  • When it comes to bingeable TV, there's nothing quite like Friends.

  • NBC's hit sitcom has been off the air for well over a decade, but for some fans, it's

  • still number one on their streaming queue.

  • From jokes that never fail to land to emotional moments that resonate just as much as ever,

  • Friends is an easy show to watch with a lot of payoff packed into each episode.

  • Even so, there are some scenes that don't hold up quite as well as others, and maybe

  • never did.

  • For better or worse, mostly worse, here are the parts of Friends that are impossible to

  • forget for all the wrong reasons.

  • Ross hits on Cassie

  • Let's face it.

  • Ross could be a bit of a creep sometimes.

  • Never was that more true than when his cousin Cassie comes into town for Monica and Chandler's

  • wedding, and Ross can't control himself.

  • It's bad enough that he once kissed Chandler's mom and went on a date with Rachel's sister,

  • but making a move on his own flesh and blood?

  • His inner monologue is about as gross as it gets.

  • "Oh, I know that look.

  • Forget it.

  • I want it.

  • She wants it.

  • I'm going in."

  • Pretty hard to root for him to find true love after that foul flirtation.

  • Phoebe's rat babies

  • Phoebe has had some pretty cringeworthy moments on the show, but perhaps the most insufferable

  • is when she adopts a litter of rat babies that are delivered in her kitchen cabinet

  • after Mike terminates their mother.

  • Mike tries to play nice about it all..

  • "Yeap.

  • We have rat babies now."

  • But the part when he has to explain to her that the rats will mate with one another irrespective

  • of their sibling status is too ditzy to endure.

  • "That's math I can't even do!"

  • Joey can't speak French

  • Joey has a lot of moments of doing dumb things, and most of the time, it's hilarious.

  • "Can I just stop you for a second.

  • When people do this...I don't really know what that means."

  • But the show takes it too far when Joey tries to learn French from Phoebe and can't even

  • repeat the simplest of phrases.

  • "Great!

  • OK, faster.

  • Je."

  • "Je"

  • "Ma"

  • "Ma"

  • "Pelle.

  • Je m'appelle!"

  • "Me poo poo!"

  • Sure, Phoebe's frustrated reactions are comedy gold

  • "You're notagainyou're NOT SPEAKING FRENCH!!!"

  • But dumbing him down this much is pretty low, even by Joey's standards.

  • Rachel pretends to smoke

  • Smoking was a pretty regular subject of Friends, thanks to Chandler quitting and picking back

  • up the habit so many times throughout the series.

  • But things go pretty off the rails when Rachel decides to take it up to spend more time with

  • her boss and co-worker so that she doesn't get edged out of work decisions.

  • Not only is it frustrating to watch her debase herself to impress others, but it doesn't

  • even work.

  • "So, okay.

  • So you'll come with me on the Paris trip."

  • "Aw, man!"

  • So much for her being a role model.

  • Joey and Rachel try to do it

  • Rather than giving fans what they really wanted between Ross and Rachel, things went bananas

  • altogether in the final seasons as Rachel and Joey struck up a romance.

  • It's awkward enough when Joey falls in love with Rachel while she's pregnant, but when

  • she eventually returns his affection and they try to make something of it, well, the chemistry

  • is not convincing at all.

  • The only good thing that comes out of it is Ross' drunken rant about being totally okay

  • with it ..

  • "To loveahh love."

  • They try and fail to take their hook-up to the next level.

  • "I'll show you how we do it."

  • "No, no, you kneed me in my misters."

  • It might've been the 10th season, with the showrunners saving Ross and Rachel's reunion

  • 'til the very end, but this was a major misfire and is almost unbearable to watch.

  • Of course, those were only five bad moments in a show full of truly excellent moments.

  • So how do you pick the top five most excellent scenes from Friends?

  • We're going to try!

  • The one where they don't know they know

  • Friends was usually at its best when all six characters were huddled together on the orange

  • couch or hanging out in the big purple apartment.

  • But every once in a while, they broke off into individual adventures that were downright

  • hysterical.

  • Early on in Season 5, Chandler and Monica are desperate to hide their budding romantic

  • relationship from the others because they fear talking about it might ruin everything.

  • Poor Joey has to spend weeks covering for them, but eventually, Rachel and Phoebe figure

  • things out for themselves....

  • "Chandler and Monica!

  • Chandler and Monica!"

  • "Oh my God!"

  • "Ahhh!

  • Chandler and Monica!"

  • "Oh my God!"

  • "Oh my God, my eyes!"

  • "Phoebe!"

  • Instead of merely confronting the couple for keeping this a secret, Phoebe pretends to

  • be interested in starting up her own tryst with Chandler.

  • Monica realizes they're being toyed with right away, and decides to play along.

  • "They don't know that we know that they know, so..."

  • "Ah, yes.

  • The messers become the messees!"

