20 Worst Episodes of Friends Ever Made (According to the Internet)
“The One Where Rachel Quits” – 8.1
After more than two seasons as a waitress in Central Perk, this episode is the one that starts Rachel on her career in the fashion industry. In that respect, the episode is pretty pivotal, but the rest of the friends are focused on pretty normal hijinks otherwise.
Ross starts working with a girl scout to sell cookies in order to win her a trip to space camp. Meanwhile, Phoebe jeopardizes Joey’s job selling Christmas trees when she becomes upset about the fact that they’re cut down and taken away from their homes. It’s an episode that plays more as set up for future events than anything else.
