Ross is obviously the best Friend - do you agree?

My colleague and I are big Friends fan's and cannot understand how people would have anyone else but Ross as their number 1! He has all the best lines "My Sandwich" "PIVOT" "I'M AN 8" "Oonagi"...the list goes on - and all the funniest bits! Who is your favourite and why?! P.S. If it's not Ross I don't agree smile

Those are classic lines

I'm with Rachel though, I still want to be hersmile

Erm, Ross is not a very well liked character by a lot of people on MN. He is really not a very nice person and treats women appallingly.

The least worst Friend is Chandler IMO.

Ross is controlling, homophobic and dismissive of other people's accomplishments. It shocked me quite how bad he was when we rewatched recently.

MismatchedStripySocks Wed 11-Jul-18 13:32:59

Nope, Chandler and Monica definitely.

Those bits are funny but no, Ross really wasn't a very nice person.

Ross isn't always likeable but he is by far the funniest friend and is portrayed by the best actor. All the best Friends moments are Ross (PIVOT, teeth, sandwich, I'm fine, tan). I also love Ross and Joey together.

Ross is great TV.

Terrible person, though.

Ross had some good moments - David Schwimmer was the best physical comic of the six - but was controlling, jealous and whiny. I far preferred Chandler. Joey was a bit of a sex pest and so thick that I don't know what women saw in him!

AdelaideK Wed 11-Jul-18 13:39:15

Yes I agree. Ross is hilarious

SneakyGremlins Wed 11-Jul-18 13:40:35

Rachel for me. Everyone says she's a spoilt bitch but she wasn't by the later seasons.

Ross is an emotionally abusive cunt.

I thought David Schwimmer was the best actor. Didn't really have favourite out of the regular Friends. I always liked episodes when Jack and Judy Geller made an appearance, and Rachel's sister, Amy.

SneakyGremlins Wed 11-Jul-18 13:42:44

I secretly really like Janice blush

FrayedHem Wed 11-Jul-18 13:44:44

Janice! of course Janice.

Raspberry88 Wed 11-Jul-18 13:59:31

No, Monica is the best.

Babybearsporij Wed 11-Jul-18 14:05:14

Nooooooo. I love Chandler and Joey. I've always been a bit meh about Ross. I like Phoebe more and more each time I watch it as well.

AlwaysWantedToBeATenenbaum Wed 11-Jul-18 14:36:53

Wow I didn't realise Ross was such a Mumsnet villain!! Surely Joey is worse than Ross in the way he treats women!!!
I think as I'm getting older I love Phoebe more and I don't know why but I think Monica is definitely my favourite of the girls.

user1483387154 Wed 11-Jul-18 14:38:42

Chandler for me

Ross is vile, an abusive, manipulative, selfish, immature wanker of a man. He should have ended up with Phoebe, the two of them deserved a shit life with one another.

gingergenius Wed 11-Jul-18 14:40:15

Phoebe individually but phoebe and mike as my favourite couple!

gingergenius Wed 11-Jul-18 14:40:49

My ex is just like Ross. 😬

AlwaysWantedToBeATenenbaum Wed 11-Jul-18 14:42:50

@gingergenius oh Mike! Him playing the air piano is amazing

KellyBailey Wed 11-Jul-18 14:43:13

Ross is awful. I liked Joey in the first couple of series before they dumbed him down. The speaking French episode was piss poor writing. Phoebe was just a snide cow, always dropping bitchy little put downs about everyone except Joey into conversation then acting like nothing happened. She was nicer in the first couple of series too, when she was just kooky new age girl.

Fireproof Wed 11-Jul-18 14:44:05

Ross is a shit-weasel.
I think Chandler and Rachel were the least irredeemable.

KellyBailey Wed 11-Jul-18 14:45:03

I'll happily watch any Richard episode though.
