Friends superfans are hotly divided on many topics, from the touchy subject of Ross and Rachel’s ‘break’ to whether Emily’s reaction to that awkward wedding slip-up was reasonable.
But going by a recent viral Twitter thread, there’s one view that’s shared by more Friends obsessives than you might think: namely, that Chandler and Janice should have ended up together.
Yep, if you’re Team Monica, look away now, because there’s a school of thought that Janice “OH.MY.GOD” Litman-Goralnik, played famously by Maggie Wheeler, was in fact the right woman for Mr Bing
As any Friends fan will know, Janice was Chandler’s big-haired and big-mouthed on-off girlfriend, and a key character in the hit series.
In many ways, she was the ‘seventh friend’, appearing in seasons 1-10 and getting a significant dose of character development.
Poor Janice got a raw deal, with her loud and occasionally crass ways frequently making her the butt of the group’s jokes.
But she was also sweet-natured, funny, and kind – and there’s no denying that Chandler approached their relationship with, well, more than a little immaturity.
As we all know, Chandler ended up falling head-over-heels in love with big-hearted cleaning obsessive Monica “it’s the humidity!” Geller.
However, it’s now apparent that some fans haven’t quite let go of the Janice and Chandler dream – and they feel pretty passionately about it, too.
