10 of our favourite moments in Friends

“I'll be there for you...”

By Alex McCarthy
Friends is one of the most iconic TV shows of all time.
The series followed the lives of six best friends - Monica (Courtney Cox), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Ross (David Schwimmer), Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc).
We look back at 10 of the funniest moments from our favourite nineties sitcom.

1. The one where Monica donned a raw turkey

After upsetting Chandler, Monica put a raw turkey on her head, complete with novelty glasses, and did a little dance. The dance worked and Chandler ended up confessing his love for Monica.

8. The one with Ross' terrible tan

After admiring Monica's spray tan, Ross decided to try it out for himself but he had many issues with the spray tan machine. This came down to the fact that he was using the "Mississipi method" when he counted!
