MEme Monday: Friends Edition

Suphamommy and MommyBrain came up with some fun Friends-themed prompts for us to choose from this week.




I decided to go with: Your favorite episode of Friends, Why?



Because it takes me back to freshmen year of college.



I went to a Serious College where we were Serious Students.



We studied. all. the. time.



There was no drinking, no intermingling of the sexes, not even cable tv.



What we had was a tiny little 10in tv with rabbit ears and were lucky enough to have a room on the right side of the quad to be able to pick up reception of TWO channels.



All week, my two roommates and I would talk about what work would need to be done in order for us each to have the time to be able to watch Friends and the other good Thursday night shows.



It was the only night that we watched tv.



There were only 2 other rooms on our hall that got good reception.



So, we always had a crowd in with us, watching Friends.



Snacks galore and everyone completely riveted by the Ross/Rachel will-they-or-won't-they? plot line.



Best episode: The One Where Ross and Rachel First Kiss(technically known as The One Where Ross Finds Out...but that's stupid- you wouldn't know what the heck episode I was talking about if I said that)





We had a crowd in our room and the other 2 good tv reception rooms on the hall were packed...I don't think anyone on our hall was anywhere else that night.





The anticipation. Everyone holding their breath, waiting to see what would happen.





The "NOOOOOOOO!" you heard when Ross walked out of the coffee shop on Rachel.





And then the screaming that could be heard all down the hall when he came back and kissed her.





You would have thought it was the most exciting thing in all our lives.





Though...thinking back to freshmen year...before I discovered that there were people who drank on our "dry" campus....before I figured out how to sneak into the guys' side of the dorms(that sounds slutty, but really, it wasn't)....and before our school got cable our senior year....





That episode probably was the highlight of our year.





Oh, and in case you were wondering: I'm totally the female version of Chandler.

I remember that moment! The excitement and longing to have something like that happen to me :) I too was a Freshman that year on a dry campus but I lived in a co-ed dorm with cable ;)

I love Friends and I have a hard time picking my favorite episode, but this one is definitely on the top of the list.

I can't believe everyone thinks they are Chandler...

I liked the episode too where he dedicates a song to Rachel, she goes to the phone and you "think" she is calling him...but she called the station and the dj comes on and says they do not want to play Ross's dedication anymore because of what he did.

HA!

I remember this episode so clearly. It was a great one! Wasn't it the season finale? I loved this show and will still watch reruns every day when I am home. :)
