The 12 Funniest F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Moments

The entire series of Friends is on Netflix!

Since it would take about 80 hours to watch the entire series start to finish, I thought I’d share my personal favorite Friends moments. Although if you’ve never watched it start to finish, by all means, watch it start to finish.

The 12 Funniest Friends Moments

There are tons of laugh out loud, funny every single time, will just never get old, Friends moments. In no particular order, these are the Friends moments that (in my opinion) make the show one of the best sitcoms of all time.

1. “Ross married Rachel in Vegas and got divorced! Again!”

Mrs. Geller [to Ross]: It was you?
Monica: And Dad, you know that mailman you got fired? He didn’t steal your Playboys. Ross did!
Ross: Yeah, well hurricane Gloria didn’t break the porch swing. Monica did!
Monica: Ross hasn’t worked at the museum for a year!
Ross: Monica and Chandler are living together!
Monica: Ross married Rachel in Vegas and got divorced… again!
Phoebe: I love Jacques Cousteau!
Rachel: I wasn’t supposed to put beef in the trifle!
Joey: I wanna go!
Mrs. Geller: That’s a lot of information to get in 30 seconds.

So much. So fast. So funny.

The One Where Ross Got High (Season 6, Episode 9)

2. “He’s not backing down! He went to get lotion!”

This entire episode is perfection but when Phoebe tries to seduce Chandler and throws in this dance move, no one could resist laughing. What follows is one of the most epic Friends moments…”because I’m in love with Monica!”

The One Where Everybody Finds Out (Season 5, Episode 14)

3. Princess Consuela Bananahammock

The One With Princess Consuela (Season 10, Episode 14)

4. “I’m making Fajitas!”

Ross: No. We should all have dinner. Yes, we’ll do it tomorrow night. I’ll cook!!
Joey: Look, don’t you think that will be a little weird?
Ross: Weird? What? What’s weird? The only thing weird would be if someone didn’t like Mexican food, because I’m making fajitas!!

Ross was not fine.

The One Where Ross is Fine (Season 10, Episode 2)

5. “Well they should put that on the box!!!”

Ross: Yeah, I need uh… I’m just—I don’t know—I don’t understand, umm, how this happened? We-we used a condom.
Rachel: I know. I know, but y’know condoms only work like 97% of the time.
Ross: What? What? What?!! Well they should put that on the box!!!
Rachel: They do!
Ross: No they don’t!!! (He runs to the bedroom to check and returns with his box of condoms.) Well they should put it in huge black letters!!!!

The One Where Rachel Tells… (Season 8, Episode 3)

6. “That is brand new information!”

Because everyone knew that Ross was the father before he did. This is possibly my second most quoted line of television ever. After this one.

The One Where Rachel Tells… (Season 8, Episode 3)

7.”Imagine how Ross would feel if he couldn’t teach us about dragons.”

Monica: Okay, if it means that much to you…
Phoebe: It does! How would you feel if you couldn’t share your cooking? Or-or imagine how Ross would feel if he couldn’t teach us about dragons.
Monica: Dinosaurs.
Phoebe: Potato, potaato.

I couldn’t find a picture, gif, or video of this quote anywhere but it’s one of my very favorite lines from the show.

The One With the Secret Closet (Season 8, Episode 14)

8. “Judge all you want, but…”

Monica: “Married a lesbian, left a man at the altar, fell in love with a gay ice dancer, threw a girl’s wooden legs in a fire, lives in a box!”

The One With Chandler In A Box (Season 4, Episode 8)

9. “Do you think he knew I was here?”

The One With Ross’s Wedding Part 2 (Season 4, Episode 23)

10. “So now, the real question is, who put those fossils there, and why?”

The entire plotline of Phoebe not believing in evolution (or gravity, for that matter) and Ross’s reaction to it is well, very Phoebe and very Ross. It’s Friends perfection.

Ross: Ok, Pheebs. See how I’m making these little toys move? Opposable thumbs. Without evolution, how do you explain opposable thumbs?
Phoebe: Maybe the overlords needed them to steer their spacecrafts.

The One Where Heckles Dies (Season 2, Episode 3)

11. “He’s a transpondster!”

that's not even a word friends gif

There are so many great lines from the “who knows who better” game. The entire storyline of the girls losing the good apartment was fabulous. Which of course led to…”Has it always been purple?”

The One With The Embroyos (Season 4, Episode 12)

12. And last but not least, THIS:

The One With All The Wedding Dresses (Season 4, Episode 20)

With 10 seasons, it’s would be impossible for me not to have missed a couple dozen (hundreds even?) hilarious moments. Which Friends moment is your favorite? Share in the comments and give the season and episode if you can! Happy re-watching, everyone!

