Friends, ''The One Hundredth''
A.K.A. ''The One Where Phoebe Gives Birth to her Brother's Triplets,'' finishing off one of the sitcom's most memorable arcs and giving Lisa Kudrow a chance to really show off her range as an actress. (Kudrow, who had just won a supporting statuette at the Emmys, submitted this episode for the next year's awards; though she got a nomination, she ultimately lost to Kristen Johnston of 3rd Rock from the Sun.) Sure, there's also some important Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) business and a truly great Joey subplot (''kidney stooones)...but what we'll always remember from this half hour is a teary, exhausted Phoebe holding those babies close, knowing that her time with them has finally come to an end.
