Can you believe it’s been two decades since Chandler, Joey, Rachel, Ross, Monica and Phoebe first graced our small screens with their trivial dramas and odd, but loving friendships? Neither can we!

Luckily, thanks to reruns, YouTube, certain streaming services, and DVD box sets, they’re never too far away.

And before you ask, yes, they are obviously spoilers. Seriously, get a grip.

And once you're done laughing and crying your eyes out, tell us what your favourite moment was from the show.

Ross and Rachel’s first kiss
We all waited AGES for this to happen, and when it finally did, it was perfect!

When Phoebe first did Smelly Cat
What ARE they feeding you?!

Monica’s turkey dance
While this sounds gross ad horribly claustrophobic, it was one of those genuinely laugh out loud moments on the show. And then Chandler said “I love you” for the first time and we all just melted.

When Joey wore all of Chandler’s clothes
Could he BE any more layered?

Ross and the red sweater
Monica, Phoebe and Joey go the entire episode trying to figure out who the father of Rachel’s baby is, after Joey reveals ‘some guy’ left his red sweater at their apartment a month before. Then, it’s revealed that it was Ross all along.

Phoebe and the lobster theory
You have to picture lobsters.

When Will (Brad Pitt) came to Thanksgiving
This one might be a bit weird, considering that they’ve since married and divorced, but Brad Pitt’s appearance as Will, the former high school classmate who really hated Rachel, was hilarious.

When Monica proposed to Chandler

Monica and the erogenous zones
“Seven! Seven! SEVEN!”

Chandler and Joey vs Rachel and Monica
The game? A trivia quiz to see who knows who better. The prize? The guys have to get rid of their pets, or the girls have to give up their apartment.

When Joey had to learn to speak French
If you’ve ever struggled learning a foreign language, then you will totally get this.

When Phoebe changed her name to Princess Consuela Bananahammock

Rachel’s English trifle
There are no words for how awful this sounds.

When Rachel got off the plane
Once again, *TEARS*

When Ross got really upset about his sandwhich
Can you believe someone just ate the only good thing going on in his life?

When Monica And Chandler find out they’re having twins
...in the delivery room. Awkward.

Ross and the leather pants
So Ross phones Joey for help from his girlfriend’s bathroom when his (horrible) leather pants won’t go back up. It wasn’t a good idea

Ross says the wrong name
At his wedding to Emily, Ross says “I take thee Rachel” at the altar instead of Emily, and it is so cringeworthy no matter how many times you’ve seen it.

Baby got back
New parents will do almost anything to hear the sound of their child’s laughter, including singing parts of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back.

When Ross gets a tan
And it ends badly. Very badly
