Episode cast overview, first billed only:
The Zoo Keeper
Mr. Lipson
'Monkeyshine' Guy
Security Guard (as Lawrence A. Mandley)


Joey's first fan-mail -for his character, Dr. Drake Ramore- is from Erika Ford, who sounds like a crazy stalker, so Chandler and he are scared when she turns up, but given her looks he accepts to dine together- enough for her to think she's Drake's fiancée. Hunky Rob Donan invites Phoebe to play songs for kids in the public library, but her brutally honest lyrics shock the parents. After seeing a monkey like Marcel in a commercial, Ross decides to visit him in the San Diego Zoo, where he's officially told the capucin died but hears the truth from a hush-hush caretaker: he's in a movie being shot in New York so they all go there... Written by KGF Vissers
