6. Season 1: The One Where Underdog Gets Away
If that’s not a great title for an episode I don’t know what is! You guessed it folks, the Underdog balloon gets loose during the Macy’s day parade and the entire gang goes up to the roof to watch. But before all that, everyone chipped in to buy Rachel a ticket to Vale to go skiing with her parents, Joey is featured on a poster for VD, Chandler hates Thanksgiving (more on that later), and Ross is dealing with his first Thanksgiving away from mommy. But back to underdog, when the gang returns from their trip to the roof it’s recognized that emphasizing one little word can change the course of an entire evening (Got the keys. or Got the keeeeys?) and everyone is locked out of Monica’s apartment. Rachel has to miss out on Vale and thus the tradition of everyone spending Thanksgiving together begins!

It ends sweetly though with Chandler proclaiming his love for Monica for the first time.
