The one with all the Friends Thanksgiving episodes


The best things about Thanksgiving? Food, football, and the Thanksgiving episodes of Friends, of course. So I've a created a comprehensive, in-depth look at each episode and ranked them accordingly, just for you.

You like how I sounded all technical? 

10// The One With Rachel's Other Sister, season nine: If I had it my way, none of the episodes would be ranked last, but that would be confusing. In season nine's episode, Rachel's other sister Amy comes to visit and wants to take care of Emma if Ross and Rachel die. Also, Chandler breaks Monica's plates. Yikes.  Perfectly quotable moments in this one, although it's not on my top list.

9// The One With the Rumor, season eight: AKA The One With Brad Pitt, who's character Will comes to Thanksgiving dinner, and it's revealed that he was in an "I Hate Rachel Green" club with Ross in high school. My personal favorite quote from this one is "Here come the meat sweats."

8// The One With Chandler In a Box, season four: This is the one after Chandler kisses Joey's girlfriend Kathy, and the only way Joey will forgive him is by spending Thanksgiving dinner in a box. Memorable quote: "Airhole! Airhole!"

7// The One With the List, season two: Season two is the only one without an actual Thanksgiving episode, and I did some digging for reasons why but I couldn't find a definitive one. There are mentions of the holiday, however, as Monica makes "mockolate" to have at dinner. Extra points for all the Ross and Rachel fluff.

6// The One With the Late Thanksgiving, season ten: Phoebe enters Emma into a baby beauty pageant and she and Rachel end up being late for dinner. Actually, everyone ends up being late except for Monica and Chandler, who {like always} are hosting, and they feel unappreciated and decide to lock everyone out. This is the last Thanksgiving episode ever which gets lots of sentimental points.

5// The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs, season seven: This season is one of my favorites, so extra points for that. When Phoebe's babysitting a neighbor's dog and tries to bring him to dinner, it's revealed that Chandler hates dogs. The gang also plays "Chandler's Dumb States Game," which I would love to play one of these days, thank you very much. Favorite quote? "It's moo."

4// The One Where Underdog Gets Away, season one: Ah, the one where it all began. Everyone's Thanksgiving plans are ruined, and they all end up at Monica's. Also, the Underdog float gets away at the parade. Obviously. This one really sets the tone for the rest of the Thanksgiving episodes. Also, "Potatoes are ruined, potatoes are ruined, potatoes are ruined."

3// The One With the Thanksgiving Flashbacks, season five: This one is full of Thanksgivings past, including Monica trying to fake seduce Chandler back when he was in college. Every flashback is great. My favorite quote is definitely "There's a toe in my kitchen."

2// The One Where Ross Got High, season six: This one is full of secrets being revealed and gross desserts. And every minute of it is hilarious. "Hurricane Gloria didn't break the porch swing, Monica did!"

 1// The One With the Football, season three: By far my favorite Thanksgiving episode of the Thanksgiving episodes. Maybe it's because it's centered around football, I'm not really sure. What I do know is it's twenty two minutes of pure genius. Rachel goes long, Monica and Ross vie for the Gellar Cup, and the girls wonder if there's a league for football. Basically, it's all classic Friends shenanigans that deserves to be re-watched year after year.

Happy almost Thanksgiving!
