The Hills: New Beginnings Ashley Wahler Went to Make Friends

The Hills: New Beginnings star Ashley Wahler – who is married to fellow cast member and former The Hills and Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler – opened up recently about some of the reasoning behind joining the famous reality TV cast. She explained that one of the main reasons was to make friends.

Fans first met Jason on Laguna Beach, which aired in 2004 and followed the lives of affluent teenagers in Southern California, and were later re-introduced to him on The Hills. The spinoff focused mainly on cast member Lauren Conrad’s life in Los Angeles after she left high school. While Jason was known to be a player during his time on those shows – he was Conrad’s on-again/off-again love interest and was the reason she didn’t take the Teen Vogue internship in Paris – viewers will get to see a different side of him on the recently premiered The Hills: New Beginnings. In the nearly ten years since The Hills went off the air in 2009, Jason has gotten sober and met the love of his life, Ashley, with whom he shares a daughter, Delilah. He’s gone from heartbreaker to homemaker, and Ashley, who appears on the spinoff alongside her husband, is excited to show fans this softer side of him.

Ashley said she and Jason talked a lot about whether or not they should go on the show, but ultimately decided that they’ve “gone through so much” and are still happily married, and they wanted to share that experience with others. She told Cosmopolitan that It seemed like a no-brainer that right now, our society needs people that are going to try and help others,” referring to his battle with addiction. In addition to helping others, Ashley wanted to make friends, and it looks as though she succeeded. Ashley is seen posing with The Hills: New Beginnings co-stars (seen below via her personal Instagram) with the caption reading, “Love these crazy kids.”

Since filming started, the professional hairstylist and colorist said she’s gotten close with cast members Whitney Port and Mischa Barton, who starred in The O.C., which originally inspired Laguna Beach. While Barton was quiet and guarded at first, Ashley explained that she “plowed through.” She said she likes to get to know people “on a different level than just surface,” adding that she and Barton are close friends. Ashley added that she and Port also bonded because of the fact that they both lost their fathers.

While it sounds like Ashley decided to star in The Hills: New Beginnings for the right reasons, that doesn’t mean other cast members won’t try to bring the drama. Spencer Pratt, for instance, is returning and is already talking about beef with his sister Stephanie. The two apparently haven’t spoken since the original show aired; though maybe they’ll take a page out of Ashley’s book and try to build some bridges instead of burning them this season.

5 Things HIMYM Does Better Than Friends (& Vice Versa)

Friends and How I Met Your Mother are both long-running sitcoms with a large fan base. Besides the fact that they’re both hilarious shows about friends, there are many things that each show does in its own way.

RELATED: Stranger Things: 10 Most Romantic Moments, Ranked

For example, Ross and Rachel went on that famous break that everyone still thinks about, and that added to the tension on Friends for quite a while. HIMYM often made fans wonder if Ted and Robin would end up together but most people would agree that their relationship didn’t have the same conflict and drama that Ross and Rachel’s did.

Read on to find out five things that HIMYM did better than Friends and five things that Friends excels at.

10 HIMYM: A More Compelling Premise

It’s fair to say that when it comes to what How I Met Your Mother did better than Friends, fans could argue that it has a much more compelling premise. After all, both shows feature groups of pals hanging out and cracking jokes, but what sets HIMYM apart is its original and fascinating concept.

Ted Mosby is telling the story of how he met his children’s mother to his two teenagers, and viewers often see these scenes. While it might be frustrating to have to wait nine whole seasons for this (and we all know how that turned out…), it’s still a great idea for a sitcom.

9 Friends: A Solid 10 Seasons

Even super fans of HIMYM have to admit that not every season was not the best. There were definitely some dips in quality along the way. Like a lot of shows, it started off strong and then seemed like it was on for a super long time.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Biggest Twists, Ranked

Friends, on the other hand, gave fans a solid 10 seasons. Not many sitcoms (or dramas, or a show of any genre) could pull that off because it’s just so much screen time. But thanks to its mix of good characters, funny storylines, and heart, Friends remained something that fans couldn’t wait to watch, right up until the very end.

8 HIMYM: Robin’s Quirks (And Quirky Job)

A running joke on How I Met Your Mother is that Robin wants to be a real news reporter and succeed in that industry but, unfortunately, she’s stuck reporting on the most ridiculous news.

Robin is a quirky character and has a quirky job, and this is something that How I Met Your Mother does really well. She never feels fake or forced, and instead, she’s an important part of the show.

7 Friends: Inside Jokes For Fans

From “pivot!” to basically every single thing that Chandler Bing has ever said, Friends provides plenty of inside jokes for fans. It’s impossible to love this show and have watched each episode multiple times and run into a fellow fan and not repeat at least a few of his quotes.

While Barney often says “Legen — wait for it — dary” and some fans liked it, it’s fair to say that became more annoying than anything else after a while. Friends totally wins in this category.

6 HIMYM: Ted’s Search For Love

While many How I Met Your Mother fans wanted nothing more than for Ted and Robin to be together, it’s fair to say that it was interesting to watch him date and look for love. In the first season of the show, he’s always searching for that special someone, whether at a wedding or at a Halloween party. Many people can relate to that struggle.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 10 Most Underrated Supporting Characters

When the characters on Friends go on dates, it’s not that interesting at all… especially since everyone wants Rachel and Ross to just admit their feelings for each other already. It’s not fun to watch them go out with random people.

