mannequin throughout a New York Metropolis blackout, it is maybe one of the best blackout expertise anybody has ever had. His muffled evaluation of the state of affairs to the opposite mates is especially memorable, whereas his failure along with his chewing gum offers some glorious bodily comedy. Thankfully for us, we do not want that safety tape.
9. Joey’s tailor (“The One with Ross’s New Girlfriend”)
Chandler rued the day he requested recommendation on the place to get pants altered. He goes to Frankie, the long-time Tribbiani tailor, the place he cracks a joke about protecting the cuffs “only as long as I have the pants” earlier than being, er, cupped. When he returns dwelling, he is on edge and livid at Joey for sending him to such a person, and is astounded when Joey suggests it is how they do pants. His expressions as Joey realises the reality are incredible and, grim as it’s for the character, these reactions are priceless.
8. Failed proposal to Monica (“The One with the Girl Who Hits Joey”)
The group all know of Chandler and Monica’s relationship, and start to make jokes about their future as a pair, which triggers Chandler’s dedication battle or flight. It causes a rift of their relationship and so forth Joey’s recommendation of creating an enormous gesture, Chandler does the plain factor: suggest to Monica in entrance of everybody. It is so humorous to see the sudden nature of his change of mindset, explaining he does not know why he is doing it however that he isn’t scared to, and that he is sorry (the fourth-best purpose to get married – “The best reason… is pregnancy”). It is only a reduction she does not say sure and trigger him to make a Chandler-shaped gap within the door.
7. Dressing up as Santa (“The One with the Holiday Armadillo”)
Chandler’s an excellent pal. Ross, in making an attempt to show Ben about Hannukah, does not plan to decorate up as Santa and when his son guilts him into it on December 23, he is out of luck, and compelled to decorate because the legendary Holday Armadillo. However Chandler comes by way of, borrowing a Saint Nick costume from a colleague. He is unhappy when despatched away with out attending to “shake my belly like a bowl full of jelly” and after failing to subtly hand Ben cash whereas shaking his hand. It is an excellent sight and candy too when he gives to remain offered Ben learns about Hannukah. An iconic Easter Bunny funeral.
6. Response to being robbed (“The One with the Cat”)
When Joey and Chandler attempt to promote the leisure centre, the pair find yourself being robbed as Joey will get himself trapped inside it by a potential purchaser. Chandler’s preliminary shocked response diffuses the seriousness of it – the visible gag of him arriving dwelling and throwing his keys on the desk, just for them to land on the ground, is nice; so too is his suggestion that if Joey sees the man once more, he’ll merely “Bend over?!” – however his extra thought of evaluation later is the true gem. “Joey was born, and then 28 years later, I was robbed!” Nonetheless, no less than he did not take the 5 of spades.
5. The cheesecake (“The One with All the Cheesecakes”)
“We don’t want her to come back to bad cheesecake.” That is the justification for Chandler and Rachel stealing the second of Mrs. Braverman’s cheesecakes, and he is as humorous because the dessert is scrumptious. He initially tries to put it aside by hoping Mama’s Little Baker is a cheesecake conglomerate (it isn’t), then struggles to say goodbye to a different cake, earlier than later observing that the pair simply do not pay for meals any extra having gone for lunch. But it surely’s his argument over splitting the final cake which stands out, his try to measure the halves previous a magnificently dramatic shocked face at Rachel dropping hers. That the pair finish by scraping bites off the ground solely provides to the hilarity.
4. Coping with Eddie (“The One Where Eddie Won’t Go”)
After Joey strikes out to a elaborate, high-end condo, Chandler will get a brand new roommate, Eddie (Adam Goldberg). However Eddie’s barely loopy and Chandler desires rid of him when he sees Eddie watching him whereas he sleeps. His disbelief at that’s hilarious – “Where did you hear it from before?!” when Eddie says he desires to listen to it from Chandler’s lips – however so too are his reactions when Eddie later dehydrates fruit and brings a model head for a cocktail social gathering. Chandler’s straight-faced ruse that Joey’s at all times lived there’s the factor which makes Eddie go away, and the factor which solidifies this as one in every of Chandler’s nice moments.
3. Trapped in the bathroom (“The One After the Superbowl, Part 2”)
When Chandler meets former schoolmate Susie (Julia Roberts), he thinks he is discovered the proper girl: they flirt, she asks him to do it in an elevator; it is real love. However their courting is simply an elaborate ruse for her to embarrass him as revenge for him lifting her skirt in class. So she has him put on her underwear, then steals his garments in a restaurant rest room. The humiliating second when Joey and Ross each are available and see him uncovered is hilarious, Chandler becoming a member of in on Joey’s whistling, then having to ashamedly entrance up and beg for his or her underwear, earlier than graciously exiting the restaurant utilizing the bathroom door to defend himself.
2. The chair (“The One Where No One’s Ready”)
Ask 100 Associates followers their favorite episode and a good few will counsel this. Joey and Chandler’s battle over use of a chair in Monica and Rachel’s condo is so silly and but so hysterically humorous, and whereas it is Joey’s “Could I be wearing any more clothes?” which stand out, Chandler is a gem right here. His determined run to pounce on the unfastened chair – which prompted Matt LeBlanc to dislocate his shoulder – his shout of “He took my essence” after stealing Joey’s underwear, and his involvement within the glass of fats. It is an absolute hoot.
1. Monica and the maid (“The One with the Stain”)
When Chandler hires a maid to scrub the condo, it sits uncomfortably with Monica, who does not prefer to relinquish management. But it surely’s particularly so as soon as she believes that Brenda (Arden Myrin) has stolen a few of her garments. For 10 seasons of Chandler one-liners, this episode has essentially the most constantly funniest, from his blank-faced “What?” when Monica first suggests the theft to his “I fear a jury will see it the same way” when she says they’re on this collectively. His dramatic “No” when instructed to check out Brenda’s bra has at all times been a private favorite too. This episode is not Chandler-focused however it’s the present’s greatest exhibition of Perry’s comedian timing.
Relaxation in peace, Matthew Perry.
