    There have been soooo many guest stars throughout the whole series! LOL Some more memorable than others, with some appearing in more than one episode or even showing up over and over. What are some of the best (or your favorite) guest star episodes or moments?

    I just got done watching season 10, so one guest that sticks out is Jennifer Coolidge who played Amanda in TOW Ross's Tan. It's so funny the way she acts in that episode, especially when she's in Central Perk with Phoebe and Monica and says, "I feel like a complete arse." What's even more funny is how it took Lisa Kudrow so many takes to get past that, after watching the gag reel. LOL I laugh now just thinking about it!

    I liked Christina Applegate and Reese Witherspoon as Rachel's sisters, and Elle Mcpherson as Janine, but I you can't go past Kathleen Turner as Chandler's dad, that's a classic.

    I also liked the fact that so many Days of our Lives fans crossed over as guest stars.

    I didn't really like Amanda - she was too over the top - but I guess that's just her character.

    My favourite guest stars would have to be Kathleen Turner as Chandler's dad Charles, Brad Pitt as Will, Charlie Sheen as Ryan and Charleston Heston

    My favourite recurring guest stars are Christina Pickles as Judy, Tom Selleck as Richard, Bruce Willis as Paul Stevens, Jessica Hench as Susan, Jane Sibbett as Carol, June Gable as Estelle, Adam Goldberg as Eddie, Sophie and Maggie Wheeler as Janice.

    Kathleen Turner as Chandler's dad and Maggie Wheeler as Janice are both GREAT in their own way. They can't have any problems making fun of themselves, KT being a manly woman, and MW's with her voice. Viva Las Gaygas. Oh... My.... God!

    I have sadly only seen two with guest stars, and they were Brad Pitt, and the other was Julia Roberts, I thought the one with Roberts was hilarious

    Reese Witherspoon. My favorite scene with her was in the first episode she was in, when Rachel got mad at her and she started pretending to cry and Rachel said, "Do you really think that's going to work on me? I invented that!" So she stops crying right away and says, "Oh, right."

    If you ever want to see Hank Azaria in another funny role, watch him in the movie "The Birdcage" as the housekeeper Agadore! lol
