The Funniest Episode In The Whole Series!
17 August 2008 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

It's the 5th time I'm watching this episode, and frankly, I realize I can't get enough of it.

The laughs start from the moment the Geller parents arrive. They start off with the story of how Ross pulled on his testicles so hard out of jealousy at Monica's first birthday, and the penis shaped cake, and Phoebe's book reading. Actually the funniest part is when Joey is trying to stop people from leaving the party, from Joey and Phoebe following Chandler to the bathroom, and the showdown of the toys.

Some of the memorable lines:

Chandler: There's this thing I really want us to do I read in Maxim.

Monica : What are you barking at?

Chandler: They left!

Judy : I remember your first birthday, Ross was jealous of all the attention you were getting, he pulled on his testicles so hard,we had to take him to the emergency room!

Jack : I know what you're thinking Judy, the resemblance is uncanny!

Ross : I am this close to tugging on my testicles again!

Ross : What if we cut the baby's face off the penis, and move it on the bunny. Okay that's a weird sentence!

Monica : Another way to organize your toys is by size.

Chandler: Did I just impart wisdom?


Other notable funny episodes include "The One With Ross's Grant" and "The One Where They Stay Up All Night"
