  • Best episode of season four and one of the top five of the whole series.

    This episode was so hysterically funny. This episode mostly got back to just the friends hanging out with each other, and the trivia/quiz game gave us little tidbits about the characters that we don't get to see, things that are offscreen, and it was so funny. The cast bounced off each other so well, especially while switching turns at the Lightning Round, where they're palming each other--a classic Friends gesture. (I know it's not palms, but I didn't know what else to call it, lol.) This episode definitely rejuvinated the entire season.

    Ah, who can forget the Phoebe's pregnancy storyline? This was a great way for the show to write in Lisa Kudrow's pregnancy, instead of trying to hide it like a lot of shows do, and not change things too much. She was a surrogate for her brother. Sweet, touching, and done in a very funny way as well.

    Few episodes top this one, ever.
