Lisa Kudrow's Favorite 'Friends' Episode Will Bring You Back To An Epic Phoebe & Ross Moment
You aren't the only one who has a Friends episode you love more than all of the rest. While chatting with E! News, Lisa Kudrow revealed her favorite Friends episode. It may not be one you would immediately think of, but it definitely features an unforgettable Ross and Phoebe moment. "When Ross was learning to play, wanted to play the bagpipes," Kudrow confessed through spits of laughter. "He says, 'Sing along,' and Phoebe does. And he's playing 'Celebrate' by Kool and the Gang. It's so stupid and funny."
She's right — it is a ridiculously funny scene. It happened during Season 7, Episode 15, "The One With Joey's New Brain." Ross informs Monica and Chandler he has a surprise for their wedding, which turns out to be him playing the bagpipes. He's beyond horrible and, of course, Monica and Chandler don't allow him to play.
The moment Kudrow is referring to happens at the end of the episode. Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Rachel are sitting on the couch, while Ross auditions the bagpipe version of "Celebration." Monica and Chandler look not impressed with Ross whatsoever. As for Phoebe, she started singing along, but not in the way you might imagine. Finally, there is Rachel — Jennifer Aniston clearly had a hard time keeping it together, because she tries to hide the fact that she is laughing while in character.
What makes Kudrow's answer even better is that the way she laughed during the E! interview is the same exact way she laughed during a blooper with the bagpipes. Similar to Aniston laughing during the actual scene, everyone loses it in the blooper, including Kudrow, who laughs hysterically. It is probably the best Friends outtake ever.
If you haven't seen it, you can watch it above. It's so good, you'll probably cry from laughing so hard right alongside Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Aniston, and Kudrow. Yeah, now I totally get why this is Kudrow's favorite Friends episode. Who could forget it?
