Who doesn’t love this TV show? Each episode will make you laugh your heart out at the hilarious conversations but there are a few that stand out the most. If you’re one of the very few people who haven’t watched this series (then why haven’t you?!) here’s a list of episodes you can binge-watch to get you started.
The One With The Cop (Season 5 Episode 16)
Ross goes couch shopping for his apartment and enlists the help of Rachel and Chandler in bringing it up the stairs. The hilarity of the PIVOT scene as they maneuver the couch on the stairs is one that Friends fans will never forget. Especially when the cast themselves found the scene so funny, they had to retake multiple times.
The One Where No One’s Ready (Season 3 Episode 2)
This episode only had one setting (Monica’s living room) but it’s one of the greatest episodes – well, the greatest or the most annoying, you decide. Ross invites his friends for an event at the museum and they should be leaving in 30 minutes but nobody’s ready. Chandler and Joey get in a fight over who should sit on the chair and goes at extreme lengths to annoy each other.
The One With the Prom Video (Season 2 Episode 14)
Ross and Monica’s parents send Monica a box of her old stuff including a tape of Monica and Rachel preparing for prom which the friends decided to watch even though Ross objected. The video showed fat Monica and large nosed Rachel, the latter having apparently been ditched by her prom date. Upon the insistence of his mother, Ross gets dressed and gets ready to take Rachel to prom but before she finds out, her date suddenly shows up. As present day Rachel watches this, she kisses Ross and forgives him for what happened between them.
The One With Ross’s Wedding (Season 4 Episode 23/24)
The friends fly to London for Ross’ wedding with the exception of the pregnant Phoebe and Rachel who declined. Things go awry when Ross discovers that their wedding site is being repaired ahead of schedule. Still, they make things work and plan to go on with the wedding. Back at home, Rachel realizes she still has feelings for Ross and decides to fly to London to tell him. Meanwhile, Chandler and Monica shockingly end up in bed together.
The One Where Everybody Finds Out (Season 5 Episode 14)
Monica and Chandler are now in a secret relationship and only Joey knows about them. However, Phoebe finds out and teams up with Rachel to get the couple to reveal their relationship. Phoebe and Rachel devise plans (that involve a lot of flirting) to get Monica and Chandler to tell the truth. In the end Chandler had to declare his love for Monica to get out of the awkward situation.
The One Where Ross Got High (Season 6 Episode 9)
Ross and Monica’s parents are coming over for Thanksgiving and Chandler, who is now living with Monica, attempts to win them over, aside from the obvious but still mysterious fact that the Gellers hate him. Monica then lets Rachel make the dessert which ended being trifle with a layer of beef in it. The evening starts to unravel when Monica tells her parents that Ross smoked pot in college and blamed it on Chandler.
The One With Unagi (Season 6 Episode 16)
Phoebe and Rachel take self-defense classes and brag how they could kick any man’s ass. Ross tells them he studied “kara-tay” for years and the practice would be useless without Unagi, a concept of total awareness. Rachel tells him it’s a salmon sushi roll and that Unagi isn’t real. He then proceeds to jump scare the girls whenever he can to prove that they lacked Unagi but they retaliate and pin him to the floor.
The One With Monica and Chandler’s Wedding (Season 7 Episode 23/24)
Chandler seemed so calm throughout the whole preparation for the wedding, but it’s not until he hears the voice machine say “The Bings” that his calm façade unravels and he realizes what he’s walking in to. Afterwards, Ross finds out Chandler ran away with a note for Monica saying he’s sorry. Ross tries to look for him, finds him in his office and manages to persuade him to come back. The events before the wedding are chaotic but at the end of it all, we see how much Chandler really loved Monica, and that’s enough for us.
