The funniest sitcom, “Friends,” was released on 22 September 1994 and changed the industry after that. Just like Chandler says, ‘Could it BE more entertaining.’ After ten years, the series officially ended on 6 May 2004, but it seems the audience is not over with it till now. Be it the audience born in the 90s or the 20s. Friends are still the daily dose of stress buster for everyone. A day without watching a Friend’s episode is dull, Right? We know! We all secretly wish for a group of friends just like they have. We will show all the seasons of friends to our children and say with pride, ‘This is how my favorite sitcom feels like.’
All the six friends have made us feel each shade of emotion, but the most are laughter. No matter how good music we listen to, the true solace lies in “Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, What are they feeding you!” That coffee shop, Monica’s apartment, Estelle’s office, and Ross’s museum are part of our lives too. Remember when Rachel suggested having coffee and Chandler asked, ‘where?’ you cried for two days straight. We have watched the entire series numerous times, but the ending still makes us cry like a baby. All the episodes in each season are classic, but we still find something better in one episode than the other. So let’s look at the most entertaining episodes of friends with unique places in our hearts.
10. The One Where Ross Finds Out (Season 2, Episode 7)
Ross has a girlfriend called Julie, and he is finally over Rachel (at least that is what he thinks). And there he listens to Rachel’s audio, ‘I am over you, ‘ which changes everything between them. This episode marks the start of their intense love story. This is the episode where they kissed! Ross finally getting the attention and love from his school-time crush is what we wish to have in our lives. Rachel’s confession put Ross into a dilemma to choose between his current girlfriend Julie and ‘Rachem.’ Oh! Sorry for the typographical error; that’s Rachel. (If you know, you know)
9. The One With Monica And Chandler’s Wedding: Part 2 (Season 7, Episode 24)
Chandler was running away from the wedding. No kidding, but we all expected him to do it. Monica and Chandler are the couples we all were pitching from the moment they started their romance. Wedding episodes are always special, but their wedding became extra special because it is Monica’s wedding. It was THE day. She had been preparing for this day from her childhood. Chandler not coming made us all nervous. However, finally, the love wins, and Chandler not only reaches but brings small baby clothes to show that he is ready.
8. The One Where No One’s Ready (Season 3, Episode 2)
Only the Friend’s episodes have the potential to be about nothing and still be enjoyable. They all have to get to one of Ross’s boring events, and getting ready seems like an impossible job. Well, they all have their reasons. Chandler and Joey are deciding who is the best between them; Monica is still not over Richard and wants to contact him, Rachel cannot find the perfect outfit to go to her boyfriend’s event, and Phoebee, well, she is just being herself. All the conflicts created the excellent drama.
7. The One With The Rumor (Season 8, Episode 9)
The Thanksgiving episodes are great, but this one stands out. It has Brad Pitt in it (It is rumored that Brad Pitt and Gennifer Anniston were dating then). Brad plays Ross’s high school friend Will. It appears that Will hates Rachel, and he has his reasons, ‘Rachel was mean to then-fatso Will in high school.’ Monica ran into him and invited him to the party, unaware of his feelings for Rachel. We discovered something peculiar in the episode: Ross and Will founded the ‘I Hate Rachel Green Club.’ The episode is remembered for uncovering many high school secrets. Rachel was heartbroken to know that it was Will and Ross who started brutal humor about her. Meanwhile, the incredible Joey found his peace in Phoebe’s maternity pants in an attempt to finish the entire turkey.
6. The One With Joey’s New Brain (Season 7, Episode 15)
The hilarious Joey got his show back and returned to Days of our Lives. But he is not Drake Ramoray anymore. What we mean is he has Drake Ramoray’s body, but the brain belongs to someone else. The struggling actor Joey let the daily soap ‘Days of our lives slip through his hands by making the terrible mistake of calling himself a scriptwriter. He got the show back but with a new brain, the brain that belongs to the character played by Susan Sarandon. The confusion and the humor that followed this turn of events are hilarious. Also, we see Ross playing bagpipes, not playing music but making noise, and he decides to do it at Monica and Chandler’s wedding.
5. The One With The Videotape (Season 8, Episode 4)
It is the episode where friends investigate the different theories of Rachel and Ross about who came to whom. The episode slowly unfolds and answers the most asked question, how did Rachel and Ross end up in bed six weeks earlier. In this episode, we also discover how many Monica guests did not receive the invitations. The videotape took us to the day when Emma happened, and we saw that Rachel came to Ross using the famous ‘backpacking pickup line’ by Ken Adams, a.k.a Joey Tribbiani. The episode is engaging and, of course, suspenseful. Also, Chandler and Monica find that their new married friends don’t like them and give them the wrong number. The episode is a tale where all the six friends work together, unraveling the mystery while doing their stuff.
4. The One With The Embryos (Season 4, Episode 12)
The twelfth episode of the fourth season is when Phoebee gets ready to conceive her brother’s children. That is precisely what she said to the people following nine months and freaked them out. Phoebe became a surrogate to Frank Jr. and Alice. In this episode, her uterus is implanted with the embryos. However, that is not the sole reason it is in 4th position. The episode has the most famous quiz of all time; the quiz between boys and girls. The quiz was hosted by Ross and ended in the apartment switch between Monica-Rachel and Chandler-Joey. Yes, this is the same episode where Rachel thought Chandler worked as a ‘Transponster.’ Thanks to Monica, we all know by now that ‘that’s not even a word.’ However, we all know that our smart girls manage to take their house back later, and let’s not discuss that.
3. The One In Vegas: Part 2 (Season 5, Episode 24)
The group is in Vegas and giving us the time of our lives. Giving the group a unique environment means taking out each character’s different sides. This is the wrap-up episode of season 5 and is the excellent one. Rachel and Ross got married in this episode. That is what we all wanted from the two, but the conditions were not right. On the other hand, Monica and Chandler almost got married; Thanks to Rachel and Ross, they didn’t. We wonder what Chandler would do if they married that early. This episode made us meet competitive and slightly evil Phoebe, and Joey had his adventures with his hand twin. From the humor to the wonderful settings, this episode had all in it.
2. The One With The Proposal: Part 2 (Season 6, Episode 25)
Chandler wanted to propose to Monica but did not want to make it obvious. With all the good intentions, he made a plan to push her and to make her believe that he was not into marriage stuff. Well, one part of the plan was successful. Monica believed in him and went to Richard. While Chandler talked about pigs and how marrying is a waste of time, Richard was ready to give her marriage and children. The moment they shared at the end is the most romantic moment of the entire series. Since true love finds its way, they find their way to each other. In that episode, the audience finds out why girls do not propose and why should Chandler should not propose as well. This episode is filled with humor, romance, and the proposal of our favorite couple.
1. The One Where Everybody Finds Out (Season 5, Episode 14)
Chandler and Monica wanted to keep their relationship a secret, but with other friends practically living at her house, this was not possible. How could they think their news would not reach the gossip queen, Rachel? Their love tale spread like termites on doors. What? did not like the example of termites; Phoebee can pet mice, and we cannot use ‘termites’ just for explaining. Not fair! Everyone learns about Monica and Chandler’s little affair in this episode. However, no doubt the entertainment we got from this episode is all on Phoebe. She saw them making out in the ugly naked guy’s apartment and started yelling. Then Rachel and Phoebe hatch out a plan to mess with the couple. The episode is also memorable because the little mischief by Rachel-Phoebe made Chandler-Monica confess that they love each other.
