10 FRIENDS EPISODES TO START THE NEW YEAR

So it happened. It is now 2015. You probably came up with a long list of New Year resolutions, something including losing weight, getting a better job…you know the usual stuff to better yourself as an adult. Except Netflix released the full Friends series, making it almost impossible to be responsible this year. And since we too are irresponsible, we have provided you our top 10 episodes you should watch today-the first year of 2015. Lets be irresponsible together, watch hours of Friends, and push the gym membership card aside.

 

THE ONE WITH THE ROUTINE (SEASON 6, EPISODE 10)

 

Perfect for the New Year hoorah, this gem of an episode demonstrates just how socially awkward Ross and Monica are when they do their “routine” dance at the filming of a New Year’s Eve TV segment. Never thought fictional characters could embarrass you? This is proof.

THE ONE WITH MONICA AND CHANDLER’S WEDDING: PART 2 (SEASON 7, EPISODE 24)

Start this year with a tear jerker/best Friends revelation. Monica and Chandler finally tie the knot, even after Chandler had cold feet the last minute from Part 1. This was all due to a mysterious positive pregnancy test found in Monica’s bathroom which actually belongs to Rachel. What?!

THE ONE WHERE RACHEL HAS A BABY: PART 2 (SEASON 8, EPISODE 24)

 

After two days of labor and an unexpected (and unwanted) visit from Janice, its finally Rachel’s time to give birth to her little girl Emma. After, she lays there freaking out that this is the beginning of her life as a single mother, and Joey accidentally proposes to her. Yeah, people can accidentally propose apparently.

 

THE ONE WHERE EVERYONE FINDS OUT (SEASON 5, EPISODE 14)

 

Chandler and Monica were sleeping together secretly when they first got together, because its Chandler for christ’s sake. So this secret starts unraveling once Joey finds out, and like a domino effect, everyone finds out, welcoming the next group couple since the train wreck of Rachel and Ross.

 

THE ONE WHERE ROSS FINDS OUT (SEASON 2, EPISODE 7)

 

This is the episode with possibly the best kiss of the series. Ross hears Rachel’s drunken message professing her feelings about Ross, and he comes to see her at Central Perks where Rachel gives him a romantic kiss outside, officially starting the messiest relationship of Friends.

 

THE ONE WITH THE PROM VIDEO (SEASON 2, EPISODE 14)

 

The gang looks at old home videos Monica found, including a video of Monica and Rachel’s prom. After cracking jokes at Monica’s weight, Rachel’s nose and Ross’ mustache, the gang realizes just how much Ross really liked Rachel after it is revealed that Rachel apparently turned Ross down at prom. Rachel kisses Ross, making him feel better and starting another chapter of the Ross and Rachel story.

 

THE ONE WITH THE EMBRYOS (SEASON 4, EPISODE 12)

 

Joey and Chandler are teamed up as they try to defeat Rachel and Monica in a game of trivia. The prize? Monica’s apartment. So when Rachel and Monica can’t explain what Chandler actually does at his job, Monica and Rachel lose and must switch apartments with Joey and Chandler.

 

THE ONE WITH THE ROSS’ SANDWICH (SEASON 5, EPISODE 9)

 

Monica is known for making an amazing turkey sandwich using Thanksgiving leftovers, so when Ross’ sandwich disappears at work, Phoebe advises he leaves a nasty note on the company’s refrigerator. The note comes off as threatening, so when he has a talk with his worried boss and finds out he was the one who stoled the sandwich, Ross loses it.

 

THE ONE WITH THE ICK FACTOR (SEASON 1, EPISODE 22)

 

Monica is dating a younger guy Ethan, and its surprisingly going well. Monica lies about her age since Ethan said he’s 22, and is oddly not weirded out when Ethan reveals he’s a virgin before they have sex for the first time. It’s nothing to worry about, until Ethan reveals later that he’s actually a senior in high school. The virginity thing should’ve been a red flag Monica.

 

THE LAST ONE (SEASON 10, EPISODE 18)

 

Ok, honestly, this is the real tear-jerker. The last episode of Friends was perfect because it wasn’t just an episode of montages, it was an episode where everyone went their separate ways. Chandler and Monica are moving to the suburbs, Ross and Rachel are trying it out again, Phoebe is a newlywed and Joey is Joey. Perfectly ties any loose ends and gives you a finale that is surprisingly believable.
