    My 10 All-Time Favourite Friends Episodes

    So anyone who knows me knows that I have a huge obsession with Friends. I've been watching it since I was about 9, and I have the boxset, and I watched alllll the repeats on E4 and Channel 4 once upon a time (unfortunately I don't have Comedy Central). It's one of those TV shows that will just always make you feel better no matter what, and I know lots of people feel the same way about it; sooooo here are my favourites that you must watch if you've never seen it, or if you feel particularly rubbish haha!

    1. The One With The Rumour


    Brad Pitt was in this episode whilst he was married to Jennifer Aniston, playing a character who despised her character from school. Enough said really. One of my favourites, with so so many brilliant lines!

    2. The One With Ross' Tan


    Oh Ross. The picture alone shows how funny this episode is, as Ross tries and fails to successfully to get a spray tan. Chandler (as always) has some brilliant lines in this too: 'Was that place...the sun?'

    3. The One Where Everybody Finds Out


    This has been one of my favourites for years, just because I love Phoebe and I enjoy watching her mess with Chandler haha! The fact that Joey gets caught in the middle of everything going on makes it funnier!

    4. The One Where Ross is Fine



    Because Ross is all of us when trying to deal with bad news but trying not to let it show.

    5. The One With The Unagi


    I love this one because it's so funny watching Rachel and Phoebe mock Ross and him getting annoyed by it (Ross really does seem to have some of the best storylines?). 'DANGERRR!'

    6. The One With The Embryos


    This episode is a must-watch for all Friends fans. Monica & Rachel vs. Chandler & Joey in the battle of the apartments, answering questions about each other. It gets very funny very quickly as you find out more about each of the characters, while at the same time it's heartwarming as Phoebe starts to prepare for being a surrogate mother having embryos implanted.

    7. The One With The Football


    Again another one where Monica and Ross show their competitive sides to win the 'Geller Cup' which, as Chandler puts it, is just a 'troll doll nailed to a two-by-four'. Rachel attempts to play sport, Phoebe is pretty much in her own little world enjoying learning about football, and Chandler and Joey are fighting over a Dutch girl, trying to impress her. I even have this one on my iPod, it's so good!

    8. The One With The Prom Video


    Through old videos, we see Monica and Rachel getting ready for their prom, and Ross doing something really lovely to try to help. We also see 'Fat Monica' for the first time, and it's the episode that gave us the famous 'you're my lobster' quote thanks to Phoebe!

    9. The One With All The Thanksgivings



    This episode takes another trip down memory lane, showing how Ross and Chandler know each other, and how Monica lost all her weight. It also involves Monica putting a Turkey with a Fez on her head, so you can't go wrong really!

    10. The One Where Ross Got High


    Jack and Judy Geller, Monica and Ross' parents, come over for Thanksgiving, where Rachel prepares a somewhat interesting version of an English trifle. Lots of secrets about Monica and Ross come out and Chandler saves the day!

    I'm sure I've missed some out, but these are the ones that I love the most! :)
