Sitcoms help you laugh when you feel down or just want something to laugh about. Seinfeld and Friends are the sitcoms to watch and something you need to laugh about. As you watch the sitcoms, do you ever wonder why they look so much alike? Or wonder the opposite. The sitcom, Seinfeld, a TV show that is hosted by a standup comedian by Jerry Seinfeld and his New York City friends care about their pride and how their storyline is very diverse and can be realistic at times.
However, the other sitcom Friends are more personal of the 6. Ross and his friends storyline are forever ongoing. Although Seinfeld pride herself/himself on their diverse storyline and his New York City friends, nevertheless, Friends revolve around relationships and their friendships.
In Seinfeld, season 5, the episode 5 “The Marine Biologist” Jerry runs into George college crush Diane, and he tells her George is now a marine biologist. So Diane asks Jerry for George number, and now George has to pretend he’s a marine biologist when actually he doesn’t know anything about being one.
In Friends, season 5, episode, 16 “The One with the Cop” Phoebe find a police officer’s badge and go commandos with the badge, until she meets up with the owner, Gary, and she freaks out. Throughout these episodes of these sitcoms, one of the friends decides to pretend to be something they weren’t. These two sitcoms showed a diverse story going on.
Continuing on, in Friends Season 4, episode 12 “The One with The Embryos,” Phoebe go through an embryo implant procedure to become a substitute mother for her brother and his wife.
While Phoebe goes through that procedure, Monica and Rachel gamble their apartment in a trivia game against Chandler and Joey. Monica raises the stakes, if the women win, Joey and Chandler must give away their birds. Chandler then suggests Rachel and Monica to give up their apartment to them, which Monica agrees to without asking Rachel. Unfortunately, the girls lose the lightning round and the boys win. As the four pack up their apartments, Rachel disagree about switching apartments. Later with packing, another pregnancy test. The boys and the girls begin to argue along with Ross, which is then cut short when Phoebe comes out from the bathroom and cheerfully announces she is pregnant.
The mood turned into a celebration. Now in Seinfeld season 5, the episode two “The Puffy Shirt”, Kramer is dating a woman name, Leslie, who nobody can hear due to her low speaking voice. When Jerry and Elaine have dinner with them, Kramer explains that Leslie is a fashion designer and has designed a new puffy shirt. After Elaine tells Leslie that Jerry is making an appearance on The Today Show to promote the shirt for the homeless, Leslie says something in response that they couldn’t hear. To be polite, Jerry and Elaine nod their heads. However, the next day, Kramer delivers the shirt to Jerry, who then realize that he has agreed to wear Leslie’s puffy shirt on The Today Show. So during The Today Show, the host kept making fun of Jerry’s shirt, driving Jerry to angrily announce it on air which made Leslie mad, who then finally raises her voice to call Jerry a “bastard!”in anger. Through these episodes of these two sitcoms, even though they have arguments about switching apartments or their friends girlfriend can’t seem to speak any louder. They still don’t say anything about it and support that friend and his girlfriend, and try to understand.
Or even though they’re in a hot debate about the apartments, they’re still there with the other friend and congratulating her on getting pregnant. That’s how their story is based on their friendship. Now in season 3, episodes three “The Pen” in Seinfeld, Jerry and Elaine goes to Florida to visit Jerry’s parents at the Pines for the weekend and plan on going scuba diving. Jack and his wife Doris come over to write Jerry dad a check since a previous night’s dinner and Jerry notices Jack’s pen. When Jerry asks Jack about it, Jack tells him that it can write upside down and that astronauts uses it in space. Jack offers an interest to Jerry with the pen. Jerry refuses his offer several times, but Jack persists and Jerry finally gives in. Jerry mom asks why he took the pen and says he should give it back because Doris will tell everyone in the condo that Jerry made Jack give it to him.
Later on the day, Jack comes over again and Jerry returns the pen. Jerry dad berates Jack for “taking Jerry’s pen.” Now in season 3, episodes 2 “The One Where No One’s Ready” in Friends, Ross arrives at Monica and Rachel apartment to gather everyone for an important event at his museum. However, no one is ready, regardless only having 22 minutes remaining for them to get into their formal attire. Phoebe arrives at the apartment fully dressed and ready to go, but during Joey and Chandler’s argument, Joey accidentally flings hummus onto Phoebe’s dress. She tries to ask Monica what gets out hummus, but Monica was too distracted with her own problems. Rachel then tries to find something else for Phoebe to wear. After Chandler comes back from the bathroom, he finds that Joey took his chair while he was up. They argue over the chair until Ross orders Chandler to get dressed first.
When he does, Joey surrenders the chair but takes the cushions with him. However, Chandler had already taken his revenge by hiding all of Joey’s underwear. Joey promises to do the “opposite” and emerges wearing everything Chandler owns. Ross finally steps in and bans them, and indeed everyone else from the event. Now in season 3, episodes 3 “The Pen” in Seinfeld, Jerry and Elaine got to Florida to visit Jerry’s parents Morty and Helen at the Pines. They’re planning on staying over for the weekend to go scuba diving. Then Morty and Helen friend, Jack and Doris come over to write Morty a check for a previous night’s dinner and Jerry notice Jack’s pen. When Jerry asks Jack about it, Jack tells him that it can write upside down and that astronauts use it in space. Jack offers his pen to Jerry, but Jerry refuses his offer several times but Jack kept insisting and Jerry gave in.
When Jack and Doris left, Helen asks Jerry why he took the pen and says he should give it back Now, Jack returns and Jerry returns the pen back, however, Morty scold Jack for “taking Jerry’s pen.” Between these two sitcoms, it shows how crazy it can get. Just between your friends or family and your family friends, it can get pretty crazy and wild. While Seinfeld pride herself/himself on their diverse storyline and his New York City friends, nevertheless, Friends revolve around relationships and their friendships. In addition to these two sitcoms, there was this quote that captured my eyes, it said “Laughter will always be the best medicine.”Anything you do in life, you always have to watch something to laugh about or when you’re feeling down. Laughter is the best thing to get over something when you need to. That’s why there are always sitcoms to help you laugh out loud, and help you heal inside.
