Lets be real--Friends was/still is one of the only shows that actually gave Thanksgiving the love it deserves. 

So let's go back to a time when life was simpler, phones weren't smart and the Central Perk was the place to be.

 

1. "THE ONE WITH ALL THE THANKSGIVINGS" (SEASON 5)

Between the flashbacks and Monica's turkey head...come on. This one is a CLASSIC episode. (btw, this epsiode turns 20 this year!)

 

2. "THE ONE WITH CHANDLER IN A BOX" (SEASON 4)

Honestly, this is such dedication and there's a few family members I'd like to put in a box for the duration of Thanksgiving dinner, but alas.

 

3. "THE ONE WHERE ROSS GOT HIGH" (SEASON 6)

Ah! All the secrets get spilled and I'm just a sucker for all the tea ~

 

4. "THE ONE WITH THE FOOTBALL" (SEASON 3)

As someone who never EVER plays football on Thanksgiving, this just reminded me that I'm not missing out.

 

5. "THE ONE WITH THE RUMOR" (SEASON 8) 

Because Brad Pitt. Duh. Also his dismay for his (then irl) girlfriend is so good.

 

6. "THE ONE WHERE UNDERDOG GETS AWAY" (SEASON 1)

Season 1 and they're all BABIES!!! As a single, 20-something, this episode feels the most relatable of what it's *really* like to spend the day away from the fam.

 

7. "THE ONE WITH RACHEL'S OTHER SISTER" (SEASON 9)

I mean, Christina Applegate is no Resse Witherspoon, but the sisterly...uh...love...is still thriving.

 

8. "THE ONE WITH THE LATE THANKSGIVING" (SEASON 10)

Ugh. This one was just sadddd and you could feel the dreaded end coming. 

 

9. "THE ONE WHERE CHANDLER DOESN'T LIKE DOGS" (SEASON 7)

This one is pretty forgettable, tbh. BUT! It does lead into some classic holiday episodes like "TOW the Holiday Armadillo" and "TOW All the Cheesecakes."

 

10. "THE ONE WITH THE LIST" (SEASON 2)

Probably before they really *knew* Thanksgiving episodes would be a yearly thing, this one hardly has any Thanksgiving vibes, but we'll count it anyway.
