F.R.I.E.N.D.S has been one of the most popular sitcom series for as long as one can remember. Running for 10 seasons, the show had everyone on the ground laughing, sometimes with a box full of tissue papers crying. And within no time, it became a part of everyone’s celebration. Apart from being known for its immensely popular characters- Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler, and Ross, some actors also gave a cameo and it was loved by everyone. Let’s shed light on some of the memorable one-episode characters of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
The One With The Male Nanny – Season 9, Episode 6
F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans loved the complicated relationship between Ross and Rachel. But when a one-night stand went a little too far and Rachel got pregnant, the show went to new highs. In the episode, the search for a nanny for Ross and Rachel’s daughter comes to an end when we get introduced to a male nanny. Sandy, played by Freddie Prinze Jr., defied the stereotypes of female nanny and became a quick hit amongst the audience. Notably, the character was introduced on the 200th episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
The One With The Screamer – Season 3, Episode 22
In season 3, we meet Tommy, played by Ben Stiller, as Rachel’s unlikeable boyfriend. Why did no one, excluding Rachel, like him? Because he only pretended to be cool and calm in front of everyone, but behind closed doors, he had some real-time anger issues. However, he does not last for long, as Rachel dumps him by the end of the episode as he unleashes his anger on the duck and chick, unfortunately, in front of Rachel.
The One With The Rumor – Season 8, Episode 9
Everyone must remember Brad Pitt from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. He played Will from the thanksgiving party. Thanks to Ross, who invited him over and made it one of the most unforgettable episodes of the show. Will has an unresolved grudge towards Rachel and makes the entire party completely vile but funny for us. Apparently, Rachel does not even remember Will. The interesting thing to note is that Brad Pitt was dating Jennifer Aniston (Rachel) at the time and to see him playing as one of the one-episode characters was fun.
The One After The Superbowl, Part 1 – Season 2, Episode 12
We all are fans of certain or many people, but no one can be a fan like Erika Ford, played by Brooke Shields. Erika is the crazy obsessed fan of Dr. Drake Ramoray from Days of Our Lives. Even though Joey knew that she was pretty crazy, not about him but Dr. Drake Ramoray. He went out on a date, there she displayed an excessive level of obsession. Everyone vividly remembers this character because Erika was the only woman Joey met and was trying to run away from.
The One Where The Stripper Cries – Season 10 Episode 11
F.R.I.E.N.D.S always broke various societal stereotypes in one way or the other and in a funny manner. This brings us down to the iconic male stripper Officer Goodbody, played by Danny DeVito. As soon as he started performing at Monica’s bachelorette party, no one liked him. But then our kind Phoebe asked him to perform one last time out of sheer pity. DeVito’s cameo became a hit amongst his fans and, to-date, remains one of the most iconic cameos ever as one-episode characters.
