  • The epitome of greatest "Friends" episodes!

    "The One with the Embryos" is the epitome of the greatest episodes in "Friends" history. To call it the single greatest would do disrespect to the several other fine contending episodes, but if you were to watch only one "Friends" episode ever, which would be a sin might I add, this is the one. The hilarious start to Phoebe's pregnancy of her brother's triplets is overshadowed by a jeopardy-questionaire type game that erupts between the guys and the girls. What starts out as an innocent competition between Joey & Chandler and Rachel & Monica to find out which couple knows more personal information about the other, turns into an all out gamble, in which if the guys win, they claim Monica & Rachel's apartment, and if the girls win, the chick, now developing into a rooster, and the duck must be given up by the guys. With Ross creating the questions for the game, we are taken into the depths of hilarious mis-haps, cruel nicknames, favorite movies, and the suspense of who will win the winner-take-all contest. The contest itself and its outcome turns out to be a pivot point for the fourth season of "Friends," arguably the shows best season, which should have you in an uproar of laughter and pure fun. A True Delight!
