When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, Friends is always there for us…
It’s been over 20 years since top TV show, Friends hit the small screen. Our lives got a whole lot funnier once Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler and Joey came into our lives. From Phoebe’s “Smelly Cat” song to Ross’ fake tan, the cherished characters have had us crying tears of laughter. The fabulous ensemble still grace our television screens and cheer us up to this very day…
We’re about to take a fun trip down Friends memory lane and pick out Ross, Rachel, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Chandler’s best moments…
Ross’ Best Moments
1. We Were on a Break
We know it’s not our business at all, but Ross and Rachel were on a break. So everyone should just stop blaming Ross.
2. Leather Pants Trouble
When Ross decided to buy a new pair of leather pants for a date, all hell froze over when he had to use the toilet! TV GOLD!
3. One Spray Tan too Many
Ross’ Mississippi counting mechanism just didn’t work for him. He ended up getting the greatest spray tan in history.
You know you’re a Friends fan if you can’t eat at a Japanese restaurant without thinking of Ross and Unagi.
5. Ross’ Keyboard Skills
When Ross played the keyboard, you were in for a treat! Grab a tissue, you’ll cry with laughter over and over again.
Monica’s Best Moments
1. Fat Dancing Monica
Is there actually anything better than fat dancing Monica?
2. Turkey Head
Or Monica dancing with a turkey head? The first time Chandler told Monica that he loved her was so ludicrously uncomfortable but priceless!
3. Monica’s Cornrows
You’ve got to give props to Monica who’s unafraid of rocking some cornrows.
4. Brother/Sister Dance
When Monica and Ross wanted to be on TV, they busted out their synchronized brother/sister moves. Every Friends fan has learnt the choreography. Standard.
5. OCD with Cleaning
Monica had us in fits of laughter when her OCD problems went too far and she started vacuuming the vacuum.
Joey’s Best Moments
1. Joey Doesn’t Share Food
When Joey says no, it means NO! He made greediness acceptable.
2. How You Doin’?
Who hasn’t used Joey’s classic pick-up line when flirting?
3. Dr. Drake Ramoray
As cheesy as he was, Dr. Drake Ramoray on Days of Our Lives will always have a place in our hearts.
4. Emptying that Wardrobe
“Hi I’m Chandler, could I BE wearing any more clothes?”
5. Joey’s Food & Girls Dilemma
Joey’s relationship with food came head-to-head with the ladies. “I want girls on bread!”
Rachel’s Best Moments
1. When in Labor
Rachel’s painful yet super-funny labor had us laughing out loud. Poor Ross suffered just as much.
2. Eating off the Floor
When you drop your precious cheesecake, pull a Friends move and eat it off the floor!
3. Drunk in Love
Remember when Rachel got drunk, married Ross and channelled her inner Joey with drawings on her face?
4. Rachel’s Cat
Rachel paid $1000 on a cat that looked like a “hand” and it almost ruined her life.
5. When she Got off the Plane
When Rachel “got off the plane” we cried for 24 hours straight.
Chandler’s Best Moments
1. Girly Bath Time
We loved that Chandler was hilariously comfortable with his feminine side.
2. Chandler the Comedian
Remember when Chandler proved he was the worst person to work in advertising?
3. The Chandler Dance
When it all goes to plan, do the Chandler dance!
4. Riding The Dog Statue
Chandler won over Monica’s apartment and strolled in on his signature dog statue. Memorable moment!
5. Chandler and Phoebe
Chandler and Phoebe both seduced each other and created a golden moment of entertainment.
Phoebe’s Best Moments
1. Phoebe Can’t Run
You can’t run through New York like that unless you’re Phoebe Buffay.
2. Smelly Cat
Of course all Friends fanatics have “Smelly Cat” on their music playlists!
3. My Eyes
The episode where Phoebe discovers that Monica and Chandler are dating is one of the most memorable of the entire series.
4. Sexy Phoebe Dance
Phoebe’s attempt at being sexy and seductive failed miserably but we couldn’t help but laugh uncontrollably the whole way through.
5. Regina Phalange
When all else fails… Regina Phalange.
It’s always fun reliving the best of Friends episodes. Let’s all raise a glass to the best TV show of all time!
