TV Meme: Day 20 - Favorite Kiss

There have been a ton of monumental kisses in television history. Kirk and Uhura; Ross and Rachel; Grey and McDreamy; Winnie and Kevin; and the list goes on.

My kiss selection is a little different because it really isn't the start of a relationship, or even sexual at all. It is just the true reason behind it that makes it so great.

I decided to pick - not Ross and Rachel, but Ross (David Schwimmer) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc) in Friends.


Well, there was an episode in in season two entitled The One With Barry and Mindy's Wedding. Joey was auditioning for a role in which he had to kiss another man and he asked Ross to help him rehearse. Ross was completely against the kiss the entire episode.

As he finally thinks it through, Ross rushes into Joey's apartment and plants one on him. It turns out that the audition had already happened and Joey didn't get the part, but it is this that makes Friends so true to real life (in relationship terms). They would do anything they can for a friend. In shows past Joey even helps Ross learn to talk dirty to a girlfriend - and gets completely embarrassed as Chandler walks in. But, that is what friends do - they do things completely off the wall if their friends need them, and Ross proved that in this episode.

Here is the kiss - it takes a while to get there, but if you want to see what I am talking about just check it out. This was the best clip of the part that I could find.
