The Most Important Episodes Of 'Friends'

List Rules
Vote up the episodes that mattered the most to the series overall.

A sitcom about a group of 20-somethings who hang around and get on with their lives in funny and interesting ways might seem like standard TV fare now, but it all started with Friends. Many would argue the NBC program was one of the greatest '90s shows or even one of the best sitcoms ever. The series dominated the airwaves, and lives on in syndication and on streaming services. Friends influenced many other sitcoms after it went off the air in 2004.

Whether you're a fan of Joey, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Phoebe, or all of them equally, odds are a few of the best episodes that feature various members of the gang stand out more than most. There are plenty of hilarious episodes, and even some poignant ones, but also episodes that were so important to the development of the characters, they stand apart from the rest of the series.
