How Matthew Perry got the last laugh on ‘Friends’

Could Matthew Perry’s memoir be spilling any more dirt? 

Perry, 53, has revealed that his notoriously mouthy character Chandler Bing was able to have the last line on “Friends” because he specifically requested it.

In his book, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” which was published Nov. 1, Perry writes, “Before that final episode, I’d taken [co-creator] Marta Kauffman to one side. ‘Nobody else will care about this except me,’ I said. ‘So, may I please have the last line?’ That’s why as we all troop out of the apartment, and Rachel has suggested one last coffee, I got to bring the curtain down on ‘Friends.’ “

The series finale of “Friends,” which aired in May 2004 and is called “The Last One,” wraps up with Chandler and Monica (Courteney Cox) clearing out their apartment and moving to the suburbs — marking the end of an era, when the six friends all lived in close proximity in Manhattan. 

When Rachel asks them if they need to head out right away or still have time to grab coffee, Chandler says, “Sure,” before sarcastically adding, “Where?”

The joke, of course, is that the friends only ever hung out at the famous “Friends” coffee shop, Central Perk. 

“I love the look on [David] Schwimmer’s face as I deliver that line — it’s the perfect mixture of affection and amusement, exactly what the show ‘Friends’ had always given to the world,” Perry writes in his book. He further says that Jennifer Aniston and Matt LeBlanc wept afterward, while he “felt nothing,” but “sat in the [studio] lot for a moment and thought about the previous 10 years.”

This is just the latest in a string of explosive revelations from his book. Perry also questions why beloved star Keanu Reeves is still alive, reveals that he begged the producers to stop writing Chandler’s lines with the cadence of “Could this be any more…” and divulges that he suffered from sex shame due to impotence.

He also admits that his “Friends” co-stars confronted him about his struggle with alcohol addiction.
