We were all deeply saddened by the loss of Matthew Perry last week. While Perry had many standout roles, Chandler Bing in “Friends” was one of the most beloved characters in TV history. Here is a list of my personal favorite “Friends” episodes to honor Matthew Perry. 

5. “The One with Unagi” 


This is one of the funniest episodes of the whole show. In this episode, Ross tries to teach martial arts to Rachel and Phoebe, while Chandler and Monica give each other homemade Valentine’s Day gifts. Ross is the standout of this episode and his martial arts teachings will definitely make you die of laughter

4. “The One Where Everybody Finds Out”


Monica and Chandler have been sneaking around since London and finally in this episode, the lies come to an end. Phoebe and Rachel discover Monica and Chandler’s secret and they try to mess with them. Phoebe gets flirty with Chandler, which then allows Monica to realize that they know. The entire episode is a hilarious game of chicken where Phoebe and Chandler try to get each other to crack. 

3. “The One With The Rumor”


The next episode takes place during Thanksgiving and guest stars Brad Pitt! In this episode, Monica invites an old friend from high school, Will (Brad Pitt) to join them for Thanksgiving dinner, but she doesn’t know about his hatred for Rachel. Will and Ross had an “I Hate Rachel Green” club in high school and they used to make up rumors about her. This episode is hilarious, festive and witty all in one. 

2. “The One With The Football”


Here is another Thanksgiving episode, but this time it revolves around football. In this episode, the gang decides to play a friendly game of football while waiting for their dinner to cook. The game quickly escalates because of Ross and Monica’s competitiveness with each other. This episode is hilarious and brilliant as the two siblings compete for the “Geller Cup,” an old prize they made up as kids, and the rest of the gang could care less about football. This is the best Thanksgiving episode, in my opinion. 

1. “The One With the Embryos”


This is my all-time favorite “Friends” episode and I frequently rewatch it. While this episode features Phoebe undergoing surgery to get pregnant, people remember this episode as the one with the game show. Chandler and Joey compete against Rachel and Monica in a trivia game about each other. This episode never fails to make me burst into laughter and Ross as the game show host is hilarious. 

If you are feeling a binge of “Friends” or just want to revisit some great Chandler moments, I highly recommend watching the episodes listed above.
