3. Season 4, Episode 12: The One with the Embryos (1998)

Although the title of this episode refers to Phoebe helping to implant her brother’s embryos, this episode’s biggest talking point was Rachel and Monica losing out on their apartment to the boys in a high-risk quiz game. This episode spawned many quotable lines, such as ‘Miss Chanandler Bong’, and Chandler’s fathers burlesque stage name, ‘Viva Las Gay-gas’.

Rating: 9.5

IMDB votes: 7,170

4. Season 2, Episode 14: The One with the Prom Video (1996)

The episode that saw the birth of Ross and Rachel’s relationship placed fourth in the most talked-about episodes of the show. In more recent years, flashback episodes have also caused some controversy as fans point out some of the jokes aimed at Monica tend to fat-shame her.
