Picking a favorite Friends episode is a hard task. With 10 seasons and 236 episodes, there are always at least a handful that are classed the funniest or most special, depending on who you're talking to.

If Joey, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe could answer, it would be interesting to hear what their favorite episodes were. Glamour recently asked David Schwimmer, and he mentioned a pretty damn good one.

“I don’t know if I’d say it was my absolute favorite episode, but I loved doing ‘The One With the Blackout.’”

“That was a memorable one, but honestly, there are so many.”

It's the episode where Ross gets candid about his crush on Rachel, but Joey deems him the Mayor of the Friend Zone because he waited too long to make a move. When Ross finally tries to express his feelings, a cat attacks him before he can get it out.

The gang proceeds to sing “Top of the World” by the Carpenters while Ross unknowingly battles with the cat on the balcony in the background. Before he can save face, Rachel ends up with Paolo.

The episode is apparently a favorite of Miss Chanandler Bong too! Matthew Perry referred to it on The Graham Norton Show, saying...

“That episode really made me think that we were doing something special. I could see the others in the apartment, and the audience was really laughing, and it just felt like the right thing.”

Like the rest of the living world, Schwimmer found it hard to mention only one favorite and also gives an honorable mention to another episode:

“’The One With the Holiday Armadillo’ was fun! I mean, it was really fun!
I hope to one day show my daughter that episode.”

I adore Friends so I can write a list as long as my arm of episodes that send me into hysterics but if I had to share just one with you now, it would be 'The One with Ross's Tan.' Can't cope.

And now I'm off to binge watch all 10 seasons.
