If you are a fan of Netflix you have no doubt heard that on January 1st the full series of FRIENDS became available on Netflix. For anyone who was a teen or young adult in the 90s and the early 2000s (like me), this is likely a show that has become legendary. In my circles anyways, scenes from FRIENDS are still quoted and laughed at on a regular basis.
As a mom in my early 30s, there are certain scenes that for one reason or another make me literally laugh out loud. In this post I will share some of my absolute favourite moments of Ross, Rachel, Pheobe, Joey, Monica and Chandler.

Top Ten FRIENDS Episodes For Mom
The One Where Rachel Is Late.
This scene will likely make you flashback to at some point during your pregnancy. Even if you weren’t ‘late’, the last month of pregnancy feels impossible to most women. That being said, as someone who was a week late TWICE (and had 10+ lb babies to carry inside) I can tell you, that Rachel’s feelings were accurate.
The One Where Joey Gets Monica’s Turkey Stuck On His Head.
This scene is poingent for me specifically because I have 4 boys. Joey’s childlike behaviour takes me back to many moments in my life as a mother. Pheobe also states “Monica is gonna totally freak out’. Replace Monica with Mom and you will replay a conversation I have heard in the other room more times that I should.
The Apartment Bet.
This one is not specifically ‘mom’ funny, but is one of my personal favourites. I love games and the writers had a brilliant idea with this one. However, when I play men vs. women, it doesn’t usually end this way.
The One With The Baby On The Bus.
Leading up to this scene, Chandler and Joey leave the baby on the bus and go to retreive him. This scene is classic. I cannot tell you how frequently well-meaning friends mix up my kids.
There’s A Bump.
During this episode Rachel is babysitting Ben when there is an incident. This is how I feel everytime something happens to a child in my care. Okay, maybe not quite this dramatically, but you get the point.
The One Where Ross and Rachel Argue About The Baby.
This scene could easily have been filmed in my home, prior to each of our three bio son’s births. Why can men just not agree?
The One Where No One Proposes.
The scene in this episode that I love is the unassuming, yet well-meaning Joey’s reaction to Rachel trying to breastfeed. Anyone who has tried to breastfeed a newborn, and anyone who has ever been near a newborn breastfeeding can relate (and laugh) at this scene.
The Last One.
This is a classic. I have never had twins, but I am an adoptive parent. Luckily we didn’t go through with quite a surprise when we welcomed our son into our lives, but this scene is still very funny.
The One With All The Wedding Dresses.
This is classic friends. There is something about girls and weddings. I know it’s kind of unrealistic, but still hilarious.
Do I Look Fat?
This episode has an incredible amount of great relationship advice from Ross and Rachel. ‘Whoa, you looked at her? You never look at her.’
