One of our favourite sitcoms might have finished over more than a decade ago, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve forgotten it. Friends stays bright in our minds and hearts as it did when it first aired. And face it, no one is ever going to forget this show. While we all have our favourites from among the six, there is no doubt about who the funniest one was. With a funny name, a quick wit, and the ability to use humour as a defense mechanism, Chandler Bing made us laugh till we cried throughout the show. Let’s have a look at some of his best jokes right here.
#1 The one where he didn’t lie about his skills
Rachel was freaking out about whether she and Joey will ever go back to being friends after he told her that he was in love with her.
Chandler: I’m not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?
#2 The one where he read our minds
Rachel had gone for dinner with Mark regarding a job opportunity after she got fired from Ralph Lauren. Ross, meanwhile, still thought that Mark was only helping her to get to have sex with her.
Chandler: It’s seven years ago. My time machine works!
#3 The one where he was SO scared
Joey had an audition where he had to play a 19-year-old, so he tried dressing and talking like one.
Joey: ‘Sup? ‘Sup, dude?
Chandler: Take whatever you want, just please don’t hurt me.
#4 The one where he had no choice
It was Phoebe and Mike’s rehearsal dinner. Although Phoebe asked him not to make any jokes….
Chandler: I so rarely get to practice my meals before I eat them.
#5 The one where it was too much
Ross comes back from the tanning salon. Monica and Chandler are shocked.
Chandler: Hold on, there’s something different.
Ross: I went to that tanning place your wife suggested.
Chandler: Was that place the sun?
#6 The one where he would, but couldn’t
Chandler had a “guy problem” he needed to talk to Joey about, but his humour got the best of him even then!
Chandler: You guys don’t have this problem, you’re made of wood!
#7 The one where he couldn’t control himself
When Chandler was working in Tulsa, Monica had a new colleague she found hilarious. Naturally, Chandler was jealous, and started cracking jokes even before Monica was there to hear them.
Chandler: I’m funny, right? What do you know, you’re a door. You just like knock-knock jokes!
#8 The one where he was prepared
Dr. Drake Ramoray has a stalker and when she comes up to the apartment, Joey and Chandler are scared.
Chandler: 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!
#9 The one where he was confused
Phoebe was talking about how she could get Mike to propose to her again after she dissed the way he was originally going to, and also had said no to him in Barbados.
Chandler: If I were a guy….did I just say if I were a guy?”
#10 The one where he questioned Joey’s childhood
Joey and Chandler had to pick up Ben from the city Human Resources department after they lost him on a bus. Unfortunately, there were two babies and they didn’t know which one was Ben. So, they decided to flip a coin.
Chandler: We have to assign heads to something!
Joey: Okay, okay. Ducks is heads because ducks have heads!
Chandler: What kind of scary ass clowns came to your birthday??!!
#11 The one that was tailor-made for him
When Chandler wanted a tailor and Joey recommended his own tailor, Frankie.
Joey: When you see Frankie, tell him Joey Tribbiani says hello. He’ll know what it means.
Chandler: You’re sure he’s gonna be able to crack that code?
#12 The one where he was right
Chandler offered to set Rachel up with someone from his office. Rachel had specifications.
Rachel: But no accountants. And no one from like legal. I don’t like guys with boring jobs.
Chandler: Oh and Ross was like what? A lion tamer?