5 Friends: Monica And Chandler’s Relationship

While the gang on Friends have various jobs over the course of 10 seasons, their professional lives aren’t really why anyone is tuning in. But what did have people tuning in? That would be Monica and Chandler’s relationship.

Not many shows can depict what it’s like when two friends start a romantic relationship, but Friends did a great job with this storyline. Fans got to witness how nervous Monica and Chandler were about upsetting their dynamic and that of the larger friend group. And fans saw how everyone found out, which was, of course, totally hilarious.

4 HIMYM: Tough Times

While it was definitely sad to watch Ross and Rachel take some time away from each other and it was heartbreaking when Monica and Richard break out because of their huge age difference, those scenes don’t compare to the tough times that the characters faced on How I Met Your Mother.

Whether it was Lily and Marshall actually splitting up in the season one finale or Marshall’s dad dying in the sixth season, this show handled emotions and hard moments really well. These moments always felt real.

3 Friends: The Apartment Setting

The fact that Joey and Chandler lived across the hall from Monica and Rachel on Friends is not only fun to watch but a total dream for many people. Just imagine how great it would be to live so close to your best friends. This works so well since they’re always going back and forth and it’s easy for the characters to see each other all the time.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Funniest Ross Episodes

While Lily, Marshall, and Ted live together in an equally big (and equally unrealistic) apartment on HIMYM, it honestly just looks like yet another sitcom set and the setting isn’t quite as compelling.

2 HIMYM: An Interesting Final Season

While some fans might not love that the final season of HIMYM took place over the course of Robin and Ted’s wedding weekend, others enjoyed the different setting.

RELATED: How I Met Your Mother: 10 Biggest Twists, Ranked

No matter where someone stands on this, it’s fair to say that it was an interesting way to structure a final season of a show. After so many seasons featuring the same typical sitcom set-up, it was definitely a breath of fresh air. It’s nice when a series does something unique.

1 Friends: A Great Series Finale That Fans Loved

When it comes to the Friends series finale, it was definitely better received than HIMYM. Almost no one was okay finding out that the mother had actually passed away.

Friends could only ever end the way that it did: with the gang saying goodbye to each other, Monica and Rachel’s apartment, and then going to Central Perk. It was emotional, sweet, and exactly what fans needed and wanted. It’s always great when a show can deliver on an ending like that.

The 10 Best Episodes Of Friends Ever, According To IMDb

With over two hundred episodes spread over ten seasons, Friends somehow managed to deliver mostly outstanding, hilarious, and timeless episodes. The sitcom stands as one of TV’s best, most popular, and most binge-worthy. Not even the passage of time seems to affect the significance and relatable nature of Friends.

RELATED: 10 Things Friends Did Better Than Seinfeld

It’s 2019 and we’re still re-watching Friends, referencing characters, events and lines from the show, and discussing it with other fans. Favorite episodes are often a topic of conversation, so we decided to consult IMDb and find out which ten episodes have the highest rating. While some were easy to predict, a few entries might surprise you.

10 “THE ONE WITH ALL THE THANKSGIVINGS” (SEASON 5, EPISODE 8)

Let’s get one thing straight, Friends is the ultimate Thanksgiving show. Every Thanksgiving episode feels like a special event, but the one that stands out is the Season Five installment titled “The One with All the Thanksgivings”, which happens to be the tenth-highest-rated Friends episode on IMDb with a 9.2 rating.

After having their traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Monica’s, the friends start reminiscing about their worst Thanksgivings. We get several hilarious flashbacks, like Joey putting his head inside a dead turkey, Ross and Chandler’s unforgettable 1980s hairstyles, pre-weight-loss Monica, and other unforgettable Friends moments.

9 “THE ONE WITH ROSS’S WEDDING: PART 2” (SEASON 4, EPISODE 24)

The Season Four finale has got an IMDb rating of 9.2. It’s one of those episodes where everything works, every scene is funny, and all the actors are fantastic. In “The One with Ross’s Wedding: Part 2”, a pregnant Phoebe desperately tries to warn the gang that Rachel is coming to London to tell Ross she loves him.

RELATED: Friends: All Season Premieres Ranked

It all culminates in the second half of the episode when we find out that Monica and Chandler slept together, and Rachel arrives before the wedding but decides not to say anything. Just as we thought the wedding was saved, Ross blows it by saying “take thee Rachel” instead of Emily, ending the season with Friends’ biggest cliffhanger ever.

8 “THE ONE WITH THE RUMOR” (SEASON 8, EPISODE 9)

The one with Brad Pitt ranks at number eight with a score of 9.3. This Season Eight Thanksgiving episode, titled “The One with the Rumor” guest stars then-husband of Jennifer Anniston, Brad Pitt, as Monica and Ross’s high school friend Will. Monica runs into him and invites him to Thanksgiving dinner not knowing that Will hates Rachel, who was “a little mean to him in high school.”

Soon enough, secrets start coming out and Rachel is hurt and shocked to find out that Ross and Will not only founded the “I Hate Rachel Green Club,” but also started a vicious rumor about her. Meanwhile, Joey is suited up in Phoebe’s maternity pants in an effort to finish almost an entire turkey.

7 “THE ONE WITH THE VIDEOTAPE” (SEASON 8, EPISODE 4)

In this Season Eight episode, Ross and Rachel try to explain to the others how they ended up in bed together six weeks earlier, but they disagree over a crucial question: who came on to whom. Luckily (and weirdly), Ross has the entire ordeal on tape, but it’s not what you think. Meanwhile, Chandler and Monica discover they got fake-numbered by another couple.

