The cast of the beloved TV show, “Friends,” just announced their reunion special coming to HBO Max on May 27. “Friends” was a cult classic show that is still loved and quoted to this day. Reruns air all the time and fans were mad when it was taken off of Netflix.
“Friends” followed six friends – Monica Gellar-Bing, Chandler Bing, Ross Gellar, Rachel Green, Joey Tribiani, and Phoebe Buffay – who lived in New York and tried to deal with the struggles of being a 20 or 30-something year-old has to face.
Chandler Bing was no doubt, the most sarcastic character on the show and had a lot of relatable one-liners. He would always crack a joke in the most inopportune time.
Here are the top 5 relatable Chandler Bing quotes.
“I’m hopeless and awkward and desperate for love.”
In Season 3, episode 4, “The One With the Metaphorical Tunnel,” Chandler is on a date with Janice in his apartment where he gives her contact paper and a drawer from his dresser. When she flips out because she thinks Chandler wants her to move in with him after they just got back together, Janice storms out and Chandler tries to come up with an excuse, so he blurts this out. If this isn’t the quote every twenty something uses from time to time. We can all be a little hopeless, awkward, and desperate for love at some point. And most people know the quote and where it is from. Thanks for saying what we were all thinking, Chandler.
“I’m not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?”
Season 8, Episode 17 was where he said this iconic line. Chandler was talking to Rachel about how it will get less awkward once she hangs around Joey more after they expressed their feelings for each other. She asks him how he knows that, and he responds with that line. This is very relatable. Don’t give advice to someone you wouldn’t take haha. Because most of the time when you give it advice it probably backfires, then you are the one they blame.
“Hi, I’m Chandler. I make jokes when I’m uncomfortable.”
In “The One With the Proposal (Season 6, Episode 24)” Chandler wanted to propose to Monica, but her old boyfriend, Richard, shows up, which just makes everything awkward. Richard and Monica start talking and Chandler makes a joke about Richard’s date not having a moustache. Then says, “I make jokes.” This line is super relatable because who doesn’t try to lighten the tension and make a joke when the situation is uncomfortable. Usually, you blurt out the first thing you think of and it doesn’t make any sense.
“Hey, come on. I say more dumb things before 9am than most people say all day.”
In Season 4, Episode 16, “The One With The Fake Party,” Phoebe is looking around for something to eat in Monica’s kitchen. When she can’t find anything, she wants, she knocks over a cereal box and Chandler says she’s a cereal killer. Monica mocks him and he says the quote above, which if you are not a morning person, is very relatable. Don’t talk to me until at least 12PM haha.
“I’m A Gym Member. I Try To Go Four Times A Week, But I’ve Missed The Last Twelve Hundred Times.”
In “The One With the Ballroom Dancing” (Season 4, Episode 4) Chandler wants to quit the gym. He has a membership that he has never used, but every time he tries to cancel it, the people at the desk convince him not to. Everyone relates to this at some point. You know you should work out, but work and life get in the way and you just don’t. You consistently have money taken out every month, but you are too anxious to actually cancel it and disappoint someone. Yeah, very relatable.
