Top Ten Best Friends Characters

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 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? '
'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

I don't like him. I hate him. For somebody who like Chandler do you like his character. He destroys something that make the Friends happy. He smokes. You like smoking. Me not. He was saying funny which are stupid.

His evolution from heavy smoker, sad,sarcastic and not caring about his job because he gets good money to hard-working husband and father who takes risks in work life to pursue what he wants. I just love him. So many Iconic quotes!

2 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 ...more

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

He my favorite character from friends along with with his sister cookie

A kid in an adults body. Love it. His heart is in the right place for his friends and he breaks up with people if they don’t like them and how you doing is iconic.

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

Ross is my least favourite friend because he cheats a lot in the series on bonnie and Julie and I think Rachel and is quite self-entitled and has to be right. He falls in love with his cousin. Yuck

Ross is my favourite (right before Chandler). And that's not only because of him but because of David Schwimmer! This actor is extraordinary. He makes Ross what he is: His body language, voice management (? ) and facial expressions are just so on point that I can't stop laughing about him. I know he gets a lot of hate and he's surely not perfect but guys, think about it! Some of the most iconic scenes are with Ross including "Pivot", "We were on a break", "Unagi", the leather pants, the fake tan, or his marriages...

Simply brilliant, Ross is very clumsy and shy but is deep down very good friend and therefor very good person. Amazing character!

4 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!

Phoebe is so funny. I like her. She marries Mike. She is my favorite. She is better than Chandler. She should be in 1#.

"I love all of the "Friends" about equally but, Phoebe has to be my favorite. She is by far the funniest one, to me. She's so weird and endearing, it's hard not to love her. Her best scenes are: When she sees Monica and Chandler doing it, trying to get Sting tickets, "This is madness, Monica", When she sings with her cold... And so many more

Phoebe is one the best Friends character. After completing this series no one can forget get. She believes in what she thinks. She won't mind about others. Most of the time her activities would be childish but matured than others some time.

5 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.

Monica taught me its okay to get
anxious about the little things.

Best female character - by a mile

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

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.

Spoiled self-entitled immature girl to put together selfless mother the journey she takes is so inspiring. Love her

Rachel taught me that I can be what
I want no matter what anyone says.

Rachel provides the most entertainment in the show she is arguably the main focus of the T.V. series without Rachel there is no show! Should definitely be in the top 3.

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
Gunther goes behind Joey
Gunther: RACHEL?

8 Mike Hannigan

So funny and when he first meet phoebe it was funny how joey said he hit his mother with a car and most importantly joey said they were friends when they have never actually met I found than really funny

I would had liked to see more of mike

Love Paul Rudd and I love Mike's relationship with Phoebe!

I love Paul Rudd with all my heart

9 Janice Litman Garelnick

Love her personality and random appearances are great especially when she misinterprets Monica and Chandler and thinks they think of her as family. Just love to hate her.

She is a husband stealer who stole
Gary Litman the mattress king.

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!

10 Jack Geller

Jack and his wife are so funny and cute. Jack Geller always makes me crack up to be honest.

Jack geller! Buried in the sea.. huh! He's such a fun loving character and I love how he and his wife interacts. sooo sweet!

The weirdly unique father

Chandler: woah it snowing out there?
Jack: NO!

The Contenders

11 Amy Green

The girl Rachel would be if she hadn’t made such strong choices. Love how she thinks phoebe is Emma hilarious.

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.

12 Ugly Naked Guy

Oh look! Cute naked guy is gaining weight.

Look Ulgy Naked Guy is...

Hey look! The ugly naked Guy has gained weight.

Funnier then Ross geller

13 The Monkey

"The Monkey" has a name!

Screw the monkey

Marcel is the bomb


14 Tag

He was adorable, I loved he and Rachel's relationship. It was sad to see him go

Aww he's so cute! It's sad that rachel had to dump him because of the age gap :(

15 Mr. Heckles

I could have been number 1!

Most underrated character on the show

His randomness cracks me up!

Duplicate of Chandler Bing

16 Richard Burke

Richard was delicious! No wonder Monica had a hard time getting over him!

Oh him! Richard.. ! He wanted me to marry a grown up caring sweet guy like him :) I love him

Richard was awesome!

17 Emma Geller-Green

I only adore her because she is the spawn of Rachel (da best thing that ever happened to friends)

She's adorable!

18 David

Underrated character, great actor and very funny! I can't believe he is below marcel the monkey!

19 Nina Bookbinder

Like once it was not like was going to za mans place boom jimmy


20 Frank Jr.
21 Susie Moss
22 Richard Crosby
23 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

Bravest girl

24 Eddie Menuek

One of the funniest character ever on the show.

Love how crazy this guy was

Eddie was hilarious

Psychotic son of a bitch

25 Judy Geller

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

She the worst character

Annoying mother

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