RELATED: 10 Of The Best Friends Cold Opens

In a flashback to six weeks ago, we find out that Joey taught Ross his magic never-fail story. The same story that Rachel heard from a friend, who heard it from some guy, aka Ken Adams, aka Joey. Not knowing the true source of the story or that people are familiar with it, Rachel used it on Ross. The moment it all comes together is just fantastic.

6 “THE ONE WITH THE PROPOSAL: PART 2” (SEASON 6, EPISODE 25)

In the Season Six finale, Chandler does such a great job at making Monica believe that he never wants to get married that he almost pushes her right back to Richard. Because, while Chandler is talking about pigs, Richard tells Monica that he does want to marry her and give her everything she’s ever wanted.

In this hilarious mix-up of an episode, both the characters and the audience are put through an emotional roller coaster before we’re finally put out of our misery when Monica and Chandler propose to each other in the show’s most romantic moment. “The One with the Proposal Part 2” has a rating of 9.3, and while it may not be one of the funniest Friends episodes, it is definitely one of the most memorable and significant ones.

5 “THE ONE WITH THE EMBRYOS” (SEASON 4, EPISODE 12)

In this fan-favorite episode that holds a rating of 9.4, while Phoebe was getting pregnant, the others decided to go for a friendly wager. What started out as a silly bet on whether the guys can guess everything that Rachel bought at the store turned into a full-blown quiz where the stakes were Monica’s apartment and the Chick and the Duck.

The dedication with which Ross approached his task as the test-maker and host is so Ross and absolutely ridiculous, the questions are hilarious and the answers even more so, and the contestants’ enthusiasm is infectious. As you watch, you get dragged into this bizarre contest, eagerly anticipating the outcome.

4 “THE ONE WITH THE PROM VIDEO” (SEASON 2, EPISODE 14)

In order to give Ross hope that he and Rachel are meant to be together, Phoebe shares the lobster theory with the gang, creating one of the show’s most iconic catchphrases “he’s her lobster.” Meanwhile, Joey finally makes money and buys Chandler a flashy bracelet, which he secretly hates, and Monica and Ross’s parents drop off some of Monica’s old things, including a videotape.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Saddest Moments, Ranked

Turns out the video in question is of Monica and Rachel’s prom night. The tape reveals some fascinating details from the past, like Monica’s girth and Rachel’s old nose, much to Joey and Chandler’s amusement. But, most importantly, Rachel finds out that Ross was willing to take her to prom when they thought her date had stood her up. Overwhelmed by his gesture, Rachel kisses Ross.

3 “THE LAST ONE: PART 1” (SEASON 10, EPISODE 17)

The first part of the Friends series finale holds a rating of 9.5 and follows two plotlines: Chandler and Monica becoming parents and Ross pondering what to do about Rachel. Much to Monica, Chandler, and shockingly Erica’s surprise, Erica gives birth to twins.

Ross goes back and forth on whether to tell Rachel he loves her till the very last moment. When the new parents arrive at the apartment, the gang is delighted to meet Jack and Erica, but the celebrations don’t last long since Rachel has to leave for the airport. Ross then finally makes up his mind and decides to go after her, setting up the epic conclusion that comes in Part Two.

2 “THE LAST ONE: PART 2” (SEASON 10, EPISODE 18)

Speaking of Part Two, the last episode of Friends has a score of 9.7 and it is the one episode that made everyone cry (and still does to this day). Ross and Phoebe are trying to catch up to Rachel before her plane takes off and, by mistake, end up at the wrong airport.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Times Ross Broke Our Hearts

Aboard the plane, Jim Rash plays the hilarious and paranoid passenger who spreads ‘phalange’ panic and thus, indeed, prevents the plane from taking off on schedule. Ross and Rachel have their romantic airport scene, but she still leaves for Paris. Or does she?

1 “THE ONE WHERE EVERYBODY FINDS OUT” (SEASON 5, EPISODE 14)

“The One Where Everybody Finds Out” is the very best episode ever. At least, that’s what the 9.7 IMDb rating suggests. As the title implies, this is the episode in which everybody finds out about Chandler and Monica.

Phoebe sees Monica and Chandler making out from Ugly Naked Guy’s apartment and freaks out. Later, she and Rachel decided to mess with the couple and Phoebe tries to seduce Chandler in order to force them out of hiding. Monica and Chandler get wind of their intentions and attempt to foil their plans.

Friends: 10 Funniest Ross Episodes | ScreenRant

Ross Gellar is easily the most underrated Friends character. People consider him to be either rather annoying, or without a distinct feature like someone like Phoebe or Joey might have; however, Ross actually possesses the funniest moments on the show.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Saddest Moments, Ranked

There are certain episodes that are Ross-centric, and these are the most hilarious ones you’ll find on Friends. More often than not, Ross finds himself in embarrassing situations, ones that might be humiliating for him, but offer us hours of endless laughter. Now, go back and watch these 10 funniest Ross episodes on Friends.

10 The One With All The Resolutions – Season 5

Ross is generally the friend who realizes how dim Joey is, but when he gets desperate, Ross always goes to Joey for advice. We saw it here in its best form when Ross got stuck in his own leather pants when he couldn’t pull them back up.

RELATED: Friends: 10 Times Ross Broke Our Hearts

Taking Joey’s ridiculous advice, Ross attempted to lather lotion around his legs to lubricate the pants back up, but ended up making a paste due to the combination of powder and lotion. The kicker was that poor Ross had gotten the leather pants as part of a New Year’s resolution to do something different everyday – getting kicked out of your date’s apartment with no pants and paste on your legs counts, maybe?

