Top Ten Best Friends Episodes

A list of the greatest episodes of the sitcom Friends.

The Top Ten

1 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).

If you think any other episode out of this list is better thanks this one then you are stupid buttholes that don't know humor.

2 The 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.

My favorite thanksgiving episode because it has so many funny one liners and moments, its main focus is of course the game of football they decide to play but it's not boring at all even though it's focused on just this one thing, it's a very entertaining episode and I always love to see Ross and Monica fighting.

Only American Football game I've ever watched

3 The 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.

I love this episode. It should be named The One with the Quiz Game or something like that. Other than that it's the greatest friends episode ever! I love when Chandler says "His legs flail about as if independent from his body! " Classic!

Lots of questions bolted answers until what is chandler bings job......A a a a transposter THAT'S NOT EVEN A WORD!

4 The 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!

The way this is the cheapest episode with the simplest storyline yet is one of the best

5 The One With The Ball

its just funny where chandler is shown as the DROPPER

It was such a fun episode, especially because they were all so dedicated in not dropping the ball and then Phoebe comes in and she simply puts it on the table haha. Plus, Rachel buys this creepy naked cat and everyone makes HILARIOUS remarks about it (Joey: This is not a cat!, Ross: Why is it upside down? )

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

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

6 The One With Unagi

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

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!

Ah! Salmon skin roll - Rachel. CLASSIC!

This episode is hilarious, especially if you love Ross you will love this episode.

7 The One Where It All Began

I just need a girl I can marry
Rachel walks in in a wedding dress
Chandler - I just need a million dollars!

8 The 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

9 The 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...

I cried a river.

Sad episode - Demogorgan

10 The 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!

The Contenders

11 The 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! "

12 The 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

Ill just go and talk with santa and the armadillo in the kitchen. There's a sentence I never thought I would say

13 The 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!

Excellent! The best episode ever!

14 The 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!

My fajitas!

15 The 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"

16 The 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.

17 The 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!

19 The 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

It is so crazy. I died by lughing

20 The One Where Ross Got High

When Ross and Monica blamed eachother for what they did in their past while their parents watched - Catacorn

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

No.2 for me after the one with the armadillo, too funny!
