15 Reasons Why a ‘Friends’ Reunion Without Chandler Bing Isn’t a Real Reunion, Explained in GIFs

The friends of Friends are having a reunion. But before you get all excited, it’s now been revealed that Matthew Perry is too busy in London doing a play or something to attend.

No Chanandler Bong?!?

*sigh* It’s therefore not a real Friends reunion, you know what I mean?

It’s still gonna be great (We love each and every member of the Friends cast! Don’t take us the wrong way! We just love them better as a whole group!), but in light of this travesty, here’s 15 reasons why the Friends reunion isn’t a real reunion without everyone’s favorite cynical, dog and Thanksgiving-hating, dorky but sweet jokester Chandler Bing:

1. Because, well, his TV guide gets delivered to Miss Chanandler Bong:

2. Because you can’t get through one episode of Friends without his sarcasm:

3. Because he really makes us wonder what’s going on in his head when he speaks before he thinks:

4. Because Perry and Courteney Cox are Chandler and Monica!

6. Because, at least at one point in his life, his desperation is the epitome of any New Yorker’s search for love:

7. Because he’s self-aware:

8. And relatable:

9. And self-depricating:

10. Because even though his jokes are mostly dumb, they still make us laugh:

11. And when we’re not laughing with him, we’re laughing at him:

12. Because he’s a dancer at heart:

13. Because even though Joey was always the obvious choice for a crush, Chandler was charming in his own dorky way:

14. Because he can’t handle Phoebe’s sexiness:

15. Because they’re a cast of six. SIX! Three guys and three gals. And a Chandler-less reunion makes us sad:
