Friends is one of my favorite shows! And I know I’m not alone in saying that. Friends has so many great episodes filled with funny moments, serious moments, weird moments, sweet moments…but above all, it’s a show that makes people laugh.
I love every episode, but there are certain ones that I watch over and over. Some are just classics, but some are more under the radar. If you haven’t seen a lot of Friends, check out some of the episodes below and see what you’ve been missing! If you already love it, take a look and reminisce!
