Possibly the best season

"Season 4 could be the best season of "Friends", which is saying a lot, as this is, in my opinion and in the opinion of many others, the best show ever. It has had excellent ratings for years, and continues to be consistently funny every year. Sure, it has its low points, but even "Seinfeld" had episodes that weren't that funny.Season 4 has such classics as TOW the Embryos, TOW the Worst Best Man Ever, and my personal favorite, TOW Chandler in a Box (Michael Vartan fans, this is the episode where he appears as Richard's son). These episodes alone make the DVD worth having. Now add 21 hilarious episodes to those, and that makes this the best buy ever. If you're a "Friends" fan, this is a must-have."
Season 4 The Best Season!!!!

"In my opinion the fourth season of friends has to be the funniest of all of them for these reasons- ross & rachel getting back together(for a minute), the one where pheobe thinks the spirit of her mother is in a cat, also she has her brothers babies for him, ross meets emily and decides to propose, rachel in turn gets jealous, chandler and joey throw ross an engagement party that goes sour when the engagment ring becomes missing and ross says the wrong thing at his wedding!!! Plus the cast goes to london. Now this is only a taste of what season four is all about, you'll have to buy it to see the rest and it's totally worth the money . well enjoy"
Still one of the best

"Though Friends is admittedly getting a bit dated, in watching through the seasons once again, I am reminded of just why I loved this show so much. The brilliant writing, the chemistry and comedic talents of the actors, and the outrageous and irresistible characters add up to such an enjoyable viewing experience.
Season four is notable for the continuation of the Ross and Rachel saga, which ultimately culminates in Ross's marrying Emily but saying Rachel's names during his vows. The season serves to show how out of sync Rachel and Ross are and how really deluded they can be when they each try to convince themselves that they no longer feel anything for the other.
The gem of this season, though, is Phoebe becoming a surrogate mother for her brother and his wife. This means that we get to see more of Giovanni Ribisi as her hilarious brother and it is the season that had quite possibly one of the funniest lines in television, in which Frank Jr. exults in the news that his sister is pregnant with his baby. It also provides fodder for some very funny pregnancy gags, such as watching Rachel and Monica's well-intentioned shower for Phoebe go horribly awry.
This season also grants us some conflict between Joey and Chandler and especially helps to develop Chandler's character a bit further. When Chandler crosses the line with Joey's girlfriend Kathy, we see just how angry Joey can be--and also how generous and concerned for his friend's happiness. It's never been a secret that Chandler is afraid of commitment but his relationship with Kathy shows just how neurotic Chandler can be.
Perhaps best of all, this season really ends with a bang when Monica and Chandler finally get together. There had been hints throughout the series up to that point but the revelation that the two of them slept together is still a big surprise."