  • Believe it or not, I have never watched Friends, except in reruns on TBS! I can’t wait to watch it on Netflix. About time, right?

  • I’ve been marathoning Friends and it’s just SO AWESOME. I’m on season five and I can’t wait for the episode where everyone finds out because it’s the best ever.

  • I love this show! I just started re-watching it on Netflix. Classic!

  • Samantha

    I could never narrow it down!! Haha I love when Ross gets the spray tab, Paper, snow, A GHOST! And big fat goalie.. But so many others lol

  • Kate Hodges

    I love friends so much!!! My favorite episode is the one with unagi, where Ross gets a spray tan and all the thanksgiving episodes (but especially the one where they play football) I’m so happy now they’re on Netflix:)

  • THIS WAS AWESOME. I have to add my favorite from the episode where Ross finds out about Joey and Rachel (same episode as the fajitas) – “I’M FINE!” God I love this show.

  • I LOVE Friends! The “Judge All You Want” episode is one of my favorites! I also love the poking device episode (Monica bang!) and the one with Ross in the tanning bed.

  • I’ll have to go with the scene of Ross trying to get the couch up the stairs (Season 5, “The One with the Cop”).

    I’ve been doing a series on my blog of favorite quotes from each character and most of these are in there! I’ve watched every episode at least 20 times and they still make me crack up. LOVE this show!

  • SO many good moments all in one place! I just watched the “could I BE wearing anymore clothes” episode last night–another favorite!

  • Oh my goodness, my productivity levels are about to plummet! I love all your favorite moments – its so hard to pick favorites when the show was SO good!

  • Oh my word. Your number 8, 11, and 12 are my favorites. Something about the earlier ones I bond with so much more than the later seasons.

  • I just love this. I’ve been watching nonstop and don’t know if I could narrow down my favorites like you have here!

  • Ahhh my abolute favorite show – the only one, probably, that can get me to laugh out loud every. single. time. no fail!

  • I’ve seen them all tons of times and blogged about it multiple times as well. I’m still watching them all on Netflix again though. I just started season 7. All of these are great moments!

    I would have to add…

    “Hey, look at me. I’m Chandler! Could I be wearing anymore clothes?”

  • Fajitas / I’m Fine! will always be my favorite.

  • I never watched Friends through, just episodes here and there as I was growing up. I’ve been binging it on Netflix since the first of January though! I think you selected some really good episodes. It says a lot that many of them are household jokes – the power of how good the episodes are that they outlasted the show.

  • I LOVE THIS! I still watch the Friends reruns on TBS 🙂

  • this show. my favorite all the time.

  • I’m making my way through every episode now because when the show was live, I didn’t watch it. (I believe I was in 4th grade when it ended?). I’ve watched repeats on TBS for years, but it’s so awesome getting to watch it all in order.

  • I love all of these and totally agree that everyone should watch the entire series from start to finish at least once. I also love the one where Ross buys a couch and tries to get it up the stairs to his apartment . . . PIVOT and I also love the one where they go to vegas and Ross & Rachel get married, and the one where Ross goes tanning . . . gosh I could just go on and on 🙂

  • embarrassingly admitting that we’re almost finished with the series and planning to watch the series finale tonight (to be fair, we’ve been sick all of January). It has been fun watching them in order because I was a little to young for them the first time around and really just watched reruns.

    I love all of these, but I think the “This is brand new information” has to be my favorite.
    I just watched ‘The One Where Ross Is Fine’ for the first time and I died laughing during that whole episode.

  • YESSS! These are some of my all time favorite moments as well. I love, love, love the part in The One With the Secret Closet where Joey and Chandler are trying to get in to the closet and he talks about the horror movie and then when he and Rachel are leaving and he’s says “watch your step there’s bugs everywhere!” Bahaha. Other favorites: The One With All The Cheesecakes and The One Where They’re Up All Night. “Fire alarm?” Gosh, I love that show.

  • Dee

    I love all these! Friends will never be not be funny! One of my fave funny scenes is the one with the red sweater, when Ross finally takes the sweater and says it’s his and Monica & Phoebe go “Oh my God!” and Joey doesn’t figure it out until 2 beats later.

  • Oh man! I totally LOLed while reading this! My all time favorite episode is “The One When No One is Ready” but the one with the game and when everyone finds out is great too! I love “they don’t know that we know they know” – just great!
