The One With All the Poker

This showdown between the men and women over a game of poker is one of the first classic episodes of the series where every character gets a chance to shine. This solidified the hang-out vibe of the series, and it’s no wonder it was watched by so many — it sets the tone for the rest of the series and the way the characters feel like your very own friends.

Total Viewers: 30.362 million

19. “The One With Two Parts, Part 2” (Season 1, Episode 17)

Total Viewers: 30.476 million

18. “The One Where Ross Finds Out” (Season 2, Episode 7)

The One Where Ross Finds Out

Total Viewers: 30.734 million

16. “The One After Ross Says Rachel” (Season 5, Episode 1)

The One After Ross Says Rachel
