My Favorite Friends Moments

My Favorite Friends Moments

*Cue the FRIENDS theme song*


Friends is a tv show that I will always love. I always watched reruns when it was on and fell in love with the characters and humor of the show. One day a few summers ago, my mom came home with a box of each friends season on DVD from a yard sale, and I binge watched the entire 10 seasons throughout the year. I still watch reruns or pick my favorite episodes on Netflix whenever I need a good laugh or something to watch. These are my personal top moments of FRIENDS (in no particular order) - the funniest ones, the cutest ones, and the iconic ones.

1. Ross and his tan that goes really wrong

This is one of the scenes that always cracks me up. My dad and I watched it together once and we were both find it hysterical. Not to mention that we get to hear some of Chandler's classic sarcasm at its finest. S(Season 10, Episode 3, The One With Ross's Tan)

2. Joey learning to speak French

I took French for six years, so Joey's epic fail at speaking the language (despite his confidence) brings back some interesting memories of my class with my friends. And Phoebe's frustration makes it even better. (Season 10, Episode 13, The One Where Joey Speaks French)

3. "See? He's her lobster!"

First of all, any of the flashbacks to the friend's high school or college years are great. But the episode is especially one of my favorites! (Season 2, Episode 13, The One With The Prom Video)

4. Joey and his game show fail

Everyone loves Joey's cluelessness! (Season 10, Episode 11, The One Where the Stripper Cries)

5. When Rachel, Phoebe and Ross find out about Chandler and Monica's relationship

(Season 5, Episode 13, The One Where Everyone Finds Out)

6. Ross "flipping off"

Ross explains that he used this gesture instead of his middle finger so his parents would not know he was flipping Monica off, which is carried through a lot of the episodes. (Season 4, Episode 5, The One With Joey's New Girl Friend)

7. Ross and Monica showing off their moves

Ross and Monica try to get to the front of the New Year's Rocking Eve show as background dancers with a dance routine they created together in their childhood...sibling goals! (Season 6, Episode 10, The One With the Routine)

8. Dinosaurs vs. Fashion debate

Ross's "Jurassic Parka" joke and reenactment makes me laugh every time! This episode overall has a lot of great scenes. (Season 3, Episode 14, The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner")

9. Fun Aunt Rachel

Rachel teaches Ben some pranks to put on Ross, but when she goes to explain why he needs to stop, she accidentally teaches Ben some inappropriate language that Ross does not appreciate. Little baby Cole Spouse is so cute! (Season 7, Episode 16, The One with the Truth About London)

10. Monica's competitive ping ponging

The hair. The competition. Love it. (Season 9, Episode 23, The One in Barbados Part One)

11. I like big butts and I cannot lie

Ross can only get Emma to sing with a very interesting song choice. (Season 9, Episode 7, The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song)

12. Ross and Rachel's first kiss!

Makes my heart melt. (Season 2, Episode 7, The One Where Ross Finds Out)

13. Ross and his keyboard

(Season 4, Episode 7, The One Where Chandler Crosses the Line)

14. Joey's Thanksgiving pants

Oh Joey...his love for food is always priority. (Season 8, Episode 9, The One With the Rumor)

15. Joey's "dirty talk" lesson

When Ross can't seem to talk smooth to his new girl friend, Joey gives him some pointers... and helps role play. Awkward...(Season 1, Episode 16, The One With the Stoned Guy)

16. Unagi

Do I need to say anything more? (Season 6, Episode 17, The One With Unagi)

17. Roommate goals

I love this bromance moment between Joey and Chandler (Season 2, Episode 19, The One Where Eddie Won't Go)

18. The Holiday Armadillo

Ross explains Hannukah to Ben. And then when he can't find a Santa outfit, he improvises. (Season 7, Episode 10, The One With The Holiday Armadillo)

*The scene starts at 1:40 of the video

19. The trifle

(Season 6, Episode 9, The One Where Ross Gets High)

20. Chandler professes his love to Monica cute. (Season 5, Episode 14, The One Where Everyone Finds Out)

There are so many great moments in Friends that it was almost impossible to put together my favorites. Which scenes are your favorite?

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
