Matthew Perry had special request that no one else cared about for Friends finale episode

Matthew Perry had special request that no one else cared about for Friends finale episode

The actor who played Chandler had a plan in mind for the last episode of the beloved series

The last-ever episode of Friends is one that viewers will never forget, but there's one part of the finale that Matthew Perry claimed none of his cast-members cared about.

Except him, that is.

The beloved actor, who passed away at the age of 54 on 28 October, appeared for the last time in the long-running comedy alongside his co-stars on 6 May, 2004.

The episode is the last of a two-parter, and successfully wraps up of all the friends' stories.

It establishes that Ross and Rachel are officially over their break, welcomes two new little Bings into the world, and officially bids goodbye to Monica's New York apartment.

It's been almost 20 years since the episode aired, but it was only in his memoir last year that Perry revealed he had a special request for the writers in the final episode of the show.

Writing in Friends, Lovers and The Big Terrible Thing, Perry explained how he asked co-creator Marta Kauffman to give him the final line of the series.

The Friends characters pack up Monica's apartment in the finale.

“No one else will care about this except me,” Perry recalled telling Kauffman. "So may I please have the last line?"

After 10 years of working together, Kauffman obliged.

The final scenes of the episode show Monica and Chandler getting all packed up, before making their way out into the corridor with their friends.

Rachel asks if they have a bit of time to spare before making their way to their new home, saying: "Shall we get some coffee?"

She's obviously alluding to a trip to the Coffee House where they've spent so many hours, but it's this question that opens Perry up to the final line of the show.

In true Chandler fashion, it's a joke, as he quips: "Where?"

Perry claimed no one else would care about the final line.

Perry said in his memoir that he 'got to bring the curtain down on Friends'.

"I love the look on 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," he wrote.

In the wake of Perry's death, Kauffman reflected on the last conversation she and Friends co-creator David Crane had with the actor before he passed away.

"He was great. He was happy and chipper, he didn't seem weighed down by anything," she said in an interview with the TODAY's Hoda Kotb.

"He was in a really good place which is why this seems so unfair."

Perry was found unresponsive in the hot tub of his home in Los Angeles. His cause of death has not yet been made public.
