I do love this routine of #Top10Tuesday – Being a dedicated Friends fan, I had to write a blog post all about it. If you have been hiding under a rock and don’t know what Friends is or you have never seen an episode, Friends is an american comedy show which has 10 seasons worth or absolute bliss. The story lines follow 6 friends and their lives while living in New York city. It is one of the funniest and most relatable things you could ever see and I would like to mention my top 10 episodes. Now, if you have never seen Friends and would like to, I will be including spoilers so please dedicate your life to watching all 10 seasons then come back here and enjoy my post. If you are like me and are religiously attached to Friends then, enjoy:[in no particular order]
1. The One with Ross’ Teeth
I don’t know anybody who doesn’t laugh their heads off when Hilary changes the lighting and Ross’ teeth light up the room. He is just so awkward and I think that is why he is so relatable. He could have cancelled the date, gone to the dentist or rubbed coffee on his teeth to dull them but instead he went on the date and didn’t talk, just “hhmmmmm”ed his was through it hahaha.
2. The One with the Prom Video
This is probably one of my top 3. At the end when Rachel finds out about what Ross did the night of her prom and goes over to him stood at the door and kisses him is one of the cutest things I have ever seen. I think that, if I watched that episode just as it came out, I would have been screaming oh my gosh.
3. The One when Everybody Finds Out
I can just imagine how funny this was to film. Phoebe always shines as the best character but this episode was definitely her episode. There was no better way for everybody to find out about Monica and Chandler. Couldn’t have been any better.
4. The One when Rachel’s Sister Babysits
This is when Mike proposes to Phoebe. I love how many times he had to do it to get it right. You can’t propose to Phoebe normally, that would be boring and she is certainly not boring. The writers just keep getting all these things spot on.
5. The One with Unagi
*ahhh, salmon skin role* This is the exact thing I say when I make somebody jump. I also imagine Ross screaming quite high pitched when I do it too hahaha! This episode is one of them forgotten ones where, when it is on telly, you underestimate how funny it actually is.
6. The One with the Embryos
Although it’s lovely to find out that Phoebe is going to have her brothers kids, I think that the quiz between the boys and girls is hilarious. Just a side note, I have never seen Ross more me in any other episode. I would lay out cards like that and get all of the questions ready. I love stuff like that haha.
7. The One Where Ross Got High
When Ross and Monica burst out into confessions, I lose it. It’s so funny when old things get dug up from the past “Hurricane Gloria didn’t break the porch swing Monica did” hahaha. Plus, Judy came into her own in the episode – putting out all the fires like she was Fireman Sam.
8. The One After Monica and Chandler’s Wedding
I think it is pretty obvious why this episode is one of the best. Rachel has always been my favourite character throughout the 10 seasons and I kind of love the fact that she was a single Mum at some stages because it shows how much she grown as a character: from the needy girl running away from her wedding to a single mum. She is the character that I would more want to be like (even though I think I am more like Monica because I am paranoid about everything and need things to be clean all the time haha)
9. The One with All the Resolutions
“Now the lotion and the powder have made a paste” one of the best little bits of dialogue ever – I really wish he made himself some paste pants though haha.
10. The Last One
Best episode ever in my opinion. I always feel emotional at the end and it’s been 10 years since that episode. You know when writers just get the ending of a show perfect, well, this is one of them times. I can’t quite get over how amazing they managed to get the last episode. Even the last scene was just a perfect goodbye.
And there’s my top 10 Friends episodes. Every single episode is incredible but these are the ones I think of as my favourites. If you have any other favourites then please let me know in the comments. I will see you all tomorrow for day #33!
