The ultimate king of sarcasm and awkward situations, Chandler Bing from FRIENDS is one of the most loved characters on the planet. With this self-made (but true!) fact, we’ve listed out the 10 best reasons why we love him, and wherever possible, listed out the exact quotes to help you see why we cannot stop gushing over this adorable weird man. Here’s why Chandler Bing is the best:
1. He makes you laugh.
“Hi, I’m Chandler. I make jokes when I’m uncomfortable.” (S06E24)
2. The adorable way he loves
When Monica worries that she’s high maintenance:
Chandler: “I’m sorry. You’re not easy-going, but you’re passionate, and that’s good. And when you get upset about the little things, I think that I’m pretty good about making you feel better about that. And that’s good too. So, they can say that you’re high maintenance, but it’s okay, because I like … maintaining you.” (S06E12)
3. His idea of a future
Monica: How many kids were we gonna have?
Chandler: Uh, four, a boy, twin girls and another boy.
Monica: What else did you think about?
Chandler: Well, stuff like where’d we live, you know? Like a small place outside the city, where our kids could learn to ride their bikes and stuff. You know, we could have a cat that had a bell on its collar and we could hear it every time it ran through the little kitty door. Of course, we’d have an apartment over the garage where Joey could grow old. (S07E02)
4. His marriage proposal
Chandler: I thought that it mattered what I said or where I said it. Then I realized the only thing that matters is that you, you make me happier than I ever thought I could be. And if you’ll let me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you feel the same way. Monica, will you marry me?(S06E25)
5. Doing everything he can to make his wife happy
When Monica and Chandler are unable to convince the surrogate mother to give them her child:
Chandler: I love my wife more than anything in this world. And I… It kills me that I can’t give her a baby. I really want a kid. And when that day finally comes, I’ll learn how to be a good dad. But my wife, she’s already there. She’s a mother without a baby. Please? (S10E09)
6. When he goofs up
Remember when Chandler went to bond with Monica’s dad, he accidently sat on his lap? And then when he went again, he wore no clothes? (S07E03)
7. He is the king of sarcasm.
“I’m not good at advice but can I interest u in a sarcastic comment?”
When the hugely popular Facebook page for “Sarcasm” has Chandler Bing as their display picture, you know he is the king of sarcasm. Want more proof? Watch any episode of Friends!
8. How he is so smooth with ladies (this is in fact, sarcasm)
Remember when he couldn’t stop giggling when he and Ross flirted with a lady at the coffee house?
Remember how he lost his virginity at 19? Remember how his first girlfriend was Janice?
9. His touch of feminism
Monica: How about you go put on your 007 tuxedo and I’ll make you a nice martini.
Chandler: Actually, I don’t like martinis.
Monica: How about a Youhoo with a funny straw?
Chandler: Ooh, yum! (Runs into the bedroom.) (S07E20)
Monica: I know! After you left the store I chose different ones.
Monica: well, no offense honey, but your taste is a little feminine for me.
Chandler: Oh suddenly flowers are feminine? (S09E08)
10. His way of making up to someone
Remember when Chandler stayed in a box to make it up to Joey, when he kissed his girlfriend Kathy? (S04E08)
