Top Ten Best Friends Episodes

A list of the greatest episodes of the sitcom Friends.

The Top TenXW

1The One Where Everybody Finds Out

"Oh! My eyes! My Eyes! " Best episode, can't stop laughing!

The reactions of all of the friends is hilarious! Especially when Rachel and Phoebe try and make sure Ross doesn't find out.

I am a huge Friends fan and I love all the episodes but this is something completely different. Never have I laughed so many times in half an hour. I have never seen anything that can compare with this episode - it should have one an Emmy. Other good Friends episodes include: The One With The Lesbian Wedding (Season 2), The One With Ross's Tan (Season 10), The One With Rachel's Other Sister (Season 9), The One With All The Kissing (Season 5), The One That Could've Been (Season 6) and The One With The Boobies (Season 1).

Brilliant Episode!

2The One with the Football

All of their thanksgiving episodes are great but this one is easily the best.
It shows how competitive Monica and Ross are, Joey and Chandler fight over a girl, and Rachel jumps up and down!

When I think of Friends, I think of this episode. I love all of the Thanksgiving episodes, but this is my favourite. Incidentally, the only game of American Football I've ever watched.

Best. Episode. Ever!
I can't stop watching it, its hilarious! All the characters are really funny in this one.

Can't stop laughing when watching or even thinking about this episode!

3The One with the Embryos

Come on! Just because it's named "poorly". The quiz and the swapping of apartments? No I wanna play... Miss Chanandler Bong?... Now who has the steady hands?... The triumphant arrival of Chandler and Joey on the porcelain dog? I lost our mattresses? Classic...

What I liked about this is when Chandler and Joey both feel like champions while entering their new apartment while riding the porcelain dog... and that the porcelain dog kinda looks like it had won the apartment, too!

Play that part again and you'll see how the dog looks like.

Along with "The One Where Everybody Finds Out" this is Friends at it's funniest. "The One with the Embryos" deserves the vote though because this single episode of just 22 minutes manages to represent the show and what makes it so great.

There are such amazing lines delivered in this episode, especially from Chandler! From "His legs flail about as if independent from his body! " or "You're shooting with ALTHEA?!?...Nice shooting! "

4The One With The Ball

its just funny where chandler is shown as the DROPPER

Oh my god Monica. That is all I have to say about this show was Monica.
Ps Monica was pretty much my favorite character because of how much I identified with her

My favourite episode ever! I actually have the DVD of this episode and I watch it over and over again! Just can't get bored of it!

This is an episode that can be seen over and over again and will never get old. Classic episode right here. - lomein

5The One Where No One's Ready

The best episode! Phoebe getting "the humus", Ross almost drinking fat, Monica obsessed with a message from Richard, Rachel "catching up on her correspondents", Chandler wondering," Donald Duck never wears pants, but when he gets out of the shower, there's a towel around his waste. What's that's about? " and best of all, Joey doing the opposite of Chandler hiding his underwear. "Could I be wearing anymore clothes? Maybe if I wasn't going commando! Boy, it's hot in here.I better not do any, I don't know, LUNGES." Best episode!

This is my favorite episode of Friends! They way Joey took the seat cushion with him when he went to change. And Monica... She gets me every time.

Are you kidding me! This is the best episode hands down.. Classic sitcom.. Never leaves the room and everything happens in real time and it's so funny!

Hi I'm Chandler could I be wearing any more clothes

6The One With Unagi

This episode is outright hilarious. Now only is the plot line with Rachel, Ross, and Phoebe funny, Joey has his own amusing plot line, and Chandler and Monica do too (including Janice! ). This episode will literally have you rolling on the floor laughing! This is hands down the best episode of friends. Watch it!

Aah, salmon skin roll! I can't stop laughing crazy ass bitches!

Ah! Salmon skin roll - Rachel. CLASSIC!

This episode got me laughing so hard! I've watched all of the friends series 6 times now and this is still one of my favourite episodes!

7The One Where Rosita Dies

I love this episode. The 7th season is the best.

I love this one. Definitely one of my favorites

This is a brilliant episode. I totally agree

8The One Where It All Began
9The Last One

The great thing about this episode is that it epitomizes the thing that Friends is best at. The ability to make the audience go from hysterical laughter to unstoppable crying in just a few minutes. And I don't think many sitcoms have ever created an ending so understated, so emotional, so hilarious and so... Perfect.

I think friends is very different than the othee sitcoms especially at this episode I feel all the feelings at the same time and of course the last scene was amazing all the friends complete each other best T.V. series ever...

This particular episode is excellent. It is a perfect ending to the series. When I finished this episode there was a hollow feeling inside of me that no other television show can fill. It also leaves the audience wondering what happened to them after they went their separate ways.

