How I Met Your Mother Or Friends Quiz: Who Said It - Barney Stinson Or Chandler Bing?

You're a comedy expert if you can get 100% on this Friends/How I Met Your Mother crossover!

Friends Quiz

They're the comedy clowns of two iconic sitcoms and both have showered us with laughs over the years.

On paper, Barney Stinson and Chandler Bing are two very different characters. On the one hand you've got Barney, the legen - wait for it - dary, suited and booted ball of awesomeness among the How I Met Your Mother crew, whose escapades with women have both humoured and shocked us over the show's nine seasons.

On the other hand you've got Chandler, the naïve, laughable with women but good-hearted goofball, who unwittingly keeps the Friends group entertained over ten seasons with his hilarious mannerisms and wit. As a result, both characters have proved to be exceptionally popular with fandoms over the years, even when the shows themselves showed weaker moments.

And yet, despite their differences in humour, there are similarities between the two. Both were brought up in broken homes, both use comedy as a defence mechanism, and both rely on their friends in their more challenging moments to help.

So, how well do you know Barney and Chandler? Could you tell who said what from one quote to the next? If you could, you'd be a real expert on the pair!
