Matthew Perry does Friends trivia – The Graham Norton Show: Series 18 Episode 14 Preview – BBC One

Over the years Matthew, I like you, you were in some interview, you were talking about how… …you knew that friends would be a big hit, like quite early on there. Was there, in a specific episode, did you know? I did know that friends was gonna be a hit. I didn’t know that it was gonna be the giant hit that it was, I tell you this.
(Laughter) I know it has been successful. There was one episode where there was a blackout in New York City and I was stuck in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre that was…that we… Was she was in it?
-Yes, she was. You’d know that if you watched it.
There I was stuck in an ATM vestibule with her.
So, she was in it. (Laughter)
Being in FRIENDS? Yeah.
Oh, right. Okay. The TV show FRIENDS. (Laughter) Yes. And that show, that episode, really made me think that we were doing something special. Because I suppose, you were kind of away, that you could see the others in the apply? I could see the others in the apartment and the audience was really laughing and it just felt like the right thing. And there was a spooky thing that, when you got the script before you auditioned, I mean you… …It wasn’t like you kinda thought, I could be that guy. Yeah, well I was unavailable because I had done this terrible TV show about baggage handlers in the year 2197. So, I was off the market. So, all my friends were auditioning for the show called FRIENDS and there was this character named Chandler who was very similar to me. So, I would help them with their auditions and I finally said let me just do this for you. Just imitate what I’m doing and go in and some of them got very far and almost got the job. And then somebody finally saw the baggage handler’s show and decided that it wasn’t gonna get picked up. Then they allowed me to be on FRIENDS.
Wow. Well, in our office, I think, it has more than its fair share of FRIENDS geeks. Okay, you know the famous quiz episode when the girls lose the apartment.
Yes, I remember that episode. Okay so, what the guys wanted you to do, is to see is if you could remember the answers to the Chandler questions in the quiz. If you can’t Gemma Arterton is right on it. Do you remember this episode?
(Laughter) Miriam, no hope. So…(To audience)Only don’t shout out until Matthew can get it. But, feel free to shout out if you (Mathew) could not get it. Okay, sure the pressure is on. Okay, okay…here we go. According to Chandler, what phenomenon scares the bejesus out of him? Oh, that’s Michael Flatley “Lord of the Dance”. You are correct. Yes, well done. Okay.
(Applause) What is the name of Chandler’s father’s all-male burlesque? Actually know that too- that’s “Viva, Las Gay-gas”. (Laughter & applause) You’ll definitely know this one.
You’ll definitely know this one. Every week the TV Guide comes to Chandler and Joey’s apartment… What name appears on the address label? Mrs. Chamandler Bong. Yes, very good. (Laughter and applause) The last one, the last one… is what, because this is the famous thing that no one… …although Chandler was the only one with a kind of a proper job, right, throughout the series. It was never kind of talked about what he actually did, right? That’s right. It was in computers. Something in computers. So, shall we see if anyone in the audience knows this before do you? Do you know it?
I’m…I’m not sure. So… Does anyone know, what is Chandler’s job? (Laughter) Oh, there’s a hand. A hand back up there… see. Wait, wait, there’s got to be a microphone coming to you, one second. What do you think job was? Transponster goods Rachel.
– No. I guess… ,no there’s a lady in the back, lady the back. We’re having to get a very strange angle… We we’ve never spoken to anyone the back row before. Yes? Statistical data reconfiguration. Oh, you’re so close. You’re so close. That’s what it actually is. Statistical analysis and data reconfiguration. She”s so close. Well done that lady, very well. (Applause)
