12 Funniest ‘Friends’ Episodes Ever
Friends had us laughing through all 10 of its seasons, which is what solidified it as one of the 90s (and early 2000s) funniest series. All six of the main stars could hold their own when it came to comedy and as an ensemble it was television magic. Choosing which episodes are the best of the bunch is nearly impossible, but definitely a fun task to take on. Here are 12 of Friends’ funniest episodes.
12. The One Where Ross Got High (Season 6, Episode 9)
The writers of Friends did some of their best work when it came to the show’s Thanksgiving episodes and the cast and crew matched them word for word. “The One Where Ross Got High” included the Gellar parents and Monica’s admission that she hasn’t told them that she’s in a relationship with Chandler and that she’s living with him. When he asks why, it turns out the older Gellar’s don’t like him, thinking he’s a bad influence on Ross stemming from a pot-related incident way back when the boys were in college. The tattle-tale telling of past lies – along with Rachel’s epically horrible dessert (Joey: “I mean, what’s not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!”) – makes this an episode full of laugh-spurring moments.
11. The One With Chandler in a Box (Season 4, Episode 8)
An earlier Thanksgiving episode also makes the list for Funniest Friends Episodes. When Chandler kisses Joey’s girlfriend, he tries to earn his best-friend’s forgiveness by spending a silent sentence in a wooden box. As awkward as it ends up being, it’s nothing compared to Monica’s dinner date, who just happens to be the son of her ex-boyfriend Richard. They kiss and it’s weird, but the episode is hilarious.
