The Top Ten

Chandler Bing
There are 2 particular quotes that keep playing in my mind;
Joey drilling holes in the wall as he's building a new entertainment unit and the camera goes to the other side of the wall where Chandler nodded off and the drill bit is spinning rapidly going backwards and forwards in front of Chandlers face which wakes him up, scaring the hell out of him and rushes out the room slamming the door looking at Joey in annoyment and Joey looks to him and says;
'Oh sorry man, did I get you? '
'NO You didn't get me... It's an electric drill... You GET Me You KILL ME! '

The other one I also loved is when the scene shows Chandler sleeping, and you see Jimmy (His crazy rebound room mate) sitting watching him which scares the hell out of Chandler when he realizes he's there, about 30 seconds into them talking Chandler says;
'Hannibal Lecter... Better room mate than you'

These 2 quotes specially made me actually snort when laughing.

And to finish this comment off, few last great quotes;
Monica - 'Honey, Cover it up with the boat'
Chandler - 'It's not an aircraft carrier'

-Ross walks in the Coffee house alone-
Ross - 'Hey, Just picked up Ben from school'
-Looks around the area in a circle-
Chandler - 'Well I don't think you did a very thorough job! '

Monica - 'What I don't think you understand is... For us, Kissing is as important as any part of it. '
Joey - -Laughing a little- 'Yeah, Right... '
Joey - -Begins to look surprised- 'Y'serious? '
Phoebe - 'Oh yeah! '
Rachel - 'Everything you need to know is in that first kiss'
Monica - 'Absolutely'
Chandler - 'Yeah I think for us, Kissing is pretty much like an opening act.. You know, it's like a stand up comedian that you have to SIT through before... Pink Floyd comes out'
Ross - 'Yeah, And-and-and it's not that we don't Like the comedian, it's just that that's... That's not why we bought the ticket. '
Chandler - 'The problem is though, after the concerts over no matter how great the show was, you girls are always looking for the comedian again, y'know? I mean were in the car, were fighting traffic... Basically just trying to stay awake. '
He is definitely the funniest friends character. The best one is when Joey offers them some chicken and while Monica's head is under the water he describes what he wants. A three piece meal, some beans, and a coke... AH, Diet coke!
He is a wonderfully warm and funny character. He is the guy one would really want as a friend. the only guy in friends who is actually funny and does not rely on situations

2Joey Tribbiani
His "How you doing? ", his stupidities, his innocent nature, so good at heart... N just so simply funny... I love joey!
I don't have much idea about acting, as I am not an actor like Joey... ^_~... But each and every word came out of his mouth was fun in itself... According to me, I see him as a world's best actor... Not to forget how innocent and kiddish he is, goes from hard time understanding things and his Maths sucks... :P... And always ready to do anything for his friends, the way he got over Ursula because of Phoebe... I have all the seasons, and I have loved his acting in each and every episode... No one in the world could play Joey Tribbiani better than Matt Leblanc...
All I can say is - "How you doin'? "!

3Ross Geller
Ross needs to be number one seriously. This is the best show ever and he is the greatest thing about it. His tan, his roller skates, everything about him is hilarious. "I'm fine" " we were on a break" " Oh my God, you know what, I think you're right! I think, you know what, listen, listen... a pigeon... no, no, wait, an eagle flew in, landed on the stove, and caught fire! The baby, seeing this, jumps across the apartment to the mighty bird's aid! The eagle, however, misconstrues this as an act of aggression, and grabs the baby in it's talon! Meanwhile, the faucet fills the apartment with water! Baby and bird, still ablaze, are locked in a death-grip, swirling around the whirlpool that fills the apartment" sorry if I didn't mention your fave quote
Simply brilliant, Ross is very clumsy and shy but is deep down very good friend and therefor very good person. Amazing character!
Ross is simply brilliant. His "Pivot" scene is one of the best and the dialogue for his character is perfect. Without a doubt the best character in the show.

4Phoebe Buffay
She is the funniset person I have ever seen on TV. I love it when ross is on the bagpipes and she starts going e! its hilarious!
"I love all of the "Friends" about equally but, Phoebe has to be my favorite. She is by far the funniest one, to me. She's so weird and endearing, it's hard not to love her. Her best scenes are: When she sees Monica and Chandler doing it, trying to get Sting tickets, "This is madness, Monica", When she sings with her cold... And so many more
Phoebe is one the best Friends character. After completing this series no one can forget get. She believes in what she thinks. She won't mind about others. Most of the time her activities would be childish but matured than others some time.

5Monica Geller
Though strict and bossy, she is the one who keeps the group together.

Best female character - by a mile


At first I didn't like her so much, but now I have appreciated her passion, her fighting spirit and how much she loves her friends.

6Rachel Green
Rachel is my favourite character because she really develops over the course of the show. She starts out as a spoiled and somewhat vain little girl, and becomes a considerate, strong and intelligent woman by the end of the show.
She is the best friend in the series because of her caring attitude, and though she can let fashion get ahead of her, she eventually wizens up to what really matters.
I love rachel so much she develops the most out of all the characters and is honestly caring she is a very funny character and her relationship with Ross is nice but funny love you rach!

Lol, he has loved rachel for years.

I love his crush on rachel!

9Janice Litman Garelnick
People find her annoying, but she doesn't mean to be. She is sweet and caring, and she always tries her best. She's actually very complex for a supporting role.
I love the Chandler/Janice storyline!
I'm from New Jersey so I can relate!

10Richard Burke
Richard was delicious! No wonder Monica had a hard time getting over him!
