** Chandler is a repressed bisexual, many characters have stated that he has a (gay) 'quality' to him, and Chandler often tends to get overly defensive whenever his sexuality is brought up. It is possible he was written as a character who may have latent homosexual desires, but was terrified to ever admit to them because of the depraved actions of his father scarring him since childhood.
*** There's also some evidence Joey may have been written to be secretly bisexual but only dates women due to his career (which could be very detrimental to an actor in the 90's). This included telling Chandler quite openly that he had 'no problem with the gay thing' (when he assumed Chandler was gay), seeming rather sexually relaxed in general, and when interviewed for a Soap Magazine about being homosexual, Joey considers the questions for quite longer than one normally should (due to said episode being a ClipShow) before finally rather defensively claiming he's straight.

** Yu Mizushima is the voiceover for Chandler, who is also known for playing Wakko from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animainiacs}}''. When that show parodied Friends, Jess Harnell (Wakko) plays Chandler in that parody!

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Creator/RobinWilliams and Billy Crystal's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTmxZ54ICtQ guest appearance]] at the beginning of the episode "TheOneWith the Ultimate Fighting Champion" has no relevance to the plot and is never mentioned again. It wasn't even in the original script, they coincidentally just happened to be in the same building where the show was filmed and the writers asked if they wanted to make a guest appearance.

* BrokenBase: Did Ross sleeping with the copy girl after Rachel told him they needed "to take a break from us" count as cheating? And what does "on a break" mean, for that matter?

* FairForItsDay: [[ItWasHisSled Chandler's Dad is played by a woman]]. It's not really clear whether Chandler's Dad is supposed to be a drag queen, a male crossdresser, or a transgender woman. At the time the show was written, all of these things were seen as one and the same. With hindsight, however, this can seem a bit awkward to the modern viewer now that transgender people are better understood and more accepted.

** Try to find any fan of the show who actually liked Mark. Though Ross and Rachel is somewhat a BrokenBase, fans were relieved when Rachel and MArk never got together.

** 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. Conversely, 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, Chandler's desire to stay away from his father as an adult is completely understandable.

** The utterly stupid and pointless "Identical Hand Twin" subplot from "The One In Vegas". Even for Joey, it was idiotic.