9 The One With Ross’s Sandwich – Season 5

Don’t you just hate it when you’re going through a divorce and your boss eats your sandwich? We’ll tell you how not to react by pointing out how Ross went insane when the same happened to him.

Here, Ross’s fury knew no bounds, and he exploded in rage shouting “My Sandwich!?” repeatedly at his boss. That wasn’t the only rage induced moment of the episode either, as Ross would then be tranquilized and act like a complete goof for the rest of the episode. He got suspended from work, but at least he definitely didn’t care about his sandwich anymore.

8 The One With The Girl Who Hits Joey – Season 5

Ross displayed being cheap quite a lot during the show, such as when he didn’t want to share his 50 cents with Phoebe for lottery prize money, or when he took everything from a hotel room because it was built in the price of the room. However, we’re going to have to side with him on this one.

Despite having just moved in, Ross was singled out for not paying 100 bucks for a departing handyman – or as Ross called him “Just man”. The episode had Ross in a failed attempt in gaining the favor of the rest of the tenants, and ended with him being caught in the act for eating the handyman’s cake, making a sad (actually hilarious) attempt at hiding the fact as well.

7 The One With Unagi – Season 6

Ross is almost always right in stuff that concerns trivia, but in this instance he looked like a complete moron when he thought Unagi was a state of total awareness. Ross would then try to prove it by claiming he had Unagi while Phoebe and Rachel didn’t.

But we all knew Ross was always a scaredy cat, as Phoebe and Rachel would ambush him at his house, causing Ross to scream like a little girl. They would do one better when they caught him trying to return the favor, only beat him into submission. The end credits scene was the funniest of all, where Ross ended up being attacked by a couple of women he thought were Phoebe and Rachel – looks like Unagi wasn’t flowing through Dr. Gellar as good as he thought it was.

6 The One With The Cop – Season 5

The number 298 is one every Friends fans knows intimately, and we won’t elaborate on that because when you know, you know. Ross mentioned this number during the scene where he purchased a new couch, wanting the phrase “come here to me” to sound both friendly and seductive.

The legendary scene this episode is known for was when Ross had Chandler and Rachel navigate the couch on the staircase, shouting “Pivot!” at the top of his lungs. Not only did the couch not “Pivot”, it got stuck, forcing Ross to cut it in half and claim to the store they had it delivered to him that way. Ol’ Cheapo Ross resurfaced when he took $4 store credit in compensation.

5 The One With The Memorial Service – Season 9

Ross’s mom gave him an overinflated sense of importance, one where he now needed validation that everyone saw him as special. So, he ended up having a memorial service for himself after a feud with Chandler went awry, where Chandler had their college alumni thinking Ross died after getting hit by a blimp.

The comedic aspect had arrived earlier with Ross and Chandler trading shots, with the former editing pictures of Chandler to make it appear as if he was out and proud, before the hilarity moved over to Ross eavesdropping on potential people arriving to pay their respects after his supposed death. Unfortunately, only “party boys for Chandler” turned up.

4 The One Where Ross Is Fine – Season 10

David Schwimmer is a master at comedic timing where physicality is involved, and you won’t find any better than this episode, where Ross was inebriated throughout and acted as if he was in denial about the world ending.

Ross would obsess over fajitas; pick up an extremely hot plate without oven mitts and laugh about it; and then take off his pants and dance for Joey. The whole episode is dedicated to Ross acting insane, and the punchline is how he’s “fine” through the ordeal. If that’s what being fine looks like, then imagine the horror if Ross wasn’t fine.

3 The One With All The Rugby – Season 4

It’s a shame we never got to see Red Ross in the flesh, because by all accounts he sounds awesome. Here, Red Ross appeared very briefly when he went in for the kill in a match of Rugby. Earlier on, “Dead” Ross had gotten pounded for attempting to impress Emily by playing Rugby with a bunch of Brits.

RELATED: 10 Of The Best Friends Cold Opens

He would have trouble getting into a huddle in the first place, ending up dangling by his legs and calling out to Joey for help. After half-time, Ross would claim he thought he was dying and for Phoebe to tell his son he loves him.

2 The One With Ross’s Tan – Season 10

Always count “Mississippi-lessly”, children, unless you want to end up looking like you got a tan from the sun. Ross found this out the hard way when he got spray tanned multiple times the same side as he made a very big error in counting.

By the conclusion of the episode, Ross looked like a circus freak, with the front half of his body being a different skin tone from his back. The funniest thing is the part we didn’t get to see; and that is the fact that Ross hauled himself in public looking the way he did for everyone to witness.

1 The One With The Routine – Season 6

Ross and Monica are sibling goals because of their very close relationship; they’re also both losers in personality. In this episode, Ross convinced Monica to go with their former routine, which was something you use in your application for the Loser Academy for Nerds, as they “stole” the stage.

Still, it was both hilarious and impressive to see these two siblings own the scene, and their antics even before the dance are such we want to see again and again. The best bit was when Ross thought he’d done a bang on good job at the dance, and kept getting into the face of the director as if he was going to be cast in the Step Up film series.

Friends: 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Boyfriends On The Show | ScreenRant

The main characters of Friends had many different love interests over the ten seasons of the show. For the three main women, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe, they had a variety of boyfriends. Some of these boyfriends were great guys who you’ll definitely want to be in a relationship with while others weren’t so great. Some of these relationships were short-lived while others lasted a good amount of time even leading to marriage. While they didn’t always pick the boyfriends that were best for them, sometimes they did.

