Friends superfans are hotly divided on many topics, from the touchy subject of Ross and Rachel's 'break' to whether Emily's reaction to that awkward wedding slip-up was reasonable.
But going by a recent viral Twitter thread, there's one view that's shared by more Friends obsessives than you might think: namely, that Chandler and Janice should have ended up together.
Yep, if you're Team Monica, look away now, because there's a school of thought that Janice "OH.MY.GOD" Litman-Goralnik, played famously by Maggie Wheeler, was in fact the right woman for Mr Bing.
As any Friends fan will know, Janice was Chandler's big-haired and big-mouthed on-off girlfriend, and a key character in the hit series.
In many ways, she was the 'seventh friend', appearing in seasons 1-10 and getting a significant dose of character development.
Poor Janice got a raw deal, with her loud and occasionally crass ways frequently making her the butt of the group's jokes.
But she was also sweet-natured, funny and kind - and there's no denying that Chandler approached their relationship with, well, more than a little immaturity.
As we all know, Chandler ended up falling head-over-heels in love with big-hearted cleaning obsessive Monica "it's the humidity!" Geller.
However, it's now apparent that some fans haven't quite let go of the Janice and Chandler dream - and they feel pretty passionately about it, too.
When writer and Twitter user Sarah Gibbs (@sara_rose_g) tweeted the simple question: "What's your most controversial Friends opinion?" she received a tidal wave of comments and over 3.4K likes.
What's your most controversial Friends opinion? Mine is that Emily was 100% in the right.

Among the responses, an occurring theme emerged.
"Janice was a better match for Chandler than Monica," declared one Janice devotee.
Another agreed: "Chandler and Janice were perfect for each other but it wasn't to be... #Friends."
"Chandler and Janice were soulmates!" gushed a third.
Others commented that Janice was in fact "too good" for Chandler.
"Janice and Chandler would've been a great couple of Chandler wasn't so immature," argued one.

"Janice was beautiful and a lovely person and far too good for Chandler," chimed in another.
Meanwhile, another commentator wrote: "Janice wasn't as awful as they made out. She was kind, caring, sweet and really loved Chandler, sure she was a bit OTT but didn't deserve to be hate and made fun of the way she was by the group."
Janice and Chandler: the great love story that never was.
