Festa #1.1 – F.R.I.E.N.D.S. – Season 1

Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog festa! The festa is basically a set of posts that are released based on a single theme. It’s an idea I planned when I reached my blog’s second anniversary. I wanted to start it with something special, so I decided to do it on FRIENDS! And what better time to do it than now, when we have just crossed 25 years since the airing of this episode! In each post I’m going to cover my favorite moments in the season the post is based on! So without any more delays on my blabbering!

Episode 1 : “The One Where Monica Gets A Roommate”

This pilot episode is definitely hilarious. I think the first moment on its own was hilarious! A depressed Ross settles down and wishes he was married again only to have Rachel come in to Central Perk, suddenly in a wedding dress!

And to that we have Chandler add on “And I want a million dollars!” This scene really sets up a lot on Ross and Chandler at least!

When Ross Finds out Carol is pregnant.

Ross was having a tough time dealing with his divorce and the fact that Carol is a lesbian but now he finds out he’s going to be a dad? Poor Ross!

And to this whole scenario it’s the response from his friends that were hilarious !

Ross: (standing outside the door)…..Hi.

Monica: Wow. That is not a happy hi.

Ross: Carol’s pregnant.

Phoebe: (while everyone else is stunned) Ooh! I found it!

Monica: W-w-wh-… wha-… w-w-w-…

Ross: Yeah. Do that for another two hours, you might be where I am right about now. (He enters.)

Chandler: Kinda puts that whole pillow thing in perspective, huh, Mon?

Rachel: Well now, how-how do you fit into this whole thing?

Ross: Well, Carol says she and Susan want me to be involved, but if I’m not comfortable with it, I don’t have to be involved.. basically it’s entirely up to me.

Phoebe: She is so great! I miss her.

Monica: What does she mean by ‘involved’?

Chandler: I mean presumably, the biggest part of your job is done.

The dismembered thumb in the soda can.

Phoebe is already upset that her bank accidently deposited a thousand dollars into her account by accident and manages to give it to a lonely woman on the street. Only to get a soda can with a dismembered thumb in it, which led to the company giving her 7000 dollars as compensation!

Ross’s and Rachel’s laundry date.

Ross helps a laundry virgin, Each to separate her whites and colored clothes and fight off people who try to steal their saved machine. Like they say – “No suds, no save.”

Joey gets his big break.

– As Al Pacino’s butt!

Episode 7 : “The One With The Blackout”

There are just too many moments in this episode that are really funny.

Whether it be Joey’s candles.

Or Chandler stuck in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre which only Joey seems to understand!

Or the start of a budding relationshio between Ross and Rachel. 💜

Nana’s death and Ross’s retainers

Although it was sad with Nana dying, Ross did find his old retainers as they started going through Nana’s old things!

Ross battles with Susan for “belly time” and Joey as an ad model.

Hilarious as it is to watch Ross battles with Susan for belly time to talk with the baby, what was even more shocking was Joey’s joy in finally becoming an ad model.

Only for it be for VD.

Marcel- Ross’s New roommate.

Out of loneliness Ross decides to get a new roommate. A monkey by the name of Marcel. Everything goes fine, except with Monica as she’s upset about Marcel throwing feces at her.

Phoebe’s scientist from Minsk

Phoebe starts dating a scientist who unfortunately has to leave for Minsk.

Phoebe The Singer

We also see Phoebe’s debut at singing on the show as she sings for the customers at Central Perk


Also cue entry of Janice, into Chandler’s life!

Like she tells Chandler – “One of these days, it’s going to be your last chance with me.”

The Foosball table.

Chamfer and Joey finally reach an agreement on the furniture – a foosball table.

Them getting back at each other.

After Chandler accidently sees Each walking around without clothes,the friends take it upon each other to catch each other at similar situations which turns out to be really funny!

Episode 23 : “The One With The Birth”

The entire episode is hilarious with Ross and Susan bickering in the labour room finally getting locked inside the janitors room while Carol goes into active labor.

Or Joey just randomly helping a girl during her delivery or Phoebe singing at the reception of the hospital!

Rachel Finds out.

Finally Rachel Finds out about Ross’s feelings and goes to the airport to meet him only to find him returning with a woman who he’s interested in!