We’ve put together a list of the best and worst boyfriends over the course of the seasons of Friends.

10 WORST: BARRY

Barry is the first relationship we see that Rachel has had. Barry was her fiancé who she left, and it’s easy to see why. There’s nothing about him that is very likable. He’s super boring, and the life of an orthodontists’ wife doesn’t seem very fitting for Rachel. But, what makes him really the worst is that he cheated on Rachel with both her sister and her best friend. Thankfully, Rachel got out of this relationship and moved to New York City. She was definitely much better without him.

9 BEST: JOEY

Now, this entry might seem like a strange one to include, but there is reasoning behind it. While Joey was often a big jerk to the women he slept with, he rarely had girlfriends. In the situations where he did have a girlfriend, especially his brief relationship with Rachel, he was actually caring and considerate. Joey might not have been the most mature of boyfriends on the show, but he definitely cared about the few people in his life that he was close to.

8 WORST: TIMOTHY BURKE

The main reason why Timothy Burke is on this list is the fact that he dated Monica after she dated Richard. While there wasn’t anything necessarily wrong with him as a person, this fact was just too weird.

RELATED: Friends: The 10 Most Hilarious Quotes From Monica Geller

While of course, Monica is to blame here as well, there’s something extremely creepy about someone dating a woman that their father already dated. But, on the other hand, she was definitely closer in age to Timothy than to Richard.

7 BEST: MARK

While Mark isn’t spoken of very highly on the show, that is mostly just because Ross hated him. Ross might have been jealous of Mark, which honestly makes sense as Mark was a better boyfriend than him, Mark was overall a good guy. Even after they break up, Mark still has enough respect and fond feelings for Rachel to help her get the job at Louis Vuitton. This makes him just an overall solid person.

6 WORST: GARY

Phoebe had a lot of different boyfriends over the years, and some of them were a lot better than others. Phoebe is a unique person who has a lot of love to give, and it definitely took her a few tries to find the right person. Gary was definitely not that person. He wanted Phoebe to move in with him before she was ready. Also, he shot a bird which was a huge no-no when it comes to dating an animal lover like Phoebe.

5 BEST: DAVID

David is another one of Phoebe’s boyfriends, and he was definitely one of the best ones. He was only in a few episodes, but he seemed like an amazing guy. There is definitely some debate amongst fans as to if Phoebe should have chosen him instead of Mike. Even if she didn’t pick David, he was a really sweet guy who cared a lot about Phoebe and was a huge romantic.

RELATED: What Happened To Phoebe After Friends Ended

Hopefully, David ended up with a happy ending even if Friends didn’t show it to us.

4 WORST: GAVIN

Rachel definitely struggled over the seasons to find good relationships. Many of the guys she dated weren’t that great, and Gavin is definitely one of the worst. He was a huge jerk to her. When she came back to work after her maternity leave, he was conceding and also sexist. While the show might have tried to redeem him later on, it’s hard to forget how he treated her at work. It’s clear that Gavin was a character who thinks it’s ok to disrespect people, even people that he claims to have a crush on.

3 BEST: PETE

Pete might be a bit of an underrated and forgotten boyfriend on the show which is quite a shame. Pete was played by Jon Favreau which definitely doesn’t hurt with making the characters charming. He was a good love interest for Monica and seemed like a good person in general. While he only appeared in six episodes, he definitely left an impact.

RELATED: 10 Best Friends Guest Stars, Ranked

They had a sweet love story, and there’s not much to complain about here.

2 WORST: ROSS

It’s no surprise that Ross is so high up on this list as one of the worst boyfriends from Friends. He wasn’t just a bad boyfriend at many points to Rachel, he was also a bad boyfriend to basically every woman that he dated. He was still in love with Rachel when he dated and got engaged to Emily. Plus, he often disrespected Rachel and interfered with her life when he got jealous. Overall, he was one of the most selfish characters on the show, and he jumped from one relationship to another. He seemed to care more about being in a relationship than actually being a good boyfriend.

1 BEST: MIKE

Mike was one of the most solid boyfriends on the show. He was a good match for phoebe and able to roll with her more eccentric personality traits. Plus, when they disagreed about what they wanted for the future, they were able to break up in a respectful way. Luckily, they made things work, and Mike was able to realize how important getting married was to Phoebe. Overall, he was just a sweet guy who was respectful and invested in Phoebe. Compared to many of the rude boyfriends on this show, Mike was a shining example.

Friends: Joey’s 10 Most Memorable Episodes

Joey Tribbiani may not be the smartest cookie in the jar, but he’s is the funniest. Portrayed by Matt LeBlanc, Joey provided countless hilarious moments in the course of Friends‘ ten seasons. While Chandler had the best one-liners, Joey had the best catchphrase, “how you doing?

RELATED: Red Ross: The Funniest Ross Episodes Of Friends

Of course, there’s more to Joey than just that one line. Each friend has had a number of episodes in which they got the opportunity to shine (to take center stage or steal it from someone else), but today, it’s all about Joey and his most memorable episodes. There are a few honorable mentions, including “The One with the Ride-Along,” “The One with Joey’s Bag” and pretty much all the Thanksgiving episodes, but these are on another level of Joey goodness.

10 “The One With Joey’s Porsche”

While Ross and Rachel were busy getting a divorce and Phoebe, Chandler, and Monica were babysitting the triplets, Joey spent his time pretending to own a Porsche. Of course, he didn’t stop at that. He invented a whole life. One in which his equity investments got him the Porsche, as well as his place upstate. However, once the real owner showed up and took the car, Joey was back to being just Joey.

