TOW My Top 10 FRIENDS Eps (S2)


It's been quite some time since I posted my top 10 Friends episodes from season 1. Most of you have probably long finished your Netflix binge fest. But, I'm still trucking along, because, I LOVE talking about the Central Perk gang.

E1 TOW Ross’ New Girlfriend

The Breakdown:

Ross comes back from China, with Julie, his new girlfriend. The problem? While he was away, Rachel found out that he loves her and realized that she loves him too.

Phoebe accidentally gives Monica a Dudley Moore haircut. And speaking if haircuts, I think this is the debut of “The Rachel”.

Joey recommends his family tailor to Chandler and Chandler returns with a disturbing tale.

Guest Stars:

Lauren Tom as Julie

Cosimo Fusco as Paulo

Quotables

Rachel: “Well isn’t that just kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck, fantastic?!”

Huh?

When Rachel comes back from the airport with Ross and Julie, it should be the same night as the episode before. But no one, but Rachel, is wearing the same outfit from the previous episode.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Watching Rachel seethe with jealousy over Ross and Julie is so relatable to any woman who has had to watch her crush be all lovey dovey with another broad.

After having his inseam taken, Chandler comes back to report to Joey that is in fact, NOT “how they do pants”.

E3 TOW Heckles Dies

The Breakdown

Up until this episode, we have only had maybe two other encounters with the girls’ downstairs neighbor, Mr. Heckles. If you recall, he complained a lot about all of the noise they made. Well, he dies and leaves all of his junk to the “noisy girls upstairs”.

As they are cleaning out the apartment, Chandler notices that his life has quite a few parallels of the Hermit Heckles and starts to fret that he will die alone also.

During all of this, Phoebe and Ross have an argument about evolution.

Guest Stars:

Larry Hankin as Mr. Heckles

Mike Hagerty as Mr. Treeger

Magee Wheeler as Janice

Quotables

Chandler: “If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids will walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

Huh?

In s1, while Phoebe and Rachel are looking for Marcel, Mr. Heckles apartment is on the opposite side of the hallway as his apartment now. Which also means that he wasn’t directly under them when he would originally complained about the noise.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Ross gets so upset and makes it his mission ot make Phoebe believe that evolution is the "only possibility".

E7 TOW Ross Find Out

The Breakdown

After receiving a drunken “I am over you” message from Rachel, Ross finally gets let in on the secret.

Phoebe is dating a guy that is taking things way too slow, for her liking.

Jobless Monica, tries to help Chandler shed some unwanted pounds.

Guest Star(s):

Arye Gross as Michael

Quotables

Ross: “You’re over me? When were you...under me?”

Huh?

Chandler has supposedly put on some weight. But, he’s actually lost weight since the first season. Which, I’m pretty sure has something to do with Matthew Perry’s alcoholism during this time.

Ross and Julie, who don’t live together, were planning on sharing custody of a cat. That’s a dumb idea.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Rachel leaving her drunken message. Rachel attacking Ross in order to get the phone away from him. And Ross and Rachel’s FIRST KISS!!!

E11 TOW The Lesbian Wedding

The Breakdown

Susan and Carol are getting married. And Ross, being all Ross like, is making it about him and refuses to go to the wedding.

Phoebe’s massage client, Rose, dies on her massage table and Phoebe believes that Rose’s soul went into her and won’t leave until she “sees everything”.

Rachel’s mom visits with news that she is divorcing Rachel’s dad.

Guest Star(s):

Jane Sibbett as Carol

Jessica Hecht as Susan

Marlo Thomas as Mrs. Green

Quotables

Monica: “Do you want me to cry? Is that what you want?! Do you wanna SEE ME CRY?!”

Huh?

There is a brown haired baby, posing as Ben, in the first scene.

Susan’s hat. I know it was the 90s, but come on!

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Playing the cello

Why So Great?

I like Phoebe as an old Jewish woman. And we learn about Smell The Fart Acting.

E13 The One After the Superbowl part 2

The Breakdown

Marcel is in town shooting a movie and Ross wants to spend some quality time with him. Yes. Marcel IS the monkey. While the gang is on set, Joey tries to get a role in the movie, Chandler runs into a childhood friend, and Monica and Rachel fight over Jean Claude van Damme.

Guest Star(s):

Julia Roberts as Susie “Underpants” Moss

Jean Claude van Damme as Himself

Quotables

Phoebe: “You know, if we were in prison, you guys would be like, my bitches.”

Huh?

