** Charles Bing/[[StageNames Helena Handbasket]] is actually a {{Transsexual}} or at least a full-time cross-dresser as opposed to being just a [[DragQueens Drag Queen]]. Whenever Charles/Helena is brought up, he is always referred to as being in full drag even when he is not performing, such as when he came dressed as Creator/CarmenMiranda for Chandler's grade school swim meet, or when he attends Chandler's wedding in full drag. This seems to identify a person who is more comfortable in portraying themselves as a full-time woman as opposed to a gay man who wears drag sometimes for work or fun.

** 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.

** Monica: Charmingly quirky Woobie thanks to her status as TheUnfavorite and supportive TeamMom, or militant ControlFreak who runs roughshod over her friends and treats her boyfriend/husband so bad it borders on emotional abuse.
** Ross: A sympathetic, relatable, {{Adorkable}} and hilarious ButtMonkey, or a pedantic know-it-all loser, who [[NeverMyFault refuses to take responsibility]] for his actions, and should just shut up and stop whining, and get over his unhealthy obsession with Rachel.

*** Although this happened in a different episode, not the one with embarassing stories. In that episode there was Ross' "number two" accident on a roller coaster after eating too much tacos vs Chandler kissing a guy.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Thanks to ValuesDissonance and the growing acceptance of the [=LGBT=] community, Chandler's father Charles receives a lot of sympathy from modern audiences and 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.) is 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?

* AbandonShipping: Richard/Monica and Chandler/Kathy were pretty popular, but vanished almost the minute Monica popped up from under Chandler's covers and the entire fandom jumped on the Chandler/Monica ship, which sailed strongly into the end of the series.

** In the episode where the guys play "[[{{Calvinball}} Bamboozled]]", Chandler ''Bing'' loses after drawing a ''Google'' card. That's right, for once, Website/{{Google}} ruined [[Microsoft Bing]].