Having fallen victim to being the fake owner of a Porsche, Joey had a Porsche throw up on him (resulting in the fetching look pictured above), hoping it would help him to keep deceiving people. Joey’s attempts to maintain his “image” didn’t end there, either. Being quite the craftsman, he made a Porsche model out of cardboard boxes and covered it up with a protective car blanket. He would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids.

9 “The One With Joey’s New Brain”

Joey enthusiastically announcing that he’s getting a new brain never gets old. In this awesome season seven episode, Joey’s Days of Our Lives character, Dr. Drake Ramoray, comes out of his coma and gets a new brain. Joey explains that when he comes out of the “brain transplant,” he’s going to be Jessica Lockheart in Drake Ramoray’s body (causing Ross to whimper in despair at the scientific strangeness of it all).

Cecile Monroe (portrayed by Susan Sarandon), who plays Jessica Lockheart, gives Joey some tips about ‘being’ the character. Of course, Joey being Joey, he hooks up with her, but he does actually learn how to play Jessica by “owning the room”. The scene in which Joey makes his big entrance as Jessica (with bandages over his head) gets us every time.

8 “The One Where The Stripper Cries”

Or, as it should have been called, “The One with Joey on Pyramid.” This is yet another great episode from season ten. While all the plotlines in this episode are hilarious, Joey’s guest appearance on Pyramid is by far the funniest.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: Joey on a game show equals disaster. You’re right. He lost almost every round even though his partner’s clues were obvious.

Joey gets cocky when he has to guess things you find in your refrigerator, but manages to mess that up too, because apparently it’s common to find items such as paper, snow, a ghost, a dog, a rock, and the Earth in one’s fridge (the “paper, snow, a ghost” line is still one of Joey’s most memorable). He was equally hilarious and oblivious trying to explain things associated with the U.S. Congress.

7 “The One With The Birth Mother”

In this season ten episode – wow, Joey had some pretty great moments in season ten – Phoebe reluctantly sets Joey up with one of her friends. Joey promises to treat the girl right, and he might have followed through with his promise if she hadn’t reached for his food.

RELATED: Friends: Joey’s 5 Best (And 5 Worst) Relationships

The poor girl took a couple of fries from Joey’s plate, which got him a bit agitated to say the least. Turns out, Joey doesn’t share food – not even a couple of grapes with Emma. When Phoebe teases him about it, Joey utters the unforgettable line “Joey doesn’t share food”. Still, he decides to give the girl a second chance, but somehow ends up eating her piece of cake while she was answering the phone. When she returns and catches Joey all smudged with chocolate, Joey just smiles and says, “I’m not even sorry”.

6 “The One With The Baby Shower”

Let’s play Bamboozled! Don’t worry if the rules seem too complicated (or downright ridiculous), you just need some practice to get into it. We’ll just let Joey Tribbiani, the host of Bamboozled, break it down for you: “You spin the Wheel of Mayhem to go up to the Letter of Chance, you go past the Mud Hut through the Rainbow Ring to get to the Golden Monkey, you yank his tail and boom, you’re in Paradise Pond.” What’s complicated?

Joey’s practice contestants, Chandler and Ross, loved their time on Bamboozled, even though Joey hadn’t yet memorized all the rules and had to check what a Google Card is and how the Wheel of Mayhem works. However, this didn’t stop him from using his phony host voice, which only made lines like “I should know that” and “this is embarrassing” more hilarious.

5 “The One With Joey’s Fridge”

In this season six episode, Joey’s almost 30-year-old fridge breaks, so he goes around trying his best to get other people to pay for it. After failing to get the money from Rachel, he tries his luck with Chandler.

When Chandler walks into the apartment he finds a nauseous-looking Joey, eating ice-cream next to a table covered with empty containers. Befuddled, Chandler opens with “well you don’t look good, Joe”. Joey then matter-of-factly explains that the fridge broke, so he had to eat everything. Classic Joey.

To get Chandler to pay for the fridge, Joey paints quite the picture, where they’re a divorced couple, Joey has custody of the kid, the kid died and now he has to get a new kid, so Chandler should give him $400. This, surprisingly, doesn’t work, so Joey then tries to get money from Ross by pushing him into the fridge and claiming Ross broke it.

4 THE ONE WITH MONICA’S THUNDER

While Monica accused Ross and Rachel of stealing her thunder, we’d argue that her thunder was stolen by Joey. When the gang decided to go out to celebrate Monica and Chandler’s engagement, Joey dropped a bomb when he said he’s supposed to be playing a nineteen-year-old the next day. He even went through the trouble of putting on a ridiculous outfit –which for some reason included Chandler’s underwear– to prove that he can pass for nineteen, uttering the unforgettable line “s’up with the wack PlayStation s’up”.

Even after Chandler told him that “on a scale from one to ten – ten being the dumbest a person can look” he is “definitely nineteen,” Joey kept trying to act nineteen, mostly by saying “wack,” even though everyone else was dealing with much bigger issues.

3 “The One Where Rachel’s Sister Babysits”

In the fifth episode of Friends’ last season, Monica and Chandler task Joey with writing a letter of recommendation to the adoption agency. Their first choice was Rachel, but when Joey protested, they decided to let him write the letter: a decision they almost came to regret. Fearing he won’t sound smart enough, Joey takes Ross’ advice and uses a thesaurus for bonus intelligence points.

