    1) My absolute favorite part of the Friends series was Marcel the monkey. Every time he was involved with the show, he brought joy, laughter, or sadness.

    2) The chick and the duck. What more do I have to say?

    Anybody else?

    Going commando.

    (Especially funny was Joey's knee bends in "all" of Chandler's clothing.)[​IMG]

    LOL. "Pivot!Pivot!" was also hillarious.

    Any scene that delt with Pottery Barn.

    "I knew it!" - When Chandler yelled that he was behind the door when Ross and Rachael were argueing and she brought up the time he had limp dik.

    Ross' leather pants.

    When Ross was going to take Rachael to the Prom flashback.

    Ross (in gameshow host voice) - "What was Monica's nickname when she was a field hockey goalie?"
    Joey - "Big Fat Goalie!"

    Ross (ditto) - "What is the name of Chandler's father's gay Las Vegas Revue?"
    Monica - "Viva Las Gaygas!"

    - The Bet, the best Friends episode ever!

    Rachel - "Who's George Stephanopoulos?"
    Phoebe - "Oh, that's Big Bird's friend."

    Monica - "The camera adds ten pounds!"
    Chandler - "And exactly how many cameras are on you?"

    Phoebe - "See, he's her lobster."

    Phoebe: Yeah, but they don't know we know they know we know. And Joey, you can't tell them!

    Joey: (confused) Even if I wanted to!

    Chandler in the box.

    Eating Rachel's trifle: "It tastes like feet!"

    "Smelly Cat" and other hits by Phoebe Buffay.

    Ugly Naked Guy (hmm, maybe that was Richard Hatch who used to live in Ross' apartment).

    and these running gags never fail to make me laugh:

    Joey: "How you doin'?"

    Ross: "We were on a break!"

    I love the "We were on a break." running joke, especially when the Englishman on the plan said it to Rachael.

    Joey: A TV that appears as if from nowhere! That's the dream!

    Chandler: Oh, y’know-y’know what, I was looking at it upside down.
    Rachel: Well, y’know, sometimes that helps.

    Monica: All right. Umm, you could uh start out with a little 1, a 2, a 1-2-3, 3, 5, a 4, a 3-2, 2, a 2-4-6, 2-4-6, 4, 2, 2, 4-7, 5-7, 6-7, 7, …7..…7…7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7…(mouths 7)!

    Chandler: Yeah, can I get a 3-piece, some cole slaw, some beans, and a Coke-(Yelps in pain as Monica grabs him underwater)-Diet Coke.

    Ross: You're mine Green.
    Rachel: Your fly is open Gellar.

    Gunter had some slapstick stuff too.

    [Scene: A Gym, Pete is training for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, with his trainer, Hoshi.]

    Hoshi: You are iron. You are steel! Let me ask you something, how come when I call your computer support line, I have to wait an hour and a half?

    Pete: I told you, we’re adding new operators all the time. Could we concentrate on my training?

    Hoshi: It’s just hard when I know I have e-mail I can’t get!

    Monica: (entering) Hi!

    Pete: Monica! (runs over and kisses her) Hi honey.

    Hoshi: All right, on the table. (Pete gets on the table for his rubdown)

    Monica: Hey, umm, so listen umm, my friends were telling me a little about this ah, ultimate fighting thing and it, well it sounds really dangerous. I-I don’t want you to get hurt, ‘cause I kinda like you.

    Pete: Oh, believe me, I don’t want to get hurt either. I’m being smart about this. See these guys? They’re the best trainers in the world, and Hoshi here used to be a paid assassin. (Hoshi yells at him in Chinese) A house painter! He used to be a house painter.

    Monica: Promise me you’ll be careful.

    Pete: I promise.

    Monica: Hey, are we still on for tonight?

    Pete: Yeah.

    Monica: Okay, good, ‘cause umm, well maybe we could have a little workout of our own...

    Hoshi: No! No boom-boom before big fight!

    Monica: How ‘bout just a boom?

    ----

    [Scene: The Arena, after the fight. Monica is walking up to a defeated Pete.]

    Monica: Hey! (she sits down next to him) It’s me. Mon-i-ca! Can I just tell you how proud I am of you.

    Pete: It would be nice after hearing 20,000 people chant “You suck!”

