*NightmareFuel: "The One with the Thanksgiving": The flashback where Chandler gets his toe accidentally chopped off. We don't actually see the gory result but we do see the knife falling in slow motion with the ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' theme playing, before it quickly cuts to Chandler being rushed to the hospital on a gurney. Sweet nightmares, folks...

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Thanks to ValuesDissonance and the growing acceptance of the [=LGBT=] community, Chandler's father Charles receives a lot of sympathy from modern audiences who, in turn, put most of the blame on Chandler for their strained relationship. Regardless of his sexuality, Charles' behavior as a parent (having sex orgies in front of his son, trying to kidnap Chandler from a Cub Scout meeting, etc.) was borderline child abuse and would definitely traumatize a child in real life. With that in mind, can you really blame Chandler for not wanting to spend much time with him as an adult?
** Kathy, Chandler's Season 4 girlfriend. See it from her point of view--her boyfriend irrationally accuses her of cheating, then cruelly throws how their relationship started in her face, unfairly and hypocritically spinning it as her being some vamp who seduced him, rather than a mutual thing. Then he ignores her for over a week--unlike Ross, after this time, she could have legitimately assumed that the relationship was over, and given what she said to Chandler we he finally does show up, she did. It's not surprising that she did go and sleep with the other guy. And worst of all, when it all ends, Chandler still spins it as her being a tramp who cheated on him, completely ignoring how he contributed to the problem.

* LoveItoHateIt: Ross. There are people that find him sympathetic, lovable and admire David Schwimmer's over-the-top acting and they are people who just can't stand this iconic character because of his flaws and quirks being too larger than life and maybe kinda annoying.

** ''WebVideo/AfterHours'' argued [[http://www.cracked.com/video_19324_6-friends-characters-who-are-actually-terrible-people.html here]] that ''all'' of the main characters are spectacularly nasty, cruel, stupid, selfish, homophobic, lecherous people, but unlike in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', the show doesn't end with them getting their comeuppance.

** When Kathy and Chandler break up, Chandler initially solely blames Kathy for seeing another man, but backpedals and admits that if he hadn't been so falsely accusative and jealous and had actually bothered to contact her immediately after their fight, then maybe things could have been avoided. However, Rachel then says Chandler isn't to blame and no matter what happened, it doesn't justify sleeping with someone else. Since that hits a little too close to home and mirrors what happened when he and Rachel broke up, Ross sheepishly suggests maybe she thought they were on a break. The scene is supposed to portray Rachel as being in the right and the whole thing being at Ross' expense, but he does have a valid argument that Kathy may have genuinely believed that Chandler had broke up with her since Chandler pettily cut all ties with her for over a week. It's the reason some people consider her Unintentionally Sympathetic.

** The "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naOyG_1VZS4 double fist bump]]" that the gang uses as the equivalent of flipping off someone.

** In 'The One With the Girl who Hits Joey' Chandler goes overboard and proposes to Monica at the end, even though he isn't ready. They're in the same location & positions they are when the real proposal happens.

*** This becomes a double squick moment when you realize that Ross KISSED A GIRL WHO HAD PASSED OUT ON HIS BED! Even if he thought it was Rachel this is still borderline rape, or at least sexual assault. It's especially creepy since Joey was actually in the same situation in an earlier episode and actually did the right thing (Covering her with a blanket, getting a bucket for her to throw up in etc.). Yes you read that correctly, JOEY treated women with more respect than ROSS.