Joey writes a very, very smart letter from the bottom of his full-sized aortic pump, using the thesaurus on every single word, including his name (which became “Baby Kangaroo” Tribbiani). On his second try, Joey didn’t go for smart at all but instead dropped off a handwritten letter –complete with drawings– at the agency. Luckily for Chandler and Monica, the agency loved it, thinking Joey was a child.

2 “The One Where Joey Speaks French”

In this season ten episode, Joey auditions for a part that requires him to speak fluent French, which he can definitely do (according to his resume). Phoebe, who actually does speak fluent French, offers to teach him and hilarity ensues. The name of Joey’s character is Claude, so Phoebs starts by trying to teach him how to introduce himself.

RELATED: The 10 Best Pop Culture References Created On Friends

However, every time she asks him to repeat the words “je m’appelle Claude”, Joey speaks gibberish. Every Joey scene in this episode is absolutely hysterical, giving us some pretty hilarious lines such as “blay de la blay de blu blah blay,” Joey’s audition and conversation with the director and his victorious “tout de la fruit” at the end.

1 “The One Where No One’s Ready”

In this side-splitting episode from the first half of the third season, an increasingly nervous Ross is waiting for his friends to get ready so that they can go to his big event. However, for one reason or another, everyone seems to be taking their sweet time. Joey and Chandler, for instance, get into the most mundane and asinine argument about who gets to sit in Monica’s chair.

Their entire fight is hilarious, but it all comes to a head when –after having his underwear hidden by Chandler– Joey decides to do the complete opposite, which in his mind means putting on all of Chandler’s clothes. Joey wearing everything Chandler owns, uttering the now-famous line “could I BE wearing any more clothes?” is one of the funniest Friends scenes ever.

Friends: The 10 Most Hilarious Quotes From Ross Geller

Even the most hardcore Friends fans have to agree that not all of the show has aged well. Many of the series’ original jokes would not stand up on their own today, but we should celebrate the acceptance and tolerance of people of all walks of life that has become a more mainstream quality in our culture as well as our media. We can also still enjoy the many times the characters on the show made us laugh so hard.

RELATED: Friends: 20 Wild Revelations Behind Ross And Monica’s Relationship

Even as smart as Ross Geller was, for example, many of his quotes were so goofy or ridiculous that we can’t help but laugh and nod when we hear them again 15 years later. Given that the character was pretty much written for David Schwimmer, it’s no wonder that these lines were delivered with such panache.

10 “I’m The Holiday Armadillo!”

Remember the time that there were no more Santa Clause or other Christmas-related costumes around and all that was left was… an armadillo costume? This was absolutely perfect for Ross, who wanted to teach Ben about Hanukkah and decided that he needed Santa, too, only to discover that he was too little, too late when it came to ordering a costume (what did he expect?).

So he did what Ross Geller would do and rent whatever costume they had, which turned out to be… the Holiday Armadillo. Ross’s nasal voice declaring, “I’m the holiday Armadillo!” is one that can never be forgotten in its hilarity.

9 “Ah. Humor Based On My Pain.”

Even though Ross is the most intelligent of all of the friends, he’s also the butt of the most jokes in all nine seasons. Even Joey with his goofy little kid brain isn’t as much of a punchline as poor Ross. Luckily Ross is used to the behavior of his friends, however, and he’s quick to either condemn, join in with or shut down the joke, depending on the situation.

RELATED: Paul Rudd Explains How Filming Avengers Is Similar to Friends

One of his best quotes regarding one of these exact situations was the simple, “Ah. Humor based on my pain.” He loves his friends (and sister) even though they love to make fun at his expense.

8 “I Tell You, When I Actually Die, Some People Are Going To Get Seriously Haunted!”

Let’s be honest. We’ve all pictured our own funerals, or at least the reactions of the people we love upon hearing of our demise, and it’s kind of a morbid little hobby that a lot of people indulge in. So when Ross had a pretend memorial service for himself after Chandler tells his classmates that he was taken out by a blimp, we can kind of see where he was coming from.

When almost no one showed up for his fake funeral, an affronted Ross scoffed, “I tell you, when I actually die, some people are going to get seriously haunted!”

7 “You Have No Idea How Much This Hurts!”

Only pregnant people understand what it’s like to be pregnant, and only those who give birth can comment on the intense feels in the process. Ross, in a moment of sheer bone-headed hilarity, gets hit in the head while Rachel is giving birth to their baby by… Rachel’s head.

RELATED: Friends: Joey’s 5 Best (And 5 Worst) Relationships

It’s kind of a fitting moment where she can share a bit of the pain with her partner, but Ross has to make the quip, “You have no idea how much this hurts.” We’re pretty sure Rachel’s been bumped on the head before, buddy, and we’re also pretty sure you have no idea how much labor hurts!

6 “Get Off My Sister!”

As out of left field as Monica and Chandler were at first, we quickly grew to love the pairing affectionately known as “Mondler.” Ross, who didn’t approve of the couple when he first spotted them making out, gave us the kind of brotherly reaction that makes us both roll our eyes and giggle. Staring at them through the window, he shrieked, “Get off my sister!”

It’s so funny because it seems like such a 12-year-old comment to make, especially when your sister is a grown-up who can date with whomever she wants. Ross also gave us that hilarious “I’m fine!” when he found out that Joey and Rachel were dating.

5 “I Will Hunt You Down And Kick Your A**!”

