Best Fight

Rachel & Monica.
TOW The Last Night - s06e06

Monica and Chandler made the big step of moving in together, so Rachel had to move out. In the packing process, the girls start to fight and say what things would not miss from each other.

(Here they had been reconciled already, I didn't find one of the fight itself.)

Best moments:
Rachel: "I’m Monica. I wash the toilet 17 times a day. Even if people are on it!"
Monica: "Hi I’m Rachel, is my sweater too tight? No? Oh, I’d better wash it and shrink it!"
Rachel: "I’m Monica, I don’t get phone messages from interesting people. Ever!"
Monica: "Oh my God, I love Ross! I hate Ross! I love Ross! I hate Ross!"
Rachel: "Oh my God, I can’t find a boyfriend! So I guess I’ll just stumble across the hall and sleep with the first guy I find in there!"

Monica: I never get my messages.
Rachel: You get your messages!
Monica: Yeah, well I don’t think it really counts if you have to read them off the back of your hand after you fall asleep on the couch.
Rachel: So-so, you missed a message from who? Chandler or your mom? Or Chandler? Or your mom?

Rachel: I’m unpacking!
Monica: What?!
Rachel: I’m not moving! (She re-hangs a picture, crookedly.) Is that picture straight?
Monica: It needs to go about 20 blocks to the left!

Monica: Well, this is the last box of your clothes. I’m just gonna label it, "What were you thinking?"
Rachel: Funny, because I was just gonna go across the hall and write that on Chandler.

Happier emotional scene

Chandler & Monica's engagement.
TOW the Proposal - s06e24 (Part 2)

I cry every time...

(Chandler walks dejectedly into his apartment to find it lit with about a thousand candles and Monica standing in the living room.)
Monica: You wanted it to be a surprise.
(He turns to look at Joey who smiles slyly and closes the door.)
Chandler: Oh my God.
(Monica gets down on one knee.)
Monica: Chandler… In all my life… I never thought I would be so lucky. (Starting to cry.) As to…fall in love with my best…my best… There’s a reason why girls don’t do this!
Chandler: Okay! (He joins her on one knee) Okay! Okay! I'll do it! Oh God, I thought… (Starting to cry, pauses) Wait a minute, I-I can do this. (Pause) I thought that it mattered what I said or where I said it. Then I realized the only thing that matters is that you, (Pause) you make me happier than I ever thought I could be. (Starting to cry again.) And if you’ll let me, I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you feel the same way. (Pause as he gets out the ring.) Monica, will you marry me?
Monica: Yes!
(The crowd goes wild as he puts the ring on her finger. They hug and kiss this time as an engaged couple.)

Saddest emotional scene

Ross & Rachel's big break-up.
TOW the Morning After - s03e16

I cry every time too! It's too sad!

Rachel: (softly) I think you should go.
Ross: What?
Rachel: (softly) I really think you need to go now.
Ross: This morning you said there was nothing so big that we couldn’t work past it together...
Rachel: Yeah, what the hell did I know!
Ross: Look, look, there’s got to be a way we can work past this. Okay, (takes a hold of one of her arms.) I can’t imagine, I can’t imagine my life without you. (Both of them are starting to cry.) Without, without these arms, and your face, and this heart. Your good heart Rach, (drops to his knees and hugs her around her waist) and, and...
Rachel: (crying) No. I can’t, you’re a totally different person to me now. I used to think of you as somebody that would never, ever hurt me, ever. God, and now I just can’t stop picturing with her, I can’t, (Ross stands up and backs away) it doesn’t matter what you say, or what you do, Ross. It’s just changed, everything. Forever.
Ross: (crying) Yeah, but this can’t be it, I mean.
Rachel: Then how come it is?

Worst Episode

The One Whith the Sharks
Season 9 / Episode 44

I don't know this is the WORST episode, maybe was one of my least favorites.

Through a misunderstanding, Monica ends up thinking that Chandler has a weird fetish with sharks.
Thanks to Ross and his big mouth, Phoebe realize she never had a serious long-term relationship.
Joey dates a girl, Hayley, who thinks he's inexperienced at dating, but once in her places he feels sure he dated her before.

Director: Ben Weiss

Writers: David Crane, Martha Kauffman, Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen

Best quotes:
Ross: ... You don't strike me as the type of person that wants to get married anyway.
Phoebe: I wanna get married!
Ross: Please don't cry because of me Pheebs I don't know what I'm talking about, I've been divorced three times.
Phoebe: Least you've been married, OH MY GOD! I wanna trade lives with Ross?!

Joey: Look I don't usually ask out women that I meet in coffeehouses.
Gunther: HA!
Joey: (to Gunther) Gesundheit! [Bless you!]
Hayley: I would love to go out with you.
Joey: Great, did I actually ask you?
Hayley: I just figured that I'd help you out, you don't seem like the kind of guy that does this very a lot.
Gunther: HA!
Joey: (to Gunther) Seriously Gunther you should see someone about that cold, if it gets much worse you could DIE!

