    10 "Friends" Episodes To Watch That'll Instantly Make Any Bad Day 10 Times Better

    Are you feeling worse than Ross and Rachel when they were "on a break"? Just trying to PIVOT through the day?

    10. "The One With the Rumor" (Season 8, Episode 9)

    NBC

    "The One With the Rumor" will have you reliving your high school glory days, while being simultaneously grateful you have moved on to better times. Not to mention Joey vs. the turkey is an epic showdown that you can't miss!

    9. "The One Where Ross Finds Out" (Season 2, Episode 7)

    NBC

    For everyone that ships Ross and Rachel (which come on, isn't that everyone?) this episode is a STAPLE. Ross finally finds out how Rachel feels, which allows everyone else watching to get the ~feels~.

    8. "The One Where Eddie Won't Go" (Season 2, Episode 19)

    NBC

    This episode truly makes you appreciate what a good, and normal roommate Joey Tribbiani is compared to Chandler's new and... interesting... roommate, Eddie (uh, does that scene with the gold fish in in the fish tank keep anyone else up at night?). Plus Phoebe also gets her moment to shine with her own "Smelly Cat" music video!

    7. "The One With the Embryos" (Season 4, Episode 12)

    NBC

    Not only does this episode highlight Pheobe's heart, and her willingness to do anything for those she loves, but this is arguably one of the funniest episodes in the whole series. It's Rachel and Monica vs. Chandler and Joey in a Jeopardy match of which set of friends knows each other better. Cue Rachel jumping up and down yelling, "HE'S A TRANSPONSTER!!!!"

    6. "The One With Ross' Wedding" (Season 4, Episode 24)

    NBC

    Yes, Ross says the wrong name at the altar, but more importantly one of the show's best couples finally gets together! It's a huge shock at first, but then you realize that it could not BE any more obvious that Chandler and Monica should be together.

    5. "The One With All the Resolutions" (Season 5, Episode 11)

    NBC

    In this episode the gang decides to try to stick to their New Year's resolutions, which somehow ends up in Ross wearing leather pants. Enough said.

    4. "The One With the Jellyfish" (Season 4, Episode 1)

    NBC

    This episode is iconic in its own right, (like hello, Rachel convinced Ross's new girlfriend to shave her HEAD), but nothing compares to what happens down at the beach. Chandler really shows up for Monica.

    3. "The One Where No One's Ready" (Season 3, Episode 2)

    NBC

    It's always hilarious to see Ross get worked up, but nothing is funnier than when Joey pranks Chandler. Plus, Monica's debacle with Richard and the voicemail is pure post-relationship stress that nearly everyone can relate to.

    2. "The One With the Cop" (Season 5, Episode 16)

    NBC

    The real highlight of this episode is Ross yelling "PIVOT!!!!!!" as he enlists Rachel to help him move his new couch.

    1. "The Last One Part Two" (Season 10, Episode 18)

    NBC

    Ross and Rachel finally figure it out. She got off the plane. She's his lobster! Come on, how can you not smile at this?!
