  • Season eight finale.

    Part 1 of the finale surely did not disappoint. Rachel freaking out that all the pregnant women are delivering before her was absolutely hilarious. Jennifer Aniston is still doing a great job as pregnant Rachel. A lot of things are setting up for the cliffhanger here, which you can completely tell.

    Chandler ready to have a baby, possibility of Ross & Rachel getting together since they're hanging the kiss from the last episode over our heads. And with Ross' engagement ring from his mother, he is definitely thinking about it. Of course there has to be a plot twist in a finale, but that's not until the next episode. Phoebe asking a man with a cast things about himself because she likes him was hilarious. Joey pretending to be a real doctor completely fit: Dr. Drake Ramoray at your service. Of course this is only part one of the finale, so there has to be some kind of cliffhanger. Who haven't we seen all season? Who appears every season in some way? Who is incredibly annoying to the Friends group? That's right, Janice. The writers managed to make this episode 10x better by bringing Janice in, and a great cliffhanger in syndication. Great episode.
