Matthew Perry is enjoying taking trips down memory lane lately.

After gushing to Jimmy Kimmel about that time he beat up Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (relax, it was in fifth grade), the Friends star reflected on his favourite one-liner as Chandler Bing during a recent appearance on Good Morning America.

When the GMA hosts asked him to pick his favourite quip from the long-running show, Perry chose a scene from a Season 2 episode, titled The One With Ross’ New Girlfriend.

After Chandler mentions that he needs new pants, Joey (Matt LeBlanc) mentions he should visit his family’s tailor.

“You should go see Frankie, my family’s been going to him forever,” Joey says. “He did my first suit when I was 15 … No, wait, 16. No, excuse me, 15. When was 1990?”

At this, Chandler leans over to where Joey is sitting on the couch and quips, “OK, you have to stop the Q-tip when there’s resistance!”

Perry plays Ted Kennedy in the upcoming miniseries, The Kennedys: After Camelot, and he managed to get laughs on the otherwise serious set.

“We were shooting the scene where Bobby Kennedy had just been shot and the whole Kennedy family is around, and I think it was a scene that Katie Holmes was directing, and she was also in the scene, and everybody was very serious, and it was about whether to turn off Bobby Kennedy’s life support system,” Perry recalled.

“We were all there, and everyone is so serious, and I just turned and said, ‘You all know this isn’t actually happening, right?’”
