LIVE POLL: If Chandler Bing Responded to Iconic Quotes (Matthew Perry tribute)

This is a melancholy day for all the friends of Friends (1994) as the sad passing of Matthew Perry shook a community of fans that transcend generations.

The show ended almost 20 years ago but its legacy is intact, its influence undeniable and its sense of comedic timing hardly equaled. And it's fair to say that the lion-share of the laughs was provided by one particular friend.

Joey was goofy, Ross was awkward but Chandler was... well, call it wit, sarcasm, deadpan, tongue-in-cheek or self-derision but whatever defined his humor was so unique and bizarre that any TV character can be as funny as Chandler but no character will ever be funny the way he was.

Chandler was indeed such an iconic (and likable) character that many polls were dedicated to his unforgettable one-liners: the first one and the second so another 'Chandler Bing' quotes might have been redundant. The following poll invites you to imagine Chandler Bing being present when some iconic American movies quotes were delivered... and then vote for the funniest response.

So which of these Chandlerisms inserted in classic movie quotes is your favorite?

And Rest in Peace, Matthew Perry aka Miss Chanandler Bong...

Thank you for sharing Chandler Bing's inspired lunacy in an unexpected but much appreciated In Memoriam poll for Matthew Perry.

For Field of Dreams, should it say "it's not a 'he'"? Or maybe I just didn't understand your meaning.

The 'not a she' refers to the 'he will come' part, whoever comes won't be a member of the female persuasion...

I have no pretension of competting with the show's writers of course, if any of the jokes fall a little flat or if you have better phrasing to suggest, please do so...

I'd ratier have 15 strong options than 30  with too many obscure  ones...

ElMo, thanks for making such a creative In Memoriam poll. Thank you also for linking my polls.

Found a typo:

when some iconic American movie quotes were delivered... 

And maybe you can add a space between the quote and the response:

"You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am."

"Could you be anymore self-critical?"

Sadly, the poll software wraps text unless there is a blank line.

ElMo, thanks for making such a creative In Memoriam poll. Thank you also for linking my polls.

I fully agree with Jessica.

@ElMaruecan82 ,

Thank you for adding the blank lines for most of the choices. These choice still need attention:

5. The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

6. Auntie Mame (1958)

8. Sudden Impact (1983)

9. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

13. Hell's Angels (1930)

20. Scream (1996)

21. The Terminator (1984)

27. Field of Dreams (1989)

28. Fight Club (1999)

I've made a few changes before checking your list, can you tell me which ones are still worthy a second reading... I did my best ... I could really relate to Chandler's deadpan humor but between this and replicating his style, there's a whole word...

@ElMaruecan82​ ,

I find all of the replies humorous, even those that are non sequiturs.

I will let true fans of "Friends", such as @Jessica​ select the better rejoinders.

This choice still needs a double space.

25. Fight Club (1999)

Let me guess the third rule: you do not be redundant!"

Doesn't sound quite right.

Please also correct this typo:

when some iconic American movie quotes were delivered...

By the way, I don't know what's up with Sprinklr. I had to edit my first sentence several times because words kept being removed.

I agree, I wasn't too hot about it, let me know if the new writing is better.