Joey or Ross could have given Chandler their jacket to wear out of the restaurant. Taking off the stall door was a bit dramatic.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

It surprises me how quick Monica and Rachel are, to resort to fisticuffs.

E14 TOW The Prom Video

The Breakdown

Mr. and Mrs. Gellar are turning Monica’s old room into a gym, so they drop off some boxes of Monica’s things. One of the boxes contains a video tape from Monica and Rachel’s prom night.

With his Days of Our Lives money, Joey tries to be nice by buying a gold friendship bracelet “from the Liberace House of Crap” for Chandler.

Ross is having a difficult time accepting that Rachel wants nothing more to do with him, romantically.

Guest Star(s):

Elliott Gould as Mr. Gellar

Christina Pickles as Mrs. Geller

Best Line

Phoebe: “See? He’s her lobster!”

Huh?

Why is Chandler so surprised by Monica’s weight and Rachel’s nose, when in later episodes, it’s clear he spent a couple of Thanksgivings with them? ALSO, he seems shocked about Ross’ music when they were in a “band” together.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Monica’s fat suit. Rachel’s old nose. Ross’ afro. And Rachel realizes that Ross, is in fact, her lobster.

E16 TOW Joey Moves Out

The Breakdown

Joey moves into a fancy new apartment.

Phoebe and Rachel get tattoos.

Monica and Richard finally come out to her parents. And the presence of Tom Selleck just plays up the fact that all of the Friends are kinda small people.

Guest Star(s):

Tom Selleck as Richard

Quotables

Chandler: “Can. Open. Worms. EVERYWHERE.”

Huh?

Was Rachel’s tattoo ever talked about or seen again?

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Could you imagine, dating one of your dad’s best friends and then having to tell him about it? No. Of course you can’t. Unless your dad happens to be friends with Tom Selleck. Plus, watching Joey and Chandler break up, makes you appreciate their relationship so much more.

E18 TOW Dr. Ramorey Dies

The Breakdown

Chandler has had Eddie as his roommate for a few weeks now, so he tries to get to know him a little better. He finds out that Eddie is kind of a psycho.

Joey insults the Days of Our Lives writers and gets himself killed off the show.

Monica & Richard and Rachel & Ross have the alway awkward, “How Many Lovers” conversation.

Guest Star(s):

Adams Goldberg as Eddie

Brian Posehn as Courier

Quotables

Chandler: “Yes, your name came up. In a conversation that terrified me to my very soul.”

Huh?

Why keep condoms all the way in the bathroom and not in your bedroom?

Phoebe Sings: “And the rest of the rats played maracas.”

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Adam Goldberg is hilarious as a psycho roommate.

E21 TOW The Bullies

The Breakdown

Ross and Chandler get punked out of Central Perk. Monica, still unemployed, and decides to play the stock market. Also, Phoebe gets up the courage to go meet her dad, but is disappointed again.

Guest Star(s):

Peter DeLuise as Carl

Nicky Katt as Arthur

Giovanni Ribisi as Frank Jr.

Quotables

Rachel: “Ok Joey. The dog will lick himself, but not touch your sandwich. What does that tell you?”

Huh?

Phoebe, Joey and Rachel sat out in front of Phoebe’s dads house, in a taxi cab, ALL DAY and no one came to question them? Let an unknown car sit in front of my house for 10 mins and I’m asking for license and registration.

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

Watching Ross and Chandler try to make cappuccino at home, Pre-Keurig, is what makes this episode, for me.

E22 TOW The Two Parties

The Breakdown

It’s Rachel’s birthday! The gang throws her a surprise party. Since Rachel’s parents can’t be civil during their divorce, so they end up having two separate parties at the same time.

Guest Star(s):

Marlo Thomas as Mrs. Green

Ron Leibman as Dr. Green

Quotables

Phoebe: “Fancy parties are only fun if you’re fancy on the inside and I’m just not sure we are.”

Huh?

When Chandler takes Mrs. Green’s coat he has an unnecessary look of disgust on his face. You got a problem with chivalry Chandler?

Rachel thanks Ross for giving her earrings for her birthday. Ross tells her that she can exchange them if she wants. Soooo, if Ross knows, at this point, that Rachel is known for exchanging gifts, why is he so shocked when it’s mentioned in one of the future Christmas episodes?

Gunther is wearing a wedding ring at one of the parties. Is Gunther married?

Phoebe Sings: Nope

Ugly Naked Guy Sighting: Nope

Why So Great?

All of the shenanigans are very Three’s Company. And I love Three’s Company.

...stay tuned for Season 3.
