Top Ten Best Friends Characters

TheSudhanva
F.R.I.E.N.D.S is my most favorite sitcom of all time. It is a great show, with some very lovable characters...

The Top Ten

1 Chandler Bing Chandler Bing Chandler Muriel Bing is a fictional character from the NBC sitcom Friends, portrayed by Matthew Perry.

There are 2 particular quotes that keep playing in my mind;
Joey drilling holes in the wall as he's building a new entertainment unit and the camera goes to the other side of the wall where Chandler nodded off and the drill bit is spinning rapidly going backwards and forwards in front of Chandlers face which wakes him up, scaring the hell out of him and rushes out the room slamming the door looking at Joey in annoyment and Joey looks to him and says;
'Oh sorry man, did I get you? '
Chandler;
'NO You didn't get me... It's an electric drill... You GET Me You KILL ME! '

The other one I also loved is when the scene shows Chandler sleeping, and you see Jimmy (His crazy rebound room mate) sitting watching him which scares the hell out of Chandler when he realizes he's there, about 30 seconds into them talking Chandler says;
'Hannibal Lecter... Better room mate than you'

These 2 quotes specially made me actually snort when laughing.

And to finish this ...more

I've watched all the friends episodes a few times and it seems to me that Chandler is the only one among the six main characters that evolves normally. He is the only one that goes from immature/childish to mature, with a few ups and downs. He is also the only one that has common sense and strong principles and he is the best one to have as a friend, in my opinion.

As for Ross, I really liked him in the first seasons, but he gets a little weird and hard to follow after his divorce with Emily. Same thing with Phoebe, who was my favorite character at the beginning, but just gets annoying after the 5th season. Joey never grows and acts like a child throughout the series, which can be frustrating at times. Rachel's life changes a lot, which is fun to witness, but she doesn't quite evolve as a person, except at the very beginning. Monica, as Ross said, is the glue who holds the group together, and the series sure wouldn't work without her, but she is not my favorite ...more

Chandler has an amazing sense of humor and is no question the funniest guy on the show. He is also very sweet to Monica. Best EVER!

Chan number 1. Joey close number 2 then Rachel then Phoebe then Monica then guest characters and extras and then Ross who is annoying and not really a friend.

2 Joey Tribbiani Joey Tribbiani Joseph Francis "Joey" Tribbiani, Jr. is a character from the NBC sitcoms Friends and its spin-off Joey, portrayed by Matt LeBlanc.

I bet no one can be as selfless and caring as joey... He is the best.

He refused to watch ursula's port when they thought it was phoebe's.(while the others watched it).

He was concerned about chandler getting a job than winning a lottery, even when Monica was obsessed with the lottery.

He didn't want Rachel to move out. He was ready to stay away from women who had a problem with the baby. To be honest, joey and Rachel was a wonderful pair who would get along really well.

He asked Rachel to move in with Ross when he realized Ross was feeling left out on all the baby things.
He was ready even to pee on Monica during an emergency.

He offered to marry phoebe and Rachel when he came to know they were pregnant just because it would be difficult for single mother's.

He considered ross's feelings when Rachel confessed to him. He always wanted Ross and Rachel to be together despite his love for Rachel. He even made plans with phoebe for that.

His "How you doing? ", his stupidities, his innocent nature, so good at heart... N just so simply funny... I love joey!

Sexist bit hilarious!

My Man Joey is the BEST!

3 Ross Geller

Ross needs to be number one seriously. This is the best show ever and he is the greatest thing about it. His tan, his roller skates, everything about him is hilarious. "I'm fine" " we were on a break" " Oh my God, you know what, I think you're right! I think, you know what, listen, listen... a pigeon... no, no, wait, an eagle flew in, landed on the stove, and caught fire! The baby, seeing this, jumps across the apartment to the mighty bird's aid! The eagle, however, misconstrues this as an act of aggression, and grabs the baby in it's talon! Meanwhile, the faucet fills the apartment with water! Baby and bird, still ablaze, are locked in a death-grip, swirling around the whirlpool that fills the apartment" sorry if I didn't mention your fave quote

He is so sad but really funny

Anyway

I don't get why people don't like him I think that he is really funny

4 Phoebe Buffay Phoebe Buffay Phoebe Buffay-Hannigan is a fictional character, portrayed by Lisa Kudrow, one of the six main characters from the American sitcom Friends.

She is the funniset person I have ever seen on T.V.. I love it when ross is on the bagpipes and she starts going e! Its hilarious!

IMAGINE NOT PICKING PHOEBE? She's the funniest character and I adore her bubbly personality!

