Since Ross’ silly arrangement long fixation on “kara-tay” (his pretentious elocution) essentially gets a remain solitary scene as he squares off with Rachel and Phoebe in a progression of alarms intended to test their Unagi (maybe a condition of aggregate mindfulness, unquestionably a sort of sushi). Since Joey’s absurd arrangement long fixation on twins begins here as he tries — and comes up short — to persuade the logical world that Carl (Louis Mandylor) is his indistinguishable twin.

The One With the Blackout – Season 1
While the posse in the flat conveys awesome comedic minutes — Joey’s menorah, the feline assaulting Ross, Mr. Irritates (Larry Hankin) attempting to take the feline, which he calls Bob Buttons — this scene is a feature for Chandler as he stifles (actually and allegorically) while endeavoring to play it cool around the Victoria’s Secret model.

Since Alec Baldwin is a damn savor the experience of this part. To Parker, everything is great and Baldwin conveys each line with the unbridled worship of somebody who simply finished a first class eight ball.
The One With the Prom Video – Season 2
This particular episode is flooding with giggles, as Chandler unintentionally taunts the wrist trinket before Joey (“I feel sorry for the trick!”) and after that needs to supplant it to conceal any hint of failure confront, however the portion depends on the main VHS tape that accounts Monica and Rachel’s extremely ’80s prom night. As the group ogles at the huge noses, greater hair, and crude dresses, we’re acquainted with Fat Monica and some executioner jokes are dropped before hearts soften at the scene finishing disclosure.

There are numerous great Thanksgiving scenes of Friends, yet the football scene takes the turkey. In the wake of viewing the Giants diversion, the group chooses it would be amusing to play the game with them six.

The Last One – Season 10
Rachel and Ross back together (again once more), Monica and Chandler moving out of the city – the Friends two-section arrangement finale sent the show out in style. Chuckles, tears, Ross’ lost summer as a yearning artist, a very much apprciated lease control joke – it was really moving when everybody needed to hand over their keys.
The One Where Everybody Finds Out – Season 5
After Phoebe finds what Rachel and Joey have known for a considerable length of time — that Monica and Chandler are in fact dating — the young ladies begin upsetting the couple, which pieces of information in Monica and Chandler, so they counter.

From Ross’ astonishing flat spazz-assault to the presentation of Hugsey, Joey’s sleep time penguin buddy, there’s a great deal to love in this scene. However, it genuinely has a place with the delayed sexual confrontation amongst Phoebe and Chandler — it begins with bicep crushing and closures with a delightful announcement of adoration.
The One With Two Parts: Part 2 – Season 2
The twofold date is a standout amongst the most diverting bits of satire the show has ever done. As the young ladies’ disappointments with each other assume control, Monica (as Rachel) and Rachel (as Monica) start to speak crap around each other to the specialists, who couldn’t be more befuddled by what they’ve strolled in to.
The One With Ross’ Sandwich – Season 5
You may have seen that his rundown has a considerable measure of Ross Gellar crack outs. There’s no denying. In any case, nothing tops Ross’ uproarious regret of his lost ‘soggy creator’ sandwich. A sandwich so pined for (it was in reality the main good thing going ahead in his life) that everybody immediately needed to eat one of their own one of a kind.
Be that as it may, rageaholic Ross aside, the best – THE BEST – part of this one was the way Joey needed to continue covering for Monica and Chandler’s undertaking. He was the special case who thought about them now and in this manner continued taking the fault for their unintended sex intimations. Since he’s Joey.
The One Where No One is Ready – Season 3
This jug scene (all the move makes put in a solitary room) is so enlivened, even a drained figure of speech — Rachel can’t choose what to wear — feels new here. There are magnificent asides (Why does Donald Duck wrap a towel around his abdomen in the wake of escaping the shower on the off chance that he doesn’t wear pants?), incredible throughlines (drink the fat), and an arrangement characterizing battle amongst Chandler and Joey over responsibility for flat’s comfiest seat.
The One With the Embryos – Season 4
Here’s the test. The best scene in all of Friends story. Misleadingly covered up inside a scene called “The One With All the Embryos,” the young men versus young ladies “who knows who best” test, for responsibility for loft, was great. Basically, when you think about this show you think about this scene. What’s more, of the flawless Miss Chanandler Bong.
While Phoebe is at the richness center endeavoring to be falsely inseminated, Joey, Chandler, Monica, and Rachel are squaring off in a Ross-made question and answer contest to see which group know about the other more — and the young ladies’ loft is in question.
The data uncovered all through the diversion (Miss Chanandler Bong, sandwiches, huge goalie) is entertaining, yet what makes this scene such a champion is the way splendidly LeBlanc, Perry, Aniston, and Cox convey an energized shout.
