The Best Thanksgiving Episodes In The (Recent) History Of Television

2 of 20


Friends is notorious for their holiday episodes, so it was hard to pick just one to add to the list. This show was on so long, that we looked to these characters like one of us, and we learned a lot about how we felt about things by watching how they felt about things.

“The One With All The Thanksgivings” made the cut because not only does it have all the flashbacks, but it’s also the one where Chandler says “I love you” to Monica. I’m a sucker for an origin story. I loved seeing Rachel’s old nose, fat Monica, Ross’ Miami Vice suit and Chandler’s Flock of Seagulls hair. It’s always fun to see how they’re imagined as younger versions of themselves.

Also known as “The One With All the Thanksgiving Flashbacks,” this episode was Friends at it’s best, and was the official start to one of the most iconic and beloved relationships on television. It’s the eight episode of the fifth season, and is a total fan favorite because this was the moment we saw Monica and Chandler become a couple, all while Monica had a turkey on her head.