It’s bad enough that Ross’s intelligence is something to be mocked, but the friends tend to guffaw over the man’s physical prowess as well, scoffing at the idea of him ever beating someone up. He attempts to threaten Chandler in a bit of an example of old toxic masculinity, telling Monica’s beau that, “if you ever hurt my little sister, if you ever cause her any unhappiness of any kind, I will hunt you down and kick your ass!”

RELATED: 10 Best Jennifer Aniston Roles After Friends

The quote itself is a bit funny, especially considering the fact that Monica is much more intimidating than her brother (and the fact that she is, again, a grown woman who doesn’t need him issuing dumb threats), but the hilarity really ensues with Chandler’s reaction, which is a huge laugh.

4 “You And Those Vegetables Have, Uh… Real Thing Going, Huh?”

Okay, even the idea of Ross flirting with Phoebe sounds ridiculous based on their personalities alone, but when Ross actually attempts it his flirting skills are so awkward that we doubt they’d have even worked on Rachel at this point.

The quote? It’s a doozy: “Hey Pheebs, how’s that vegetarian pizza working for you, huh? You and those vegetables have, uh… real thing going, huh?” It is so painful to watch especially with that goofy leg dip he does, flinging his foot on the back of the couch to look cute. We doubt he’s ever looked as awkward at any other moment.

3 “I Got Dumped During Sex!”

Ross has had such bad luck with relationships over the years that we’re still puzzled over how he managed to not only marry Rachel but to get so many other cool and classy women to fall for him in the first place. Between his awkward flirting and lack of decent partner skills it really took years of training from all of his partners to whip him into shape.

RELATED: Friends: The 10 Most Hilarious Quotes From Joey Tribbiani

That does’t mean he doesn’t have some embarrassing tales that he doesn’t even have the shame to take to the grave, though. He’s openly admitted that a woman once broke his heart at the most intimate moment, saying, “Once, I got dumped during sex!” It’s a pretty sad yet hilarious line.

2 “I’m A Terrible Father.”

Who wants their baby to be soothed by the sounds of Sir Mix-a-Lot? It’s not the first lullaby that comes to mind when we picture a soothing song for an infant, but as most parents know, you use whatever works.

When a frustrated Ross attempts to soothe a crabby Emma with the gift of song, he croons, “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns, hun,” before gasping at himself. He then says, “I’m a terrible father.” Frankly this is not one of the worst things he does as a father, since Emma won’t even recall these lyrics, which makes it even funnier.

1 “Pivot!”

It’s just one word, but somehow it’s been turned into such a funny line that it’s used in everything from memes to daily life, especially if Friends fans are moving furniture around.

While attempting to move a couch up some stairs, Ross calls out the order, “Pivot!” believing it will somehow magically help them get the couch all the way up the stairs and around the stubborn banister. It’s also just a silly word to use when moving furniture since it sounds like you’re ordering someone to do a dance instead, so it’s no wonder that we find such joy in repeating this simple but hilarious quote.

Paul Rudd Explains How Filming Avengers Is Similar to Friends

Paul Rudd says working on Avengers: Endgame is similar to his experience on Friends. Debuting as one of the most obscure heroes in the MCU via Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man, the actor has been playing the role for almost four years now, reprising the role two more times in Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man & The Wasp. This year, he official joins the bigger world as he teams up with the remaining heroes to go after Thanos following the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

Plot details for the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely-written blockbuster have been heavily guarded. Trailers barely reveal any concrete clues as to what might go down in the film. But as far as the public knows, Ant-Man will play a crucial role in the narrative having the key to the mysterious Quantum Realm introduced and largely explored in his movies. It’s uncertain how the alternate dimension will factor in the movie, but many are convinced that it will pave the way for the heroes to travel through time. Being one of the newer actors boarding the MCU, Rudd has been vocal about his experience joining an established franchise, and recently, he compared this to his years in the classic sitcom, Friends.

Related: All The Avengers: Endgame Quantum Realm Clues (So Far)

Sitting down with ET during Endgame‘s press day, Rudd, who was partnered up with original Avenger, Jeremy Renner, was reminded that this year marks the 25th anniversary of Friends. In light of that, the actor talked briefly about what he remembers during his years in the show. And along the conversation, he shared that it’s very similar to him joining the MCU in a sense that he boarded the sitcom when it was already very popular and acting opposite these already iconic actors and characters and he “just didn’t want to get in the way.” Watch the full clip below:

Rudd, who had already done the coming-of-age classic film Clueless at that time, was introduced in Friends‘ second to the last season as Mike Hannigan – accidental-boyfriend-turned-husband of Lisa Kudrow’s Phoebe. The two had a bumpy relationship that even resulted in a brief break-up, but they eventually got back together and got hitched in a romantic, albeit unorthodox winter wedding officiated by Joey (Matt LeBlanc). Despite only appearing in a handful of episodes, he had some very memorable moments in the sitcom, particularly the one where he and and David Schwimmer’s Ross were forced to hang out as Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Phoebe go out for a girls’ night out.

Ant-Man has been largely operating on its own for the last few years with only a short appearance in Civil War. While it’s unknown whether or not this will still be the trend once this ongoing Thanos debacle is resolved, there’s a good chance that he’ll be more active in the ongoings in the bigger MCU. Since the Quantum Realm, which is significantly tied to him and his franchise will be a pivotal part of the franchise moving forward, not to mention the fact that he’s connected to other heroes in the lore, he and The Wasp can be two of the next poster characters for the universe come Phase 4. So while his stint in Avengers: Endgame reminded him of joining Friends, unlike the latter, his time in the Marvel universe is still far from over.