  • Thing escalate pretty spectacularly from there, and between the comedic timing of the cast

  • and the sheer ridiculousness of their commitment to this caper, it's an all-timer.

  • The one with the Europe story

  • There are a lot of great scenes surrounding Rachel's surprise pregnancy revelation, from

  • Phoebe's wacky cover-up effort to the group's hunt to find out who the father is to Ross'

  • hilarious reaction to the news that their prophylactics of choice didn't work.

  • But when Ross reveals that he accidentally taped his fateful night with Rachel to settle

  • the question of who initiated the encounter, well, it's peak TV in more ways than one.

  • "I'm so happy."

  • On the day of their hook-up, Ross had been so hard up that he turned to Joey for some

  • seduction pointers and learned a fake story about a Europe trip that always seems to seal

  • the deal for Joey. Ross then tries it and still bombs on his date.

  • "I was hiking along the foothills of Mount Tibidabo."

  • "I think it's Tibi-DAH-bo."

  • "OKAY DO YOU WANT TO TELL THE STORY?!"

  • Joey refuses to accept that it's the story's fault Ross crashed and burned and advises

  • Ross to practice his lines with a camcorder to review his storytelling skills.

  • But Ross gets interrupted by Rachel, who comes along to get his help addressing Monica and

  • Chandler's wedding invitations.

  • "Did you do it on our invitations?"

  • Even though up to now everyone's been convinced Ross initiated things, the footage then shows

  • Rachel starting TO TELL a familiar story...

  • "Ross, did I ever tell you about the time I went backpacking through Western Europe?"

  • And the reactions from the couch crowd said it all.

  • Evolution is a theory

  • Phoebe Buffay might've seemed a bit ditzy at times, but when she was on, she was on.

  • Never was that more true than when she decided to challenge one of Ross Geller's most sacred

  • scientific principles: evolution.

  • "It's just, you knowmonkeys, Darwin.

  • I think it's a nice story, it's just a little too easy."

  • Ross can't handle the idea that she doesn't agree with the finding, so he puts on his

  • Ph.D. cap and starts collecting evidence to prove it to her.

  • He doesn't get the reaction he's hoping for because Phoebe refuses to budge and insteads

  • hit back with some surprisingly salient points.

  • "Wasn't there a time when the brightest minds in the world believed that the earth was flat?"

  • "You can't admit there's a teeny tiny possibility that you could be wrong about this?"

  • With so much empirical evidence in her corner, Ross has no choice but to concede, and Phoebe's

  • reaction is even more humiliating than her mastery of the argument.

  • "I can't believe you caved."

  • "What?"

  • "You just abandoned your whole belief system!"

  • "Before I didn't agree with you, but at least I respected you."

  • Ross is defeated and embarrassed, and Phoebe's status as a secret genius is finally revealed.

  • "That was fun.

  • So, who's hungry?"

  • The one with the severed toe

  • Some of the funniest moments on Friends don't

  • take place in the present, but rather, are revealed via flashbacks.

  • In Season 5's Thanksgiving episode, we find out that Chandler's nubbin isn't his only

  • physical deformity.

  • The episode features several flashbacks, including one with Joey getting his head stuck in a

  • turkey and Phoebe losing some limbs in another lifetime.

  • More importantly, we learn that once-overweight Monica only got into shape after overhearing

  • Chandler call her fat.

  • When his reaction to her revenge body isn't punishing enough the following year, Monica

  • turns to Rachel for some help.

  • "I want him to be like naked and I want to point at him, and I want to laugh."

  • "Okay, that we may be able to do."

  • Rachel gives her some solid tips on how to seduce a guy in simple ways, but Monica must

  • miss a few key details of the discussion because her attempt to replicate the moves goes horribly

  • wrong.

  • Not only does she look ridiculous, but she ultimately drops a knife right onto Chandler's

  • toe and fails to bring it to the hospital for reattachment.

  • The best bit comes when we learn of the social damage his injury caused all those years ago.

  • "That's why for an entire year people called me Sir Limps-A-Lot?"

  • Ouch.

  • Ross and Rachel finally kiss

  • This moment would probably top most Friends' fans all-time favorite lists, and it may well

  • be one of the most iconic moments of televisionever.

  • In the show's second season, the chemistry that's been slowly building between Ross and

  • Rachel finally comes to a head.

  • Once Ross finds out that Rachel's been harboring a secret crush on him, after he's held a torch

  • for her for years, the two have a passionate argument and part waysbut then their

  • connection is too magnetic to deny, and they come right back together again to share a

  • kiss at long last.

  • The smooch is long overdue and doesn't even signal the start of anything long-term between

  • them.

  • Ross and Rachel's road to forever would prove to be a lot more complicated than just this,

  • but this was the moment that the two proved they were the endgame couple of the entire

  • show.

  • Or as Phoebe later explains

  • "See?

  • He's her lobster."
