If you’re a fan of sitcoms, you’ve probably heard of Modern Family. “Las Vegas,” the 18th episode of season five, airing in March 2014, follows some of the cast as they navigate Vegas.

In 1999 the Friends episode “The One in Vegas” parts one and two aired, taking the iconic group out of their usual spot in Central Perk and into The Strip.

Like many successful sitcoms, this episode features a variety of mishaps, including Rachel spilling a drink on Ross’ crotch and Ross drawing a mustache on Rachel whilst she was sleeping.
