The One with George Stephanopoulos – Season 1, Episode 4
This episode saw Joey and Chandler take Ross to a hockey game to divert his mind from Carol as that day marked the anniversary of him first sleeping with her.

The One With the Embryos – Season 4, Episode 12
While this episode saw Pheobe getting her uterus examined to become the mother of her half brother’s kids, it also showed the others enjoy (well not everyone) seemingly harmless game implantation of Jeopardy. This ‘Rachel and Monica vs. Chandler and Joey’ game, we saw the four answer questions about each other to see who knows the other better and get the keys to Monica’s apartment. We all had a hearty laugh when Rachel jumped up and down, yelling, “He’s a Transponster” when asked what Chandler does.
The One with All the Wedding Dresses – Season 4, Episode 20
Ross is all set to walk down the aisle with Emily and the bride’s wedding dress is in Monica’s flat. After being tempted a lot, she tries the dress tries on Emily’s wedding dress and then just doesn’t want to take it off. While a pregnant Pheobe joins in on her own, the duo convinces Rachel to do the same to lift her mood. Also showing Rachel’s attempts to talk Joshua into marriage and Chandler take Joey to a sleep clinic, there is no chance you will be sad after seeing this FRIENDS episode.
The One with the Engagement Picture – Season 7, Episode 5
Monica and Chandler are all set to take their vows, and the Geller matriarch wants a pic of the couple to put in the papers leading to one of Chandler’s hilarious moments. While he has great difficulty smiling in front of the camera, we can’t help but laugh our hearts out. The episode also is fun as we see Joey teache Tag how to pick up women.
Some of our other favourite FRIENDS episodes to make us forget our worries and cheer us up are ‘The One With the Rumor’ that has a special appearance by Brad Pitt, ‘The One Where Ross Got High’ and obviously the first episode where we are introduced the six besties.
