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

I've been watching Friends' re-runs on Netflix (no cable) and have been looking forward to this episode. It's my favorite of all episodes. Love the seduction teasing game between Chandler and Phoebe! Also, as others have mentioned, love the "Oh! My eyes! My Eyes! " First time it aired, we were talking and laughing about it the next day at work. Our boss made the decision then to check out the series for himself.
2 of my favorite characters even before this episode have always been Chandler for his wit and Phoebe for her quirkiness.

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).

This truly is one of my favourite episodes of the whole show! And the season too.. Obviously! Phoebe stole the cake with her flirting and Butt pinching laugh out loud (which were nothing but funny and nowhere near sexy, ! ), the way Phoebe and Rachel plan to subdue Chandler and Monica! Wow! Hats off to the writing!

Hilarious especially "My sister and my bestfriend sleeping together" laugh out loud amazing! Also the "My Eyes" part is also funny, as well as when they all jump around to distract ross from the fact that monica and chandler are kissing... laugh out loud best episoder ever!

2 The One with the Embryos

Yea this one always ranks high. Along with they all find out, no-one's ready, prom video, football. They all involve the whole group which makes them special. I also like the one with the jellyfish. Ross reading 18 pages front and back and then the fight with Rachel. So funny. It's just the best sitcom there will ever be

I still laugh at this even though I've seen it countless times and know every single line, but I'll never forget how much I laughed the very first time I saw it. Absolutely brilliant and most hilarious episode ever! No contest! (No pun intended!) ROFLMAO from beginning to end. Rachel: "WHAT is that NOISE?" Chandler: 'You!"

"Why doesn't she get drunk...that worked for a bunch of girls in my high school."

"Actually, it's Miss Chanandeler Bong"

"He's a transponster!" "That's not even a word!" Monica's scream. Rachel sprawled on the couch with the towel on her forehead, Phoebe sitting upside down, Monica walks in p**ed off: "I lost our mattresses"

The characters' reactions when a question about them got answered correctly (Joey about his space cowboy, Chandler about his dad's Viva Las Gagas, Rachel about her real favorite movie, etc. Not only are the questions and answers hilarious, but the ...more

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.

Definitely the best episode, I can't stop laughing. Best line: He's a transponster! This is proof that Friends is the best show of all time! There are some other good episodes, such as The One with the Prom Video, The One Where Everybody Finds Out, The One Where No One's Ready etc. but this is the best.

3 The One with the Football

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.

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!

I just love it when they play. The trash talking, Chandlers pathetically funny dance n ross n monicas competitiveness.. It just cracks me up watching Chandler say "The important thing is The Dutch Girl Picked Me"

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

5 The One With The Ball

Monica is classic Monica in this! And the comments about the cat are hilarious. "Why is it inside out?" "What am I gonna call her? Fluffy?" "It's not a cat!" "Oh, the oven mitts freaked me out." "So what is this...some sort of snake?"

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

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!

6 The Last One

Such a great finale, sucks everything ended here. It was nice to see Rachel and Ross back together for good after the on and off relationship they had following that breakup, but I would've liked to see them back together for a little bit before the show ended, but I know why they did it for the finale. It was sad and wasn't the funniest episode, but this was definitely a good episode and one of the biggest finales in T.V. history.

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.

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.

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...

7 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.

Another strong contender to reach the top 5 Best F.R.I.E.N.D. S episodes! This was the bast thanksgiving episode of the show! A famous quote goes:
Joey:! Some Girl Ate Monica!
Monica: Relax, the camera adds like ten pounds!
Chandler: Huh.. So exactly how many cameras were on you?

Simply classic, it will never get old!

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!

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

8 The 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!

This is an hilarious episode. I have a friends who has also seen every episode of friends so whenever we try to scare the other and it doesn't work we say "Unagi".

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!

The final scene, when ross runs from the girls and sees Phoebe & Rachel in Central Perk... God his face was just HILARIOUS

9 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!

You need to get your credibility correct! first episodes name was "The one where Monica gets a roomate"

10 The One With The Rumor

"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.

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

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

Excellent! The best episode ever!

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!

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! "

I've watched this episode over and over and each time I couldn't stop laughing. Definitely the best episode. Espicially scenes between Joey and Ross are awesome

Phoebe and the smoke alarm is hilarious. "Don't interrupt me!"

12 The One Where Ross Got High

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.

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

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!

13 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!

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

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

14 The One With The Holiday Armadillo

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

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. "

15 The One With All the Cheesecakes

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

16 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

17 The One Where Ross Is Fine

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 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 should be number one! Ross is so funny in this episode! I love how he is all drunk! His love speech is great!
There's so many great quotes in this one,
"MY FAJITAS" -Ross
"That's gonna hurt tomorrow! " -Ross
"I'LL COOK" -Ross

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!

18 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.

Oh Monica. I love you!

19 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!

Cool to see what could have been lol

Carol was hot!

20 The One With Monica's Boots

Phoebe's story in this episode is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

"Whoever made these boots hates feet and wants to see them die! "

21 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

This one is one of my favorites!

22 The One with the Late Thanksgiving

Has to be one of top ten best episodes in my opinion

All the scenes in front of the door are hilarious..

Joey's eye thing is great. 0_0

ONE OF THE BEST THANKSGIVING EPISODES.

23 The One with the Blackout

So funny I laughed so much when the cat jumps on Ross! Also when Chandler is stuck in the room with the model.

For me, this is the funniest episode of all time. How could it NOT be on the list?

One of Chandler's finest episodes, his inner monologue is amazing!

Love the part when Joey answers chandler in the same grunt!

24 The One Where Ross Finds Out

Love this episod. Ross's reaction to finding out rachels pregnant and it's his baby is amazing. Always make me laugh.

Condoms only work 97% of the time. "THEY SHOULD PUT THAT ON THE BOX! " "They do." "They should put it in HUGE BLOCKED letters".

25 The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break

All around episode... Comedy and sadness. Every cast member participated and the trail plot epic.

The episode that sparked the classic meme.

This is the classic episode... It's the basis for anytime Ross and Rachel's relationship has problems! WE WERE ON A BREAK! Laugh out loud

Everyone always thinks this is the episode with the huge fight about the break, but this is the episode before that, the one the morning after is that episode
