“Friends” may have wrapped its final season over ten years ago, but the beloved ’90s sitcom is still one of the most-watched TV series of all time to this very day. The Emmy-winning comedy first premiered in 1994 on NBC and ran for nearly a decade with ten seasons before it ended in 2004. While it may no longer be on the air (though it is available to stream) the loyal following and fan base “Friends” amassed hasn’t diminished in the slightest. In fact, the timeless series has garnered a new generation of fans thanks to becoming available on streaming services like Amazon Prime, HBO Max, and previously, Netflix.
Following the lives of six friends living in New York City—-Chandler Bing, Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, and Ross Geller—the series was chock-full of memorable one-liners, endless banter at Central Perk, quotable catchphrases, and plenty of relatable relationship drama (the show did coin the phrase “we were on a break,” after all). “Friends” also became especially well-known for their iconic holiday episodes. In fact, some of “Friends'” best scenes from the entire series’ history stem from their Thanksgiving episodes, whether it’s the episode when Rachel accidentally makes a shepherd’s pie-trifle hybrid for the group’s Turkey Day dessert or the one when Monica gets an eye injury from a piece of ice and Chandler is stuck in a box as a grown-up time-out for kissing Joey’s girlfriend at the time.
Oh, and who can forget about the iconic episode when Ross dresses up as the Holiday Armadillo for Christmas?