Chandler: What's going on?
Monica: Sweetie it's ok, I still love you, let me be a part of this.
Chandler: Let ME be a part of this!
Monica: I saw you in Tulsa… angry sharks turn you on!
Chandler: No they don't
Monica: Then why were you watching them and giving YOURSELF a treat.
Chandler: OH MY GOD! When you came in I switched the channel!
Monica: Really?
Chandler: Yeah just some good old fashion girl on girl American action.

Best Episode

Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
The One Where Everyone Finds Out
Season 5 / Episode 14

There's a lot of good episodes, but I choose this one because was the one where everyone finds out about Chandler and Monica, and that was epic!

Director: Michael Lembeck

Writers: David Crane, Martha Kauffman and Alexa Junge

Best quotes:
Ross: It would be so cool to live across from you guys.
Joey: Hey, yeah. Then we could do that telephone thing. Y'know, you have a can, we have a can and it's connected by a string.
Chandler: Or we can do the *actual* telephone thing.

Ross: Hey, didn't he used to have a cat?
Phoebe: Oh, I wouldn't bring that up. It'll probably just bum him out.
Joey: Yeah. Poor cat. Never saw that big butt coming.

(Phoebe has been hitting on Chandler)
Monica: Oh my God. She knows about us.
Chandler: Are you serious?
Monica: Phoebe knows about us and she's just trying to freak us out. That's the only explanation for it.
Chandler: OK. But what about my pinchable butt and my bulging biceps... SHE KNOWS.

(Phoebe is about to "seduce" Chandler)
Rachel: Okay? Whoa, wait! (She undoes one button on Phoebe's dress.)
Phoebe: Good idea!
Rachel: Yeah, oh wait! (She goes for another one.)
Phoebe: Oh now, don't give away the farm!

Ross says "I take thee, Rachel" instead of Emily.
TOW Ross's Wedding - s04e24

Minister: Now Ross, repeat after me. I Ross...
Ross: I Ross...
Minister: Take thee, Emily...
Ross: Take thee, Rachel... Emily! (A slight chuckle.) Emily.

And then the camera made a zoom into Rachel's face... and fade to black. End of Season 4.
The wait for Season 5 was unbearable!

Best Listal Photo

Average listal rating (61 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 0
Jennifer Aniston

She has a lot of great pictures here, it was very difficult to choose one... so I choose two!

On this one she looks really sexy on black and white.

(added by billycostigan)

And this one I choose it because I never saw her this way and caught my attention.

(added by Flá)
Courteney Cox

Here I also chose two...

I liked this photo because she looks so natural and innocent.

(added by Danie)

And this one because she doesn't look innocent at all, and I like how her eyes stand out.

(added by isa ♥)

Average listal rating (631 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 0
Lisa Kudrow

I love how bright she looks in this photo.

(added by Flá)

(added by fango)

Average listal rating (225 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
Matt Le Blanc

I love those greys in his hair, he looks so mature and sexy.

(added by tartan_skirt)


This is my tribute to my favorite TV show ever.
I watched every single episode. I remember all the lines. I have all seasons on DVD. I laugh every time I watch the sames episodes, and cry with the same scenes.
Always compare other sitcoms with FRIENDS and I know there will never be one like it... "they could try... but they would not be successful."

Should I warn that there are a lot of SPOILERS here? I guess I have, for those who want to watch it for the first time.


I recently made a list with all cast of Friends, check it out!!

Amazing Job!! but I have a single question ..
When I press on the first item, it goes to my friend list .. How did u do that ??
Posted: 7 years ago at Jul 2 11:16
Aghhh!!! REALLLY enjoyed reading this list!!!! (: LOVE FRIENDS... (and am now so soooo tempted to go and start watching the whole lot again for the... (millionth?...I've lost count!) time!!!
Posted: 7 years ago at Jul 2 12:06
Just recently watched the shark episode. Chandler's "Oh, who am I kidding? Pay-per-view porn!" line alone makes it NOT the worst episode ever but not the best either. Plus, Paul Rudd's second(?) appearance as Mike is some funny stuff.

Btw, I don't even know which one's the worst episode. I don't focus on such things :) Well, the ones with recycled clips are pretty much... recycled clips.
Posted: 7 years ago at Jul 2 13:57
"I watched every single episode. I remember all the lines. I have all seasons on DVD. I laugh every time I watch the sames episodes, and cry with the same scenes.
Always compare other sitcoms with FRIENDS and I know there will never be one like it... "

Totally agree with you! there will never be anything like FRIENDS ever again!!
Posted: 7 years ago at Jul 2 14:46
Mejo ♥♫I wanted to put Friends as first item, and this was a persons list, so I couldn't do that. But I looked Friends as a person anyway (just in case) and there is! the only thing is that this item takes you to your Listal friends, not the TV Show (and it wasn't me who added this item to Listal) :)

Soleiloquy, if I'm responsible for you to see the show again, my job is done! LOL

Larri, of course there are no worst episodes! That's why I said "one of my least favorites." The Rudd appearance was cool and totally agree about the ones with recycled clips!

eMJei Me too!!

Gaby Never ever again, Gaby, never again!!

THANKS A MILLION guys for all the comments and votes!!
