Storyline

Ross is tired of living alone but doesn't want a roommate at his age so he adopts the capucin monkey Marcel. Marcel is cute in everybody's eyes, except cleaning freak Monica who returns little of the monkey's love. With Paolo about to return to Rome, it looks like New Year's Eve will see the friends desperate for someone to kiss at midnight, so Chandler launches a pact for them all not to kiss anyone. However, Rachel learns Paolo can be back early, Monica asks her ex Fun Bobby and Chandler invites his hellish ex Janice. Joey met a single mother shopping, so Ross fears to be the only single left after Phoebe hooks up with scientist David. Written by KGF Vissers

Another So So Episode
19 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a Thanksgiving episode we get a New Years Eve episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: The gang make a pact not to take any dated to a New Years Eve party at Monica and Rachel's. But one by one the all break it except Ross. Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) has her new boyfriend Paulo flying in, Pheobe (Lisa Kudrow) starts dating a scientist (Hank Azaria) who she wants to take, Chandler (Matthew Perry) runs to his safety net of Janice (Maggie Wheeler) Joey (Matt Le Blanc) invites and single mum he just met whilst Monica (Courtney Cox) invited her old boyfriend fun Bobby!

Another so so episode, Maggie Wheeler is always fun as Chandlers annoying girlfriend Janice. Jennifer Aniston joins Courtney Cox in being very cold in this episode.
