Growing up, Friends was essential Thursday night viewing. For 10 years we watched the hilarious misadventures of Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Ross and Rachel.

Since going off the air in 2004, the show has managed to maintain a cult following and is, quite literally, on at least one television station every hour of the day through reruns.

With their place rightful stamped in the pop culture lexicon (just trying listening to I’ll Be There for You by the Rembrandts without clapping…yah you know when), it’s only right that in honor of the gang’s recent reunion in the upcoming James Burrows tribute special on NBC this Feb. 21 we count down the greatest guest stars in the history of the show.

Why are guest stars so important? Well, frankly, when you talk about most popular episodes of Friends, they are in one. So here’s to the best of the best and even the ones we forgot until this list was made.


Ben Stiller

Appearance: Season 3, The One With the Screamer

For one episode in season 3 Ben Stiller guest starred as Tommy, a guy dating Rachel. Tommy is a nice guy but only in front of Rachel. In reality he is filled with rage and scares away anyone who comes near him by viciously screaming at them. After losing his cool in front of the gang over Joey and Chandler’s pet chicken, he breaks up with Rachel never to be seen again.

Reason We Love Him: He asked us nicely viciously yelled at us to put him on this list.
