20 of the Most Unforgettable Scenes from ‘Friends’


Every now and then, something or someone comes along and changes an aspect of life as we know it. On Sept. 22, 1994, the first episode of the hit sitcom Friends aired and it changed the sitcom industry as we knew it.

Many shows after that have tried to capture the spirit that the show had and the chemistry between the cast members, but there remains only one Friends.

Endless pleas have been made by every single fan on the face of the Earth for a reunion, but to no avail. Fine, we can’t have a reunion, but we’ll always have those scenes that are engraved in our memories. Some made us crack up with laughter while others had us reaching for the tissues.
