Friends: 10 Best Characters Only In One Episode

Who shone the most during their brief stint on the show?

Back in its early days, it didn't take long for Friends to become one of the most successful comedy shows of all time, with its second season regularly drawing in over 30 million viewers with ease.

Due to its status as one of the kings of television, the sitcom could basically snag any celebrity it wanted for a quick cameo or supporting role, and sure enough, Friends is littered with memorable guest stars from its first episode to its very last.

Whether it's Bruce Willis as the scary father of Ross' young girlfriend, Gary Oldman as the drunk actor with a penchant for spitting, or Adam Goldberg as Chandler's crazy roommate Eddie, these multi-episode guest characters are generally remembered the most - only natural, since we've seen a lot of them - but Friends also contains plenty of gems who only showed up for a single episode, never to be seen again.

It's easy to forget about some of these characters since most of them only had one or two scenes, but they deserve a spot in the Friends hall of fame just as much as anyone else does.
