The Top Ten

The 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).
[Newest]Most hilarious episode ever!

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!
Best. Episode. Ever!
I can't stop watching it, its hilarious! All the characters are really funny in this one.
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.
[Newest]This one is my favorite friends episode ever

3The 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!
[Newest]This is an episode that can be seen over and over again and will never get old. Classic episode right here.


4The 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.
It's the best best best episode ever. From the starting till the ending. have watched it like a hundred times and I still can't stop laughing.
[Newest]Why did ross make it unfair for the girls, none of them knows Chandler's job!

5The One Where No One's Ready
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 its so funny!
How is this episode not higher on the list? Most clever friends episode ever... All the stories in parallel and in real time, all the best parts of the characters shining through in this one!
[Newest]"Donald Duck never wore pants but whenever he gets out of the shower he has a towel around his waist, I mean whats that about? " Haha Chandler!

6The One With Unagi
Aah, salmon skin roll! I can't stop laughing crazy ass bitches!
Ah! Salmon skin roll - Rachel. CLASSIC!
The final scene, when ross runs from the girls and sees Phoebe & Rachel in Central Perk... God his face was just HILARIOUS
[Newest]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.

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.
[Newest]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!
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! "
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME! Phoebe is no doubt the best at this, especially with Ursula

The Contenders

11The 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.
"I'm the holiday Armadillo, your 'part-jewish' friend. "

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!
[Newest]Excellent! The best episode ever!

13The 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.
"Do a little Dance... Make a little love... Pretty much get down tonight.. " - Chandler
"The camera adds 10 pounds!.. " -Monica -> "So how many cameras are on you? " - Chandler

No.25? Not done! This is the best episode of season 2, I feel! There is something inexplicably sweet and classy about this one, that raised the bar wee bit higher for F.R.I.E.N.D. S! Of course, Rachel is Ross' lobster and vice versa (you were right Phoebe! ) This one should be in the top 10!

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!
[Newest]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 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!
This episode didn't even need more jokes than Ross saying "I'm fine and then making a huge fool of himself.
[Newest]Ross's mental state and the side story with Chandler telling the kid he is adopted, Brilliant!

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!


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
Very entertaining, emotional, funny episode

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.
