Since making its debut in 1994, Friends has been known as one of the greatest and funniest sitcoms to have graced our television screens. Whether it was with Chandler’s sarcasm, Phoebe’s weirdness, Rachel’s ditzy-ness, Monica’s ultra-competitiveness, Ross’ geekiness or Joey’s not-so-big brain, Friends has not failed to keep us entertained for 10 years (plus countless more, thanks to Netflix and DVDs). Whenever you watch an episode, you know you’re in for some laughs.
But, what if you only had seven hours to spend watching Friends? Which ones would you watch? We know it’s really hard to choose because they’re all so good! Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up 15 of the funniest Friends episodes, so that you don’t have to hurt your head making that difficult decision. Did your favorite make the cut? Let us know!
For your information, this list contains many spoilers if you haven’t already binge-watched all 10 seasons of Friends (but don’t let that stop you). And, FYI, for some reason, nearly all episode titles will begin with "The One".
15 All The Thanksgivings
14 The Prom Video
13 When Ross Got High
12 The Final Episode (Parts 1 & 2)
11 Ross' Tan
In 'The One With Ross’ Tan', Ross goes to the tanning salon several times but manages to mess up each and every single time, despite the very simple instructions. Ross' reactions in the tanning salon are amusing but this line pretty much ties those reactions for funniest scene in this episode:
Ross: "I went to that tanning place your wife suggested."
Chandler: "Was that place the sun?"
10 When No One’s Ready
9 When Ross Can’t Flirt
8 The Embryos
7 Chandler In A Box
6 Ross' Sandwich
5 All The Resolutions
4 The Blackout
3 The Proposal (Part 1)
In episode 18 of season 8, it’s Ross and Monica’s parents’ anniversary and the whole gang is invited. Phoebe's boyfriend, Parker (played by Alec Baldwin), has such zest for life that he's comparable to "Santa Clause on Prozac in Disneyland, getting laid.” Every time he sees something, he thinks that it’s the greatest and that he “must take a mental picture." Even the damn hallway is amazing to him. Ross and Rachel also give us quite a laugh as they pretend to be married (as per Ross’ parents’ wishes) and get carried away with wedding stories, like pretending to be married on a cliff in Barbados while Stevie Wonder sang (yeah, right!).
1 The Dollhouse
Who would think that a dollhouse could be so entertaining? In episode 20 of season 3, Monica inherits a dollhouse from her aunt and she treats it the way she treats her real house. That is, she doesn’t let Phoebe have any say in the décor or its inhabitants (attic ghost and giant dog). This leads Phoebe to build her own dollhouse, complete with licorice, a slide instead of stairs and an aroma room (which eventually causes a fire in the dollhouse). The funniest part is Phoebe’s reaction to the fire (“the Foster puppets!”) and the way Ross plays the part of the fire chief. Another storyline in this episode involves Rachel’s boss, Joanna, who finds Chandler attractive. Rachel, wanting to get on her boss’ good side, sets them up but things don’t go so well. His complete inability to resist the urge to say: “I’ll give you a call, we should do it again sometime” is what makes this so funny.
