Yet they overcome the issue, and their friendships strengthens as a result. 14. “The One With Ross’s Tan” (Season 10, Episode 3) NBC Ross gets a spray tan and turns four shades darker than he had planned to be. Watching his painfully uneven tan is quite enjoyable. 13. “The One With Chandler in a Box” (Season 4, Episode 8) NBC On Thanksgiving, Joey puts Chandler in a box to punish him— not for sleeping with his girlfriend, but for lying about it. Monica has a very awkward moment with her ex-boyfriend’s son, and Ross is mad at Rachel because she always exchanges the gifts she receives. It has everything you want and more. 12. “The One With All the Thanksgivings” (Season 5, Episode 8) NBC This episode contains everything: embarrassing flashbacks, Chandler confessing his love to Monica, and frozen turkeys being put on more than one person's head. 11. “The One With the Blackout” (Season 1, Episode 7) NBC This early episode proved this show had the creativity to be a long-lasting phenomenon. During its runtime, Chandler gets stuck in an ATM vestibule with model Jill Goodacre, and Ross gets so close to telling Rachel how he feels. As Chandler says, it is “perfection.” 10. “The One With the Cop” (Season 5, Episode 16) NBC Ross recruits Rachel and Chandler to help move a new couch into his apartment, but the couch gets stuck in a stairwell. The word “PIVOT” has never been said the same way since. 9. “The One With All the Resolutions” (Season 5, Episode 11) NBC In this episode, the friends make and quickly break their New Year's resolutions: Rachel’s gossiping less and Chandler’s not making fun of anyone. Ross attempts to do one new thing every day, which gets him stuck in a pair of very tight leather pants. The best part? Everyone broke their resolutions within a day! 8. “The One With Unagi” (Season 6, Episode 17) NBC There are three wild storylines in this one: Chandler’s efforts to make Monica a Valentine’s Day present, Joey pretending to be twins with a look-alike actor, and, of course, Unagi (Ross’s "sense" of danger), which results in getting beating up by Phoebe and Rachel. 7. “The One With the Football” (Season 3, Episode 9) NBC The gang, specifically siblings Ross and Monica, compete for the Geller Cup in this Thanksgiving special. This episode seems like it was made for me as I'm an avid fan of football, and I'm very competitive with my sibling. 6. “The One With the Proposal, Part 2” (Season 6, Episode 25) NBC This is arguably the sweetest moment in the entire 10-year run of the show. Monica and Chandler finally propose to each other after a series of wacky event and miscommunications. It's incredibly endearing to watch! 5. “The One Where No One’s Ready” (Season 3, Episode 2) NBC / Via friends.fandom.com The gang tries, but fails to get ready for Ross’s work event. Joey famously wears ALL of Chandler’s clothes and Phoebe wears a giant Christmas bow to hide a hummus stain, thus annoying Ross and charming viewers. 4. “The One With the Jellyfish” (Season 4, Episode 1) NBC This episode is such a rollercoaster! Joey and Chandler help Monica with her jellyfish sting by attempting to pee on her, and Ross coins another famous phrase, “We were on a break!" 3. “The One With the Prom Video” (Season 2, Episode 14) NBC This episode is significant because it's the first with flashback sequences: a home video of Monica, Rachel, and Ross getting ready for prom. This video leads to the start of Ross and Rachel’s relationship and contains Phoebe’s famous line, “He’s her lobster.” 2. “The One With the Embryos” (Season 4, Episode 12) NBC This is one of the most fun episodes as it centers around Chandler and Joey facing off against Rachel and Monica in a trivia game led by Ross. The audience learns more about the backstories of the gang ( such as Chandler's mail is addressed to Ms. Chanandler Bong) and is heart-warmed by learning that Phoebe is pregnant. 1. And finally, “The One Where Everybody Finds Out” (Season 5, Episode 14) NBC We finally see Chandler and Monica go public with their relationship in this episode. The general chaos of the pair attempting to convince Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe they are not together perfectly captures the essence of the show, which is why this is my personal all-time favorite episode.