Although as sad as it was watching these 6 people who we all have known and loved go there separate ways every time I watch it I somehow feel complete so thank you Ross, Rachel, phoebe, Monica, chandler and joey may you be friends for ever

10The One Where They're Up All Night

SO funny! It's great to see what all the 'friends' get up to when they can't sleep. Especially Phoebe's encounter with the smoke alarm; 'hey Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind - HEY MICKEY! ' I loved Ross's 'When you get DOWN there...', encouraging Joey to leap off the fire escape, and I know this is a little mean, but, :SPOILER ALERT: when he fell off at the end I kinda felt he got what he deserved, especially after waking that angry dog through the window!

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME! Phoebe is no doubt the best at this, especially with Ursula

Phoebe was great in this, her comments with the smoke alarm were making me laugh so hard. "Please don't be a spaceship", "How could you beeping, I disconnected you, I took out your battery. How co BEEP. Don't You Interrupt ME! "

?The One with Joey's Bag

The Contenders

11The One With the Prom Video

Should be much, much higher up this list, in my opinion. This is the episode that, in my opinion, propelled Friends from being an average sitcom to being amongst the best of the genre. It had everything from fantastic character development, to well-written romance, to the one of the funniest Chandler one-liners out of the entire ten seasons. There's no reason not to love this episode.

This one is my favorite because of the Ross and Rachel scene! They're so cute!

I think this one is just so sweet! And I love phoebe's lobster thing!

"See, he's her lobster! "

12The One With The Rumor

Funny funny and again funny! The best episode. You can laugh a lot! I even cry because the joke were so good!

"A hint of a penis." How could someone be fatter than Monica was?! How did Rachael know Ross really did make out with a 50 year old librarian.

Man this should be on top! And brad pitt's awesome! Deserves to be on the top!

13The One With The Holiday Armadillo

So many great quotable lines from that episode. Gotta love it. My favourite by far.

Funniest episode in my humble opinion. For us, Christmas isn't complete until we've seen it.

Everything about is funny. Even Armadillo walking. Every time I'm in a bad mood I watch this episode

"I'm the holiday Armadillo, your 'part-Jewish' friend. "

14The One With the Videotape

Whoever wrote the script for this episode should have won an Emmy. Outstanding work! So many great exchanges between the friends and the story of backpacking thru Europe tied it neatly together. Best lines:
Monica: You did tell an awful lot of jokes.
Chandler: I thought you liked my jokes.
Monica: (sarcastically) Joke. Joke. Joke.
Chandler: Well, maybe is was all the questions you asked. It was like flying with The Riddle.
Monica: Oh, is that another joke?
Chandler: Is that another question?

When Ross and Rachel see who came onto who which resulted in Emma being born. Ross accidentally taped their conversation and them having sex, it was so funny how Rachel used that backpacking trip story on Ross!

The intertwining story of Ken Adams, the videotape and the story is brilliant!

She came on to Ross. "How do you know about the magic story that shows you want to have sex"

15The One With the Thanksgiving Flashbacks

I love when Chandler and Ross come in with their ridiculous outfits.

This episode was hilarious and I liked how it showed fat Monica.

16The One Where Ross Is Fine

This should definitely be in the top 10 in my opinion!
It really just shows how screwed up Ross's life is!
Also the one where Rachel's dad finds out she's pregnant,
And he comes over when Mona is there, that's a brilliant one.

This episode is my number one favorite! Ross is so funny! There's so many quotes I love like
Ross You know what we should do?
Rachel Calm ourselves?
Ross No, we should eat dinner! I'LL COOK! Joey Wouldn't that be wired?
Ross No. The only thing that would be wired is if someone didn't like Mexican food, because I'm making fajitas!

I also love when Ross comes out without the oven mitts

This is the funniest episode! Should defiantly be in the top 10. Ross' reactions to evreything and his self delusional state saying that he is fine when he is clearly not, just the things he said, oh wow, I have never laughed so much!

Without doubt the funniest episode, the best is the rumor

17The One that Could Have Been

I think this explores very well the definable characteristics of each character and how they may have been exploited differently had the storyline been slightly changed. With loads of belly laughs I love this one although it has a totally dissimilar convention.

Hilarious episode! The 6th Season was the best in my opinion. But to be fair I love them all!

18The One With All the Cheesecakes

I'm just gonna sit here and eat my *smacks cheese cake on the ground* hilarious! - u_maddox_bro

19The One With the Two Parties

Oh, yeah. It was funny seeing Rachel's face when her dad yelled happy birthday sweetheart". And the ramblings and all that. This showed Monica's ability to host a boring party and took another depth into the divorce of Rachel's parents. It was actually better than the first season.

Funniest thing ever when the guys are trying to hide Rachel's parents from each other. To top it off joey kissing Rachel's mom

20The One Where Ross Got High

This was great, it NEEDS to be high. Ross and Monica are the best siblings.

I loved how Monica and Ross shouted out truthful secrets. ROSS GOT MARRIED TO RACHAEL IN VEGAS AND GOT DIVORCED AGAIN!

I was expecting this to be number 1. 'It tastes like FEET! ' 'I wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle! ' 'I got tricked into all those things! ' 'I.. I dunno, I was all hiigh! ' Gold.
