Friends: These Are The Fan Favourite Episodes
Last year marked the 25th anniversary of Friends, the iconic NBC sitcom about six 20-somethings living in New York who are trying to make their way in the world. Starring Jennifer Aniston as "Rachel Green," Courteney Cox as "Monica Geller," Matt LeBlanc as "Joey Tribbiani," David Schwimmer as "Ross Geller," and Matthew Perry as "Chandler Bing," the show has become known for its hilarious moments and quirky yet relatable characters.
To honour the milestone, United Kingdom television network Comedy Central launched a poll to help determine the top 25 funniest Friends episodes! As Digital Spy shares, the final decision was made after more than 12,000 votes were cast over two months. And as it turns out, British fans of Friends seem to have a favourite character, as many of the winning episodes feature "Ross".
These are the episodes that came out on top— how would you rank them?
"The One With the Baby on the Bus" (Season 2, Episode 6)
"Joey" and "Chandler" are tasked with looking after "Ben," who turns out to be a real hit with the ladies— but then they accidentally leave him on a bus. "Phoebe" is replaced by "Stephanie" as Central Perk's singer.
"The One With the Football" (Season 3, Episode 9)
The third season's Thanksgiving episode sees the friends playing American football against one another. Competitive siblings "Ross" and "Monica" become opposing team captains, "Ross" hurts "Rachel's" feelings by not choosing her for his team, and "Joey" goes head-to-head with "Chandler"!
"The One with the Rumor" (season 8, episode 9)
"Monica" invites her high school friend "Will" (who's played by Brad Pitt!) to Thanksgiving dinner, but doesn't realize he's not a big fan of "Rachel". "Chandler" and "Phoebe" find a way to avoid pitching in to give "Monica" a hand in the kitchen, while "Joey" claims he can eat a whole turkey.
