F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Part Uno

I absolutely love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. My favourite character was Phoebe Buffet because she is such a cuckoo and yet way smarter than Joey. I have been watching reruns of FRIENDS on dvd and no matter how many times I watched it I would still laugh my arse off. Monica with her obsession of cleaning things, Chandler always mistaken to be gay, Ross' s "we were on a break" excuse for cheating on Rachel, Rachel's hair (she's got such nice hair throughout the whole 10 seasons) and of course Joey's addiction to women and food. Here are some of my favourite episodes from seasons 2-5 :-
  • The One Where Ross Finds Out (Season 2)

Chandler enlists Monica as his personal fitness trainer. Phoebe can't figure out why her date won't sleep with her. Rachel leaves Ross a drunken phone message saying she's over him. The next morning, Ross retrieves his messages and argues with Rachel saying that she's too late because he's with Julie...then they kiss.

The one where Ross said: "You're over me? When were you...under me?"

  • The One With The Prom Video (Season 2)

Joey gives Chandler a gaudy gold bracelet, but he hates it. Phoebe shares her 'lobster' love theory with the gang. Monica plays a video of herself and Rachel preparing for their Senior Prom (Rachel's nose is pre-surgery and Monica is fat).In the video, Rachel gets upset when she thinks she's been stood up so Ross prepares to take her - but the date shows up. Rachel is moved by what she sees on the tape and kisses Ross passionately.

The one where Phoebe said: "He's her lobster!"

  • The One Where Eddie Won't Go (Season 2)

Chandler is freaked out by weird new flatmate Eddie and orders him to leave. But Eddie won't go. Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe read a female empowerment book called 'Be Your Own Windkeeper' and end up arguing with each other. Joey moves back in with Chandler and Eddie finally leaves.

The one where Rachel said: "How do you expect me to grow if you won't let me blow?"

  • The One With Chandler In A Box (Season 4)

Chandler spends Thanksgiving in a shipping crate as penance for kissing Joey's girlfriend Kathy. The gang give each other Secret Santa gifts and Ross torments Rachel about her habit of giving away gifts. She shows him all the stuff she saved from their relationship. Monica gets ice in her eye; the doctor turns out to be Richard's son who also becomes attracted to her.

The one where Ross said: "Hey, you know, Mon, if things works out with you and Richard's son, you'll be able to tell your kids that you slept with their grandfather."

  • The One With The Embryos (Season 4)

Phoebe has the embryos planted in her uterus. Monica and Rachel insist that they know Chandler and Joey better than the guys know them so Ross chairs a quiz to see who's right. If the girls win, the chick and the duck have to go. If the guys win, they get the girls' apartment...

The question the girls couldn't answer: "What is Chandler Bing's job?"

  • The One With The Thanksgiving Flashbacks (Season 5)

The gang talk about their worst Thanksgivings ever. Chandler learns that his father slept with the pool boy (1978); Phoebe twice loses an arm in past lives (1862 and 1915); Joey has his head in a turkey (1992); Chandler hurts Monica's feelings when she's fat (1987) but Monica gets even with him a year later when she's thin. Finally, Monica sticks a turkey on her head to cheer Chandler up and he tells her that he loves her.

The one where Joey said: "I am thankful for this beautiful fall we've been having. The other day I was at the bus stop and this lovely fall breeze came in out of nowhere and blew this chick's skirt right up...I'm also thankful for thongs."

  • The One Where Everybody Finds Out (Seaon 5)

Phoebe sees Chandler and Monica making love and tells Rachel. To get Monica to admit the truth, Phoebe hits on Chandler to make Monica jealous. However, Monica and Chandler figure out that Phoebe and Rachel know and decide to turn the tables on them. Eventually, Rachel and Phoebe figure out that Monica and Chandler know that they know and it all culminates in everybody knowing. Except Ross...until he looks out the window of his new apartment and sees Chandler and Monica making love.

The one where Phoebe said: "They're trying to mess with us? They don't know that we know they know we know!"

I'm a FRIENDS fanatic..well, not la that fanatic but I just love the show soooo much. I can watch the DVD so many times and still laugh like crazy.
Its hard to say who I like best..hmmm..I think maybe Chandler. His one-liner jokes are hillarious..
I cried when they showed the last episode. And was soooooooo happy when Rachel got back with Ross..
Best la..Nak tengok lagilah tonight :)

Seriously... spooky eh??
But then, i guess it's everyone fav...
However, u missed one episode (it's the highest rating episode ever in the history of F.R.I.E.N.D.S) - the one where Chandler proposed to Monica.. and everyone in the studio clapped and screamed like mad... (same goes to me.. but at home lah) hehehhe...

Trueblue - Woohooo!! I like Chandler too! Oh yeah I cried loads too masa final episode. It was truly a happy ending kan? I still cant forget Phoebe changing her name to Princess Consuela Bananahamoc. Hahahaha...And Mike asked her to call him Mr. Crapbag. Sooo funny!

Aidasyukri - Tulah!! Im sure they're gonna do a movie reunion kinda thing maybe in 5 or 10 yrs time. I miss FRIENDS too!

FnG - Oh yeah, tht one season 6 kan? I baru abis tengok season 5. Hehehe...Gonna start on season 6-10 soon. I was crying like mad when Monica got on one knee and tried to propose to Chandler and she said, "theres a reason why women dont do this"...sniff sniff...

trueblue said...

Hahah..I just watched that episode the other day. Pheobe can be so weird! There's so many funny episodes. Really hard to pick a favourite. You watched tak the 'Joey' sitcom? Not as funny as FRIENDS kan?

Cosmic_GurL said...

Trueblue - Yeah I watched Joey. Not so funny. Somehow Joey alone without Phoebe or Chandler doesnt work.

Pink-Fins said...

Cosmic_GurL said...

Pink-fins - Thanks Pinky darling...My fav line was when Rachel said: "How do you expect me to grow if you won't let me blow?" Hahahaha...so damn funny!
