Storyline

Chandler is greatly appreciated by his boisterous boss Doug, but finds it unsettling to receive the highest praise in the form of systematical swatting of his posterior, to the point of its pain and his colleagues' envy... Millionaire Pete chose as his new challenge after business to 'conquer' the brutal martial art of Ultimate Fighting, but despite an expensive entourage his confidence is so obviously and utterly misplaced that Monica can't watch his physical pain and public humiliation, even makes a breaking point of his persistence... Rachel gave her blessing to Phoebe presenting Ross with her friend Bonnie as date, without realizing she's no longer eerily bold, in fact quite to Ross's taste... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Pete's opponent in his first UFC fight is Tank Abbott. At this point in his career, Abbott was a headliner; it is unlikely he would be matched against someone making his debut. See more »

Quotes

Pete: [about becoming the Ultimate Fighting Champion] One day, kids will wonder who'd win in a fight: me or Superman. Of course I can't beat Superman, but you know, kids are stupid.
