One of the best-loved stars of one of the most popular television sitcoms in history, Matthew Perry would forever be associated with his character Chandler Bing from the ensemble comedy "Friends" (1994-2004). This master of double-takes and sardonic wit enjoyed a coveted spot on NBC's Thursday night lineup prior to defying youth and remaining forever "twenty-something" in endless reruns around the world. While Perry maintained a huge fan following, his ensuing movie career proved hit-or-miss, with his biggest successes coming in the form of broad comedies "The Whole Nine Yards" (2000) and "17 Again" (2009). When given the opportunity to showcase some versatility post-"Friends," Perry fared well with a guest stint on "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) which inevitably led to a lead role in the short-lived series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" (NBC, 2006-07) - both of which showcased his considerable dramatic chops. However, due in large part to creating one of the most iconic characters in sitcom history, audiences were, not surprisingly, most responsive when he stuck close to the wisecracking persona that earned him his initial fame.

QUOTES FROM Matthew Perry CHARACTERS

Joe Tyler says: I'd like to introduce you two. This is the man who ran you over. And this is the man that you ran over.

Pratt says: Bidwell? Bidwell! I fear the bear has killed Mr. Bidwell sir! He's failed to communicate with the me, by way of his ear...

Leslie Edwards says: It doesn't work that way, it doesn't work anyway! But even if it did, he couldn't talk through it!

Pratt says: Sh... Bigwell?

Leslie Edwards says: Nevermind.

Bidwell says: Help me!

Leslie Edwards says: Bidwell!

Bidwell says: Sir, sir. I've been to hell and back!

Leslie Edwards says: Yes, I can see that!

Bidwell says: I suspect that now you'll want to lead a hunting party, to slay that terrible beast!

Leslie Edwards says: Well, yes, that thought did cross my mind. Briefly. But now I have a better idea.

Bidwell says: Yes sir?

Leslie Edwards says: I shall fashion for you the finest wooden leg you have ever seen!

Bidwell says: Oh, but what about the bear?

Leslie Edwards says: Rest assured, Bidwell, in twenty years or so, the ravishes of old age will deal with the bear, far more cruelly than we ever could have.

Guy Fontenot says: Revenge is sweet sir!

Higgins says: This particular event happened last summer on my uncle's farm in Virginia. My brother and I had just finished cutting a field of hay and were enjoying the evening meal under the shade of an elm tree. He went down for water by the creek and when he was gone, I took a bowl that was filled with delicious plum pudding and placed into it, not one, but two large pieces of sheep shit. When he returned I encouraged him to taste the plum pudding... And as sure as Im standing before you, he did! He ate it all. Shit Pudding!

Leslie Edwards says: You got your brother to eat sheep dung. That is a very interesting story.

Bartholomew Hunt says: Tell him the ending, that's the best part.

Higgins says: Oh yeah. To be perfectly honest with you sir, I have no brother. It was me. I ate sheep shit! Swear to God.

Leslie Edwards says: Clever twist there on the ending.

Peter Steinberg says: Oscar, about Amy... u know there is plenty of fish in the sea, right?

Peter Steinberg says: You do know there are other fish in the sea?

Oscar Novak says: Yeah, i used to think like that. but what if u find "the" fish?

Oscar Novak says: But what if you found *the* fish?

Oscar Novak says: I'm not an object! What happened with getting to know each other first!!!?

Oscar Novak says: I'm not an object! What happened with getting to know each other first?

Alex Whitman says: You are everything I never knew I always wanted.
