Monica Geller and Chandler Bing are one of our favorite couples in TV history, hands down. The Friends lovebirds have had a lot of ups and downs over the show's 10 seasons. We saw their relationship go from platonic to overtly flirtatious, from top secret to common knowledge, and from long-term to lawfully forever. But the chemistry was there from day one.
Monica and Chandler are an odd couple in a lot of ways, which makes for amusing clashes and hilarious banter. But their relationship could be emotionally compelling, too. We watched them grapple with the same serious issues that real-world couples have — infertility, adoption, and prioritizing one spouse's career over the other. In short, we love Monica and Chandler a lot. But we forgot about a lot of our favorite scenes and subplots starring the duo. So, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their wedding episode (the season 7 finale), here are 24 of Monica and Chandler's greatest moments.

This priceless flashback scene to the day after they spent the night together — and Monica's planning a date with someone else. Seeing Chandler play down his feels is painfully adorable.

"You are one of my favorite people. And the most beautiful woman I've ever known in real life." It seems like a great moment for a first kiss...yet somehow, they manage to defuse the sexual chemistry and just remain really, really good friends — for now.

Remember the time they got naked under the covers together and were super-impressed with what they saw? Chandler: "Well, it's safe to say our friendship is effectively ruined." Yay!

When Chandler makes bragging about his sexual prowess seem super-sweet ("If I'm the best, it's only because you made me the best.") and they both decide their chemistry in bed means they "owe it to sex" to do it again.

When Monica goes to great and salmonella-risking lengths to earn Chandler's forgiveness...and he accidentally says "I love you."