I find her so funny, I remember watching Friends, and I was laughing the entire time because of her! - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Phoebe is the best character. Makes me laugh every scene she is in. Probably the funniest female character on any show

5 Monica Geller Monica Geller Monica E. Geller is a fictional character, one of the six main characters who appear in the American sitcom Friends.

I love Monica. I think she was under rated. She was exremely stunning but she was not JUST a beautiful face.She was the best character of the three girls. And one of the strongest female characters of all times. She was selfless and lets Rachel live with her though they had grown apart and Rachel hadn't even invited her to her wedding. She is caring and mature and wise. She is competitive and a cleanliness freak, yeah, but that adds more points to women power. Unlike Rachel, who was pampered, spoilt and selfish and Phoebe who was kind of mean, Monica is independent, confident and realistic. She was a hard worker and was up for an any challenge. All girls need tips from her on how to lose weight ( because, hello? ) and how to accomplish your goals and follow your dreams even if your parents prefer your brother to you and how to make excellent excellent food.(Chandler is SO lucky). And she is a great girlfriend. Unlike Rachel and Phoebe, she has never broken up with Chandler during the ...more

Though strict and bossy, she is the one who keeps the group together. -

I love her, shes heaps funny when she's drunk - ChelseaPurnell

Monica is not the perfect but light years better than rachel

6 Rachel Green Rachel Green Rachel Karen Green is a fictional character, one of the six main characters who appeared in the American sitcom Friends.

I love her she is sexy

Rachel is definitely number 6. She might have evolved from a runaway bride to a successful business women. And I definitely support her boldness for breaking up with Ross on cheating her on the pretext of a "technicality". But other than that she's too irritating and never once I remember her giving any serious comedy. She is pretty of course but Jennifer's acting wasn't really up to the mark. The Ross-Rachel love story lagged on for too long while it should have ended at least when she became pregnant. She is the one who won't let off Ross and ruins his marriage,at least blows up six of his dates and in the end comes back only when Ross desperately pleads to her. But its still sad that Jennifer was the most successful of the friends cast after the show's end although much greater talent was found in Kudrow,Perry and even Courtney. - kattapa

The funniest! Best timing, best jokes, best reaction, best character arc.

I love Jennifer Aniston and her character. Rachel is such a nice girl, especially when she looks out for Ross when he brakes up with someone - ChelseaPurnell

7 Gunther

Lol, he has loved rachel for years. -

I love his crush on rachel!

I love it when he found out that Rachel and Ross are together so he went in what I assume is the cafe's kitchen and destroyed everything in it out of anger causing a commotion. And when he comes back he says: I dropped a cup...

Joey: I like Rachel
Ross: Rachel? Rachel?
When he leaves and he looks into the window
Ross:RACHEL?
Gunther goes behind Joey
Gunther: RACHEL?

9 Janice Litman Garelnick

People find her annoying, but she doesn't mean to be. She is sweet and caring, and she always tries her best. She's actually very complex for a supporting role.

I love the Chandler/Janice storyline!

I'm from New Jersey so I can relate!

Life would be so boring without Janice. Plus, I think she did love Chandler a lot

Rachel's self-centred and very unreasonable sister. Though she appeared only for two shows, her performance was superb. -

Like Janice, I would had slapped her.

The Contenders

Eddie was hilarious

One of the funniest character ever on the show.

Love how crazy this guy was

Psychotic son of a bitch

25 Carol Willick

She is so sweet! Ross and her still cares about each other after the divorce and they're so sweet

Carol is kind of an empowering lesbian role model.

She is a sweet character - Daviddv0601

26 Judy Geller

Two reasons: 1) horrible mother 2) horrid hag bottom line, she is a awful person

She the worst character

She was hilarious! When she told them all off at thanksgiving, when she tried to get Ross to propose to Rachel “she’s not just some girl you picked up in the bar and humped”, when she told the story about Ross pulling on his testicles so hard they had to go to the hospital when he first met newborn Monica- please people! She is typical mom of that era and perfect match with Jack

27 Dutch Lady (The One with the Football)

Dutch lady is the best acting most well developed character on the show

Why would anyone think that random lady is number 1

Margha is the name

28 Nora Bing

She's sexy for someone her age

I pity chandler for his parents. A dad that's a slut and a mom you can't plow

29 Susan Bunch

Susan must be the most annoying T.V. character of all time.

She is such a bitch in this show! She stole Ross's wife away from him and made her a lesbian! She was the true main antagonist in the first and I think second season of the show. She also appears as a villain whenever she appears in any later episodes. I really can't stand her. - Daviddv0601

30 Ugly Naked Girl

Its ugly naked guy - ChelseaPurnell

Best Unseen Character Ever

31 Emily

Hated her, she was such a brat.

Ross' British second wife who can get a bit moody!
