20 Worst Episodes of Friends Ever Made (According to the Internet)
“The One Where the Monkey Gets Away” – 8.1
Another episode focused on Marcel, this one follows Rachel as she’s tasked with babysitting the monkey but eventually loses him when she’s taking out his poop. The rest of the episode is spent searching for him while Ross prepares to tell Rachel that he has feelings for her.
The episode is frustrating because it never gives him the chance to do so, and also because it’s so focused on the monkey. Friends realized pretty quickly that Marcel wasn’t totally necessary to make the show work. Thankfully, when they made that realization, they decided to get rid of him almost immediately. We’ve got to believe the reason it’s not lower on the list of bad Friends episodes is because Rachel’s outfit is one of her most iconic.
