When it comes to festive holiday television, no one does it did it quite like Friends. The hit sitcom gifted us with ten Thanksgiving-themed episodes (one for every season). 

From the episode where they all play football together to the one where Monica locks everyone out of her apartment, it doesn’t get better than when the crew is celebrating the holiday Chandler hates the most: Thanksgiving. 

In honor of Turkey Day being right around the corner, we compiled a list of all of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes from season 1 to season 10.

So, whether you’re just trying to get into the holiday spirit, or you’re waiting for your turkey to be taken out of the oven, allow this to be your bingeing guide for the Thanksgiving season.
