Over the last couple of decades, Friends has become synonymous when it comes to conversations around sitcoms. Whether we talk about moments where Chandler and Joey gave us complete friendship goals, Ross and Rachel's 'we are on – we are off' relationship moved us to tears, or that we shared the same love-hate relationship with our siblings as Ross and Monica did, this sitcom is one of those few that we can watch over and over again. Over countless laughs and some tears too, that Manhattan skyline, the purple door and the Central Perk couch has been etched in our memories for a lifetime.

Today, we reminisce about this iconic show and even though it was very tough for us to pick five out of the many brilliant episodes we have seen over ten seasons, that you absolutely cannot miss. Watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S in Mega Muhahaha Marathon, only on Comedy Central.

This episode was an all-time favourite for fans as heartthrob Brad Pitt guest-starred in this iconic Thanksgiving episode. What made the episode even more special was the fact that he was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time! Ironically, he was a part of an "I Hate Rachel" club in high school, because of which many secrets of the gang are revealed. With Joey struggling to eat every morsel of the giant turkey Monica made to the gang cracking up, this episode is unforgettable.

While Chandler is known and loved for his witty and quirky one-liners, this episode uncovers a different side to his otherwise laid back, commitment-phobic personality.