    Monica: I mean I-I thought you were nuts at first, but you-you did it. And now you can just look back at this thing with no regrets.

    Pete: What, look back?

    Monica: Well, you’re not gonna get going are you?

    Pete: Well let me ask you a question. Am I the Ultimate Fighting Champion?

    Monica: Well, no. But...

    Pete: Well I’m not gonna stop until I’m the Ultimate Fighting Champion.

    Monica: That guy stood on your neck until you passed out!

    Pete: Let me tell you a story. When I set out to create Moss 865, do you think it just happened overnight? No. There was Moss 1, that burnt down my Dad’s garage, there was Moss 2 that would only schedule appointments in January, and 862 others that I learned from, just like I learned from this fight, never to let a guy stand on my neck.

    Monica: You didn’t know that already?

    Pete: Look, I’m gonna get better. Okay? I promise you.

    Monica: Okay, just get a lot better. (pause) Fast.

    Pete: Oh, one other thing. Hoshi thinks that you being ringside may have affected my concentration.

    Monica: Yeah. That-that was the problem.

    ---------

    [Scene: A locker room, Pete is in a full upper-body cast. Monica enters, sees him, and gasps. Pete tries to turn around, and winces in pain.]

    Pete: It’s okay, it’s not as bad as it looks, it’s a precaution. Ah, I’m not supposed to move my spine.

    Monica: Please tell me you’re stopping now.

    Pete: I’m fine! I’d fight tonight, if they’d let me. (stands up and starts swinging his arms) See this circle I’m marking off here? This is my zone of terror.

    Monica: You are insane! You-you gotta give this up!

    Pete: I can’t until I’m the ultimate fighter. I will do it. I’m telling you, the day will come when children will argue over who will win a fight, me or Superman. Now, I’m not saying I could beat Superman, but y'know, kids are stupid.

    Monica: Sit down. All right? Please, just listen to me. You are terrible at this! Okay? You are the worst ultimate fighter ever! Ever!!

    Pete: Y'know I have a torn rotator cuff, a hairline fracture in my right forearm, and a severely bruised Adam’s Apple, but that really hurt.

    Monica: Well then, y'know what? I care about you to much to watch you hurt yourself like this. So if you have to do this, then you’re gonna have to do it without me.

    Pete: Well if you’re asking me to quit, then you’re asking me to be someone I’m not. I’ve got to do this.

    Monica: Then I’ve gotta go. Bye. (kisses him and starts to walk out)

    Pete: Mon-Monica?

    Monica: Yes?

    Pete: Could you leave a note? ‘Cause I’m on a lot of pain killers now, and I don’t know if I’ll remember this tomorrow.

    -When Rachel kissed Ross after seeing the prom video (the best TV kiss ever)
    -"Because when Joey gave it to me, he said, 'This is because I know you like rabbits and I know you like cheese.'"
    -"Om-nipotent, Joey."
    -"There's a deer just outside eating fruit from the orchard!"
    -Joey and the Toblerone candy
    -The Mr. Beaumont
    -Susie Underpants
    -Isabella Rossellini: "But it's laminated!"
    -The end of the apartment-switch plotline: "Totally worth it!" "Goodnight!"
    -"Top of the world, lookin' down on creation...."

    And so many, many more.

    I don't think Marcel could possibly be a jump-the-shark factor, as his existence was in season one of a ten-year show, and most people's fond memories of the show (as indicated by the lists already posted) include a lot of things from after he was gone from the show. His return appearance (as a movie star monkey in "The One After the Super Bowl") was in only the second season.

    3)

    [Scene: Chandler and Joey's and Ross's, Chandler is entering and when he closes the door Joey pops his head out of the fort like before, but this time he's wearing a cowboy hat.]

    Chandler: Well, I see you've had a very productive day. Don't you think the cowboy hat is a little much?

    Ross: (popping up behind Joey wearing an Indian headdress) Come on, it's fun!

    Chandler: All right! (He joins them in the fort and comes up putting on a bonnet.) Isn't this a woman's hat?

    Joey: Dude, stop talking crazy and make us some tea!

    Jeff, that wasn't Chandler's line. Joey had said that before the line about digging the hole.

    Chandler walking into the girls' apartment with the new mustache trying to look like Richard. Laugh my @$$ off every time I see it!
