Ross has found out about Chandler and Monica's relationship and is angry. Although, when he finds out that they are in love with each other he is happy with their relationship. Joey is dating a girl that keeps on hitting him (although the hitting is friendly, they punches are still quite hard). Ross finishes moving into his new apartment and the President of the Tenants Committee asks for a $100 donation (for the handyman who is retiring), as a thank you. Ross does not want to give the money as he just moved in and it's against his principles. Because everyone in the building now hates Ross, he decides to have a party to get the people in the building to like him again, but no one comes. Chandler gets all worried about commitment when everyone is joking about him and Monica getting married and having children so he gets into a fight with Monica about commitment. To say sorry he proposes to Monica but Monica makes him realize how stupid that is. Joey eventually breaks up with Katie (... Written by IMDb-Joe

The One with the Girl Who Hits Joey
14 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode Ross moves in to his new apartment and already gets into trouble with his neighbours. Although he is absolutely right. It is pretty funny though how he plans to throw a party for everyone to learn how great he is or how he eats the cake and is caught doing it because of all the cream on his lips

Monica and Chandlert have a conflict. And I don't see how he is wrong at it. Monica is indeed obsessed with marriage and babies. She dumped a guy she "loved" because the idea of kids is more important to her than being with someone she loves. So why should Chandler believe that she sees him as something else than potential sperm donor? Of course at the end he showed how whipped and dumb he is when he proposed to her....

And there is some nice humor in the tiny girlfriend of Joey that hits him. Especially in the scene where her and Rachel are hitting each other and Rachel ends up kicking her!
