Gary wants to ask Phoebe to move in with him. Phoebe is freaked because it's so soon and asks Chandler to make him afraid of commitment so Gary won't ask her. Joey and Ross throw a ball back and forth without dropping it for hours. Rachel buys a very expensive naked cat. Monica joins the boys in their ball throwing game. Rachel's cat isn't as cute as Rachel thought it would be but the store won't take it back. Phoebe agrees to move on with Gary. Rachel sells the cat for $1,500 to poor Gunther. . Phoebe breaks up with Gary because he shot a bird. Monica, Chandler, Joey and Ross have been throwing the ball all night when Phoebe puts down the ball, refusing to play. Written by Anonymous
